“Best motorcycle i have ever owned”


written by Papaballoon on 18/10/2021

Ok.. addressing the "bad" from other writers. Windshield. Yep.. the stock plexiglass sample is not adequate. I bought an aftermarket. For a while i used a handlebar mount shield from my previous bike. That worked great. But it is certainly no worse than any other bike i have owned.
Acceleration. Nope.. not a drag racer. I have never been a speed racer. So no problem there.. it is adequate for its mission. You can change the weights in the variator to change the character of the "gear changes".

You can bit pick all you want. But i have ridden this 30,000 miles in 7 years. It is smooth, reliable, comfortable and quiet. It is "boring". Meaning that it starts, runs perfectly, and stops when you want it to.. no drama, no hassle. For around town it is great. For highway it is perfectly fine! I have had 3 scooters. This, a helix and a Majesty 400. All 3 have different points better than the others. But the morphous is Rock solid in side wind, smooth on the road and carves turns like it was on a solid rail. While the power is not spectacular (a 300 might be nice? And others have installed the maj 400 with great results) it is perfectly fine. " Buttery smooth" is how many describe it. I call the bike a delight to ride.
I have done 800 mile days (don't do this) and 2300 mile trips. As well as many 200 to 500 Mile trips. Good for touring at 60-65 all day long. For multiple days. Any motorcycle seat sucks after a few hours. So do most car seats.
I think it is the best, or tied for best, motorcycle ever built.. but i. Like small bikes..and scooters. So.. if you want a sport bike.. or a Harley, go somewhere else. If you want a great reliable, useful bike. This is it.
