    I have the opportunity to pick up an Aprilia Scarabeo 500cc pretty cheap from a relative. He doesn't ride it much and it just sits most of the time. He's not sure if it is a 2003 or 2004 (he's going to check title tonight). It has less than 8K miles on it. Any advice on what to look out for? Any weak points in this scooter? Interested in hearing any pros or cons.

    They look cool. Have fun with it. I would check the fuel lines. Enjoy the adventure.
