    Hello

    I have a question about buying a 2012 TE511. I going to have a look at it later today or tomorrow. I had a quick look online for parts availability and some info. Not much out there. I had a 2008 TXC 510 but I got rid of it and instantly regretted it. Great bike. I came across this 2012 TE 511 with 3000 Km. But what I have read is maybe a should stay away from it. I figured some of you guys would know better than just random people on different sites. Anyway any info would be great thanks.
    Cheers

    Fairly short production timespan…two or three years. TE510 was produced for nearly 20 years. 511 was more recent so maybe an advantage. My dealer didn’t think much of them.

    510 motors (501 cc) were made in Italy. 511 motors (which are actually only 477 cc) were made by Kymco in Taiwan.
