    Not really. An updated TMAX, a new Vespa Sprint S, some new Vespa Touring versions. A nice Honda 125 mini-maxi (not for here). The Piaggio Electric Bike is probably big news .

    I'll drip these through over the next few days. You can see further updates on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Scootersales

    Re: EICMA Motorcycles for 2015

    I'm a bit confused by the Honda Forza 125.  It's bigger and heavier than the PCX, but only 125cc where the PCX has gone up to 150, but then it's got a 4-valve head compared to the PCX's 2 valves, so it has the same horsepower as the 150.

    Why not reuse the 150 instead of making a new 125?  Why not use the new 125 in the PCX instead of making a bigger motor? Confused

    First: Daelim S1 125
    Then: Honda PCX 150
    Now: Honda CTX 700

    Some countries allow younger riders to ride up to 125cc. If they only make 1 size it cuts down on a lot of costs.

    4 years and 20,000 K's later, I'm still scootering, and you guys are stuck with me!

    Yep in Europe/UK the 125 with up to i think a maximum 15bhp is the learner machine (easier licence bigger machines require more training upgraded licence to ride) & big sales potential . Think 150 is popular in USA as thats the minimum size allowed on freeways . Australia being a miniscule scooter market we take what we can Big Smile

    New Kymco Scooters released at Eicma. 350 Downtown looks the goods. And noted the new 271 cc engine - 298 cc engine being phased out?

    Maybe its just me, but what is the difference between the Downtown and the Agility?? They look very similar in terms of size, almost identical weights?   Is it just a styling thing??   To me the Agility would appeal to a slightly younger crowd being a little edgy with addition of the blue panels.

    Both look like fantastic scooters, and I for one would be very interested in the Downtown, especially with 30hp on tap.  Double the HP of the 125cc version and only 11kgs more wet weight.   Looks very much like a viable option instead of the Beverley providing the price hits the spot.

    Any idea on what costs will be on Aus shores?? 

    Started out with a Zip 50. Now moving on to a HD 200. Wonder what's next....?? Not wondering any more.... TMAX!!!!!!

    Re: EICMA Motorcycles for 2015

    Pictures from Eicma would suggest the Agilty is the sports focused - city focused commuter. Downtown for the longer distance work, yet they still class it having a sporty appeal. Downtown has a few nicer parts over the Agility Maxi. Better weather protection for longer distances and higher speeds also.

    Will be interesting to see how smooth they have both engines running. The 299 cc engine was a little vibey down low. Press releases would suggest they have solved this. I would be thinking it will get here at around 8 ride away, or that's where I think it needs to be.
