The Burgman series of scooters (known in Japan as Skywave) is produced by Suzuki with engine capacities from 125 cc up to 650 cc. At the time of debut in the 400 cc displacement, it was the first single-cylinder maxi-scooter over 250cc.
Equipped with 4-stroke engine coolant and brake system with disc brakes both in front and rear, it was partly revised in 2001. Two more restylings followed; the first in 2003 with the addition of the double front headlight and the softening of the lines while the second restyling takes place in 2007 where the line becomes slimmer and sporty. From road tests it has been found that its advantages are hospitality on board for pilot and passenger, load capacity and handling.
Since 2007, the 150 cc displacement is not available, replaced by the 200 cc displacement. The top model remains the 650 Executive, which unlike the smaller models, offers a two-cylinder engine and an electronically assisted CVT gearbox. The lower displacement models, on the other hand, are traditional in the field of these vehicles, the traditional CVT gearbox with rollers.

The Piaggio MP3 is a tilting three-wheeled scooter from Italian manufacturer Piaggio first marketed in 2006 noted for its combination of two front wheels and a single rear wheel. MP3 is an acronym of Moto Piaggio a 3 ruote, Italian for “Piaggio motorcycle with 3 wheels”.
Since introduction 125cc, 250cc, 300 (278) cc, 400cc and 500cc versions have been available. In Europe, the 500 cc version is marketed under the sporty Gilera brand, called the Gilera Fuoco 500ie. In the United States, the 125 cc is not available, and the Fuoco is marketed as the Piaggio MP3 500. In June 2009, the MP3 LT 400 was launched in the UK. This version has a slightly wider front track allowing it to be classified as a tricycle rather than as a motorcycle (as are the other versions). This allows the LT400 variant to be driven on a standard UK car licence rather than the motorcycle licence required for the original versions.
Peugeot Django is a neo-retro scooter that resurrects the myth of the Peugeot S55, the very first scooter marketed by Peugeot which over time evolved into the S57. Created in the early 1950s, the S55 was a very comfortable and well-equipped two-seater scooter. As a symbol of freedom and French elegance, Peugeot designers have taken their inspiration from these past scooters to create the silhouette of its successor: Django.
Inspired by its past, Django is a scooter with lines that seem to want to rewrite history, 60 years later. Above all, Django is an elegant creation. Standing solidly on its 12’’ wheels, Django’s lines flow like a flagship, characterised by its well-rounded rear wings punctuated by 3 air intakes and it’s long, streamlined bodywork reminiscent of the saloon cars of that era.
Django comes with a range of engines from 50cc 2-stroke and 4-stroke to 150cc 4-stroke, and also the 125cc 4-stroke.
The Honda Forza (meaning strength and forcefulness in Italian) is a maxi-scooter lineage made by Honda, originally with the Honda Forza 300 model. In 2015 Forza 125 complements the existing 300cc version. The aim, Honda modestly claims, is to ‘be the very best a 125cc scooter can be’.
Honda Forza makes its debut for 2014 as Honda’s first maxi scooter introduced to North America in over a decade. While both the scooter and nameplate are new, from 2001 to 2007 the first generation of the Forza (NSS250) was sold in the USA and Canada under the Reflex name. Despite the shared lineage, this new Forza has little in common with the Reflex of old. The third generation Forza is an entirely new and superior machine from the frame to the high tech motor.
