Eh, not to crazy about the styling. Doesn't look like it has any storage to speak of. The step through is so high it would be mostly useless for that function. I think I would pass.

It's attractive ok, but it is not a scooter by any definition.

Interesting option,
The tires suggest an off road function, and if you're camping, imagine what size hump bag/tent/backpack you could fit on it.

Almost a 2 wheel bug out vehicle.

Curious why you say it's not a scooter by any definition. Actually kind of strikes me a hybrid ... but that's just me. Not sure whether I think it has the best attributes of a scooter and a bike, or the worst of each ... kind of waffling on that one just looking at it. But I sure would enjoy giving it a test ride.

Looks pretty cool to me. Could certainly fill a niche some of you light off road guys seem to be looking for.

Suzuki must do something about it. Burgman 750 or 800 cc would not be a bad start. I don't understand scooter adventure thing, but upgrade to Burgie family will become overdue with this release from Honda.

Burgman 650 '04 Exec black (too much a scoot)
Last true 400.
Suzuki DL1000. (gone but still most miles)

It is interesting looking. But one reason why I could never see owning one is that Honda says to have the valves checked/adjusted at the same intervals that they recommend oil changes- every 8000 miles unless they changed it for this model. But if so who wants to spend a couple of hundred bucks every time you change the oil? Not me.

Folks often ask me "what is the difference between a motorcycle and a scooter"?

It works best if I just say: It's a scooter if it has a step-thru frame, small wheels, and a trunk (boot) for groceries".

To be honest, I have never looked up, or asked anyone, for the proper definition of a scooter !!

Thanks for that information, Rustydust. Gotta say, after your informing me of the valve adjustment intervals my interest is dwindling down.

I doubt that Integra owners are actually following that 8000 mile maintenance, other than oil change.
