The 650 is great, I've done a small costco trip with it. full rack of soda & some other stuff (OK I did have to fill the passenger seat with stuff & web it in place but most went inside)
I gather the 400 has a bit more space, but is basically in the same league. (have ridden one but not really traveled on it)

I totally agree. With a flat floor and decent cargo hook you can manage a pretty serious shopping trip. My Daelim S1 has a flat floor and reasonable underseat storage = good for shopping.

If your storage related to a road trip, then the Burgmans and Majesty would, I imagine, fit the bill.

+1. The 07+ 400 has the biggest trunk of all the scooters out there (that includes the 650) then when you add a top case you start asking yourself what cant you take home. The most I carried home under the seat alone was 60lbs of cat litter with another 20 in the top case, that's not too shabby.

Wow,

Another Daelim rider. I think that makes 2 of us on ADV. I believe your S1 and My S2 share everything but the engine.

My 2008 Majesty has a lot of space but I did find that I had to add a TopBox for some of the new adventure riding stuff I bought. But other wise it is pretty good, I have done some shopping with it, still trying to figure out how to store the golf clubs though. The fishing pole is easy in comparison.

Scooter storage

I have a 2003 Suzuki Burgman which has great storage. It also has a Givi rear trunk.
I bought it for my wife and it's too tall for her so it's for sale.

My SYM Joyride 200 evo is pretty huge for space, deep and uncluttered underseat storage coupled with a big flat floor makes for an awful load of stuff. It does 70mph too which isn't too shabby!

I take full advantage of my flat floor.

Burgman 650 Exec- Had 48 cans of Soft Drink (Soda) in two packs under the seat, but had to pack four of those cans in at the edges so that one carton's corner could be squashed down.

Able to carry a folder of X-Rays home (A3 size?) FLAT in there on another occasion.

Not to forget that larger items (such as a Vacuum Cleaner) in original carton can be bungied on top of back seat.

If you still need more capacity than the other Burgman, the 400, then I'd suggest that you search for a CargoBike .
CargoBike

CargoBike AS - When you want to load in more than two fullface helmets . . . i.e. loads such as two SUITCASES!


Now one can get a shopping trolley load in under the seat. (Initial production based on APRILIA Sportcity scooter)
It has a storage compartment of 150 liters in capacity, for loads of up to 80 kg

Whoa, that cargo bike looks nifty, talk about native storage. With a top case and panniers you could call it an RV....
