Was curious, there is a used 2006 GTS250 with 22k miles near me. Seller asking for $1825. Was wondering if this scoot still has life in it? They have maintenance records. Thanks!

Hello yeah!
I clicked over 40k miles a couple weeks ago on my 07.
Normal wear and tear is all.

If it's been well-maintained, absolutely. Should run easily over two or three times that far.

You should be interested in the age of the tires and rubber bits, but that shouldn't be a game-changer.

I seen slightly newer 2008 2009 Vespa 250 models going for around $2000 with less miles for sale on the online marketplaces. I would offer like $1500 For the one you mentioned.

Welcome to the site.

Yes, as the others intumate, a 250 or a 300 GTS will easily cover up to 100,000 miles if the bike is maintained correctly and a quality motorcycle oil is used. I've serviced both the 250 and 300 with 80,000+ miles on the clock and they both ran fine. Neither had needed any additional engine work other than normal consumable items. I include in that a variator & clutch, brake discs etc.

Agree. But if there's no service records, walk away.

Same engine as our Sports City and what killed it was Harvey flooding with over 85,000 miles on it. As long as people RT KY maintained there is lots of miles left in it
