    You misunderstood. I referred to the NX4 as a scoot, meaning a small motorcycle.

    It would definitely not be my choice for two-up riding any serious distances. Definitely check the fit before you buy.

    OK, I understood.
    Yes it's small, but considering prices in Chile and the fact I'll need to resell the bike fast at the end of the trip, it sounds to be the best option as it is a popular bike.
    For sure it will be a big change after the KTM 950 but at least it will be lighter and cheaper to fix.

    My girl friend does not take a lot of space and I'm not big size either, so it should be more or less ok. and at the end, it doesn't seem to be worst than a KLR for two up (that was my initial choice).

    The Falcon fit 2 up fairly comfortably. If you travel light the power will be "ok" up to about 90kph & then quite sparse after that. Consider getting a smaller front sprocket.

    On the gravel & such you be fine. Big high passes up North will be slow but doable.

    I'm currently in the Pucón Region, still alone but with the bike very loaded (I'll have to get rid of stuff before the lady arrives).
    I road a lot of back roads, dirt, rocks, with the load, the bike performs very well!
