This is my cousin's Yamaha Mio. My daughter loves to ride this scooter/moped/underbone motorcycle. She, cousin's younger brother and my cousin's older brother's son would ride this scooter around our neighborhood especially if my cousin wants his younger brother to run some errands for him and his older brother.
Yamaha Mio now has a new design but the specifications are still the same. The newer design has a more agressive look since this has become very popular among young professionals.
Everywhere here in the Philippines, you will see a lot of young male professionals riding a scooter, maybe because it is economical and saves a lot of time. You can just swirve your way through any traffic. Not to mention that scooters are available through easy installment plans which the yuppies can pretty much afford.
Yamaha Mio is currently only available in southeast asia.
To give you an idea, I got here the specifications of this scooter from the yamaha site:

Update On Mar 12, 2010: I apologize for the gibberish specs. The actual result of my review didn't really do justice as compared to the preview. Anyway here is the link where you can find the specs of this cutesy bike:
