Just done the 7500 mile service on my second Zoomer. This is a great bike, hence it's my second. There are cheaper 50cc 4 strokes - the Zoomer costs £2000 otr. But that's all they are - cheaper scooters. My Zoommer starts on electric every day without fail 1st time whatever the weather and even after being left standing for a month. I have NEVER used the kickstart on either bike. I commute just over 30 miles per day, in both 30mph and 40 mph zones, so I have changed the variator. This is the... (read more)

Honda Zoomer - Fantastic bike for in and around town.
Great looks - always getting "that looks fun, where did you get it" comments
Very reliable (this 50cc Honda engine is one of the most prolific) even during the winter.
Good acceleration - always fast from lights and the smooth 4-stroke engine doesn't scream like other scooters
Handles well and good grip even in wet.
Lots of storage space
Anti-vandal (there's nothing to hide on it, so kids don't pop the seat like on Vespa's etc)
Cheap to... (read more)

Really good build qaulity. good mileage. If they were to make a model with a bigger engine then it would be a great bike. maybe a 125cc would make it but a 50cc is just a bit slow but maybe thats just me.
the space below the seat is great for carrying things. i used it to carry a rcksack when going to my work and it done a great job.
I think this is great value for money and it does not use lots of fuel. A full tank lasted me about half a week driving back and forward to my... (read more)

simply a good way to get from A to B! (and its quite funny to!)
We had 2 zoomers since 2005 (when they just came out) and been driving them in rough terrain (motorcorss tracks etc :D LOL) and long distances without no problem at all! the yellow one just past 1250 "mil" or 20 000miles without ANY problems! my brother crashed the red one, but it kept on going! he gave the car some nasty marks, women and driving... :/ (my brother drives like one)
most peoples thinks the price... (read more)

A few months ago, I installed the Polini variator kit with a mix of heavy and medium roller weights. This has put the top speed up to about 35mph on the level (with no wind) and raised fuel economy to about 120mpg, as it seems to rev lower flat out than it used to. Still, it's lost about 1-2mph off the top end in the last few weeks again. This happened before. I will check the rollers for wear in about another 500miles, but they've only done 2500 miles. Overall, I'd really recommend this... (read more)

I have had the Honda Zoomer now for two years and it's used almost every weekday. It has now covered almost 10,000 miles. Around 4,000 miles it developed a misfire which resulted in severe loss of power and stalling on idle. This was diagnosed by the dealer as a broken spark plug, but the same thing began to occur again towards the next service (7,500 miles). In all my 25 years of biking (on and off road) I have never had a broken spark plug! I also had one incident of the bike being very... (read more)

The Honda Zoomer is an excellent bike overall, good handling, good brakes (considering they're drums), easy to ride and no hassle to maintain. 10W30 oil is standard, 4-stroke lawnmower oil available from DIY stores. (read more)

The little Honda Zoomer scooter has good looks (many people find it very interesting, young or old). It is extremely easy to live with.
Starting is faultless and even soundless, and driving around town and also on longer distances (I travel to work over 30 km distance) is done with sufficient comfort.
Acceleration is almost up to tuned (2 stroke) level and surprises many scooter drivers or car drivers. Top speed with a Malossi variator is now +55 km/h, originally 44 km/h.
Taking corners... (read more)
