I don't know. The X10 doesn't really do it for me... Should be a great scooter though.

Yeah, for that kind of money, it should be.

It's probably a lot different, the DT and Forza should be the in the quick &
nimble bunch, the X10 is a fat pig in the Majesty/Burgman category.

I sometimes wish I had the comfort of the Majesty/Burgman, the DT looks
comfortable but in reality it's not as comfortable as it looks, and I'm guessing
most 13-14" wheeled maxi scoots are about the same.

I have no doubts that the Forza will have better suspension tho..

Unfortunately we neither have the Forza nor the X10 at this point. I can see Piaggio bringing in the X10 (may be). Now Honda Canada will import the Forza. Not sure why - once again - the US can't seem to get on with the program.

I had a 2005 Majesty 400. I still think it's a great scooter. I also had a Tmax and the only criticism I would have was that it needed a higher handlebar. I never was into the Burgman or the Silverwing.

yeah, the maxi scooter thing just isn't appealing. Practicality and storage space and power are, but man, the weight of those things...

I would love it if we had something like the Forza here, other than the DT or in a sense the BV (which I really like).

I could live with a Tmax.


..probably less so with it's fuel consumption.

Hey guys.
I have the older 2006 X8 250ie. It's actually not bad comfort-wise, and not bad with handling and flickability, not too heavy at 175kg, I'd say capable overall rather than outstanding anywhere.
I have a Dr Pulley variator, but with heavy weights for the highway, and a 7% taller rear tyre (145/70R12), but accel is still acceptable (0-50kph in well under 4secs), economy great at 30km/L highway at 105kph true speed.
I think the new Forza would be nicer with the SH300 motor in it........

I think that's what's in the Forza 300.

Oh.
I thought the SH had nearly 30HP, and the Forza has 24?
Nice motors though.

I think the SH is closer to 27 but yes, they reworked the engine in part for better gas mileage.

An extremely strong and durable tubular steel underbone frame underpins the NSS300 Forza’s chassis, and provides composed and confident handling in all conditions.

When I went scooter shopping the T-Max was the first bike I sat on. I love the idea of the T-Max, a scoot with sport bike handling and brakes without the sport bike neck and arm pain; but my knees and the bars were having an argument:(

Granted I was wearing boots, but I'm not into running shoes when riding. I like the 530 even better, then I get to thinking how difficult (read expensive) Yamaha likes to make service on their bikes.

Beautiful, exciting but expensive to keep happy. I've known women like that, ahhh temptation. LOL
