“Best motorcycle i have ever owned”

Written on: 18/10/2021 by Papaballoon (1 review written)

Ok.. addressing the "bad" from other writers. Windshield. Yep.. the stock plexiglass sample is not adequate. I bought an aftermarket. For a while i used a handlebar mount shield from my previous bike. That worked great. But it is certainly no worse than any other bike i have owned. Acceleration. Nope.. not a drag racer. I have never been a speed racer. So no problem there.. it is adequate for its mission. You can change the weights in the variator to change the character of the "gear… Read Full Review

“2006 Yamaha Morphous CP250V ”

Written on: 16/11/2017 by ScottyScoot701 (1 review written)

I am one of a handful of lucky people to have owned a Yamaha Morphous, or to have even known what they are for that matter. I loved mine for the past six years, and for most of that time the Morphous was my one and only vehicle; rain or shine. I bought it used at right around 3,480 miles on the odometer, and stupidly sold it last week on this day with 23,610 miles exactly. Mine was # 701, and am eyeing another for the future. Loved it's rare, strikingly good looks and the low-cost to operate… Read Full Review

“best motorcycle i have ever owned”

Written on: 07/04/2015 by 186Collins (1 review written)

I bought the 2007 liquid silver morphous with about 2700 mi on it. I have owned it for slightly over a yecomfortablear now (purchased in march 2014) abuy a short bikend have added 12000 miles to the thing in thatbikeare time. Only down side is tires wear Yes, quickly. About 10,000 miles is about it. But that is the nature is scooters in general. Complaints about speed are "accurate" but remember! This is a heavy scooter made for cruising and stability. If you want fast and nimble, buy… Read Full Review

“Morphous is the PERFECT scooter”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by Putnamtu56 (1 review written)

I Got one of the Morphous and I was deeply touched by the perfect design , very low center of gravity, and the trouble free smooth engine,I bought mine used with 30K miles on it, had great time riding it from Palm beach FL all the way to VA , best long motorcycle (scooter) ride I ever had, Got home and was very excited to take few things apart and check it out, (Variator) and belt , filters ,etc Everything was perfect , I agree with the gentleman who suggested to replace the roller wit lighter… Read Full Review

“Quality only Japan manufacturing can provide.”

Written on: 04/01/2013 by nedan (1 review written)

I owned an all brand Scooter sales and repair shop and have found the Morphous to be of the highest build quality and unnecessarily over engineered. 1st chance I got I bought one. All will benefit from slightly, 1-2 gram lighter rollers in the transmissions variator. I installed Sliders. These lighter sliders increased take off acceleration a noticeable amount without sacrificing top end. Still able to cruise 70-75 indicated mph. Although not the best of ergonomics. A quick adjustment of… Read Full Review

“Bringing out the beast out of your Morphus”

Written on: 21/07/2012 by motorsarge (1 review written)

I own a 2008 Morphus which I brought new. I have put almost 27,000 miles on mine in highway and the city. Here is some cheap tricks to upgrade your morphus. In the air filter airbox pull out the little rubber outside air intake tube. In the transmission varator remove two roller weights. Make sure they are opposite each other so the varator will remain balanced. Mine will get up 79mph before the rev limiter kicks in. Purchase 2 short pvc pipe sections and 2 longer metric bolts to raise… Read Full Review

What weight are the stock rollers? How difficult is it to get to them? I have a service manual but I'm a bit apprehensive about tearing the scooter down to remove or replace the weights.

“A 2006 used”

Written on: 02/02/2012

I had been looking for a quality used scooter since I decided that I was ready for childhood again, 64+. I've had two wheelers for close to 50 years but had really not had much activity over the last 20 years because I just didn't want to ride with the city crazies and had only had a 1978 Honda Express for putting around the neighborhood. But as we look toward retirement and moving to a more rural area I decided the time was right to get back into a larger scooter. I bought a scooter rather… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2010 by KLH (1 review written)

Not a Vmax but for the size engine Id call its acceleration "Lively" It rides smoothly, looks great, all one hears at speed is the wind.
The only downer on it might be the lack of seating space for the driver but that is rider specific.
I purchased the 2008 with only 600 miles for 2700 , so at that price Id call it a keeper… Read Full Review

“ Pros. ”

Written on: 25/06/2010

Pros.
* extremely smooth riding.
* low center of gravity.
* extremely stable at speeds.
* available torque above 40mph that other 250cc don't have.
* because of it's stability smoothness and torque band. It makes a very decent HW bike at speeds of 60-65mph.

Cons,
* Like virtually all maxi scoots,the lack of a decent backrest is a liability. The sitting position on most large scooters is comfortable for short rides but the feet out front position leaves you holding your self up a bit which… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2010

Just to let potential Morphous owners know, in spite of the claim by one of the reviewers below, that he is able to "leave most cars behind at stoplights" My experience as well as at least two pro reviewers online,tell a different story.
The only reason this person is able to leave cars behind at a light is because he is full on the throttle and the people driving cars are not aware they are is a race. The fact is the Morph 0-60 times hover around 18 seconds. Any 4 cyl economy box will… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/12/2009

Perhaps I have an issue with my Morphous but The acceleration and power leaves a lot to be desired. I own two Honda Helexs and Both are noticeably quicker with better hill climbing power.
Everything else about the Morphous is top notch. Extremely stable and feels much more confident than the Helixs. I also much prefer the ergonomics and seating/handle bar positioning. No more back aches and I have not experienced any numbness in my hands, Both issues are a constant on the Helix. The HW… Read Full Review

Yamaha has an excellent product and expect to see more of them on the street. I especially like that the seat is low to the ground. Easy for a short person like me to handle. Unique styling that sets it apart from the rest. Very good gas mileage. Currently getting around 63 MPG… Read Full Review

Mariered's Response to 387714_AbelO's Review

Written on: 30/12/2013

I bought a morphous. I am female that is 5 ft 1 in tall. I love it. I do feel awkward when i am with my biker friends buts it easy for me to drive. I can keep up with the big bikes if i have too. Comfortable and i love the storage. Actually people find it so different that people will walk past the big harleys and look at this cool looking scoot. So i am having fun with it. Plus its still being built for japanese, so you can order and have parts drop shipped if need be. Be sure to check out youtube and see what the japanese have done to this awesome custom scoot.

Written on: 21/03/2007 by retinajec (1 review written)

The Yamaha Morphous 250 is perfect for its mission which is urban commuting. My girlfriend, not a motorcycle person, took one look at it and fell in love with it. The engine and transmission are smooth as silk, and although there is only 250cc below you the scooter will leave most cars behind at stoplights. A small rear trunk for storage, larger underseat storage area for a full helmet, and the chrome railing around the rear seat is perfect for attaching my $7 elastic cargo net from Walmart so… Read Full Review
