Re: Qooder missus

They are using at least 2 tilting scooters in the Tour De France not a clue as to what breed though. There are dozens of them! I think they are using Yamaha Nikens, but I'm not sure as there never seems to be a close up shot of them. They are certainly ugly enough to be Nikens! They are indeed Yama...

Re: XMAX 300 query

sh 300. The criteria is quite simple: 1. Sub 200kg, 250- 300cc 2. Local main dealer that I trust 3. Seating position with a decent perineum gap as stock without modification ... a lack of Honda dealers anywhere close that I would set foot in. The nearest one to me is 25 miles away, and I wouldn't b...

Re: XMAX 300 query

This was during one of the many trial& error phases, post-Airhawk trials.

A similar pad is now inserted within the seat. 8-)

Re: XMAX 300 query

What about the seat on the new 125 or 300 then? I didn't like the seat height or the hard brick like backrest of the XMax 300 at all. In contrast I find the seat on my Forza very comfortable, the seat height fine, and feet flat down is the new feet forward. I haven't checked out the Forza nor the S...

Re: XMAX 300 query

Sorry if I sound ungrateful on this. I do appreciate suggestions, but I have a particular need as regards seating position that isn't, well, normal. :lol:

Hence anyone else's perfectly valid view on comfort doesn't really apply.

Thanks all. 8-)

Re: XMAX 300 query

It also has a bump in the seat that presses into the perineum area. The Burgman 400 is sadly on my "not even close," list along with the J300 and Kymco Downtown 300. Shame as all 3 are great scooters. The Burgman 200 is on the magic bullet list for riding position, but doesn't meet my other criterio...

No-one offered me a replacement bike/scoot at any time
That's a poor show! I even got a courtesy bike from Piaggio in 2007 when my Nexus had a suspension strut changed under warranty.

Re: XMAX 300 query

I dont think you well get any unless you get a seat custom trimmed, my vanvan was painfull and that has an armchair as standard, think the only way is add foam where your sitbones are and leave a gap for coccyx to sit in or get a taller bike so weight can be taken on the legs i have found an nc750x...
