I'm all for tooting the horn of our 500s, Clown emoticon Clown emoticon , and I DO LOVE MINE, but....

Why is the Kymco #4 when it has a perfect score? I guess the overall customer ratings aren't the only factor the judges used...dunno..

That's what I thought. Nothing is more fun than touring on your MP3 500.

You have to look at the reviews, the MP3 got 3 reviews, two were perfect score of 5 while the third was 4.5 and the Kymco only had 1 review and it was a 5

And in my (admittedly biased) opinion the 400 makes a better touring machine than the 500. More storage, better windscreen options. The only negative is slightly less power (approx. 13%).

The problem with this poll is that it is based on far too few responses to be seen as anything other than the opinions of a few people, none of whom, I am sure, have even test ridden all of the machines.

Nice to see one of our favorites at the top, though!

Right. And some people don't understand the rating system. One guy rating the TMAX gave it 1/5 stars, but in his review he said 10/10. Another guy gave it 3/5, but compared it to his VStrom 1000, not other scooters. So take these results with a grain of salt.

Considering my ride came out on top, I find the whole thing very scientific and completely infallible . Hooray for perfect surveys! Lol
