Hello all -- Wanting to upgrade my wife's '09 Honda Metropolitan 50 to a '19-'20 new 150 Primavera or Sprint, or other recommendations welcome. Metro has been sufficient, but she has always wanted the Vespa style/namesake, and now we both agree she needs more cc's to keep up. Hoped to avoid the china options, but open to opinions if it makes more sense considering the size we are seeking...
*Hoped budget to be under $6k, so guessing vespa options are limited to sprint & primavera...
**Any big changes between the 19 & 20s?
**Whats the most significant change from Primavera to Sprint?
**Are these 150 vespa options i'm considering worth it, over say ~$3500 genuine/kymco/lance/etc? Im ok paying the $1500 more for the Primavera for the better quality/styling, assuming the vespa is equal or better in most categories.
*We really only use locally, but maybe bigger/more power will lead to longer rides...
*We are both small people, but 2 on the metro is not safe or enjoyable, hope next option will allow for more comfortable and safe short 2 person rides.
Im sure more folks here ride/recommend the GTS, and would love to get her into that, but currently not the most practical for our uses and budget. A local dealer has a '19 150 primaveras (12" wheels, ABS) for $4,800. If no significant changes were made for '20 models, figured this was a better deal, atleast in my region (Chicago).
