Question Stella ?

Hey,
Anyone know the most recent news regarding Stella production? I had heard that they were not making the Stella but Genuine was still making the other brands. I would like to get one but don't know if they will be selling any more new ones. If not, would it just be better to get a vintage Vespa? Not really interested in the new Vespa's since they are now just over priced POS with a name. The fit an finish on the GTS250 is about as bad as a Kymco or other econobrand. And that is for a $5000 scooter! Anyway, sorry for the rant. I still have to sell my CRF230F D/S before I drop any cash on a scooter so I have time to wait.

Cheers

1) No.
2) Yes.
3) I wouldn't buy a vintage bike for a daily rider
4) I agree
5) Have you listed it in the Flea Market?


(Seriously, there are plenty of parts for Stella's, and will be for 50 years. Go buy one)

Stella GONE

Stella is definately history. I know, I USED to sell them. The other Genuine products are very good quality and Genuine stands by their products. I've been very happy with Genuine and their bikes from a dealer perspective as well as consumer. I drive a Stella daily.

If you can find a used one, buy it, you will have no regrets.

You mean a manual tranny?

Right now, I guess Bajaj and the Vespa PX-150. If you are buying new...

I mean not a cvt. I thought Bajaj had stopped production as of Jan last year. It would be nice for someone to put the klx110 motor trans in a step through and sell it in the US.

ps I was never a stella fan, I don't really like 2 strokes for the street they are for racing.
