I would recommend you to search up abit more on other forums as those regulars like me might not have all the details about maintenance and spare parts available in Singapore..

Yamaha I know you need to order most of the stuff..

PGO might not have any dealer in Singapore.. When I googled, only Asphoon.. 

 

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

 

Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well. :)

Both these machines are quite rare. 
I've spoke to a dealer, the Tricity is usually favored by seniors for the superior stability. Having seen the bike in person I find it's very small and the front suspension is very complicated, it doesn't have the same storage capacity of a conventional scooter. I expect it to be slower than 2 wheeler due to added drag and weight of the suspension system and 3rd wheel. 

If you can somehow find a Tricity 155 version that might be better if your routine involves regular highway trips. (It exists but not sure if available in Singapore)

PGO ME150 scooter I've encountered rarely but seen around town in delivery use, because this design has one front wheel and 2 back wheels, it looks very unstable especially during high speed cornering. You should be aware that this trike configuration has unusual steering characteristics (steer like a car at low speeds, at high speeds you risk a wheel going up in the air and then it becomes 2 wheeler counter-steer)

The Tricity simulates a normal motorcycle handling with its leaning suspension.

The PGO ME150 is meant for low speed mobility and oversized delivery cargo. Having rode behind one to observe, it looks really shaky and unstable due to the chassis bending and flexing a lot due to the wide wheelbase.

Hence need to carefully consider the pros and cons of each - what is the purpose of the bike? even before going into mechanical reliability (which I am confident Yamaha has better support being established brand in SG with wide dealer network).
