hi guys, my first time posting here.
i am a sports bike rider, a 600cc, but before all of this i have always wanted a scooter. i still want one now.
i am looking for at least a 200cc scooter that looks like a vespa, stella, lambretta, something of that sort. i do not know much about scooters but can anyone help list what would be a good scooter with those retro looks?
are there any around 2k-3k?

If it goes over 60 and you want vintage, it's probably going to have to be a 200cc.

If you want retro styling and want to hit 60, you've got a few options in the 150cc range. 70mph, and you're going to have to have at least a 200.

For Vespas, the newer 150cc bikes are going to be the ET4, LX 150, or S 150. Then you got your GT (200), GTS (250 or 300), GTS Super (very rare 250, or standard 300), or GTV (250 or 300).

You may be able to find a used 150 in your price range, though it will be on the higher end. I doubt you could find anything larger (that's modern) for that kind of money, unless it needed a lot of work. Certainly none of the 300cc ones, as they haven't been out very long.

The "Not So Modern" section of the forum can give you more info on vintage bikes.

P200 All the way. Under 3k, will cruise around 60s, parts and accessories are easy to come by.
