My CF Moto/QLink Pegasus 150cc Scooter Review

by Don Miller
(Oak Ridge, TN)

I purchased a new 2008 CF Moto/QLink Pegasus 150cc scooter at the Yamaha/Honda dealer in Knoxville to ride to work. I was immediately surprised at the excellent power level and reliable engine.


I drove it to work and on short trips for fun, achieving a total of 5000 miles in two years. The only maintenance issue was a loose electrical connector that caused the fuel gauge to not read correctly. It was quickly fixed under the original two year warranty.

The scooter was comfortable and stable to ride on most surfaces, due in part to the large wheels. I ultimately traded for a Yamaha Majesty 400 because I wanted to ride with a local motorcycle club occasionally and to have a larger storage capability.

The Pegasus will easily cruise at 60 mph and the water cooling always worked well in our hot Tennessee summers. Oil changes are easy for owners to do. For the price, it would be hard to find a better choice of motor scooter at 150cc.

Still Pegasus 150 cc NEW
by: Mike

I have 8 K on my 1 owner 2006 bought with 2 k on it.

A couple oil changes later and " Lots of Fun " , here we are with Winter 2016.

Previous owner had the Dealer put new hoses , water pump and coolant in it , then no more over heats .

I had put a Iridium NGK plug in it .

Now it sits under several covers , buttoned up , and a 60 watt trouble light in there on the deck .

I will ride it when I can for the Winter , Cold / Clear , with High Performance Stabull in a full tank of gas .

Come on APRIL ! ! !

Yes it does go 65 mph NEW
by: Mike

I have a 2006 Qlink Pegasus 150cc and it will pull

65 mph and cruise at 55 mph .

Unusual ?

That's one , of several reasons , why I bought Qlink .

Water Cooled can pull slightly more horsepower ,

than it's Air Cooled Cousins .

Not so proud owner of a 150 Pegasus NEW
by: Anonymous

I have a 2007 Pegasus that I bought used In 2012. It only has 3000 KM or 1800 miles on it. It ran OK when I first bought it. Then it would start but wouldn't pull. I had the emissions hoses removed at a shop. That helped, but now it still won't exceed 55 mph on flat ground. I tried changing the jet size to 1.02 mm to get it more gas. It runs better, but not faster. It jerks like it's starving for fuel. I feel a Japaneese bike coming my way soon.

Are you sure?
by: Bill

Are you sure you have a 150cc? The water cooling and easy 60 mph sounds more like a 250cc.

Thanks
by: Kathi, Site Owner

Thanks for taking the time to share this motor scooter review, Don. It's always nice to hear details of what people do and don't like about their scooters.

Ultimately, true scooter lovers often do trade up to larger, more powerful models, so they can go and do even more on their scooters.

Thanks again!

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...
