    1. The allegedly “professional” Zim vehicle dealerships will tell you everything about a vehicle, even offer you a test drive, but unless you go there in person pricing nevers comes out.

  1. Me l have that type of scooter Agilitee from sa that one is best for local routes guyz if you wanna buy from me contact me 0780646992 l have to add up also the duty fee on my price

  2. It is said to consume 1.6kWh per 100km, wh its range is 70 or 80km after one charge. Is the 1.6kWh calculated after 2 charges? How reliable is the figure considering battery charge and discharge characteristics? At least I can go to Norton and return to Harare on one charge when the battery is still new. With no bicycle lanes it will be quite a challenge being a road hog at 45 km/h with cars, buses and lorries breezing past you! Can someone check if it needs a driver’s licence considering its maximum speed. If no license required, will kids be allowed to motorcycle to school?

  3. Please not that I am in pain with my $8500 which I bought as airtime to my Netone line 0712331336 using my EcoCash Number 0775949917. The airtime has never reached my account since yesterday. See below
