    Which 125cc scooter would you buy Honda PCX 125 or Yamaha NMax or other and why?

    Middle aged man buying new 125cc scooter to be used maybe 2 or 3 times a week hopefully a bit more.
    Have seen many reviews on youtube etc and talked to several in the business
    1 said Sinnis is OK, 1 said stick to Japanese models/stay away from Chinese models. Local dealership very poor reviews and bad customer service to me

    So I'm looking for any positive comments/advice
    Yes £2.7k for new is a bit of a stretch and wouldn't leave much room for "top quality" safety clothing/gear but I'm not going to be riding it daily and I'm not going to be hurtling down motorways at plus 70mph

    any advice or ideas or pointers/deals would be greatly appreciated

    i've heard loads of good reviews about yamaha cygnus, but honestly if i was you I'd be buying a motorcycle instead of a scooter.

    You are not me roflmao and I'd prefer for specific reasons a scooter (not having a dig but if I wanted a bike rather than scooter I would have specified said models)

    Or how about buying an old Honda CG125? Spend a grand on one and it will still be worth £800 in 3 years time.

    ^^Honda CG125^^

    I know its not a scooter but I would have one of them over a scooter any day of the week. They last for ever, parts are dirt cheap and they are very cheap to run!

    Scooters are lethal, out of nine people that I know who have had one six have come off them, myself included twice. Out of all the people who I know who have or had a motorbike (probably 20+) I can only remember five to come off that were not accidents (another vehicle involved) and one of them was a hedgehog. The only thing I can see that has changed and that may help is the ones you linked have ABS.

    Honda PCX 125 i would choose

    As you are the only poster who read and understood the question I'll have to mark you as best answer

    Sad that others failed to read and understand the basics of the question and / or provide fictitious malarkey regarding scooters are more dangerous - beggars belief

    Anyway thanks for taking your time to reply.
