I've done over 10k miles on my Downtown 300i in 7-8 months, touring all
over the place.
The XC500 is more comforable, a bit faster (on open roads, acceleration is
actually faster on the DT300), and keeps it's line better at high speeds.
So yeah, it's a long distance beast.
It's actually a bit "heavy" around town, the DT300 is a lot better there.
It's a Kymco.
