    Thought I would give an update on my Scorpio 10 years on. The little bike has been super reliable, never failing to start. It is just coming up to 50,000km now and suffered its first mechanical issue, a snapped throttle cable. A new one was quickly obtained for $55 and the bike is happily chugging along again.

    The paint and plastics still look like new, but the chrome has deteriorated considerably. The bike has consumed 4 rear tyres, one front tyre, 4 spark plugs, one fuel filter, one battery, and one set of front brake pads. I have been very good with oil and filter changes, so this has likely helped with its reliability. It still has its original chain and there is adjustment left.

    Performance seems the same, but I can't really remember what it was like new.

    I have now bought a Yamaha MT-07, but will keep the little Scorpio for commuting in heavy traffic until the MT is fully run in.
