Is a 150cc scooter enough to go up Genting? Anybody have experience?

 

Yes. it will not be fast, but it will get you there. A South Korean guy called Wan Lee (google him) rode a 50cc Honda Ruckus across the US, including a crossing over the Rocky Mountains. If a 50cc can do it, so can a 150cc. Just don't expect to blast your way up fast.

Thanks. Slow is okay, but will it be dangerous? What if halfway cannot go up anymore :)

The bike is a PGO GMax 150 scooter. Can make it up Genting? and with pillion?

 

going up should not be a problem. i took my wife up mountain in chiang mai with 125 CC scooter.

 

coming down might give you some problem especially with pillion. your brake will overheat if you overuse it since scooter can't perform engine brake. do take break here and there to cool the brake down.

I think the lack of engine brake plus the added weight of a pillion on the downhill can be dangerous. If you brake constantly, the scooter will be at risk of getting brake fade, in which the brake rubber pads hardens due to heat and fails to grip properly. I would say 1 person should be OK, but with pillion, I'm not so sure it's safe because added weight means more and harder braking. Maybe other bros experienced with scooters can comment.
