With the market for motorcycles here, it is VERY SURPRISING to find lack of professionalism here among TOP market leaders

here......loose bolts, no pre-delivery checks, lousy attitudes, more-interested-in- facbook-salespeople- have been observed in

many instances when we visit showrooms and service centres, I am just wondering why consumers tolerate this kind of nonsense.?????

 

If they persist in this kind of modus operandi, I suggest they sell their showrooms and set up stall at sungei road, it will definitely save them a lot of money and lousy reputations, because for the kind of attitude they have , sungei road befits their style.

 

Unfasten bolts and nuts pose a very SERIOUS danger to the riders and at the end of the day the buyers get hurt......bad.

 

If SIM LIM square can come up with a list of crooked shops, so can the Singapore bike forum......

 

Just remember , that not everyday is a SUNSHINE day in Singapore.

 

Bro chill la, at least the bolt I lost is due to vibration from the single cylinder. Kymco DT300 in TW using the same engine also commonly lost exhaust guard bolts.

 

Just wish to highlight this is common problem to be look out for. Only defect from factory on this bike I faced is the speedometer cable not connected upon collection, that's all.

 

So far so good doing almost 500kms.

Hey Bro.......No problem chilling out.....but its just that these people can get so much more business and respect if they just practice more professionalism in their business and conduct. It cost them nothing but gain so much more.

 

Perhaps these people can drop by Lexus Singapore and see how they do their business regardless of whether a sale is done...

 

It does not matter whether it is a bolt or not, the point is practicing due diligence in WHATEVER we do.......

 

This time it is a bolt, next time the tyre will fly off..............touch wood............sigh

Basically agreed with you but if we list down the crook bikeshops, probably 99% of the bike shop will be in the list. lol.

 

If 99% of the shop is on the list, then so be it, let the remaining 1% get the rest of the 99% of the business that these guys lost!!

Check with MAH if they bringing the gold colour. As for the 200, it can be ridden with a 2B license however I would advise to get a 2A license and go for the 300 model instead for more value to the purchase. As for the storage space, you will have plentiful as long as the roof is up.

This you need to check with MAH personally. You can go down to take a look at the boot size too.

Agreed, after week with the AD3 300 I would describe the power as adequate only.

As promised here are the pictures of the extended mudflap;

 

As you can see the original mudguard is as big or smaller then the tyre width.

IMAG0578.jpg

With resulted in very high spray when riding in the wet

IMAG0579.jpg

So I bought this mudflap extension meant for Superfour from LAB, however have to elongate the holes inwards with a file by about 1cm on each side.

I peeled the sticker away because I thought it was ugly

IMAG0581.jpg

Then after I thought it was too plain so I added a small sticker

Anyone riding the 200cc AD3? How is the power?

 

Just test ride my friend's ADtre 200. Only a short ride in the car park. Was surprised that the power is good, don't feel much different. Probably have to ride in high speed to compare.

I lost one exhaust cover bolt already... Need to go over with locktite too.

 

After read this post, I immediately check the exhaust cover bolts and found most of them quite loose. I tightened it immediately, thanks..:)

 

 

Is it nice or ugly? Feel free to let me know yr opinion!

Haven't found a solution yet. But not really willing to buy from online as it's more then $10++/pcs. Now looking for suitable rubber matts like those in car mat but without the boxes, to cut and custom made.

hey bros thanks for the info.. i think i might just go ahead to get the 200 model after i manage to sell off my current ride (not intending to upgrade to 2A license). My only concern right now is parking the bike as understand that some of you is saying that it can be quite strenuous. I'm 1.63m any tips or is it jus to avoid parking at slanted grounds? Reason i ask is cos my orevious rides are all around 130kg odd and i take a very very long time to park if its on slanted grounds due to strength issue (of cos not able to flat foot on the ground plays a role too i guess.. previous rides include tzm, vespa lx150ie, yamaha r15 v2).

Bro i had parked the bike on slanted slope two days ago and had the bike fall on me. The roof hit my face and caused lacerations on my cheek and lips. Luckily the bike did not fall all the way only about 45 degrees, it was no joke to lift the bike back up. If i don't go to gym regularly and my gf wasn't there to assist the bike will be lying on the ground and me underneath it. :cry:

 

So please be careful with this bike when you are not familiar with it yet.

 

FOR ALL ASKING FOR 200CC VS 300CC!

 

With regards to 200cc vs 300cc, I have come to a conclusion based on Andre's initial impression on 200cc and drawing on my experience thus far with the 300cc. The 200cc may fare reasonably for city riding but as the speed increases, the wind drag causes the power requirement to increase exponentially. This is especially evident as I try to ride between 95-110, the relation between throttle opening required and resistance met quickly becomes unfavorable.

 

So if you do a fair amount of e'way commuting, pls do yrself the favor and get the 300cc in order not to struggle with traffic. Else, consider carefully if the 200cc can meet your needs. I'm sure it has its own merits for certain circumstances.

Thanks for the sharing. Think i will head down to mah to check if i can handle the bike first before deciding on the purchase cos i dun tink i will ever be able to lift the bike up if it falls -.-" hope ur injuries getting better

This is my hypothesis on how the water accumulates and over spray into the leg room.

1) Most of the water is scooped up from the tyre and some from the front.(Light blue)

2) The water is accumulated in the wheel well and pushed out the side by wind pressure

3) Water is sprayed onto foot and shin(dark blue)

4) The red triangle is a tapered concave area which may act as a funnel to direct water to the knees and thigh area.

 

*Note: water spray from the tyre also reaches passenger foot rest area via the caved in area between rider and pillion foot rest. The concave is to facilitate rider to put both feet down by the side.

 

Conclusion, front mudguard may alleviate the problem but don't know by how much. Will feedback after installation.

 

*Sorry Andre, don't mind i borrow yr picture.

Hope not too painful after the incident........does that mean I must sign up for gym before buying bike? heheheheheheheh..........anyway I will buy mine after my trip next week. Will go see and understand more on the forums before taking the plunge ........and make sure all bolts and wheels fasten before signing on dotted line.......and try squeeze them for mudflaps....don't know if can......but will try......and meantime learn from you veteran riders.

There is no OEM mudflap for this bike. Only OEM accessory I saw was aluminium footboard on another AD3 which the salesperson told me is customer ownself buy one.

 

Will be good to inspect all bolts and nuts but even better to locktite yourself after collection.

 

This bike is really quite heavy I would suggest you goto MAH and try to maneuver the bike and put on main stand and off. If can't manage to move off the stand den I would suggest to proceed with caution.

      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
