I know nothing about your scoot, but it blows my mind that there are scooters nearly as expensive as motorcycles out there.
I was in the market for a new car, but after some number crunching, ended up deciding a scooter for my daily commute would be a better idea. So I went to a local dealer and found a "new" 2009 Aprilia Sport City 125, with 1 mile on it, for essentially half off, so i pulled the trigger and bought it. I wanted a yamaha zuma 125, but out the door this saved me close to $2500-$3000, and I can appreciate the novelty of it being an Aprilia.
Aside from the basic info on the Aprilia website I don't know much about it, and there isn't much available online.
Does anyone have any info on these, if theres any sort of aftermarket, etc?
Go to apriliaforum.com and start nosing around there. All kinds of info about all Aprilia motorcycles and scooters. Also, the forum sponsor/owner is AF1 Racing...without a doubt the leading Aprilia source in the US.
I've ordered a ton of parts for my Dorsoduro through AF1, and I'm buying a Moto Guzzi through them as well. Great people to deal with.
And I'll add this too...sweet looking scooter! I've had two scooters in the past, and yours looks great!

I haven't had anything go wrong on my Dorsoduro (yet). But I also haven't had it for very long. It's kind of an apples-to-oranges comparison...125cc single-cylinder air-cooled CVT scooter to a 750 v-twin water-cooled 6-speed motorcycle. Probably very few if any parts are shared between the two.
I have heard of sensors failing on Apes, and digital dashes going temporarily blank if they get wet, and there's someone here on the boards that had an engine failure. But again, that's all for the Dorsoduro/Shiver (mechanically & electrically almost identical).
I'd ride it, keep it maintained, and have fun with it. And prowl around the AF1 scooter forums...that'll probably be your best source for info on it.
All this scooter talk has me wanting one again!
