Every year I come back from holidaying in Asia, with a promise to buy a scooter.
Well this year I'm actually going to do it.
I been looking around for a few weeks now, and although I still don't know what I want, I know what I DON't want(small 50cc Buzzbox).
I went down to the my local scooter shop in Fremantle. There are a lot of nice scooters there, in fact too many to chose from.
I was very interested in the Scarabeo 200ie, Brand New for about $5500 ride away. But the salesman pointed me in the direction of an Aprillia Sportcity 250. He said it was his favourite bike(can I trust a scooter salesman :D ). Anyways, it only had 3000km on the clock, and it also was $5500. I guess the question is, should I even consider a used scooter??? Especially considering the Sportcity 250 is no longer imported into Australia??
I've heard a lot of complaints from people regarding the availability of spare parts for Aprillias, should this be a factor when considering a used scooter??
For $5500 I can get a Scarabeo 200ie with a 2 year warranty. For the same money I can get a used Sportcity 250 with no warranty. Is the Sportcity 250 a much better scooter to warrant taking such a risk??
Any opinions are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
