Just don't know that much about them.
You're right on your statement "150's may be a little taxed". I had a Stella 150 with a Cozy sidecar. It was a hoot for my dog and grandchildren, however, quite underpowered. In my opinion, at least 250cc minimum to attach a sidecar. Sidecar rigs are a ton of fun, particularly for grocery shopping, dogs and grandchildren.
