great scoot bry! ...had one before... i like the boot! .. para kang may trunk (parang sa kotse, may light pa) hehe...

if you could find a stock hexagon, ok yan! .. but a modified one medyo malakas sa gas.. yung nakamalossi block yun ah... gas guzzler hehe

Sarap!

Smooth auto with very comfortable seats.  stock 180cc version, inspite of (or maybe because of) a/t, will likely outrun a stock PX150.

Adjustable rear shocks, large boot, stock halogens, tubeless tires and front disc brakes are definite assets.

Precursor of (and similar to) the X9 without the high price tag and problematic digital gauges.

Very nice... Body same like the X9 with the speed of a Runner. Must be a winner.

Had the 150LX and the 180cc. Both were very good scooters. But I had aftermarket suspension systems in both since the stock system tend to dip. The available suspension systems are Bitubo (MCS) and Malossi (Access Plus).

@direkkey,

how does the aftermarket suspensions differ from the stock shocks? and usually how much does it cost?

@lex,

how's the fuel consumption in terms of km/liter - city drive?

I've seen a Hexagon for sale and hopefully acquire it as soon as I raise the money within the week. just wanted to get some info from you guys about the scoot.

thanks in advance

Worlds apart. They are at about 30k/pair.

yep yep.. malossi shocks are nice! ... ganda ng handling...

yung hex ko, 150 cc fitted with a 172cc malossi block, 24mm card... tulin! ... but consumption around 9-10 km per liter only... stock engine around more than double the kms/liter i presume...

so with a stock engine, fuel consumption is still economical, considering its a 180cc 2-stroke..

another query, have you guys experienced any overheating incidents with the scoot?

thanks

It has a built it sensor to activate the auxilliary fan when it hits the warning levels. The Hexagon is quite notorius when it comes to activating the fan more so in traffic situations. The secret is to always make sure that the sender is working properly.

Finally got my own hexagon yesterday..

sa sobrang excitement ndi nakatulog over the weekend..hehehe.. ;D

tanong ko lang kung ano gamit nyo or recommended nyo na Gear Oil and 2t Oil?

Thanks in advance

scootmd on March 06, 2007, 03:27:41 PM
hello patvill,  congratulations own your new steed! anyway, for your gear oil, you can use  the SAE 80 or 90 gear oil.  that is the grade of oil recommended. i hope i helped you on your inquiry.


scootmd on March 06, 2007, 03:30:03 PM
about the 2T, any will do but i suggest to use full synthetic oil. better lubrication and less smoke.

patvil on March 06, 2007, 04:06:21 PM
thanks a lot scootmd for that info..
