    x10 .350 or 500

    hi All↲

    I was just reading about both of these scooters and both sound great.↲

    But the 350 sounds so good i cant see why anyone would get the 500 .

    I had a 300 (Downtown) and a 350 (Beverly) and found them both perfectly adequate even outside of the city. The only reason I can see for going 500 is if you're going to travel two-up, otherwise I'd go lighter and cheaper; 350 will do just fine.

    Hi Ferrix, Any major issues with either of those scoots? Any real fave?

    I just made a abid on a flat in Bathurst NSW and the ride from Sydney on the Scarab 200 is iffy....somethingbigger would be good cos I'm sick and tired of renting a acar when I want to go bush!

    Neither gave me any trouble but I have to say, Beverly was a better scooter... as it should be, since it was more expensive! It was more powerful yet more compact, the engine was smoother and the ride better. My Downtown was one of the original models and that engine was a bit agricultural, especially compared to buttery-smooth Bev. I understand the revised engine in later model was better in this regard, but I never rode it so I can't comment.

    Downtown had more storage room under the seat, that (and the price) was its only advantage.

    Hi Ferr,

     

    That's helpful.

    I was the successful bidder on the property so it's off to the 2nd hand pages for me to get me either a bigger scoot or perhaps an old Volvo wagon, shoulld I decide to do major renos and need to take up stuff from Sydney.
