300. It's a much newer scooter with little miles. The top case and small wind screen can be bought cheaply. Good luck

fuel consumption between 250 and 300 is not mini... autonomy also, I ran 80km per day and going to fuel station is time waste.

I would go for the newer scooter.

Note that both the 250 and the 300 have 9.2 litre tanks and likely get comparable mileage. It all depends on how you ride and whether you like to ride wide open throttle. Really, is there any other way? Laughing emoticon

A 300 for EUR3,000? Bite their arm off, and grab it before they change their minds!

The 250 is just as much fun out on the open road - but for city use the 300's immediate torque makes it far more fun.

If you can afford it go for the 300, less mileage, newer scooter, more torque (better acceleration) and similar top speed.
Good price (nearly a bargain) for a near new 300
I also prefer the analogue dash of the 300
Top case and screen are not that expensive if you go for non Vespa brands
