There’s a new kid in town
This turned up at the foothill villa a few weeks ago.
While it looks like an Aprilia Mojito, it is in fact one of the many Chinese knockoffs of that retro scooter. I don’t know for sure why there are so many such knockoffs, but I’m going to guess the genuine article’s bodywork is sourced in China. (If you know, leave a comment below)
I know it’s a 150 because it wears a typical Chinese scooter model number: MC-150-something-something. I could find no model name or emblem, but the scoot is brand-new and shiny. No scratches, yet. I don’t know which of my neighbors owns it, at least not yet.
Oh, and it gets ridden daily. Well, the weather has been sunny and warm lately.
