This. I'd never go for a passola, but a Honda Cub would be a much wiser decision. (Motorcycle rider for 40 yrs)I bought a used Honda Cub in Nagua back in 2012 for 32,000 pesos.
Haven't priced them in a while but you should be able to find something
that runs well for $1,000 USD.
The Chinese ones are known to have quite a few problems. Maybe with very light use you'll be ok. Definitely buy new if you buy Chinese. At least you'll have some kind of warranty. The Chinese ones are all pretty much the same - just have different cosmetics.how reliable they are? Any specific model you can recommend?
