My Burgman 400 for sale or swop with adjustment for CN250

Post by Jimo » Sun Apr 29, 2018 2:01 pm

Hi guys, I've had my Burgman 400 for 3 years and haven't ridden it much due to medical problems at 80, also my small wife finds it impossible to get on it due to the large seat, so it has to go to make room for a CN250 that is also on my WANT LIST.
It has been fitted with a new AF266 screen, Ball mount for GPS, Datatool Alarm, and Data-tag protection, it has 11,00 odd miles and is coloured Black and has a few small scratches on left bodywork after falling over while stationary.

I had a '90 CN250 from new but stupidly sold it about 3 years ago with 7,000 miles on to get the burger, now I want to revert back so if anyone can help in any way please PM me or call.

Jim

Good styling, but they both have Italian wiring :o Sticking with Honda there is the later Foresight, also with CN250 engine

Hi bud, one of attractions of the long and low Helix is it's 26" seat height, so the passenger seat won't be as high as most other maxi scooters, although it's always looked a little on the small side. The Helix is also relatively easy to move about at 345 lbs.

Hi bud, I'd forgotten how low the Helix was :oops: I keep thinking of getting something lighter than the SilverWing, but it would mean giving up some of it's utility, which was the main reason for getting it in the first place

Did the X7 have the Honda motor, I don't think it did. The X9 250 & 250SL did though.

Then somehow that Honda engine originally from the Helix had it's carburettor replaced by fuel injection and it's emissions cleaned up by Piaggio to pass Euro 3.

Some of the last Hexagons had fuel injection and rear disc brakes
