Which is the better deal?

Postby dkw12002 on Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:10 pm

I have a new 2009 Aprilia 125 with 175 miles on it and am thinking of trading for either a 2010 Honda 150i scooter with 650 miles on it that they are selling as new, or a new 2009 250 cc. Aprilia Sportcity Cube. The Aprilia dealer wants $2565 plus the trade-in and the Honda dealer wants $2700 plus the trade. I have a 50 cc. Aprilia and a 125 Vino so I decided I don't really need the second 125 and want something I can take on the interstate a little. Both the 150 Honda and the 250 Aprilia are ok for interstate travel. These are both very nice scooters. The Honda dealer is closer though and I would have to pay to have the Aprilia trucked 50 miles for any repairs. I suppose I would have to pay to truck a broken Honda to the Honda dealer too, but he's just across town. On the surface, it looks like the Aprilia deal is a little better and I would be getting a slightly faster bike, but the Honda is a very nice looking bike too. Any thoughts? Thanks

I'm a Honda fan , but if you have the freeway in mind, the 250 will be a better choice. :D

since i don't know what the top end speed of the 150i is, i can only add to this conversation by noting i had a sportcity 250 (not the cube - it's predecessor) and the top end on it was just a bit over 70.

Someone lighter in weight (i'm 220) could coax a bit more out of it.
