  • Re: Xmax 300

    Aspro boy... The kms are rising (2900) and the XMax is doing fine. The most notable exception to most bikes is the fuel consumption. I maintain a steady 60-70kph at the moment and the indicated consumption is 42.3 kms per litre - I don't think any other bike (300) can beat that !  Overall - it is a better bike, but then that's what ...
  • Buying a seat from Yamaha

      Why would you offer a "Comfort" seat as an optional extra on an X-Max 300 (estimated $500) when the bike is already fitted with a seat? Could it be that Yamaha are making an  'in-between-the-lines' statement that ... "Our seat isn't very good and is uncomfortable, but we can sell you a proper one for $500 ...
  • Re: Xmax 300

    Aspro Boy I paid the retail, but got a discount via the good trad-in price that I got on my 2017 Kymco X-Town 300. What would I have bought if the X-Max 300 wasn't available? Nothing else attracted me, so I would have stayed with the X-Town as it was a pretty good all-round bike. The X-Max is good so far - am still running it in. The ...

  • Re: bad service

    *^-t happens - let us know who you are talking about so that others may avoid that supplier - you will be doing us all a service. PS Was it an ebay purchase ? If so give them a 'negative'. Cheers
  • Re: The end of 2017

    Rod Firstly - Have a better year ahead.  Secondly - Booker Bay sounds like a nice place to downsize - any vacancies? You have wheels - that's the main thing. You can now harrass a whole new section of the community ....   enjoy it all. Cheers
  • Re: Sydney Motorcycle &Scooter Show Darling Harbour

      Martin - It seems to me that Yamaha are not very agile in promoting the 3 wheel concept or they would have sold more. 3 wheels will always be better than 2, but the bike is seen as a novelty by the general public/ first buyer who tend to be conservative. They need to be coaxed!  (Wake up Yamaha!) Now if they raised the ...
  • Re: Kymco 550

    Rosco My guess is that much of this bike owes its DNA from the BMW built at the same stable. It sure has lots of modern ideas BUT, I suspect modern costs to go with it. eg. I think it has a belt drive to the overhead camshaft, a wet clutch that requires an eye to be kept on, and a nice large (no doubt expensive) rear drive belt that no doubt ...
  • Re: Upgrading from Piaggio Fly recommendations

    Shurik Based on my own experience - I suggest that a Kymco X-Town 300 would take a lot of beating at around your budget.
  • Re: Vespa styling

    Pyra - thanks for the information. It seems strange that such thing as styling / shape could be protected considering the number of years that have passed since the Vespa scooter was first introduced. Even patents and copyrights expire after fewer years than the approximate 70 years since introduction of the first Vespas. For how long can Piaggio ...
