  1. Hi Nouvo riders, I am thinking of getting a Nouvo Elegance 135. Some questions to ask first. I know bro bigcow is selling but I prefer the silver, blue and maroon combination colour scheme personally.

     

    1) What is the max/full distance it can travel before petrol dries up? :cheeky:

    2) Can it travel comfortably at 100-110km/hr? Or what's the max speed you tried?

    3) What is the most comfy cruising speed?

    4) FC range from hard riding and conservative riding?

    5) What are the maintenance costs and types of stuff to look out for for Nouvos?

     

    I am not an aggresive rider, just wants a really reliable bike to commute.

    Last but not least, anyone selling your tri-colour Elegance? :angel:

    Otherwise, might have to make an appointment with bro bigcow after all..

     

    Hi bro ! Long time never hear from u liao. hope u stil remember me, that was abt 2 years ago. I keep asking u alot of qns regarding piaggio skipper. sold the x9 already, nw thinking of this scooter also lor.

  2. @@

     

    gt an quote of $5.9 otr..

     

    yet gt bro jixiang say otr $5250, bro seoulnow says $4850, nw bro alifk69 say $4800............

     

    i assume my years of riding and age are greater than most of u lor. what the.. i need to find out more then..

     

    thanks bros for your sharing :)

  3. Oh okie.Thanks!

    By the way me and my friend just bought it.$6k otr.

     

    wow, that fast. shld wait for me haha. nope, still considering. But I got a quote already from one of the advertisers here. still thinking, thinking and thinking..

  4. hmmm just explain to him lah. OTR = on the road; means include everything liao. otr will vary, largely due to only insurance diff.

     

    btw that time (june) ban hon is $5250, meaning that now should be slightly lower. Btw anyone just bought ? care to share the machine or otr price here? thanks.

  5. Hi bro Echo,

    Welcome to this b-bone family..

    Belt & Rollers can last 10000km. This bike is for daily use, so my mileage is quite high.

    Agreed. I think everybike has it own + n - lo.. Rain can wear raincoat so no big deal leg expose to me. lol..

    I heard a forumer here ever saw a b-bone with sound system installed. But i never see it myself. What he said is, he saw a b-bone with sound system put on top of the fuel panel.. Maybe u can ask those senior here. :btw:, i thought mostly people like to put speaker in rear box? Get a Givi slim box behind lo.. Then ur b-bone will look cute n able to put ur sound system.:lol:

    JBL..Mohawk..SoundStream..Sony..Pioneer.. Alphine.. etc.. lol..

    So ur b-bone bcum boom-bone.. All the way boom boom boom. So nice.:thumb:

     

    Hi bro Ho... thanks, but not yet lor... havent get the bone yet..

    only 10k? cannot be lah.. best to check and double confirm. u knw y? next time I got a bro whose gilera runner, the shop mechanic says can only last 10k and after he told us, we are surprised lol. gilera belt can last (if i remember) 25k ! and my previous ride x9 can last over 30k... so cannot be lah... even other models, where got such short distance lor. unless b-bone exceptionally case?

     

    As for speakers, i see the possibility to install at the floor panel, however.. the sound wave travel path will be awkward. my previous ride, the speaker at glove compartment, that as to say at ard below my chest level (in sitting posture) the sound path is quite gd. however if bottom, i afraid the sound wave will be much reduced when moving over 80km/h.

     

    Nope, those who install at helmet box is because they don't have the front panel (like x8, x9 or rather maxi scooter).. sound quality will be much affected compared with the latter.. got to look more at the structure to get the idea first.. plus gd measurement is needed sia..

     

    all the way boom-boom-boom? sure.... minus the tweeter, 2 speakers, 2 amp and 1 sub. Good lah! even harley sure turn head also lol......then wack his throttle fully ! lol

     

     

     

    Ride safe, Keep Ur Bone (literally also) Safe

  6. bro ho, the belt/rollers can last for how many km?

     

    Btw I got a quote price but I will get it now for some reasons.......

     

    I just want a gd small reliable scooter for now and since this little one went as far up as Thailand, why not?

     

    Its CBS seems gd, however for some reasons, usually I prefer dual disc for front brake..

    Looks is nice. but not as (rain) protective as maxi or other scooters due to exposed foot pegs.

     

    Overall got + and - lah. But it will be a gd small bike for moving ard the streets, should be fine with me lor. However I really hope speakers can be installed lor. At the glance, it will going to be a hard work to position the speaker and amplifier lor. Then , need voltmeter also. alot of considerations and planning...

     

    Hope 1 day can meet some of u guys, see and feel your bones lol.... better lor :)

  7. Thanks for the prompt response bro ho..

     

    Wow the cost of belt and rollers sound great difference comparing with piaggio. (have been riding piaggio scooter for the past few years) That is a PLUS factor...

     

    But the only factor to consider is the cost of machine price.

    Seem on the high side for a 125cc.. but an arguable factor though can be on culture and customisable buying.

     

    I will be going down to CKA now and check out the price since I am going down market to makan lol

     

    1 thing very good is... if the bike break down at my house, I can push to CKA without towing.... only 100m away lol. Absolutely a PLUS-PLUS factor..

     

    Fyi I am considering piaggio FLY150 too. That seems to be the cheapest scooter of all times ! for a 150cc ! However I have enough of piaggio expensive maintenance......

     

    Btw how is the handling also?

     

    Nevertheless hope to join u guys OTR with this little boney ride.

  8. Hi all boners

     

    I think I might be keen to get this bone afterall. As such, some qns before considering...Thanks for your time to answering the following qns...

     

    (1) What is the cost for belt and rollers change?

    (2) this is air-cooled right?

    (3) FC ? as in per litres

    (4) Do you guys see the possibility of installing sound system?

    (5) When travel expressway, will crosswind affect alot? i know it will but to what extent?

    (6) current machine price?

     

    Btw saw a bone just now again, at night 10+ Jurong polyclinic traffic light. In fact, I have been seeing many bones recently in my area... hmmm hahah CKA in my area also. should be some of you guys I guess.

     

    But 1 thing I noticed and a bit concerned, the engine sounds quite underpowered when moving off man..... any idea the origin of engine? .......

     

    But I will be going down to CKA to ask someday. because for now, I just need something for transportation, and just nice to say I love everything abt Korea lol.

     

    Lastly, do you guys have problems with CKA? I mean their after-sales service? There have been a few cases that I have read before in the forum concerning their service standards.... As such, this will be my main concern too..

     

    Hope for replies from the boners here.

     

    Bony Cheers.

    ** Update with Laguna & Informatics

  10. I wish to apologise to botak at wonderful motors, due to my remark, has seriously caused alot of inconveniences and doubts about his reliability and working ability.

     

    he is one of the best mechanic which i have mentioned before so many times, especially in the skipper and x9 thread, but because of a mis-communication, i have wrongly give remarks that have affected him.

     

    i sincerely apologise to him and this misunderstanding has been checked, cleared and closed.

     

    btw Happy CNY to all the x9ers :)

  11. i tried not starting my bike for 1 week also no prob le... echo is ur battery weak as in that it cannot holds charge? or ur head unit is direct connection to battery 1?

     

    u know when ur batt is dead means towing. of course i dont think i will risk that.

     

    nope head unit cannot direct connect to batt....... even my voltmeter is not too..........

     

    alright anyway this is considered a 'red-plate' bike to me, and i do warm up regularly. shouldnt be a problem

  12. hmmm ... whose batt can last 2 day max?? 1 week plus and still working is normal ah.:cheeky:

     

    i not sure abt mine.. but i think can last maybe 4 to 5 days. but 1 week plus is super strong. u mean u using energiser or duracell? lol

  13. Diff is Wm got help us wash the whole clutch and re lub all ball bearing.

    Wash in the sense of tear apart all the things.(like clutch, he take out all parts and clean. not blow only)

     

     

     

    i change 2 times and he did that too, except he was busy at that time, he serviced that later. It's rare that u will find a mechanic that will ever service this 'problematic' thing. That's why I always go back to him for a year and a half liao :)
