Re: The Satelis compared to the Elystar

: Now, that's a good point for those who commute. You don't want to fuel up every other day, and I bet you'd ride a diesel if it was available as a scooter.
:
Diesel? No way!
:
: Why would anyone want to open a boot remotely?
: It reminds me of the "eject CD" button on a HiFi remote control unit. What's that good for?
:
It is really helpful to have the boot already open for you just to drop your shpping in, without fumbling with a key in the lock, especially in the dark.

: : The security chain is not the Boa, but an Abus one, which is stowed in the boot but has it's own special fitting.
:
: Do you have to remove that chain and fit it, then get it off and stow it aain? Doesn't it simply get pushed back into the panels like the Ely's boa?
:
The chain stows in the boot, and you push it into a hole on the outside at the rear of the bike, once you have turned the key in the special lock, which is INSIDE the boot. This is a lot more secure, as the boot must be broken into and then the lock must be tackled.

: : The glovebox is much larger and has a 12v socket in it.
:
: Now, that's a good plus! Although a socket INSIDE a glove box seems odd. How would you plug in a GPS unit or an intercom cable?
:
I am not sure, but a GPS unit is an optional extra, so it musy be possible.

: : There is also the option of a pull-out cover to keep the seat dry when parked.
:
: Wow! I've never seen such a feature, but it makes a lot of sense.
:
: It does, I have used it and it is very nice to come back to a dry seat.

: The screen is much bigger, but the combination of the bigger screen and my crash helmet is not a happy one: I am getting much more wind noise than before.
:
: The screen is not adjustable, I suppose? Do you get any buffeting on your back?
: Although I suppose you don't look through the screen when riding (if so, get rid of it right away), you may still want a smaller one. Are there any smaller screen models available for the Satelis?
:
:Not that I know of.
: :
: : Finally, and most important, Erick. There is only a choice of 2 colours for the 250 Exec, silver or black. The black is striking, but I chose silver as I think it looks better overall.
:
: Excellent. So you not only have the fastest colour, but the one for the laziest scooter cleaners as well.
:
: : Unfortunately, there is no blue or bright red, or any other "fast" colours. Shame!
:
: *sigh*
: There's no faster colour than silver! :-)
:
: OK, Stephen. Now, let's have your first pictures!
: [Meanwhile, keep the rubber parts on the road, will you?]

No pictures yet, but I have found, using my own gps, that the 250 reaches 81mph (130kph)
