It could be worse.  So many scooters these days only come in Gray like the AK550 in the US.  I like white better anyway.

That's depressing!!! Gray wasn't even offered over here when I got mine. It is now and white has been removed from the list.

The photos/videos of the C400GT look kewl. If the expanding storage compartment is still good for 2021, I can see that as a plus but also can see some getting into trouble with it.
Or does it have some type of safety to keep you from driving off with it still expanded?
Aggressive look. Reminds me of the CTX1300. I thought it was fugly at first, but it grew on me and was awesome after I got past the initial repulsion.

In negotiations with the CFO for the AK at present. These things unfortunately take considerable time  

Edit: Looks like it is made in China. Reviews seem to say the mpg is a bit low.

I LOVE the flat grey on my 2015 Tmax. I think it looks badass.
I also loved the yellow on my 2009 Tmax. It looked sporty.
I never cared for the blue on the other 2009 Tmax. I thought it was boring.

Granted that there are a few places where the workmanship seems to be a bit below standard but mechanically it's one fantastic piece of machinery. I'm going to ass/u/me that they've gotten some of the glitches in the software worked out as after the latest update things seem to be in better shape.

We had a bit of a cold snap this winter and the OEM battery kicked the bucket! It wasn't that cold and it hadn't been 2 years since I'd bought the AK. And, whatever you do DO NOT LOSE THE KEY FOBS. Replacement will cost over $1000.

Here's my records of fuel consumption. You'll need to take into account that the vast majority of my riding is urban and that when I'm on the highway I'm running at 80MpH or better.
