Scooter with best storage?

Rules:

1- has to be a scooter
2- has to be your personal experience
3- has to be storage built into scooter, not an added boot
4- has to be storage for stuff besides a helmet Or two

Looking to see if any particular scooter(s) fare better than others for storing stuff. Always hear ... Can store 2 full size helmets. But what about a bag of groceries or sack of dog food.

Just trying to learn from everyone's experiences. And much appreciated!

Burgman 400, Burgman 650, and the Silverwing seem to have the most storage.

The MP3 250 and 400 also have a good amount of storage.

Something often overlooked when considering storage is a flat floor board. I've hauled a ton of things on the floor board that would never have fit under the seat. I've found the underseat storage to be convenient but often impracticable as the holding volume is so shape dependent. It's the same reason I prefer a basket or crate over a top box.

Very good point! My Zuma 125 has a flat floor and I put stuff there a lot.

I totally agree. With a flat floor and decent cargo hook you can manage a pretty serious shopping trip. My Daelim S1 has a flat floor and reasonable underseat storage = good for shopping.

If your storage related to a road trip, then the Burgmans and Majesty would, I imagine, fit the bill.

Wow,

Another Daelim rider. I think that makes 2 of us on ADV. I believe your S1 and My S2 share everything but the engine.

Sure.... He could get one of those, and he could take pictures of big foot, considering one is as rare as the other.
