So....I can't help but notice the date on that story was from '09, and I don't think I've seen any Simba's running around just yet.

Ooops ! I didn't read it all and didn't notice the date either. I was doing a search most popular motorcycle in the world and that came up. Never the less, it IS the worlds best seller.

Not too shabby. Plenty of room for Low Cost and Reliable scooters. (haven't seen any either ).

The most popular is the Honda Cub, the sym has come to the US and sadly hasn't been too popular. Although it is a bitchin' scooter.

Every beginner should start on a bike like that. Australia's equivalent is the Postie, the CT110.

Another attempt at retro. May work in getting more people on scooters (or back on motorcycles). Innocent enough, yet 50 mph can still kill you.

I had a Honda C50 when I was 16, in the UK you could ride a 50cc at 16 years of age and my first girlfriend bought me a 10 year old one for my 16th birthday. Then I discovered that the C90 90cc engine would slot right in. So I got one and sneakily slotted it right in. The best 20 quid I ever spent. A lot of the other kids had Yamaha FS1E`s and Suzuki AP 50`s and would spend a fortune on 65cc kits, bigger carbs and expansion pipes etc but my C50 (90) used to flog them all into the weeds.
