Daelim Delfino scooter review - 100cc 2 stroke in the U.S.

If you like riding on two wheels, and your green leanings are more along the lines of using the least amount of gasoline possible as opposed to having the cleanest emissions, then perhaps you should consider the new Daelim Delfino scooter. According to The Scooter Scoop, the scooter has pretty good acceleration, which is not too surprising considering the 100cc engine is a two-stroke design, which usually feel "peppier" than similarly sized four-strokes. The downside is that the emissions from the two-stroke engine is generally worse than their four-stroke cousins.

A little more on the scooter: Delfino means Dolphin in Italian, although the scooter is made in Korea. Don't worry too much about the quality, it is high. Daelim has been making vehicles for quite some time now, and has collaborated with Honda, which is generally considered the gold standard when it comes to reliability. Styling is generally a personal matter, although Steve from The Scooter Scoop liked the looks. Looks a little bubbly to me, but, your mileage may vary. Speaking of mileage, Steve got better than 80 miles to the gallon under his testing. That is certainly a high figure, so if you are mainly looking to save gas, this might be a good option to consider.
