    You bought a scooter, you’re the target consumer for this labor saver tech.

    Yep, have an Xmax 300 absolutely brilliant machine. My business is IT and Tech, so I understand it and am comfortable with it, it can't be stopped so either embrace it or get left behind.

    A ha ha ha ha. Get left behind what? People with imperious attitudes and an overblown sense of self-importance? If that's left behind, sign me up baby!

    You have a very vivid imagination of people you've never met. The fact I'm honest about my involvement in IT/Tech seems to upset you, very strange. If I were you, I wouldn't be looking at any new modern bike as most seem to have tech that you won't like, ECU's controlling ABS, FI, traction control, LED lights, TFT dashboard displays, TBW, etc. I suggest yous stick with non-FI, drum braked models with filament bulb lighting. Even the Yamaha T700, which is supposed to be a very 'basic' bike has a full LCD dash, ABS and FI.

    Braaapppp, wrong again Bob! I am also in tech, have been for decades and love good, reliable tech. My response is based on the tone of your posts, not your love of diodes.

    PS, we can take this to IM or head explody, on here, I am done with ya.

    The new block is now rated at 101 horsepower, a 7-hp output increase over the current model, and 77 lb-ft of torque. To help increase power while also reducing emission, Honda designed a muffler equipped with a variable Exhaust Control Valve (ECV). The model now also offers six driving modes: tour, urban, gravel, and off-road as well as two customizable settings. The modes vary the input and the braking power depending on the situation and desired level of aggressiveness.

    The suspension set up remains virtually the same with a Showa 45mm inverted fork with 9.1 inches of travel at the front and a Showa shock teamed with a Pro-Link swingarm allowing for 8.7 inches of wheel travel. The size of the wheels also remains unchanged with a 21-inch wire-spoke rim at the front and an 18-inch one at the back. Stopping power is provided by the same brakes as the 2019 model, four-piston calipers teamed with a 310mm disc and a single-piston block at the back paired with a 256mm disc, both paired up with cornering ABS.
