Lexmoto Pegasus

What could be improved?

A taller screen

What is the economy like?

70 MPG

Any mods or upgrades?

No mods yet.

How is the engine?

The engine is very smooth.

How does it handle?

Excellent handling and great at low speed.

What are the brakes like?

The brakes are very good, both rear and front.

Is it comfortable?

Yes, with a thick padded seat and great riding position.

How reliable have you found it?

I've only had one problem with a starter relay fault.

What's the servicing frequency and cost like?

I've only had the 300 mile service at £32, but it can vary from dealer to dealer.

To sum up

I used to have a Suzuki Burgman 400 before the Pegasus. I don't know if it was just mine, but it had vibrations pulling away and was nowhere near as smooth and comfortable as the Pegasus.

I have only owned the Pegasus for two months, but up to now I have been extremely happy with it.

One thing that I would like Lexmoto to do is make a taller screen for it. The Burgman kept the wind off my body where the Pegasus doesn't. This is my one and only complaint.

The Second Opinion

Lexmoto Pegasus

About me

I'm an older biker from the 70's and 80's but this suits me just fine for work travel. I needed a bigger scoot than an 125 cc for dual carriage way's and A roads.

What's good?

I have owned my Pegasus 300 since early October. I find it very comfortable to ride and think the TFT screen is brilliant. You change the colours to suit your mood etc.

I can get my lunch bag and full face helmet under the seat, which is held up with two gas struts, it has LED lights all round and ABS brakes.

How is the engine?

Very smooth uptake although I'm still running in so haven't stretched it out as yet.

What could be improved?

The Pegasus could do with a taller screen for sure, and I'm currently waiting for the manufacturer to get a rear top box rack sorted out.

To sum up

I think it's brilliant and competitively priced.
