It goes without saying that I will follow up with personal interest and report back at my first sighting of the SH 150.
No Burger 200 for me, as I was just reminiscing days of old. Too big for my needs. When you trawl through Gumtree you can appreciate the number of ratty scooters that make their way back to the market. It makes you wonder to what degree the importers/wholesalers of scooters are complicit in significantly declining sales over the last years; poor quality, poorly supported product or just choices that do not reflect our market, over time. I feel that there is some accountability here.
Unless you intend to keep a unit until it drops, then you need quality and features if you want any chance of getting out of it with $$$s in your pocket. It matters less if you only pay say $3k for a Dio. After 3-4 years of enjoyable, reliable scootering (assumes), then it really dosen't owe you anything. But when you start spending $6k +, on a scooter, then this equation changes.
One of the best value scooters (resale considered) will probably prove to be the last of the Vespa GTS FL 250s. The only minus is lack of ABS. If you consider their current models pricing, all things considered, then a good offering.
Failure of the SH to impress, then I will wait for the GTS 150 iGET ABS. It will stretch on the very odd occasion I want to venture a bit further. And I am comfortable I will be able to sell it, when the times comes, and whip out the mighty Dio again. I doubt if you will get any change from $8k for the GTS 150 iget.
