I’m with you on the storage thing. I was originally considering a scooter too. The Italian scooters are overpriced in general and there aren’t a lot of dealers around here so you can’t shop around. Thing is the MP3 is a unique beast. If you want 3 wheels that’s pretty much the only option. The 250’s are less but still more than most 400-500cc 2 wheeler. The Yamaha Majesty and Suzuki Burgman 400 are both around $6K. I really like the look of the Morphous which is a little less because it’s a 250. On the other hand the Honda Silverwing and the Burgman 650 Executive are around the same price as the MP3. If you’re interested in used scooters I saw a 2003 or 2004 Aprilia Atlantic 500 at Moto Internationale up on 77th and Aurora. I think it was $3500 but I couldn’t swear to it.
