I have been without my 2012 GTS 300 Super for a few years now. I am starting to get the itch to get another one.
I was all set to focus on a new GTS300 with the HPE. However, I'm just starting to learn a little about the shortened maintenance schedules of these and higher cost of maintenance. My old dealer closed down and the now the closest Vespa dealer is an hour and a half away in a not very convenient location. It's a real pain to have to it drop it off and get a ride home.
My question is it better to stick with a late model, low mileage, well taken care of 300 or just go all in and get the HPE? Those that have had both, I'd like to get your perspective.
It not so much the cost as it is the inconvenience of not having a local dealer.
