I tell you what. That thing is ugly BUT I want one. But only if it is the 180 version. I'm a die hard classic guy but that thing beats the hell out of the PK ranch that is your garage.

To this point, Diamo has broght nothing but Cinese built crap to this market. All of the tooling for Italjet has gone to Kinetic in India. I will gladly sit down and eat the first 250cc four stroke that does a true 95mph in a dragster chassis. Smoke and mirrors, every scooter got'em.

If memory serves..... didn't Scootervillain also promise to eat the first "new" Lambretta that was sold in this country? Hmmmm, is this how he stays so skinny?

I'd still love to sink my teeth into one of those Lambrettas. Not gonna happen.

Ya right.

Isn't that the same prototype that's be around for a couple years? I think they are getting their mileage out of that one.

I think this is a newer version than the one they debuted at Indy a couple years ago.

OK I think you are right but it still looks UGLY!

Click on the pic and check it out. YUCK.

It would be hard to eat a scooter but it would be harder to eat an ugly one.

the wheels are too big. what is up with how bent it looks through the seat? Lambretta with scholiasts maybe? I think good retro designs can be done but this is not one imho.

Pitch the seat (Ugliest. Seat. Ever.) and add a pair of solo seats and I could live with the rest of it.

A pair of solo seats? Maybe for that dragster vintage look.

I like Dragsters - the most interesting designs are the ones that are a bit out there, that don't sell to the masses. How many Joker or Classic scooter clones do we really need anyway?

I rode a Dragster 180 for a season. It wasn't bad. Handling wasn't as good as expected, but it was cool to be able to brake midway into a turn. It needs rearsets. The engine was class, 'though I prefer gears. It turned heads, that's for sure. The worst of the problems was the lack of spares, which was a real problem as the bike literally fell to bits over the summer. The frame is nice, the plastic mounts and such are not, and many of these broke, worst of all the headlight mount. The front shock also broke.
