I get what people mean when they say its not all about speed but for goodness sake a 190kg bike with 20hp.Honda and kawasaki have more powerful 300cc scooters than that.
Equally, the Honda CB two-fifty had 16bhp and they sold loads of them.

Hmm - quote 1 misses the point by a country mile. scooter which is boring and bland, or a little 350 that makes you smile and is rewarding to ride. Quote 2, well Mrs NHN once had to ride one of those when visiting friends across while we both rode Hodna 350's, she christened it the 'Little Red Slug'! Its total blandness underwhelmed her. She loves the Meteor....I need to lock it....

Thank you, Rushour.

indeed I went out for a bumble this afternoon on Bumble as temperature climbed from 3c to 7 and it is nice and sunny, and with nowhere in particular to go - there's a song in there somewhere - did 30 miles around the north of Fraggle Rock. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and that's the service light on for its 300 miles seeing to. Annoys to have to pay for it, but for the warranty......as needs must.

Bonjour
Je vous écris de France, j'ai un Météor depuis peu et j'aimerais
savoir si vous savez faire remonter la pédale de frein,
je la trouve trop basse.
Merci pour vos réponses
Amicalement

Hello
I am writing to you from France, I have recently had a Meteor and I would like
know if you know how to raise the brake pedal,
I find it too low.
Thank you for your answers
Sincerely ;) ;)

Bonjour. I have done this modification and although a member of this forum was concerned about the brake being affected, in fact it's been fine. Here's how it's done (this is from our hosts US forum Re: Adjustment of rear brake lever?

Very simple system…pretty slick actually.

Loosen lock nut with 13 mm wrench. Pop off snap ring that is actually a part of the pivot pin. Unscrew front end 1/2 turn. Pop back pin/snap ring…tighten locknut
I'm attempting to attach a couple of photos which make it clearer. The clip is a bit of a fiddle to snap back into place. It needs patience...
