Hi my husband and i both have a Sauron GT 125cc. My scooter is blue and his is yellow. Basically i got the blue one because last year when we first got them and i was learning to ride i hit the fence with it so it became mine. I love it. I never dreamed when i let him talk me into getting one that i'd enjoy it so much. Luckily we bought our scooters before Vento switched manufactures so we haven't had any problems with them. My top speed is around 60mph

Here is a pic of mine

xojoanox, Welcome to Scooter Diva! Your scooters are cool looking. I've never heard of Sauron scooters before, but they're hot looking! @--@

Very nice scooter. I like the blue seat? Did you add the performance pipe?

Vento made some nice socotters when they first started out. I am not sure what happened with the manufacterer switch that you mention but seems to have gone down hill. I read somewhere that Vento was going out of business?

The Vento Sauron is a clone of the Honda X8RS.
The performance pipe is a stock Silverstone racing pipe and came with the bikes. We love them but as with most Chinese scoots you have to make sure you have good dealer support and having a dealer prep the scoot is a must. I hear of so many ppl who have had a scoot delivered to their home in a crate. Seems those are the folks that have most of the problems. Our scoots are a year old and we havent had one problem yet :D
As for manufacturing: Vento scooters were made by Qianjaiang in China until the end of 2004.They then switched to Jialing of China. Most Jialing unit are poorly built. (pretty sure I got this right)

Below is some info about Vento taken from a forum I belong to "MyVento.net"
Vento, which is Italian for "wind," was founded in Mexico in 1996. Parts come from Italy, China, Japan and Taiwan, with some of its suppliers also selling to Harley-Davidson.

Vento manufacturers scooters, motorcycles, and ATV’s (All Terrain Vehicles)

In 1998 an assembly and quality control plant in Laredo, Texas was opened. This plant was built with the purpose of elevating the quality of their products in order to compete in the marketplace with manufacturers here and abroad. All of the components are brought to Laredo where they are assembled and quality control work is performed.

Vento's corporate office located in San Diego, California is where various operations varying from product design and development to customer support take place. Vento’s sales organization is structured in the United States through a network of 175+ Vento Dealers in more than 30 states; there are more than 300 Vento outlets worldwide. FY 2003 sales in the United States totaled 17,840 units. A sum of 77,600 Vento motorcycles were sold that same year in Chile, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico and Venezuela, Russia and Puerto Rico combined. (Includes Highway Motorcycles, Scooters, Utility and ATVs). Vento sells more small-displacement two-wheel vehicles in Mexico than Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and Kawasaki combined.

Vento products are approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), and certified by both the EPA and the California Air Resources Board, meeting the strictest emission regulations.
