    I see them all over Europe and they absolutely haul ass.

    We have them here but they are expensive and not very popular. Most people here need/want a scooter to commute daily and need under seat storage and an area in floorboard by there feet. It's just not as functional as a traditional scooter. I agree they are fast and probably a lot of fun.

    The Kymco AK550 is popular here and beginning to make strides in the US but they are expensive also. Not much difference in a scooter price and a motorcycle price now.

    Yeah, I couldn't see one of these for urban traffic... expressways, maybe, but two wheels in rush-hour traffic is never fun.

    The place I've seen these ADV scooters the most are in the Alps... and the riders were hauling ass!
