Anyone have a Hooligan 170i they have been riding for a while and could give me a review?

Looking to buy one. Sat on it in a dealer last year and it felt more comfortable than the buddy seating and positioning.

I owned one from August 2016 to the summer of 2017. It was a very comfortable and reliable ride, with ample low-end power with decent top end speed, good ergonomics, and a style that I thought was appropriately "tough" looking versus the Buddy series. The bigger tires and longer wheelbase absorbed a bit more of the road's irregularities and it had decent built-in storage. I wanted to keep it but it had originally been bought as a used, slightly damaged bike and I resold it for about $800 profit after fixing it up (and putting about 1,200 miles on it). Additionally, my wife loved it also and used to regularly put miles on it during commutes. The only downside to it was that they tend to be a bit expensive brand new, but used ones in good shape can be found in the high 1000's/low 2000's range if you are patient.

If I found one in the $1500 range and had the cash on hand to buy it, I would definitely consider it.

Thanks for that review. It would ease my anxiety to buy a new one but yes, the price differential is a bit much.

The best scooter I've ever owned and I had 2 of them, one in Tucson, AZ and one here in the Seattle area. If you haven't already done it, go for it!
