Fuel consumption is actually not as bad as one would imagine. Sensible riding will normally return approximately 6L/100kms or about 40MPG which is still around twice as good as the average car in normal city driving. A modern four stroke scooter will do better, but certainly won’t do it as quickly. Runner 180 owners are the Ferrari drivers of the scooter world. Hate us if you like but you certainly won’t catch us….run little rabbit.

Testing was carried out on 2003 model with 24,000 kms on the clock.

Hey Ron, keep your eyes peeled, we have a VXR inbound. There will be a review up (fingers crossed) in the next 2 or 3 weeks. People keep borrowing it from the company that supplies our test bikes... that could be an advance idea of how good it is. Either way a full report will be up... hopefully sooner rather than later.

I had a gilera runner 180 for two years, bought new, did 10000 miles never failed once, and boy does it go. Clocked 150kph on a very short straight piece of road.Am thinking of getting the vxr200 but dont know how it fares performance wise.
