Thats a tough one , how tall is he and what type of use eg commuting or touring . Piaggio do a great 125 engine and the Honda 125 is very good as well I think he is spoiled for choice

On a personal level I wouldn't class a 125 as a 'maxi'.

Bit semantic I know but the term 'maxi' in my view refers to the larger engined auto scoots, 400 +. I must emphasise this is my personal opinion, not intended to offend.

However haven ridden 125's for several years I do admit they are a most useful size scoot far superior to the 125's of old.

Choosing a machine would mean I would be spending a while going round all the showrooms or bike shows trying them out for size, looks and suitability.

Happy hunting. Very Happy

Very Happy I know its no longer in production but I remember a chap from tenerife riding an X9 125 round europe. The details are on the X9 site somewhere . It was fast the economy was good and and in true superscoot fashion kept its rider warm and dry. I dont know which of piaggios products still use that engine but its a good one . bounce

I have adjusted to low powered machines over the last year and enjoying them more and more, the VanVan is a great simple bike, the Honda 250 is a good quality roadster, it may be time to get a small 125 maxi scooter, The Swing 125 looks the best around at the moment, the Piaggio leader engine probably is the class leader, but I'm sure the build quality and dealer network is better for the Honda.
What sort of speed and MPG does the Swing manage in real use? Will it maintain 60mph on motorways, so that you run at coach and lorry speed for hours at a time. I have been on rideouts with 125's many times and I was impressed with an X8 owned by Vic, it kept up with the likes of 650 Burgers, my old Tmax and X9 500's.
