The Best Maxi scooters for the UK in 2018
« em: 28 de Julho de 2018, 10:23 »


As the name implies a Maxi scooter is much like the scooters you're used to seeing zipping about urban areas only scaled up in size and power to create something with its own unique style and feel. These Maxi scooters are still fantastic commuters and retain the ease of use, mobility and economic performance associated with the scooter category, but add an extra layer of versatility on top. The increase in size offers greater stability for a smoother and more comfortable ride while the larger engine makes longer commutes and trips down the motorway far more manageable.

Most maxi scooters can be ridden on an A2 licence and the automatic transmission and comfy riding position can make them a great option both for beginners who want to concentrate on riding fundamentals and for more advanced riders who simply want a relaxing and economical commute. These larger models can also be a great choice for scooter enthusiasts who love riding scooters but want a little bit more oomph in certain situations...

This week we're looking at 300cc scooters and in part two we'll check out some of the even bigger scooters on the market.

With the introduction out of the way let’s take a look at some of our favourite big scooters!

Kymco X-Town 300i



Taiwanese manufacturer Kymco have been making scooters for the UK market for 20 years now and during that time have grown from strength to strength. Having produced parts for Honda in their early days, Kymco have also been key manufacturing partners with big name companies like BMW and Kawasaki in recent years, so it's no surprise Kymco's own models can stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of them. The X-Town 300i was a brand new scooter for 2017, an evolution of their popular Downtown 300 model built to meet the new Euro 4 regulations while still offering performance and design enhancements.

The look of the X-Town 300i is familiar enough to be recognisable to fans of the Downtown but it has a slimmer and slightly more angular design that modernises and freshens it up. On top of that it features a unique X-shaped LED tail light that's very distinctive with twin LED head lights up front completing its styling nicely. The X-Town has an LCD display, new multi-spoke aluminium wheels - 14" at the front 13" at the back, leather seats with a spacious under seat storage area that can hold 2 full faced lids, 5 setting adjustable rear shocks and BOSCH ABS. The 276cc four stroke, single cylinder engine can reach top speeds of 80mph with a fuel economy of 70mpg making a regular commute as well as long distance travel no problem. All this and its one of the cheapest models in the list at £4,599.

Piaggio Beverly 300 ABS-ASR



The name Piaggio is synonymous with scooters and one of the most instantly recognisable brands on the market. The Beverly 300 is in their own words the 'creme de la creme' of their high wheel offerings and comes in several variations, including a collaboration with Italian fashion house Police, which indicates straight away one of the scooter's key features - its unique Italian design. The sophistication doesn't end with its looks however, the Beverly 300 ABS-ASR is designed to perform well in all conditions utilising a traction control system that employs sensors on each wheel to detect any adhesion loss and adjust torque accordingly. ABS brakes, remote seat unlocking with two large compartments for storage, a bike finder that will help locate your scooter in a busy parking area, LED lights and highly economical fuel consumption, round out an impressive package with a very competitive price tag of around £4,399.

Yamaha XMAX 300



Yamaha's MAX range has been hugely popular in Europe for a while now with the XMAX 250 being a top seller since its launch 11 years ago. The coming of Euro-4 emission regulations meant that a brand-new replacement for the 250 arrived in 2017, the XMAX 300. The decision to increase the engine size was a smart move as 300cc scooters have been gaining in popularity and the increase allows the new model to be an upgrade over its predecessor in every way, despite the new stricter regulations. Along with the more powerful engine the XMAX 300 features a new chassis and a frame that's actually lighter than the previous 250 version.

The XMAX 300 has plenty of modern features including ABS and traction control, it also uses motorcycle style front forks like its big brother the TMAX for increased stability and a more agile sporty feel to its handling. The increased power and sportier performance of this model make for speedy commuting and combined with adjustable handlebar and screen positions and a luxurious seat, long distance rides are a pleasure as well. One unique feature of the XMAX is a keyless ignition system, allowing the scooter to be unlocked and started by remote similar to a car. This one sits at the top of the price range at £5,199 which is motorcycle territory, but it also offers motorcycle performance and features.

Vespa GTS 300



The first thing the Vespa GTS 300 has going for it is that it's a Vespa. Vespas are truly iconic in the scootering world and the GTS takes its design cues from the classic PX, in fact post Euro-4 it's currently about as close as you can get to a new PX and that is a major selling point in itself. While you have a classic stylish Vespa look, the GTS's 278cc liquid cooled, single cylinder four-stroke engine can reach a top speed of 82mph and cruise at 70 all day long making it equally at home on a commute or touring longer distances, great for enthusiasts travelling to rally’s. The GTS comes with ABS as standard, the same ASR traction control system seen in the Beverly and adjustable suspension so despite its classic looks there's no shortage of modern tech. Another thing not to be taken lightly is the comfort of this model, both single and two-up riding can be done over long distances in luxurious comfort which further adds to the all-round appeal. The only downside I can think to the Vespa GTS 300 is the price tag, at £4,899 it's at the steeper end of the 300cc market but Vespa enthusiasts will find it well worth the money.

Honda SH300i



The Honda SH series has been around for over 30 years now and in that time more than a million units have been sold across Europe and the latest model, the SH300i looks set to continue that trend. For me the SH300i is similar to Honda's CB range - it’s not the best looking in the class, but the all-round performance and famous Honda build quality make up for it. That being said the SH is by no means a bad looking scooter having recently been updated for 2016 but the most important update was the new Euro 4 compliant engine. A Liquid-cooled 4-stroke single with Honda's PGM-FI electronic fuel injection makes the scooter not only extremely economical but also one of the best performing on the list as well with top speeds of 91mph. The engine has been designed with powerful low-end torque to make pulling away from lights faster and smoother which is great for commuting and although you won’t be using that 91mph on UK roads it does mean cruising at the legal limit will be smoother and burn less fuel. The 16” wheels make for a confident ride and an impressive amount of lean. ABS come as standard and although it is missing the traction control of some of the other scooters on the list, most of the modern features expected of cutting edge scooters are present. Priced at £4,799 The Honda SH300i is another great addition to this list.

SYM Joymax 300i



Another Taiwanese manufacturer making great scooters that easily keep up with the competition in terms of quality, is SYM. Sanyang Motor are well known for the cars they produce under the Hyundai brand, their two-wheel offerings are released under the SYM brand and the Joymax 300i is great example.

The Joymax has all the features you've come to expect in a maxi-scooter - tight modern aesthetics, nippy handling and acceleration, ample storage space, ABS brakes, LED lights, strong commuting and touring performance. LED indicators integrated into the mirrors are a nice touch that look good and allow for high visibility. Electronic fuel injection is another nice feature in the Joymax 300i that increases fuel economy and a warm air outlet in the footwell is a welcome addition to UK commuters who will be doing a fair amount of riding on cold days. A large ergonomic seat with adjustable back rest creates a level of comfort that can be hard to find on a motorcycle, combined with the increased stability of the 14" front and 13" rear wheels and you have a very comfortable ride which can handle anything you throw at it. A price tag of £4,999 makes this one of the pricier offerings but also one of the most luxurious.

If you like the sound of any of the models discussed here, then why not look for your nearest dealer and find out more? If you need an insurance quote, Lexham specialises in scooter insurance so be sure to get a quote direct for the best prices!

 

Kymco Xciting 400i



Another offering from Kymco, the Xciting 400i is the first of the larger models on our list and in my opinion one of the best looking. The angular twin LED headlights and stylish smoked front screen convey an aggressive, sporty vibe and the theme continues throughout the rest of the scooter's clean and cutting edge design. The Xciting 400i makes for a strong alternative to low capacity motorcycles. The 399cc single cylinder, four stroke, liquid cooled engine is capable of top speeds of 95mph making light work of both short and long distance commutes, you certainly won't have to worry about any lack of power. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) ensures the engine stays in optimum rev ranges during its automatic gear shifts leaving you to focus on and enjoy the actual ride. A 5-stage adjustable rear suspension combined with superior manoeuvrability and an impressive lean angle makes the Xciting feel more like a motorcycle than a scooter, but with improved comfort and infinitely more luggage space than a comparable motorcycle would feature. Add to that a very reasonable price tag of £5,092, a 65 mpg fuel economy, BOSCH ABS as standard and a lot less hassle in the maintenance department and you have a very nice alternative to a commuter motorcycle.

 

Peugeot Satellis 2 400



The Peugeot Satellis 2 400 lacks some of the high tech features which other models in this category have, there's no ABS or traction control here, but what it does have is a budget price and a focus on performance. Peugeot's RRP is just £4,899, which for a 400cc scooter is very competitive and the liquid cooled four-valve single puts out an impressive 36.7bhp making it one of the most formidable maxi-scooters out there. If you're looking for an efficient commuter that has plenty of grunt for urban riding and you're not bothered about the modern gadgets scooters come loaded with these days, then the Satellis is a good option. Having said that it does still feature a digital instrument panel with an onboard computer, a central locking system and a built in immobiliser. Like the other maxi-scooters we've looked at, the Satellis is also a very capable tourer. Smooth automatic transmission, a wide front fairing and 450mm screen combined with a luxurious seat (with backrests for both rider and pillion) make for an easy and relaxing ride that can soak up the miles.

 

Suzuki Burgman 400



The Burgman is one of the original maxi-scooters, first arriving on the scene in 1998 and having seen several updates over the years, the latest being in 2018. With the new Burgman 400, Suzuki have gone in a sportier direction, both in looks and performance, if a 400cc scooter is an alternative to a motorcycle they want it to feel that way. The wheels have been upped to 15" for increased stability, the fairing has been streamlined into an angular sleek design and the 30.5bhp 400cc engine has been tuned to provide more torque at the low end, creating a more responsive ride that's faster off the mark. Despite the sportier performance the Burgman still offers a very impressive fuel economy, according to Suzuki it will do 70mpg, and the digital display has the 'Eco Drive Indicator' feature that will let you know how efficiently you're currently riding in terms of fuel consumption. The scooter features ABS as standard and a unique seven-step adjustable shock which could be very handy for two up riding. The Burgman 400 has slightly smaller under seat storage with room for one full faced helmet but it does have 2 additional glove boxes for smaller items. The main negative to weigh up here will be the price tag, at £6,299 it's the most expensive of the 400cc machines on this list.

 

Yamaha TMAX DX



The Yamaha TMAX is another venerable model having been on sale now for over 16 years, it's also the biggest selling maxi-scooter in Europe. The TMAX DX is the deluxe version and is perhaps the ultimate scooter, packing in every luxury and gizmo you can think of. ABS, traction control, cruise control, keyless ignition, riding modes, heated grips and a heated seat, the TMAX DX has them all. Equally adept at commuting or touring, the wide fairing and electronically adjustable screen provide plenty of protection from the elements and the heated grips and seat make for comfortable riding all year round. The engine is a 530cc inline twin that provides plenty of power and torque, combine that with a lightweight aluminium chassis and you get a scooter that performs and handles like a motorcycle. All these features come with a cost however and the TMAX DX price starts at £11,349 but for that you get one of the most capable commuters in any market, not just among scooters. For those looking for something a bit more budget there is a standard version that comes with a few less bells and whistles available from £9,999. Some people are put off by the word scooter but there's a reason these things are such huge sellers all through Europe.

 

Sym Maxsym 600i



We talked about Sym in the previous blog, another Taiwanese manufacturer who may not be quite as well known as the Japanese or Italian options but have established a reputation for making very high quality scooters. The Maxsym 600i is their top of the line maxi-scooter packing a 565cc single cylinder engine with an output of 45bhp and offering motorcycle rivalling performance with luxurious comfort. Like all the other maxi scooters we've looked at, the automatic transmission makes for a relaxing ride and when combined with a seat that feels like an armchair, with separate rider and pillion backrests, not to mention Sym's unique hot air vent, you'll be eating up the miles in comfort whatever the British weather throws at you. Speaking of eating up the miles, the Maxsym 600i's quick acceleration and effortless motorway cruising speeds make it suitable for pretty much any commute or long distance ride you want to throw at it with a 70mpg fuel economy to boot. It's not loaded with features like the TMAX but it does come with ABS as standard and the £6,299 price tag is surprisingly low given the high quality and performance you get for it. If you're looking to try one of these luxury maxi scooters but don't want to break the bank this could be a great option.

So, what have we learned about maxi scooters? It's a market that is huge on the continent but relatively new to the UK scene but with a lot of options available they tend to tick all the boxes when it comes to commuting and touring power and if comfort is something you're after, one of these could be well worth a look.
