2009 Genuine Rattler 110 Review


The Genuine Rattler 110 offers a different option for scooter buyers with its 110cc air-cooled 2-stroke engine.
The cramped riding position of the genuine scooter doesn't leave much room between the knees and handlebar for taller riders (top). In tight turns the bar would hit the knees, unless a rider came up with different options (bottom).
The front wave rotor does all the heavy lifting in a lackluster braking package; At 32 inches, the Rattler seat height is actually on the high side for a scooter; Getting the Rattler key into the rear gas cap is tricky; The digital display is small but shows useful info.
The Rattler works fine as a short-distance commuter or around-town errand runner... Though we don't advise riding to the tavern.Some of us own multiple bikes, and LIKE to power down for quick commutes or easy wrenching hobbies. Nice power for a 2T if I may add. If your tall, DON'T BUY A RATTLER. Plain and simple. That part was great to add in the review. I have friends that have HDs that 'chuckle' at my Rattler, but they'd rather see me on that than a Vespa. So would I. Attacking or giving an opinion on the ride is fine. Keep your dim-witted comments to yourself.
