Many dealers sell them. I like the SHAD cases, GIVI are nice but expensive. The Coocase ones seem nice but are also more expensive but come with a remote lock. Many seem to buy them online but you don't know always what you are getting if you are buying on eBay. JC Whitney sells some for very cheap but I find most of the JCW ones very ugly. You may need to find a BMW or other touring bike dealer.

SHAD manufactured many of the cases for BMW. Here is the list from the SHAD site of the cases they made for BMW and Yamaha.

Great looking scoot, congrats. I love my Kymco, and the size scooter you chose is great - they are just like a motorized bicycle which makes them insane amounts of fun to ride. Check out the JC Whitney top box - had one on my Transalp and it was as tough and durable as they come, toured all over the place with that top box and it never let me down - very inexpensive and easy to install. Highly recommended.

I'm thinking about getting this trunk...

Would this one be too big...

ah man those are nice and match your scoot nicely.

too big? doubt it. maybe you can find some pics around the net of People 150's with big cases? because of the large wheels the scooter looks fairly substantial. i don't think a large case would look bad at all!

check out the pics here. scooter is exactly like yours

windshield looks nice, too. if you ever decide to get one

I would get the 33. I have a smaller case and it holds a FF helmet, and gloves and that's about it.

I got a new leftover 2009 People 150 too. Nice scooter!! I have it at our place on the Big Island of Hawaii and we'll be moving there eventually. I rode it for about 175 kilometers before we had to come back, so I pulled the battery and plugged in a battery tender and used Sabil in the gas. First tank looks like about 75 mpg. It's not going to be as fast as my wife's SYM HD200. But there is no SYM dealer on the island.There is a Kymco dealer.

I got in a bunch of riding yesterday and some more today. That little Kymco 150 is the sweetest riding scooter I have been on. Starts right up, idles perfect. The suspension is very good, very smooth ride. Its got plenty of power. I know it needs breaking in but it will hit 55 no problem at all. I really like this scooter.

I know what you mean about a small floor board. My 9s fit well but people with much bigger feet would have trouble.

I considered getting a People 150 but ended up on a Super 8. My size 12 feet were one of the factors on going with the Super 8. Had I gone with the people 150 I would have chosen the same color as yours. Your pics are giving me second thoughts, you have a real nice looking scooter.

Nice! I wish it were that sunny around here lately, but since we got spring weather for most of Jan and Feb, I have no room to complain.

I don`t think the 33 will be too big. And since you don`t have much room under the seat, you`ll probably make use of as much extra cargo space as you can get. If you DO want to keep it smaller, act quick and go for the 28l Coocase on closeout at Twisted Throttle for $75. I bought one of the $50 boxes (also 28l) just before they disappeared and it`s top notch.
