    Well I went to the Whizzer site today and was saddened to see the NE-5 is officially gone. It has been replaced by the NE-R. So I must say it is now official and just like going to a funeral my going to the site and not seeing the NE-5 there was for me closure. I sure hope they made the correct decision.

    We'll see how well the new NE-R sells. I still think they should not have discontinued the NE5, because that was their bread-and-butter machine. I don't know why they felt that the two models couldn't coexist in their product line. Not a very smart marketing move in my opinion. :dunce:

    Hi Everyone,

    I have already received reports on a few of the NE-r versions. So far not one happy camper. I sure was hoping things would be different. I wish the best for them. There are a few NE5 models around, still isn't too late to grab one before they are simply a foot note in the history books.

    Have fun,

    One new one left...

    I still have a NEW 2008 NE5 for sale! The first $1850 gets it. I have the orig shipping crate to put it back into if needed. I uncrated it, assembled it, and adjusted carb, belts, etc. to make sure everything was ok. Total of 16 miles on it to break it in and seat the clutch shoes. Ready to go. Would look good under someones x-mas tree. 219-405-6845. Located in NW Indiana, 46310.

    Quenton has forgotten more about Whizzers than you and I will ever know. If he says he has had unfavorable reports about problems with the NER, I believe him. He has nothing to gain by spreading false information. I'm sure a few owners are happy but I have not heard them speak yet. I really hope Whizzer takes the time to get it right. It would be a shame to drag the Whizzer name down the tubes because of design and mfg. mistakes.
