The search button doesn't work for me on any of my browsers, so I am compelled to make a new thread.
I have my eye on a brand new 2009 Pliaggio Fly 150 which can be had at a local dealership for $2300 with a free $300 helmet special that Pliaggio has going on until the end of April. This is of course before any fees and such, but it looks like I can walk out at $3,000, and that's before haggling. I'd like it better if the price were closer to $2500, but I think I could possibly manage that.
The only thing I've seen cheaper is the so-called Chinese "crap" like the Fly Scooters Il Bello
At the moment, I do not feel comfortable buying this scooter - I want a quality product and I have found in the past that buying cheap means buying twice.
However, I am open to any suggestions. What I really want is:
1) 70mpg +
2) Storage space for at least a full face helmet, mounting places for more.
3) Freeway capable
, but 98% of the time I will be on urban streets so I don't need a larger engine.
4) Less than $3000 MSRP, but I would really like to walk away only $2500 lighter if I can.
Is there any other scooter I should look at?
Also, is it bad on your credit score to negotiate financing and then pay it off completely on your first payment? I am wondering if I should use this opportunity to build some loan credit.
