    I'm a big fan too, love the 400s.
    I prefer the 12" rear, the rim takes a CT easily (30K km tyre life), and is a bit deeper under seat. Having both would be perfect.

    True, true..
    The storage (and especially double access) is amazing on the X8.

    Also.. I don't seem to like the X-EVO as much.. don't know where they were
    going with that scoot.

    That's the best 400 piaggio based scoot that I ever tried.

    You know I'm not particularly fond of the BV/Beverly, but this is the BV
    done right. However, leftover stock here was sold quickly for the price
    less then the BV125 (and this was a 400 and 500) because the 1)
    imported "went under" and there was a lot of talk about electrical issues.

    I got that thing up to 100mph indicated and it felt better planted at the
    tight stuff then my kawasaki 650r. The 400's regular price was lower then
    what they're asking for a BV350 now, however, the 500 with ABS was
    A LOT (like 20-25%) more.

    Too bad.

    We're kinda like you two. Wifester has a 400 Burg, and I finally joined in the fun with a 650 Burgman. We're a 2 Burg family here.:clap

    Seriously, I saw more people looking, and taking pictures of it, than of any other bike there. :D

    My 25,000 mile '08 Vino 125. Currently in storage in my living room with the gas tank and carb drained and connected to a battery tender after a several hundred mile trip a couple of weeks ago. Now riding my 2012 Zuma 125 most of the time. Will get a picture of my '09 Stella up asap.
