PostSubject: Reflex as a second scoot   Thu Jul 20, 2017 7:09 am

Going to go look at a Reflex this weekend as a second scoot for my wife who also just got her MC endorsement.  Nice looking bike, this one in particular looks to be well cared for but to me is high miles at around 25K.   It's the first year, a 2001.  Trying to keep the price on the low side, so if she decides riding isn't her thing, then I'll sell it and recoup the cost.  I'm leaning toward something like this because its on the lighter side, 375 lbs but is still highway capable.  It could also work as the scoot we take with the motorhome when we travel.

I had one for a couple of months once and they are nice. But I had to get something bigger since the traffic in the SF bay area is fast and the Reflex, with me on it, topped out at only about 70 actual. But they are very smooth and comfortable. You may want to the the K-mod for better acceleration though. But they are very nice scoots. Yahoo has a great Reflex group and you can get great advice on that site for the Reflex. Good luck.

Search over.  Not a Reflex, but a nice little scoot for the wife nonetheless.  Bought from an older gentleman who got it new, less than 2000 miles with the factory top box.  I will have to put a taller windshield on it, but other than that, it's good to go.  

First impressions, its well made, nicely finished.  This particular one doesn't have a scratch on it.  Almost half the weight of the swing, which is good for my wife, she isn't a big woman.  Excellent acceleration, at least up to around 30-40 mph.  

Interesting starter, uses the integrated alternator as the starter motor, so when you hit the button, the motor jumps to life immediately, without the typical MC starter noise.  Very similar to her Hybrid car, almost like a slight bump and the motor is running.

It probably wouldn't be a great highway cruiser, though it supposedly can hit 70.  Not a concern, neither she or I plan on doing all that much of that on either bike.
