    Still looking for scooter guys, just in case anyone actually wants to sell one instead of just talk about selling one!

    The X Joy 2. It's cheap enough new (1200) and really nice to use. It's a good boat scooter and I doubt you'll find anything equal much cheaper second-hand. That's good if you ever get fed up with it or give up. It will sell for a good amount and you won't lose much at all.

    The Xjoy7 is a bit bigger, but it is lead acid based. Very cheap battery replacements makes it attractive if you see one 2nd hand.

    Anyone able to objectively compare these two based upon actual field use? The Aquaprop being smaller and lighter appears to offer same or marginally better specs than the Suex Xjoy - does it?

    The real world field testing done in Tahoe on the Suex range shows that the claimed performance figures don't come close to actual. I know nothing about the Aquaprop.

    If my budget was around 1200 I'd be looking for a used good one over this sort of thing. Feck, Gavin's are changing hands for a few hundred quid these days, or one of the old SS range, old Echo / Frisco models from DX. I've seen Sierras go for less than grand. I'd be patient and get something good rather than spend a lot of money on something that's not so good.

    Rob,

    You've said this before, but you were wrong then and you still are. The results for the 2 Halcyon units (the only Suex built units tested by Tahoe) are about right for their advertised specs.

    None of the current range of Suex units have been to Tahoe because there are a number of things about the testing that Suex don't agree with.

    Before Tahoe I remember claimed figures putting those scooters at 70mpm! I see that the few places still offering them (Halcyon don't seem to), have more realistic figures these days.

    If it's ever run again I think that it'd be to the benefit of the entire DPV scene if Suex participated. The tests cannot be frigged or cheated and the data is completely transparent with all data being shared with participants.
