I've never ridden this scooter (nor any Vespa) but I can't help but notice it's pricetag. According to my 2010 Guidebook this scoot listed for $6899 which I find remarkable
. That makes this Vespa 250 more expensive than the Yamaha Majesty, Suzuki Burgman 400, Aprilia Scarabeo 500, Kymco Xciting 500, and Piaggio BV Tourer 500. In fact, the Vespa GTV 250 is even more expensive than Vespa's own
GTS 300 which obviously has a bigger engine, and isn't exactly cheap. If I had 5-7 grand to spend on a new scooter I wouldn't even consider
a 250, regardless of the maker.
What gives with the GTV 250?
