When you are cruising between 65-75mph, is there any vibration or harshness to the 400 that maybe the 650 doesn't have? It stands to reason that the 400 would be a better local city bike and...

The Reflex is a nice looking scoot. It looks like a forerunner to the Forza.

If Honda got the windshield venting right on the Reflex, it's hard to believe they got it wrong on the Forza.
