    I own a Kymco Agility 125 and love it. Dream of buying a People 300 in the spring...
    Good luck with your choice, and again, I am a big believer in Kymco...
    Thanks again

    i am concerned about the Agility because the ad misrepresents it and tells straight out non-truths. it also doesn't mention mileage

    if this person is so involved with the scooter why does he mention no oil to mix as it has a separate "tank?" its a four stroke so it doesn't have any of it

    the rear spring is RED, not orange. it may have turned orange from weathering, but mine is still red after three years. i do keep it covered and don't rain ride, but still. that spring was never orange until it turned orange

    no insurance needed? on a 125cc? not in my state (cali) and i believe most others. i need full motorcycle insurance

    the scooter retails for $1899, not $2699. it did, but that was in 2005 / 2006. and the 2009 model here went for $1999

    does not mention mileage

    imo its not $1000 worth of scooter. more like....$650, tops. i just don't trust it and if i were buying i'd look for another. could be another Agility, but not this one

    imho

    Agreed.

    Yeah, I assumed that the Kymco was an injected 2 stroke from the ad. He either doesn't know what he is talking about or he is just another shyster and it is about 50-60 miles from me and that is too far to haul the trailer for a scoot from a shady ad.

    I have decided not to pursue either of these particular scoots. I am not in a rush and my budget is $1000 so I am fairly confident that I will find one soon. Thanks for the reasoned replies.

    BTW, insurance is not required on two wheeled vehicles in Florida unless it's financed and then the bank obviously requires it.

    I appreciate all the info. Plan now is to put the Strom up for sale shortly after Christmas and pursue a scooter.

    A minor correction on insurance requirements in Florida. You are not required to have insurance but must wear a helmet if you don't. Buy a lousy 10,000 dollar policy and you can ride without a helmet legally.

    Another example of why we are known as floriduh.
