Don't own one but several of the folks I ride with have owned Kymcos over the years. If you can get one for the price you mentioned you'd be getting a great deal. The folks with Xcitings I know are all 500s but they've been at least bullet proof as the Burgmans in the group. Several ride People 250s which I expect is the same engine as the two you mentioned again without issue except for one user created issue where the oil filter wasn't properly seated and tightened before the owner took off. Hint, scooters don't like running with no oil.
