Buddy 10th anniversary 125

PostPosted: Fri Oct 07, 2016 3:10 pm    Post subject: Buddy eclipse Reply with quote

I just got an email from Genuine about something called a Buddy Eclipse. Anyone have any ideas what this is? Will it be Kick based, or Buddy based?

I saw that too. When I was scoot-shopping, my local dealer surmised that the Kick will replace the 125 in the next year or two. Maybe (just maybe, I'm spitballing here) it's a replacement/revamp of the 50?

Or they're teaming up with Mitsubishi. Rolling Eyes

Genuine will usually roll out a "special edition" once a year or so. That's what the Eclipse is. Will more than likely have the standard upgrades (sporty mirrors/grips, adjustable shock, upgraded from disk brake, maybe a lowered seat, etc.). From what I've heard it'll be matte black (but don't quote me on that-I haven't actually seen a picture yet!).

Sounds like the BlackJack II.

There is a model on the PGO website that leads me to expect a matte black kick with red wheels.

So if we assume that the picture is correct/accurate, it looks like and upgraded rear shock. Up from a standard 50 cc caliper with a somewhat upgraded disc. Maybe it will be both 50 and 125 versions, but it doesn't appear to be a 150cc or 170cc kind of upgrade. Visually, it's got a blackout kit. The basis for the model name?

Why do they keep putting the low profile seat on all the special editions? Do only short people buy the special editions?

That is exactly why I went with the regular Roughhouse 50. The Special Edition Sport had the low profile seat and it would have cost me another 100 to get the regular seat. Just didn't make sense.

not me, when I got my hooligan, I waited an extra couple weeks just to get the black one . But, I do think that matte red roughhouse color is pretty cool looking.

When I picked up a slightly used Blackjack for my wife, we couldn't wait to get rid of the seat and put on the seat from a regular Buddy, not to mention that god-awful noisy Prima pipe. Somewhere in greater Detroit there's a guy who's riding a 2009 baby blue Buddy 125 with a Blackjack seat and a stupid noisy exhaust. But he's young, so he thought it was cool.

Flat black paint jobs look like primer paint to me. Not a big fan.
