Hi all -
I'm new to the forum and am looking to purchase my first scooter soon. I am taking the MSF class this week and last week visited my local Vespa dealership. I was a bit surprised that the sales person really wanted to steer me towards buying a 50 and not the 150 I was looking at. The sales person asked me what type of riding I would be doing - mostly city and told me several times that she thought the 150 would be too much and that the 50 would be what I should get. Her two points against a 150 where price (which isn't really my top consideration) and too much power. She also mentioned that she commutes through city traffic on her 50 and is the same size as I am and does just fine. All my scooter friends suggest the 150 for the power I'll need on occasion to get out of tight spots.
Any other things I need to consider? I realize the 50 vs. 150 conversation is a very popular discussion, just not sure why the sales person kept pushing the 50 on me.....??
