    Opinions - Commuter scooter

    Thinking of getting back on a second-hand scooter for my daily ( 5 mile commute).
    Have had Honda's SH 125 in the past and really like it.
    But am also considering Yamaha's XMAX 250: what are they like?

    Bought myself a new Honda pcx 125 a few years ago for the same reason, commuting into Salford and back.. Never thought I'd buy a scooter but absolutely loved it! 125mpg and just about quick enough for the motorway.. Cheaper than walking and stopped putting shitty miles on my proper bike!

    Love my SH125i , absolute convert to scooters for city riding. Quite fancy a SH300i, but given my commute is 30 and 40 limits and < 5 miles, its not really necessary. Also the bigger you go, the more weight.

    Quite fancy a go on a TMAX 530 DX though.

    RBW.
