One thing come to me very clear, when you first ride theAprilia Sport city cube (250 or 300) Its the stability. The chassis and the big weels make it easy to ride. Scooters are so fun!

No problem.

I sent you a small guide (email), and added another photo above
from your photobucket.

For around town I prefer my Super 8 150. I use my Sport City for longer rides, trips or for riding with guys on their 1000cc+ motorcycles. I did a 370 mile ride last weekend. Next smallest bike on the ride was an ST1300.

Did a 230 mile ride on it yesterday. Most of the bikes on the ride where over 1000cc.

Yeah, I've seen your reviews and ride reports.

I find the Super8 too stiff for our city streets and SC is better suited for
a passenger which I ride often with. Besides, I've worked for Kymco past
two years and owned 2 of them in the last 4 years, I'm ready to try something
else.

I wouldn't expect sportiness from a BIG scooter.

FWIW, after leaving Hyder, Alaska Tuesday June 2 I've put 4,000 sometimes very fast (rev limiter kicked in more times than I could count) on our 2008 Sports City in the 2014 Scooter Cannonball. Total maintenance required - adding 2lbs of air to my tires. Okay, I did pretty much wear out the rear Hindendau K66 tire on the rear but the tires performed flawlessly in the sleet and snow of Rabbit Ears Pass and the various stretches of dirt in Canada, Montana and Colorado. All in all the Sports City was an excellent choice going from sea level over mountain passes ranging from 6,500' to 11,500' and back to sea level again with rain, sleet, snow and high winds (Eastern Colorado & Kansas 50mph cross winds) and if I were to do it over again I'd take the Sports City again.

FWIW, Old as Dirt (aka Doug) had the fastest raw time in the cannonball. He also rode a Sports City but he's a much better rider in the twisties than I am. However, mine has a higher top end by about 4mph which helped me on the flats. We are still waiting for the last few days of raw scores to be posted but as of Day 7 I had the 8th fastest raw time despite my still being a bit skittish on dirt and twisties.

More proof of what a great scooter the Sport City is. Too bad they no longer sell it here. Europe still gets it as a 300.

It's outsold by the BV300 like 10:1 or 15:1, the price is too high (or rather
too close), so, yeah, you can rarely see them on the streets here (it's almost
$6k here).
