You can still get the Kinetic TFR, I've seen em as low as $599.99
It's off the Vespa design, which is solid enough, but has severe quality-control issues on the assembly line, so it requires an extended shakedown and break-in time, usually with several part replacements or re-orders during.
Once you get past that, however....it's a right solid little machine, and some vespa upgrade parts will it it, as will some others with a little modification.
For the price they ask, it's worth it even with the issues and hassles, all in all.
And if you wanna buy local ? try cycletrader online, and the classifieds, you can find a decent used one fairly cheap most times in either one.
Stay away from Ebay tho...most of them want 2-3 TIMES the Bluebook Value.
