ARGO USA's New Scooter!

Here they are, the new Argo 150cc automatic scooters (model AR150-18). Yes, they look like all the other Vino 125 clones, but the scooter is more than skin deep.

Brought to you by the same fine folks from BajajUSA.

From Al Kolvites, President Argo USA, on what makes the Argo different...

The body style may look similar to some non-compliant scooters, but you have never seen a scooter that has received so much attention to reliability, performance and safety.

Here is what we have done to make this, and every ARGO scooter manufactured, superior to the competition:

No More Broken Mounting Tabs: Specially compounded high strength polymers for all body panels. If you hit these body panels with a hammer, you can dent it, but you will not crack it.

Front and Rear Disk Brakes: Hydraulic disk brakes front AND rear for maximum safety. Disks are high quality, stress relieved steel, to prevent distortion and warping.

Authentic Yamaha Engine: Reliable 150cc Yamaha engine with the optional 98 watt 8 pole generator and a 10,000 mile drive belt. Due to its proven track record for durability and reliability, this engine design is widely copied, usually made with inferior components. We use an authentic Yamaha engine.

Guaranteed EPA, CARB & DOT:
Completely compliant with all EPA & CARB emission standards and DOT safety requirements. No shortcuts, no fooling.

21 Point Inspection:
Each and every Argo scooter goes through a comprehensive 21 point safety inspection and performance evaluation before leaving the factory. Each scooter is delivered with a tag attached listing these 21 points and is certified by our Quality Control Supervisor.
