At first I thought "like with a lot of the chinese things, Same scoot in a different jacket."
Though it has some nice upgrades, that cost a manufacturer almost nothing (like LED lights). The halogen lights are not particularly necessary, however can be a nice addition. Only con with those is they are more expensive (and difficult) to replace than regular bulbs.
Brake light is a bit too much if you ask me. The rest, alloy 12in wheels, trunk, glove bucket, pretty much looks like a regular chino scoot!
It's actually not a low entry scooter, it's more like a mid class 50cc scooters from china.
2 things the Tao Taos miss, is make those brake lights work on the rear storage box, and get a tachometer and temperature sensor installed. Those 2 things could make it a very nice scoot!

Well yes I do agree with you it is bit better the a low entry level scooter. But I am so used to people with vespa asking if tao tao's are good scooters. And I say yes but as long as you know its a low entry level scooter. Because in my opinion it is a low entry level scooter when you compare them to any scooter Italian made. The vip Tao Tao has a tach. But I agree that all need a tach as a extra feature. I think we will be seeing alot of the lighting upgrades on the new scooters.
