The biggest problem associated with two-wheelers, especially scooters is that getting your vehicle on the main stand is a trouble. I haven't seen much of innovation on that front, but all of that hasn't really helped women riders get the scooter on the main stand.

I'm calling for all the ideas, suggestions and designs to improve the main-stand so that anyone can use it without much effort.

PS: It'd be awesome if some of you can come up with CAD / CAM models of the design 😀 . It'd really drive the discussion forward. Posted in: #Coffee Room

motorcycle main stands have a small extension of a stump at its base, on which we can press down our foot, while we gently prop the machine on the main stand.

I think even scootrettes like the scooty streak have that.

but now tell me exactly in what way do women have trouble, getting the vehicle on the main stand.

yes i also accept the idea of Kaustubh Katdare sir.many women and men found it difficult to raise the vehicle due to its heavy weight.All the manufactures increase the weight to give proper stability at high speeds in high end bikes.And note that everyone want to do it in a simple way and they try to use the side stand which may be a riskier one.May be I will come up with a model.thank you guys.
