Riding Precautions

Running-in Period

During the first 500 km (300 miles) of running, follow these guidelines to ensure your scooter's future reliability and performance.


Observe the following guidelines:

Combi Brake

Your scooter is equipped with a brake system that distributes the braking force between the front and rear brakes.

The distribution of the braking force applied to the front and rear brakes when operating the front brake lever only and when operating the rear brake lever only is different.

For full braking effectiveness, operate both the front and rear brakes together.

Combined ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) (NSS300A only)

This model is also equipped with an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) designed to help prevent the brakes from locking up during hard braking.

Always use the recommended tyres to ensure correct ABS operation.

Wet or Rainy Conditions

Road surfaces are slippery when wet, and wet brakes further reduce braking efficiency.

Exercise extra caution when braking in wet conditions.

If the brakes get wet, apply the brakes while riding at low speed to help them dry.

Park on a firm, level surface. If you must park on a slight incline or loose surface, park so that the scooter cannot move or fall over. Make sure that high-temperature parts cannot come into contact with flammable materials. Do not touch the engine, muffler, brakes and other high-temperature parts until they cool down.
