I did a review on the 2012 SSR Lazer 5 moped a while back. I bought a new one a few months back, and have ridden it all over the place. No problems at all, plenty of power, starts at the touch of a button, or just turn on the key and barely give it a slight push while it's in 1st gear. It purrs like a kitten, and will climb any hill in low gear. I highly recommend these bikes. I bought mine from Franklin, Ky., JC Scooters, and they have a good service dept. They changed the oil while i was there to pick up the bike and checked everything to make sure all was right with the bike. They also have parts available should you need anything for them. The lights are as bright as any motorcycle that i have ever owned, the brakes are fantastic. For a China bike, you would not believe the build quality of these bikes. I know everyone likes to bash these little bikes, but to be honest, these are very good quality machines. Make sure it's the SSR Lazer 5 model, not one that looks like it, such as the "Baron", as there is a huge difference in quality, with the SSR being the better.
