    My wife has a horse.
    Wish I could get her to ride a scooter instead, would save a fortune.

    I live a half mile from paved road on a dirt road with some gravel. All the local dirt/gravel roads are flat and hard packed so I intend to ride those in a limited way. Cars go down them at 40-50 mph no problem and few potholes. I can't see a problem with that even with low clearance. Will just have to keep an eye on CVT air cleaners. Most riding will be on paved road but on tours there will surely be times I need to take a dry dirt or gravel road. For a while I kept going back and forth between a Kaw Versys X 300 and the XMAX but have decided on the MAX. 90% I"ll be on paved.

    Informative video, wonder how many miles he had on those. Looked mangy. I also read somewhere about a pre filter but don't remember where that was? He didn't show any here.

    Has anyone found good quality lower wind deflectors? Not bad in the warmer months but now that its cold, the wind around my legs gets chilly!

    Clampett made some out of some plastic stuff he found at the dollar store. Contact him and he might share.

    What are those deflectors held on with? 2 sided tape? Just wondering about throwing them on for the winter months and then taking them off after for a few years.

    Dealer has 2019 XMAX with 300 miles. Asking $5188. I test drove 5 miles same scooter. Slight scratch on right side was dropped at dealer while showing. Was bought there and traded back in as buyer decided on a dirt bike. NADA says low retail $3670, Average $4830. KBB says $4950 good condition typical mileage. What say you on offer? So far I see no changes for 2020. New 2020 list is $5699.

    1 screw on the bottom footboards and 3m tape. Mine are clear and were cheaper. Search ebay for a better deal unless they are sold out.

    Pay the 5188 if he will take off all the pieces of plastic that are scratched, and replace them with new. Those pieces are inexpensive.

    5188 looks to be fair, (but on the high-end of fair)..... if that makes sense…

    Without seeing the scratch it's hard to comment on it, but as someone else said it would be nice if they'd just replace the panel. Are there any dealer fees on top of that price and does it include a warranty? Also, has the first service been done?

    Frankly for the price difference I would buy a new 2020.

    Thanks for comments. One thing about a new 2019 or 2020 would be that I pay transport and assembly whereas here all i would pay is $175 Doc & Title and maybe get to $5000 OTD plus tax. The scratch is minimal. A new one with fee would be closer to $6500 OTD. I see only two 2020 models and they popped up in FL. My dealer has not seen any yet and doesn't expect to for awhile. I do like the "grey" a little better.

    If you want the slightly damaged "USED" one, I'd print off the NADA and KBB prices and meet somewhere that you are happy and he makes a small reasonable profit. Remember he already made a profit off the machine .

    If for any reason you cannot come to a mutually agreed price, buy the new model .
    Either way you both win.

    Regardless of the mileage, it's a used, one model year old bike. That being said, if you're happy with the price, that's all that matters, no matter what!
