According to the release, “A cool guy fascinating angular shapes is to us.” Now, discounting my chiselled features, the only cool guy with fascinating shapes in the vicinity is Daelim’s S1 in a workplace that has become with the steady coming and and to-ing and fro-ing of scooters, the comments about the S1 are quite

Most people think it sharp. and expensive. And that’s an reaction given Daelim’s of the S1 as a premium scooter, at a premium In effect, the looks of the scooter already done a lot of the hard If the scooter office is any judge of then the signs are good.

But looks alone may form the for a flirtation, when it’s to get serious then what’s is what counts.

Anyone with a long (or a shelf full of scooter will remember we were impressed with Daelim’s named, but very practical III. It was fast(ish), practical and built. It was, basically, a that punched above its and was built, as they might said, tolerably well.

The new S1 is different. A sketchy command of and a sense of delicacy prevent me talking about Korea’s with Japan, but the S1 isn’t to make it any better.

The Korean Daelim has Honda quality in its and why wouldn’t any company aim for the standard-setting for build quality? What’s the first two weeks of a wet Sydney prove the company’s not far from the Two weeks of wet commuting and the S1 scrubbed up as as new. No alloy blooming, no screws, no residual effects at

Polished up a treat, it did, as you can see in the which were taken the day the (sadly) left our tender

But the ability to keep a showroom for a couple of weeks though is hardly likely to make a household name, so we have to deeper, beneath the lustrous How about under the seat? A trunk light and powersocket the storage space. One of the clever of he S1 is the shift of the fuel filler cap to the

This makes filling the easy (and quick) as you need to worry about fuel into the underseat area. Not that you have to the tank all that often. a 9.5-litre capacity and an average figure (including in-town and of 3.9L/100km you should be right for between sips at the bowser.

fuel crisis?

Part of the for the good economy must be the system, replacing the carburetor of the outgoing model. Fuel is generally much more efficient and environmentally friendly a carburetor since the electronic module makes decisions how much fuel and when to it rather than a vacuum at the end of a long throttle cable.

But all the clean running and fuel in the world ain’t going to be friend if your scooter pull the skin off a custard. The sure could; what the S1? The S1 claims more torque the previous model, and that is out by the seat of the pants dyno.

Off the line, however, the S1 slightly flat as the centrifugal wound up and drive was delivered. the flat feeling wasn’t by cars flashing by as I waited for forward motion, so I suspect the was just that. Anyway, the rear brake on while as the lights changed rendered the mark academic and it’s to recommend the S1 as a day to day ride.

What makes it even is the scooter’s wet weather performance. riding in the rain isn’t the pleasant of experiences, it can certainly the wheat from the chaff as far as go. The S1 never put a foot wrong, and was encouraging in the wet, due in no small to the combined braking system.

The brake lever operates the brake as normal. The left-hand operates the rear brake and one on the front brake caliper, partial braking at the front at the time.

This is a version of a Honda has been using on of its motorcycles (and scooters) for years and it is very effective, shorter stopping distances more feel at the lever. An benefit is that is seems not to too much with dragging the brake for stability and low-speed At the risk of appearing a technophobe, it works.

So I forgot about it.

One thing I like, however, was the front It looked impressive with its design and large reflector, but it depth and penetration. Then I it on. I’m so used to automatic that I didn’t notice the

At that instant I had to revise my of the lights. They’re great high-beam.

I’m wracking my trying to think of stuff I like. There could be underseat storage, but that’s of pretty much everything. could be more Daelim but that’s beyond the scope of test.

There should be more riders, but that’s up to you. Oh, the manual. It’s easy to fun of some of the tortured English but there is an absolute wealth of on how to ride well and safely (as as the usual guff about

So I can’t even complain that.
