Help thor vegas hitch small gas bike and 2 mountain bikes

Hi we are looking at this Suzuki Burgman 200 and we need a hitch that is easy to get the bike on and maybe some dual hitch or something where my wife and I can bring 2 mountain bikes.

All help and suggestions are welcome?

I carry a Burgman 200 on the back of our Vegas 24.1 and love it. Lots of power for 2 up and great storage with an added top box. The ramp I bought was this one.

https://www.amazon.ca/Direct-Afterma...9905024&sr=8-1

It works well now, but I had to modify it. So I would recommend selecting a different one. This one I had to have a longer ramp made as the 38" they provide is way too short to run the 200 up onto. I had to add a cross bar in front to tie down to and I had to place piping over the bolts to prevent the rack from pulling inward and the bolts always coming loose.
Anyway, great scooter. Good luck.

Etrailer ses a very nicely designed and Engineered FRONT hitch receiver.
It bolts into existing frame holes, comes with hardware and I found it to be Flawless.

You will have to cut a small 3x3 hole in the front fascia. A front license plate mount cover it.
Its about a 30 minute install except for.utting the fascia hole.

Bikes will fit nicely in front of the radiator grill with very very little change to cooling.

260 pounds. That rack was speced at 500. If you are willing to do the mods on the rack it works well. But there is a cost to the mods, primarily having a longer ramp made. I made one the same length as the rack. 78" if I recall. The other mod I did beyond what I already said was to add an 1/8" plate that runs along the top of the bolts to make it easier to move the bike on and off. The places where the wheels finish up there is no plate if that makes sense.

check this out ...Electric!!

The new PCX e:HEV hybrid scooter, meanwhile, combines an AC electric motor (powered by a lithium battery) with a 125cc engine. It shares the same platform as the PCX160, with the motor generating 1.9hp and 4.3Nm. Combined with the 12.3hp and 12Nm of the 125cc mill, its total output ends up very similar to that of the PCX160s.

The Black Widow MCC600 is the one I've been looking at for my Suzuki 650cc (430pds)!
At this time, they go for $580 CDN + taxes // and about $250 in the US, so I will mostlikely wait for spring to buy in upstate New York.

Checked out the PCX ... nice little unit. Not sure if the horsepower is enough for a comfortable 2 up ride on the highway when needed. You'll want to be sure about that. The Burgman 200 is enough and can do 2 up at 60 mph if you need to (not that you want to).
