Don't get me wrong, I love Frankie. She's fun and exciting to ride and I love her look. However...
1) I don't feel like getting a motorcycle license or whatever it's called. Endorsement?
2) I think it would be more cost effective and convenient for me to own a 50/49cc scooter instead that I can park on sidewalks.
3) I primarily wanted to use a scooter to drive to work and the gym. All are within about a 5 mile radius of me. I don't need tons of vroom vroom.
4) When the assholes stole her, they cut off my front basket. Now I have NO STORAGE and am uninterested in replacing the front rack and basket due to reasons #1-3.
That said, I'd love to hear from the rest of you what 50cc scoots you'd recommend. I am... shallow... so I want something "cute." I really do love the retro look. I also want native storage and low maintenance since I am NOT HANDY AT ALL.
So far, I've considered the Kymco People (I like that it has the larger wheels like the Symba), Honda Metro (but I hear that it's a little sluggish), and Lance Havana Classic 50 (love that it is actually a SYM).
