    [quote user=&quot;SharonVespaGirl&quot;]That was a week or so ago. Now it&#39;s passed 52000[/quote] Three hearty cheers, Sharon.&nbsp; Reaching this milestone on any scooter is a reasonable feat, but I think moreso on 10&quot; wheels.&nbsp; Even now with Silver Pixie&#39;s back wheel cured of wobbles I can&#39;t see myself reaching this distance ...

  • Re: Burger vs Scarabeo

    [quote user=&quot;danceswithdingoes&quot;]its not a beginner&#39;s scoot imo, top heavy and tall, easy to tip at low speed[/quote] I think this may be more of an issue with the 200 with the fuel tank up under the seat (quite high). This is the trade off for a flat foot well, whereas the 500 has the fuel tank right down in the floor area.&nbsp; I ...

  • Re: 5 Speed PX 200

    If the 5th gear is something like an overdrive I think it would make the PX better at hill climbing.&nbsp; I find 50kph to 1105kph a rather broad range for 4th gear.&nbsp; One can detect a difference as you reach 75kph.&nbsp; Is that when the second jet kicks in?&nbsp; I think it would be kinder on both the engine and gear box if this is where the ...

  • Re: Dilemma

    As with choosing any &quot;product&quot; in the end it comes down to personal preference. &quot;What feels right&quot;&nbsp; If you find you feel more &quot;at home&quot; on the Majesty then that&#39;s the scooter for you.&nbsp; If you have the finances, you could buy the Majesty then trade both the 200 Scarabeo and the Majesty for Scarabeo ...
