Well, I could not let this Thread sit empty w/o being the first to post.
I have an Aprilia SportCity 250ie..  a 2007,  before they changed the front end to the "Cube" or whatever. I  really think they screwed up the look IMHO.. What is your favorite Aprilia model?

i had a sportcity 250 i bought new in 07 and rode it till last year when i traded it in for the majesty i have now.

The SC was rock solid all the time i owned it. never so much as a cough.

the only complaints i had with it were 1) the skimpy storage, and 2) no sidestand.

i cured the storage issue with a soft side top "box." tried to find a sidestand for it, but no joy - even sent an e-mail to a european distributor, but didn't even get an answer.

some have complained about getting parts because the dealerships don't stock much, but that wasn't an issue since the bike never needed anything beyond oil filters. since the oil filter it uses is also used by others in the piaggio line that wasn't a problem.

I'm torn between two older Aprilia scoots.

The old design Scarabeo 500, especially the ones with side hard luggage.


or the Mojito 150

Hi Ronnath! I remember following many of your post on the AF1 forum. Funny I also added a Majesty to my stable, and latley have been lusting for the TMax.
I agree about the skimpy storage, some sort of topcase is a must!
Sweet choices Dan!!

I think the Mojito looks like a scooter Harley should have built.

I guess I had never noticed the Mojito looks like a Harley after being run through the hot cycle in the washer.
