The scooter got about 2.4L/100kms (aftermarket 70cc), while my Virago is getting 1.9L/100kms.
When stock, the scooter at best did 2.2L/100kms (stock 50cc)

The Virago is a 250cc V-Twin 4-stroke
The BWS was an aftermarket high-comp 70cc hemi 2-stroke.
So what do you think the Yamaha BWS-R or the Honda Ruckus will do?

My scooter was a 2001 Honda Dio. It had the Euro smoked rear light conversion and the Euro smoked sidemarkers. Since it was a smaller scooter than the others on the road, it was pretty quick (as far as scooters go). On $3.50 94 octane i would do about 200kms-210kms. It was VERY economical. I mainly used it to go to the corner store to pick up a case of beer amongst other things

I rarely wore a helmet, never wore a jacket and never had the 2 mirrors on. I got stopped one time only by the police in my shorts and wife beater and all he basically did was give me the lecture about safety (no helmet...) and sent me on my way My insurance for the whole year was $27 for 1 way/fire/theft & vandalism.

The new BWS, completely stock probably get 2.3L/100kms range (due to higher comp ratio as compared to old one)
The Ruckus probably around 1.5L/100kms.

But keep in mind that the Ruckus is a 4-stroke, so much better economy, but about 1/4th the power a same size 2-stroke.

Scooters R fun ! I used to rock a Honda Elite 50 for a summer.

I would definitely go for a yamaha BW-s now though, and get it classed as a moped - No safety needed or M1. Plus you don't really need insurance if you wanna take the risk.

Buy a CRF50 and put a Baja Designs street legal kit on it. Way more fun and huge aftermarket support for it(Cheaper too):
