Not looking for a cross country scooter, just something with limited freeway capability. The maxis are more than I can handle, I'd rather have a 750cc size motorcycle for long distance. Much less awkward feeling for me.
aprillia has a surplus of the 2009 models that have been sitting in wearhouses. Some are in better condition then others, mine was basically flawless but I have seen some in show rooms with exterior body parts not on well and even rust on some screws. I think its a valid concern but they are selling them pretty cheap to be fair.
