    I've heard the seat is hard at first and takes time to break in

    See if there are weights on the tires. Even though they are only 12 inch tires they should be balanced, especially the front. Even if there are weights, I would have the dealer re-check it cause that wobble might eat your tire up.

    Dang. That's not good. A lot of 125 scooters go 55, some 60 mph. I was expecting 62 mph from the Grom. They claim just under 65 after all. 55 isn't even close to 65.

    He's not hitting more than 7k rpm's until he breaks it in more I guess. It will go faster when it gets up to 9k.

    145 pounds 5,3". and i can easily get to 58-59 WOT on a flat.

    the only time i was able to hit 62mph was going down a freeway hill.

    i maybe wrong but i dont see it going 70 mph stock. it is fast enough for me.

    if i wanted faster i would have bought a cbr250. :-)

    Chill folks he said he's got. 50 miles on it and it sounds like he's not reving it to redline. 7500 rpm isn't redline.

    If wot for ikwan78 is only 59, I am still disappointed. False advertising? This is not just under 65 mph, and if we are talking speedo speed, it is more like 55 mph top speed actual which is 10 miles under 65 mph. This will not do. Sorry.
