Gilera runner 50. Old or new model? Why?

Been thinking of buying a Gilera Runner 50 because Ive heard it might be the most stable scooter in the 50cc class.

BUT

Are there any differences between the old Runner and the new model (about 2006-->) when thinking of driveability and stability.

Does the new and the old model share the same frame? How about brakes and shocks?

I like the looks of the newer version but the older one has the larger fuel tank which is a great plus.

I do own an Aprilia SR50R 2008 since new and its good for a 50cc. Brakes are good and it is spaceous but the rear shock absorber could be better. It bounces on fast corners.

If someone has ridden also SR. I would love some comparison. And of course all other opinions are welcome.

Maybe you will get no answers.
I don't think that here is someone who has much experience with those scooters

Im sorry. I thought this forum was about gileras but Im guessing its about more of the older, retro models.

Could someone suggest another forum that would have a section for Runners? European with english spoken section would be nice and of course most popular.
