The Sport City is obviously highly thought of here. Only problem is there are none available new in my state. If I could have anything I wanted, it would be the Vespa 300 Super. But that is a $10,000 scooter here, by the time the dealer gets through adding on all the "fees", and that is a bit over my limit. I have sat on one, and it does feel like a traditional scooter to me. So does the original Elite 250. To bad about the Buddy 170, but I've heard that a number of other places as well. Maybe if it were liquid cooled it wouldn't have that problem. The current trend seems to be more toward the maxi design, even for smaller scooters, like the PCX150.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
