well what do you know i was told by a dealer of just about all the scooters and the largest in my area that kymco has a"Roadside Assistance" program.
I emailed kymco usa and was told there is no such program and wanted to know the name of dealer who told me this....
I need to find out if this so called help is through dealership or what as I hate being lied to or given wrong information.
damn i was born in pompano and my family brother/mom still are in fort lauderdale we go down first 2 weeks of july, thanksgiving week and opening weekend for my phins.
only ended up here as i met my wife in soflo 30 some yrs ago and she convinced us to come up here back in 88.
we are like 1 1/2 yrs away from selling our condo and coming back as my mother is getting up there in years and she is in a nice building we would have.
any how i love the internet for all its info on anything. and amazing the people you meet.
doing any particular mods but between both scoots there seemed to be recurring mods based on my googling skills
on the kymco it would be the "non restricted boss and also a jet change" and with the aprilia sr50 it was putting it into developmental mode. so there in fact was where the "mods" comment came from.
reliabilty is probably overall very important as no one wants to be stranded.
actually 40mph is acceptable.
when you say 4t i assume you mean kymco's version which they stopped making? I do understand the 4 strokers have less maintenance and are quiter but everyone and everywhere i read complains about them just chugging along. could you maybe explain a little more? have no plans on putting $6k in to scooter.
BTW in my world (17 years as operations manager of mid sized chevy dealer) while Ferrari is great no doubt about it the owners of them also have dealers who work on them quite often. Hence my reliability question between the 2 scoots as its pretty much down to them. and I do believe in USA the only SR50's are the fuel injected, liquid cooled with the electronic dashboards. very confusing as checking out aprilia they have a lot of variations of the SR50. don't plan on riding either in rain but you know it easy to get caught in quick shower by shore.
I research a lot before buying as i don't mind spending "if" i get value for those dollars, but like to get it right the first time as we all know about "buyers remorse" cause everyone experiences along the way wether on a TV, car, scooter, iphone, etc. So I am trying like heck to get this right. I can turn a wrench and can follow directions/manuals.... although electrical is past my pay grade
Whatever I get it will be a 2012 model as i like new/latest.
