I thought I would write a review about my direct bikes experience:
I have been looking around on the net for a while for a 50cc scooter to take me to work and found direct bikes. Direct Bikes operate from website www.scooter.co.uk. I wanted a scooter to take me to work in central London. It had to be reliable with parts availability if needed. I ordered a Direct Bikes 50cc sports scooter in grey, the site is quite straight forward.
The bike arrived 2 days latter, the direct bikes courier range me before to book in the deliver. I did not have to stay in all day. He arrived on time and delivery was good.
The bike arrived very well packaged, I checked over the bike. In instructions were adequate. I just has to put on wing mirrors and attach battery, took around 10 minutes to do.
Unfortunately I did not have any petrol, so went off the petrol station to get some, filled up. Fingers crossed, I hit the start button, started first time!
Sent registration pack supplied to DVLA and got it back 5 days later, bike registered - now I am ready to ride...
I have ridden quite a few bikes in my time, the bike handles very similar to more expensive scooters like vespa. The brakes were responsive, acceleration swift and lasted a very long time on one tank of fuel.
Unfortunately some idiot smashed my brake light last week. Parts are available direct and got the replacement brake light delivered next day.
Would I recommend direct bikes? My experience was very positive; Iíve had the scooter now for 11 months. I am quite a fussy customer and donít usually do reviews, I have had no issues at all and would recommend.
