Hi... Has anyone ever heard of the 3-wheel Auto Moto Scooter? Any information would be of great help. I was considering the Honda SH150i also. Thanks!

Hi Jim... Thanks for your recent input. There is no doubt the Honda products are legendary in reliability, I have owned three of them. The Accord, the CRV, and now the Element.

I have checked their website out, you certainly do get a "good bang" for the buck. It does have a Honda GY6 Engine for what it's worth. However, it is assembled in China. I gather the company has a good support system which is good.

However, most say keep away from Chinese scooters, except a few. Anyone out there that has had experience in the way of ownership, or someone that is aware of someone that owns one can reach me via E-Mail, vito.francesco@att.net Thanks,Steve DeFrancesco New Haven,Ct.

Talk about apples and oranges. Auto Moto has a site and you can get all the specs for it there. The Honda SH 150i is about the ultimate 150cc scooter. Made in Italy, fuel injected, water cooled and graced with Honda reliability. It will last darn near forever. You have to ask yourself what you need, three wheels or a scooter that just runs and runs.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...


ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
