Marilyn has been super reliable, and that''s what I want in my next Vespa.
The GT 200 didnt come in red.
But my red 06 GTS250 has never had a fuel pump issue....19000+ miles. Other issues, but not a fuel pump issue and has never left me stranded even in 123 degrees in Death Valley, where my wife's GT200 locked-up with vapor lock. And again in Goldfield NV.
If you opt for a GT200, research removing the evaporaitive emissions device to prevent vapor-lock over on modernvespa.com.
Others have removed it from their fuel injected 250 and 300s but I don't believe its needed with an injected machine at least in my experience it hasnt been. YMMV
