Having "worn out the web", I'm down to consideration(it's a chronic disease-this 2 wheel thing!) of : Used Vespa 250/300 -250's are usually cheaper/older yr model-lots of them for sale too ,new BV350-most power,etc but none used out there so more $,mostly new Kymco People 300i & SYM 300i. I have not had a chance yet to ride any of these. The BV350 is the most expensive as even after various searches they just are not available used. The Vespa is cheaper than all of them as many out there for sale used & often with under a 1,000 miles. Interesting that most of the used Asian scoots have more miles on them. The Kymco & SYM pop up used but mostly new and similar power to the Vespa but obviously less $$$ new. All these machines are "stuck" on 22hp or buy a new BV with 32hp? (I'm no hp freak either-the vintage Honda MC 500-550's had the better ride than the more sought after 750's.) I like the Vespa styling & the new w/warranty appeal of the Taiwan scoots & the BV specs are appealing. I prefer(at this point) the larger wheels of the non Vespa choices. I may regret not going for a 400 Burgman what with the touring ability but cannot come to like the jet ski styling. Simply trying to pull that "one more thing" from you experienced scoot riders out there.
