    Spring is on it's way. You'll have plenty of chances to ride it soon. Make sure to take some pics and give us a report.

    The only downside I found is that they can't fit the average full face under the seat. But they have a really nice look that's neither Vespa-Italinate nor Honda-modern.

    it's an awesome scooter, congrats. have you read the justgottascoot review? nothing but good things to say, really

    i think its a really nice looking scoot, too. i was considering it myself, but only one problem: my size 13 / 14 's do not fit on the floorboard! by any means. the one fatal flaw of this scoot. at least for folks who have big(ger) feet. otherwise, i may have pulled the trigger.

    Howdy,

    Your People 150 should be virtually bulletproof, hexnut. Kymco scoots enjoy a very good reputation for reliability. As soon as you have fair weather, we'd like a detailed report. Your new scoot will liven up commuting and errand-running. Ride safe!

    I don't think most bike allow you put your FF helmet under the seat. It's advertised but realistically the number of scoots that can accomodate a FF or modular is about 3 models... 1) Burgman..2)?

    Add a tail trunk and you'll be able to store that helmet.

    Beautiful scoot! I love the color! Yes, it should be a great scooter overall.

    The price is great for it's class as well. The only things are floorboard space as mentioned is tight, and air cooling vs. water cooling. But not really a big deal, it makes it simpler.

    But I love it! When I wasn't sure if my Elite 150 was gonna make it [money-wise], I was looking into a People 150 myself, but I decided a $450 engine in great condition was cheaper than a $2,800 scooter, and I did want to save some money for my next class bike.

    But anyways, it looks great! Can't wait to hear about it when the whether gets better!

    Very nice! Those large wheels should take rough spots in the road with ease.

    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.

    BMW

    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.

    ah man those are nice and match your scoot nicely. :clap

    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

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