http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcd/4001125857.html Our Vespa dealer in Marietta Ga. is advertising new 2009 BV500s (it looks like they have/had 3) for $3499. If you were looking for a big scooter cheap these would be a deal. That's about the same price as a SYM HD 200. Not my cup of tea, but thought if you lived in the southeast you might want to know. They imply they just got these from the warehouse, so could be these start turning up at other Vespa/Piaggio dealers around the country as well. I get that folks are going to say the BV350 is a better scooter, but for $2k less these might be just the ticket for guys looking for a deal..
