|Jace Bror||I think the reason in payload capacity might be because of the tires used in those other countries. cuz the manual for my 2000 when you read about the tires it says we get the crap that we get. but europa gets the Metzeler ME880 as the stock tire. now if that is true the Metzeler has a higher load capacity.|

As for the GVWR of #918 for the scoot and load, or the max weight carried allowed, I think some of you are splitting hairs. I see numbers quoted from #388- #406. There is not a magical cut-off line where the weight goes from safe to deadly.
I made one 30 mile trip with a passenger, where our combined weight was over #500 and the gross weight would have been in excess of #1040. Was it a smart thing to do? No, probably not. It was not comfortable for either one of us, and I will not do it again. However the suspension did not bottom out under us, the tires didn`t blow either. I was more cautious on that ride, with the over weight load, but did not feel in any particular danger. Acceleration was slower, but I had no trouble maintaining 65 mph on the highway. We did however draw some incredulous looks from folks in town, seeing two people, that large, on a 750.
So IMHO if you say that the maximum load on the vn750 is #400 give or take #20, you`re in the neighborhood, and the neighborhood is close enough.
