The moto roma virage is no longer in production, ended in 2001/02, we bought one for the wife a while ago as it has a low seat height which was a must for Mrs K as she is only 5ft tall. The bike is quite light and pretty nippy (with more umph than her current bike Yamaha sr 125)

There is a problem which seems to be a common fault and that is that the rectifier / regulator tends to give up, as I discovered on riding the bike home from Kent when we bought her. This meant the lights wouldn't last long as the battery wouldn't charge, after a 12 week wait and at a cost of £97 we managed to get the part that we needed but by this time we had bought the Yamaha so that Mrs K could still get some riding experience (and Mr k was allowed out on his bike LOL) We also had a few problems with the gears (selecting 2nd from 1st)

Overall though when the bike was going it went well, but I fear they are pretty expensive machines to keep on the road. My advice is spend a little extra and get a Yamaha Sr125 (not quite as powrful) but eternily reliable.
