The first comparison is practicality: thethree scooters all have a flat platform. In the leg shieldthe Peugeot has a small drawer with a lock, while the SYM andHonda have slots which are roomier but without any protection-be it security or rail. The riding position of the Vision and the Tweet is cozy, thelegroom is sufficient, while the Jet V is the highest should ondone have to move back on the saddle not to knock the leg shield.On the latter, thanks to the low seat height, touching theground is easy. In traffic, the Vision (the lightest of thethree) shows surprising maneuverability that allows you to weavein between cars with ease. However, it should be noted that theJet V has direction more easily, thanks to the 10"wheels. Alsothe a turning radius so small that it can maneuver in tightspaces. The Tweet is a bit less agile than rivals, but its frontend pays off with much less reactive stability - even in theclose to the maximum speed of 90 km/h as indicated - and withgreater precision when entering a curve.

In the traffic performance of the threeengines are almost equal and the Honda, even though it is a 110cc, it is not disadvantaged.

And finally, riding the scooters!Covering an average of 20 km a day starting on a Monday, werevividited the petrol station only on Friday. The credit goesto these three procudcts in that they are brilliant performanersbut are really not thirsty, in particular the Vision. During the"pit stop" the most practical however was the Jet V with the capplaced in leg shield which allows you to refuel without gettingoff. The rivals had to rais the saddle.

The choice is yours.
