Ease of use is a bit below average too, there’s no glove box up-front and the under seat storage area won’t take a large full face helmet. On top of that there’s no remote seat release which is surprising given they’ve added a remote start. I think the designers have watched too many James Bond movies and simply not ridden their own product enough to know that a remote seat release is probably the most useful feature on a scooter after an engine. So picture this…I can start my bike from thirty feet away…great, then I have to take out my keys to open the damn seat to get my helmet…hang on my helmet doesn’t fit under the seat…where is my helmet? Ah, it’s been stolen as I had to leave it on the bike. It’s all about priorities; get the simple things right before adding Turbo Boost.

Summing up the VMoto Monaco; VMoto certainly got the styling right with the Monaco and I’m sure that combined with its cool features they will sell many a bike. For male customers it will be very hard to pass up as it’s clearly targeted at us. Sadly the fact that it’s slow and has an awkward riding position makes it hard for me to recommend it whole heartedly. I’ve ridden other bikes in the VMoto range and am a huge fan of the Milan JX50, so I know they can make a great scooter. Hopefully they can make a few changes to the Monaco and match its performance to its style.
