Adiva ADtre owner's thread


Recommended Posts

The rider managed to ride the bike from accident scene to the bike shop, therefore, I believe the bike still can be repair.

Greetings everyone.

 

Pardon my intrusion into this thread.

I am writing to seek Adiva's owners' advice. I am thinking of purchasing an Adiva AD3 200cc and would really appreciate everyone's objective feedback on my enquiries.

 

A bit about myself.

License: 2B only

Current Bike: SYM Joyride

 

I am thinking of the above purchase very much because of

 

1. 3 wheel for extra safety and stability

2. Shelter and inbuilt storage

 

However I have received some feedback from my brother (who works in a bike shop) and he managed to gather some feedback

1. KYMCO engine is unreliable and breaks down easily.

2. Spare parts are rare and usually comes at premium, and only available at the main dealer.

3. Fuel consumption is heavy.

 

Additionally while I am not a 'high speed' rider (am content with sustainable 80-90kmph), can this bike handle itself well on expressway?

Thank you in advanced for the feedback and any additional feedback is well appreciated.

Your brother either a newbie in bike industry or must be working at rival bikeshop against Taiwanese bike.

 

1) BMW C650 engine is made by Kymco, Kawasaki latest scooter using Kymco engine.

2) Spare parts is much cheaper then European brand.

3) At 230kg, always with pillion. A 300cc scooter can archive 25-28 km/l of fuel consumption.

 

Had rode to Genting at average speed of 100 km/h, top speed at 120km/h.

(Ad3-200, top speed is about 105km/h)

Hey Andre, I truly appreciate your quick feedback to my queries. As for my brother, he has no vested interests and meant well for me. He can only relay what he hears and learn. It is comforting to know that other recognized brands are using kymco engines as well. Once again thank you

Check with you ya...120kmh is the top speed you ride to Genting or that's the fastest that the 300cc can go?

OLD NO GO, NEW NO COME.

      Hi People,
       
      I just contacted Auto Moto about their 3 wheeled scooter with a roof, and was thinking of bringing one of their scooters to Singapore. The scooter (150cc) costs USD 3800 retail, and I estimate from all the costs of COE and all other fees (Freight, Insurance........and documentation....etc), the OTR (on the road costs) will be under SGD 10000. This is much cheaper than the Adiva (two wheeler with roof) and the the Peugot MP3 (Three wheeler without roof), and it can be like a car. Protection from the rain, sits 2, and lotsa boot space for groceries (better than normal scooter or motor bike).
       
      I did the sums.........
      Cost (USD 3800) and Freight (USD600) : SGD 5720
      ARF + Custom duties : SGD 1950
      COE (Jan 2012) : SGD 1650
      Handling and other fees : SGD 650
       
      Total - SGD 9970.
       
      In a time of SKY HIGH prices for cars, this scooter (sits 2) is an excellent substitute for a car and public transportation.
       
      Check their site out.

      I am in process of ordering and importing one.
       
      Anyone want to join me? - volume order got discount
       
      If yes.........please indicate your interest by e-mailing me at [email protected]
       
      Please feedback, there is no commitment.......just seeing if there is interest in this scooter.
       
      Thanks!!!
       
      Cheers
      Conrad
