2021 Rattler 200i Coming?

Post by jrsjr »

Because Covid-19 I have time to do things like peruse government databases and I happened to come across something that may interest you Rattler folks. Here is the list of Models covered by one entry in the EPA database for 2021 Genuine scooters:

Blur 200i, Formula T 200i, Rattler 200i, Urbano 200i

Whhatever it is, it uses exactly the same engine as the Blur 200i.

Am I just behind the times again? Did you all already know all about this or is it vaporware (like the Venture 150 that showed up in the EPA datase a few years ago) or what?

I'm interested to hear. Thanks!

I’m still kinda new here but.. would definitely consider getting one of these (if true) to have alongside my Rattler 110!

It is an interesting idea, isn't it? That category (ADV scooters) is something Honda is exploring right now, too.

P.S. Belated Welcome to Modern Buddy, NorCalRattler! I'm sorry that I spend most of my Modern Buddy time and energy being the unwelcoming committee for spammers instead of the welcoming committee for legit new members. Anyway, we're glad you're here!

Thanks for the formal welcome. Glad to be hear, although my old buck ten platform doesn’t seem to have much discussion - still like reading about what everyone else is up to.

This is my first scooter, I come from a long list of motorcycles (Buell, Harley, Suzuki) but found this 2 stroke 110 for a hell of a deal and jumped on it, perfect for quick beer runs!

I am familiar with the Blur 220i, but not the 200i.
-Which one was in the 2021 database?

I did find a small amount of info related to the Blur 200i:

"The G-Max design was new from PGO for 2006. Overseas the G-Max is sold in 50, 125, 150, 200 and 220cc varieties."

Wouldn't the return of the Blur also be a big deal? I have heard nothing about that either.

If I may ask, which dB are you looking into, jrsjr? I look at th2 CARB list regularl, but there has been little activity since March, unsurprisingly.

I was really excited when I saw this post earlier. Now seeing that these 200i scooters are only going to be 169cc has me less excited. It would be nice to see Genuine sell some scooters with ~15 horsepower(these 169cc will be about 11.4hp.) But it's still nice to see Genuine adding more scooters to their lineup.

I would like to see some pictures of the Formula T and the Urbano.



Wild prediction- Genuine will change the name of the Buddy 170i to Buddy 200i.

I really don't understand the strategy behind misleading consumers about engine sizes. Buddy 50-125-150-170i, I get. But 200i for a 169cc? Why stop at 200 and not name it the 250 or 300? Or if you want 200 in the name, put in a 200cc engine. Either customers will know they're getting a smaller engine than is on the badge before they buy, or they'll discover it after they buy. The brand is diminished either way. And fooling the non-customer doesn't make any money, does it?

Not to make excuses for this dishonest behavior, but this is such common practice (See Kymco) that I think Genuine had to do it to keep up with the Joneses. I mean, if they called it a 169 and Jane/Joe First-Time Scooter Buyer goes to their local Kymco dealer and sees a "200i" for sale for less money, what are they going to think? What I'm saying is, I don't think this is a game where strict honesty about engine displacement is going to carry the day when most consumers probably couldn't tell you what "displacement" means...

Just sayin'. Don't get mad.

Hey Syd, you're right, the CARB databases have been static. I think they closed up shop for the duration. The database I'm quoting is from the Federal EPA Annual Certification Data for Vehicles, Engines, and Equipment databases. I made the name clickable so you can go straight to it.

P.S. The EPA database had also been static for a long while. I had stopped checking until yesterday when I just happened to check in and noticed they had posted an "April" update.

Ironically, there are some Chinese street bikes displacing over 300cc, that are advertised as a 250. It makes them appear produce more hp per cc. Vitacci GTO 250 is one example.

So, these proposed models have little or nothing to do with the existing Rattler or Blur built by PGO. These appear to be 4 trims or finishes of a proposed 200 (169) scooter to be built by a Chinese manufacturer for Genuine. More like the Venture 50 that Genuine has been importing.

Bear in mind, we are talking about a 2021 model and none of this may ever actually appear in a USA dealership. Witness the "Venture 150" which appeared in the EPA database a few years ago and which never appeared in the USA. Right now these are just line-items in a federal database. For all I know, this could just be part of Genuine's effort to suss out the community response to a prospective scooter. :shock:

The bike reviews article said the G-max 200i will cruise at 110 km/hr (65mph), but they did not say if that was indicated or measured by GPS.
- I would be interested in a 200i if it will cruise at 65mph GPS. That would work on many of our 2 lane highways.

I love the ergos on my Roughhouse 50, and if it came out with the 200i version, itd be hard to say no to.

The Cabo 200i, is a very close comparison. If I ever needed a larger scooter, that one is on the top of my list.

I agree. I had an online chat with someone from Genuine in the past a couple of years ago and said that a Roughhouse 125cc would be a great bike and they agreed with me 😀 then told me it would never happen.😢 I've sworn up and down that I'd buy one if they ever brought one out.
