Ha, no need to apologize to me. To be honest I never considered scooters myself. It was a new Ninja 250 I wanted but they were impossible to get last summer. The fact I live beside the scooter dealership had a lot to do with my decision. The thing was just sitting there. I could ride away with it that day or wait who knows how long for a Ninja.
I can’t really help you as I don’t know a whole lot about other sportbikes. I would say pay attention to the seating/handlebar positions. One of the sport bikes I part beside at work the handlebars are the same height as the seat. Great for the track but not great for seeing through city traffic or long rides I would think.
