Hi Skiwoods, The best part about the Swing is that they are made to last a long time. That is way I bought a 2009 Swing. The new GT looks good but there just is not enough change to make me run out and buy a new one. I am going to keep this one for at last 4 to 8 years then I may start looking for a new Scooter. If I bought another new scooter my wife would due me in. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.
