Hi I've been a scooter rider for about 18 months. I currently ride a Bolwell HD200 and use it to commute to work. I'm now thinking I would like to upgrade to a maxi as I want to try some longer journeys on the weekend. I am wondering how much manouverability and zippiness (vital for commuting in sydney) may be lost if i upgrade to a bigger, bulkier scoot. There seem to be a few on the market. I would love a Yamaha XP 500 but it's a little out of my price range. Alternatively I quite like the look (and extras) on a Piaggio X9 500. I have also seen that Bug will be bringing out the Xciting 500. Would anyboy like to share their experiences in upgrading to a maxi? Has anyone ridden these scoots? Any recommendations?
