Last year I had plans to get Chanya’s mother a new scooter, partly because everyone else got a bike and I didn’t want her to feel left out. The problem is, if you live on a budget, you need to stick to it or you’ll find yourself running short. Chanya had plans for getting the Salon up and running, so I had to put a hold on the scooter for mom.
Anyway, since the Salon is now running properly, it’s the Thai new year and Chanya’s mother has been a great help around the house so it’s time to give her a surprise. I chose the Yamaha Grand Fino Hybrid because the old Fino has served the family well over the last 7 years. Although Yamaha admits that the hybrid features are classed as a light hybrid, they are proving very popular over the Honda rival because they aren’t so technology dependent. Service costs of the Fino are much more acceptable in this market place.
