Looks like the Honda Zoomer but as long as it saves money and space it is good enough. That 9 gallons under seat sound nice too.

Do you think it would be fine for a 6'1" - 250 lbs. person. I have a Honda Elite 80 now, but it seems small and really looking for a bigger, not too expensive, scooter...

I don't think it would be a good idea to move to fewer cc. I recently had a test ride on a Honda PS 150i (i don't know if it has arrived yet in the US). It's quite comfortable with a lot of space under the seat and only the fact that it is Fuel Injection makes it really cheap to ride every day. I filled up the tank and did about 220 klm until Empty...

Does the C3 only seat one? And if so, is there an extended seat that you could fit on it?

Yamaha hasn't mention anything about a bigger seat. The C3 is gonna come out on November. Maybe later will release some accessories.
A 49cc powered scooter (and 4-stroke) won't have the strength to move 2 persons with more than 35-40 km/h though...(a 2-stroke will)

I'm curious if anyone has ridden or sat on a yamaha C3 yet. I'm 5 foot 10 and wonder if it is big enough for me. I fit comfortably on a Vento Phantom 150. Also wondering what the top speed is for the C3.

Someday they will make a scooter for a guy my size. There are downsides to being 6'5" and 245 pounds.

The C3 has been out for a while now. I'm most interested in reliability and build quality. I've bought and run Hondas all my life with ZERO maintanance issues. someone told me Yamahas aren't built as good and Yamaha does not support it's products as well as Honda and Suzuki (including in-warranty). Anyone have any positive or negative feedback?

i bought a C3 a few days ago and I love it. It has a little slower pickup than the two-stroke I used to ride, but the top speed is definitely higher, and the gas mileage is a lot better. I can get it going over 50 now, but its not fully broken in yet.

It will take 2 people at about 30-35 mph, about 25 uphill.

The gas mileage is unbelievable, my first tank went 124 miles.

Out the door mine was 2,300. I bought the 4 year warranty from the shop that I got it at for 400 bucks, that covers EVERYTHING. I have heard the Yamaha extended warranty is terrible, because if you mod it at all, or break it in wrong, they wont cover you.

I have a friend who is 6'2" 185 and he rocked it just fine.

I would reccomend this scooter to anyone who is happy with the speed of a 50cc.
