Pros:Fit and finish, Power and economy, Wide comfortable seat

Cons:Had to assemble it myself, Not many dealers around, Owner's manual is hilarious

The Bottom Line: It's about time someone sold scooters for a reasonable price. The quality of my Tank scooter is excellent and it has the feel of an expensive scooter.


Impressive quality for such an inexpensive motor scooter. I once owned a Honda scooter and the plastic rattled, it was hard to work on, and it had shim valves that could only be adjusted in the shop, so maintenance costs were prohibitive. This Tank scooter does not have a single rattle, is super quiet, accelerates nicely from a stop, and cost less than 1/4 what the Honda cost. When I sold the Honda, I lost more money in depreciation that I paid for this Tank scooter.
Since there isn't much of a dealership network on Chinese scooters, I found a local shop that can work on these before I bought it. As it turned out, I was able to assemble the scooter myself with little effort and have had no problems with it. Most of it was already assembled---all I had to do was mount the fairing and trunk, install the mirrors and battery, and discard the shipping crate. I had to prime the carburetor the first time to get it started, and the idle speed needed to be increased slightly, but there was nothing that required a mechanic.
I did some research before I made this purchase and it really paid off. Some scooters are pretty heavy, but this one weighs in at about 235 lbs. Tank's 150 Touring Executive is lighter than some of their other 150 Touring models and that really helps. I sat on one of their smaller 150's, the Urban Sporty, and the seat was not big enough for me. If you're in the market for a scooter, make sure you find one that fits you and isn't too heavy, or get a 250.
So far I haven't needed any parts. With a scooter this size it's a good idea to have a battery tender on hand if you don't ride for a week or more. I got one at Harbor Freight for $10. It's good to know the battery will be fully charged no matter how long it sits between rides.
Reading the owner's manual is good for a few laughs--- something is definitely lost in the translation.
