Considering this one too.

The Kymco is not a two stroke, but it is made in China, and the Elite is a weird little bike with expensive parts, poor handling and very little storage space. Unless it has mechanical issues, and depending on the mileage (which is always an issue for me if they leave it out of the ad), you probably won't go wrong with the Kymco.
