Automatic chain oiler, looks very nice.

Automatic chain oiler, why? It isn't a feature that maxi scooters like, or in a lot of instances are used to if they haven't had any motorcycle experience. Here in the UK with winter approaching cleaning lubing and adjusting chains isn't a feature that many scooter riders relish.

Chain oilers are also more suited for motorcycle where there'll be at least some point where you can attach them. Unlike maxi scooters with lots of bodywork, and usually with any chain drive bike or scooter, an effective aftermarket chain guard to keep the lube from flying off everywhere is essential.

A fully enclosed chain in an oil bath like earlier versions of the Yamaha TMax were popular with owners, previous chain drive sports style maxi scooters like the Gilera GP800 and Aprilia SRV 850 were discontinued due to poor sales.

Even the Honda Integra 700 and 750 hybrid scooter put a lot of prospective buyers off because of chain drive and lack of a rear hugger. Honda's X-ADV adventure scooter has attracted criticism for having chain drive and throwing mud and dirt all over the rear end and passenger.
