Probably not a bad bike, but parts availability could be a problem. Find out where the guy bought the bike and see if you have a reputable dealer in the area.

"Turbo" may be the most misused word in the English language. The bike doesn't have a "turbo," any more than the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Shaving System has one.

I'm not familiar with NY motor vehicle laws, but I SERIOUSLY DOUBT you can ride a 150cc bike without a motorcycle license, despite what the ad says.

No turbo on that Chinese scoote. Common clone GY6 motor. Only scooter currently on the market with a turbo is one made by Peugeot.

aren't those the guys making the 50cc motorcycles?
I've wondered about the quality level of those.
