86 decibels is the German sound limit i'm told. There's an iPhone app decibel meter pro - walking around holding it up to the RT, GTL, the C650 is reads 86 decibels about 1 foot behind each exhaust pipe.

my take is 92 decibels is obnoxious, 96 is retarded loud, etc. every 3 dB's is like tripling the intensity.

would a 250 vespa be quieter? - probably

Seat height issue is being addressed by Saddleman leather seats this week
Buster the sales rep. Is having the seat cushion reworked to lower and narrow seat at the bottom,
He thinks this will effectively lower seat 1-1/2 inches added benefit they are installing their very comfortable gel insert

If brains were cotton you wouldn't have enough to make a piss-ant a kotex

They must have let you out of the basement for a while. Time to get back under your rock.

Do you know whether they will modify the heated seat, or just the regular seat? There is a hard plstic piece right in front of the seat, part of the body plastic which seemed to be as high as the top of the seat (hard to explain). Seems like it would be difficult to lower that much??

I really want one of these, and the seat height is too much.

Now that I have heard other people's impressions of vibration and engine (not exhast) noise I want to go on another test ride to check out the vibration and noise to see if this is livable or not.
After 2000 km I can tell there are no vibrations.
