  • Re: Xmax 300

    I just read on Youtube that the Forza front compartment is locked when the steering wheel is locked. If true then that is fantastic. One of the pains of scooter ownership is the "gear up" time and having to use the key in glovebox, ignition, and top box contributes to that. That's why I like the idea of the Forza smart top box ...
  • Re: Xmax 300

    Yes the Honda build quality is mainly about the fit and finish on the plastic panels, and the grab bar which I was very surprised to find was metal. But even in areas where the Yamaha seems perfectly unobjectionable, like the quality of the switches and the bar grips, the Honda seems to be just that notch above. The overall impression is of a more ...
  • Re: Xmax 300

    I test rode the new Forza 300 today and then immediately went back to the Xmax 300 (sat on but not ridden) for comparison: -- fit and finish excellent, a clear step above the Xmax 300 -- METAL grab bar! (Xmax is plastic) -- front storage compartment (there is only one, on the left hand side) does NOT lock, but it is quite deep and could easily ...
  • Re: Xmax 300

    Adjustable windshield LED turn signals Keyless top box would be the big one but I don't think it's available in Australia Could be differences in fit and feel too. Obviously the Forza is at a disadvantage costing $1000 more, but I wouldn't rule it out before trying it out. If I were going with the X-Max it would be with the ...
  • Re: Xmax 300

    I went back to sit on the Xmax again. It's more about appreciating it for what it is rather than grouching about what it isn't. But this is the first scoot (actually first vehicle) that I'll (probably) be buying new, and I'm not keen on spending serious money on something that doesn't tick all the boxes for me. Of course, the ...
  • Re: Xmax 300

    Had a chance to sit on an Xmax 300 today. Coming from a Majesty 250, the Xmax is slimmer in every way except where it counts: the seat is taller and wider (or possibly simply wider). It's workable, but not ideal. I was also fairly unimpressed with the build quality, where e.g. the glovebox panels seem fairly loose. Fairing, screen coverage, ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Thanks for the reply jshowyin. The other driver has lodged a claim and I am in communication with their insurance agency. I have claimed for both the damage to my scooter and replacement cost for my gear. I obtained a repair quote from Yamaha World which came out at twice the market value of the scooter, but they want to send an assessor out ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Well, it happened again. This time I got a ride in the ambulance.  Riding 60km/h down the middle eastbound lane of a six lane road (three lanes each way). Two cars sitting in the divider waiting to do a u-turn. The first does so in front of me, safely. The second evidently doesn't see me coming and decides to follow. I slam on the brakes ...
  • Nolan N20 and N21 Visor Helmets

    See this imgur album for pics: https://imgur.com/a/uBHxr   The Nolan N20 was my first scooter helmet, predating even my first scooter. It was comfortable and stylish and it has served me well these past four or so years. Still, it had a few limitations. Even with the lower visor that Nolan offers as an accessory, rain was still ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Thanks Pyrah. I think it's fair to say I came out ahead from the crash. I'm very pleased with the Majesty so far, although it's a 2001 model it has only done 5700kms. The increased turning circle takes a bit of getting used to, and I haven't been game to lane filter on it yet, but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon ...
