  • Re: Are you getting your full quote of cc

    Pyrah Thanks for some very hand information - wish I had known it when I bought an Aprilia &quot;200&quot; quite some time ago - the lack of cc&#39;s / power resulted in a pig of a bike when carrying 2 up. Cheers
  • Re: Downtown 350i

    jpfvita - My only future plans for the Downtown now is to fit 17gm rollers (standard are 20x12x15.5gms). I did the same on the GTS 300i (same specs-different motor) which, although only about a 6% weight increase took advatage of the good low end torque without penalising exceleration much. The same should happen to the 350i only more so as the ...
  • Downtown 350i

    &nbsp; Have had the Kymco Downtown 350i for about 6 weeks now (2700kms). &nbsp;Smooth engine / response - quiet - very good handling - very economical (30-34 km/100) and easy on the eye. Certainly bears out with the sales pitch - more torque low down - excellent fitting panels and the electronics etc all work well. My &quot;summer&quot; ...
  • Re: Vespa GTS300 - Number Plate Holder

    &nbsp; &nbsp; The owner of the Vespa GT300 (Aaron PM) no doubt thinks his bike would look a little better by wearing something more imaginative than ugly. &nbsp;

    Aaron -&nbsp; (An old fashioned solution) - If it doesn&#39;t look so good put a bag over it ! &nbsp;
  • Re: Do we really need a licence

    Rod - I couldn&#39;t agree more.&nbsp; Training (habits) - A solution way beyond the comprehension of government &#39;interllectuals&#39;. How could such persons suffering from FRS (free ride syndrome) possibly grasp a notion like that anyway ? No&nbsp; -&nbsp; I&#39;m afraid we are stuck with ignorance ...............&nbsp;&nbsp; and more ...
  • Re: Where Next

    Ferrix - I agree - the service intervals are too short. Out of interest - How would scooter dealers go about offering &#39;fixed price&#39; services over say, 1,2, or 3 years. My partner recently bought a new Toyota Corolla - First service free - next&nbsp; 6 (yes six) services (10k or 1 year) for $140 each. Now I&#39;m not suggesting that two ...
  • Re: Where Next

    Rod - I think this raises the issue of viability. The fuel cost of running a scooter has never really been an issue in my opinion, but the overall running cost is. The two main things that hang in the minds of owners OR potential owner of scooters in my opinion is 1. servicing convernience / cost - 2. Depreciation . Also, when considering ...
  • Re: upgrading from a Sym HD200 to ....???

    Scootergal - My own experience on a Kymco GTS 300i would have me believe it is just the scooter you would enjoy. Large wheels - excellent power-to-weight ratio, reliable and economical. The handling is good - disc brakes front and back - very well finished. The price won&#39;t hurt you either. It might not have ABS but you can lower the tyre ...

    Rod - I agree with all that you have said. May I add something to help those who buy a scooter for the first time : -&nbsp; Riders invariably buy scooters for reasons of &quot;transport&quot; per se; Most motorcyclists buy for fun only. BUT - a scooter is more fun than a motorcycle if one recognises that no vehicle can be &#39;all things to all ...
