Default The Moskitos are here :D

The Front three quarters


The rear three quarters


The side profile


Front disc


The speedo console



The scoot you see above is a MZ Moskito 125... No, MZ isnt coming to India officially. A guy, who is into importing SBKs of all kinds (including the Ducati 1098S which is now in Delhi..) is getting these into India for sale. Yes, the pricing is high, but the design looks quite kewl

He is selling these for Rs70,000 in Mumbai...
b/w, MZ is a German company

the mz looks more like the honda dio. pardon my comparrison. 70,000 is steep for a bike this size. is this price with registration and duty or everything else is at an extra cost.

Those are the details I was looking for.
Seems way too expensive for a vehicle of that capacity. Any idea if these are in high demand ? Or is it that the person imported these on a trial basis?

70K is surely expensive for that capacity engine, If its not officially coming to India, what about the spares and services of these bikes.

Just what i wanted to know too. Nice to see disc brakes on a scooter btw.

P.S. Do they sound like mosquitoes?

I've seen one here. Looks good, can't say much about quality compared to Dio. And isn't the rear tyre bigger in size compared to any other scooter?

bunny is this scooter going to be reguler bulk imports or just a one off piece as per order? if your friend plans to mass import the scooters why not set up a after sales service workshop for it.

Would these scooters have a RTO approval?
