Sinnis Hero 125. Much more of everything & commuting daily I simply need better brakes. Nothing wrong with the Riders, but I need all the advantages of modern scooter for my 'daily'.. I don't bounce like I used to & I've had my money's worth.

Compared it to the Yamaha Cygnus & it's close enough..

Ill do a full report as I ride it in.

Now, my Mum has a bigger garage...

Regards

Kevin

Look forward to your feedback, I believe it was Ged who stated that the hero is a rebadged Yamaha model at a more sensible price

Saw a Sinnis terrain in Poole the other day and for the asking price including luggage looked a good bit of kit,sadly owner not around to get opinion

There is a big local pub Saturday bike meet near Rochford with all types of bikes and riders. One guy (older than me even) looked down his nose at anything non British and consequently would come by car all the time. A couple of years ago he bought a Terrain, uses it all year round and appears to have changed his opinion! :lol:

I've spoken to a couple of other owners of them as well, not heard a bad word. £2500, not much more than a full set of luggage at BMW prices.

That's interesting but likely to put it in the price bracket of Mash, Herald & all the other 'copy' bikes currently available.
125cc is still a sensible annual cost (though rising insurance premiums are starting to spoilt that)
I actually think we've never been so spoilt for alternative brands
