Once we hit a straight stretch of road, I opened the tap to see what the XTown 300i could handle in terms of speed, and was rewarded with a brisk pull to 70 mph, at the expense of some excess vibration from the drivetrain. It wasn’t anything too out of place, but there was a bit of an “if you say so” from the engine every time I tested the upper limits. The brakes did well to slow the scooter down, and under hard braking, the front-only ABS stepped in before the bike began to lose grip. Under-seat storage was ample, with more than enough room for a jacket, gloves, spare shoes, and other personal items. A $3,999 MSRP places this scooter in the premium bang-for-your-buck category, quality and dependability being key focuses.
