A Lance Phoenix Scooter Model

A Lance Phoenix Scooter Model

I've had good experience with this. I've got 11,500 mi in about 1 1/2 years. I bought it in San Diego, and rode it about a year in the hilly area of north county. I was able to keep it garaged, and it stayed really nice. It scratched easily though.


I relocated to New Orleans and have to keep it out in the weather, and the rust shows through on some metal parts. It is a pain in the a** to change the headlight bulb, which I had to do 2 times so far.

I had the drive belt go at about 10,000 mi, and found a shop that would work on it. It also had the exhaust come loose at the manifold, and the shop was able to fix it. Both fixes were reasonable cost.

I am able to commute on city streets here in the New Orleans area, so it really works well. One has to watch the weather closely here! I get about 90 miles per gallon, about 3 round trips to work on a 1 gallon tank of gas.

The trunk that came with it had a lousy lock system that broke early. I replaced with a mail order trunk that worked great, but was heavier. The whole rack broke last month, so I'm riding with out now. There is little other storage, but a lot can be carried between feet on the floor.

It cost me about $2,500 with taxes and stuff. I figure I've already saved $5 G on gas and depreciation on my Dodge 250 RAM I don't drive as much and it is fun.

NOT a cheap chinese scooter!
by: Yahoo!

I bought my 2008 Lance Phoenix (silver color) in April 2011 amazingly cheap with 752 miles on it. Brought it home to Boulder, CO and it ran very poorly--would stop dead after heating up. Local Sportique shop kept it for 2 weeks and couldn't figure out what was wrong (had a very POOR attitude toward scooters not their Taiwanese brands--kept telling me it was a "cheap" Chinese scooter)--only place to repair it.

I twice took it in and they REFUSED to change out the fuel and vacuum hoses--warned ME not to do it! It's the first thing I did--and it has run PERFECTLY since. I drove it up into the Rocky mountains TWICE--10,300' altitude! I get 70-90 mpg in city traffic, and 90-120 highway.
REALLY! Found it purrs like a kitten with a touch of Octane Booster w/jet fuel in it. LOVE THIS BIKE!

Yes, paint scratches easily, and the trunk lock broke early, but it starts up instantly, and has lots of power to get me out of unexpected situations--most people seeing it coming head-on think it is a full-sized MC. Love the 16" wheels!

Have put 1,500+ miles on it in last 2 months alone. Now relocated to Phoenix--my Phoenix has come "home" to Phoenix. Looking forward to exploring the desert with it. Movers broke my windshield--can't understand people who drive scooters w/o windscreen.

If you find a Lance Phoenix a decent price--BUY IT! Be sure to change out the hoses, as the fuel/vacuum system is critical to these bikes.

Wow, 80 MPG is incredible, even on a 150cc. How do you do it?

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...
