Probably it won't be sucking down more fuel, as the improved lube might be decreasing friction and the losses associated to it.

Hey,

I would suggest the unagi scooter, it is a little on the pricey side but it last really long and has really good reviews. Hope that helps.

Best,

Any scooter or e-bike will benefit from a fairing and tail box.

Is it a scooter or a motorcyle?, best of both in my opinion, doesn't seem to get much airtime on this site.

It's somewhat more rugged than the majority of scooters.

The new Hunter/Trail Cub looks even more robust. No news yet as to availability in the UK, emails to Honda and independent importers have been sent.

And closer in appearance to a more conventional motorcycle instead of a scooter.

Old thread revival time yet again. My 2013 PCX150 has averaged 103.0 US MPG(43.8KM/L) over the past 5,740 miles(9,238KM). I have the Honda tall windscreen and rear top box. I ride a mix of rural roads(80-90KM/H) and in town. It rides 2 up comfortably holding 90KM/H even on hills. Love this little bike.
