People shifting in metal cans never saw the best solution for them to get home fast so Vespa decided to crayon them a possibility. But, still, they waited to be strongly affected on the financial side until opening their eyes (gas price subject and the famous translation to motorcycles that we’re witnessing in this period).
Still, I don’t understand how that is because, as we all know, time is money and those in the ad look like loosing a lot of time. The solution was there all the time, but the eyes were either closed or affixed on the watch.
Proof of the fact that an innovative mind can never fall asleep is held in the content of the video below. A Vespa on the dyno? I should have washed my face for a second time this morning! But yes, this video shows nothing more or less than a classic Vespa on which there has been placed a turbo. You read well, don’t look strange! And even stranger is the fact that this isn’t even the latest in what concerns the evolution of the Vespa.
Tested on the dyno, it sounds like it has nothing to do with the average two-stroke engine and at 42 HP and 36 Nm it really hasn’t. You would think that this kind of power can’t be properly valued on a scooter, but your opinion will change as soon as you see and hear it run at the end of the video. I hope that guy is wearing a helmet!
A passionate rider from Spain was inspired by Michael Schumacher’s translation from Formula1 to Moto GP and transformed its Vespa in what appears to be something that the famous pilot would ride to the local market every day for groceries.
The new Vespa S reflects the same sporty and dynamic characteristics of the previous generation. Design and technology have been carefully considered to emphasize the essence and spirit of Vespa; design is in keeping with the classic Vespa, whilst technology is up to date.
Well, you’ll have to take a touchscreen LCD, a WiFi modem, an XP-equipped PC, a Louis Vuitton seat and put all these in your Vespa like Quang Nguyen (a forward thinking Vespa-modder) did to his red GTS250.
Good luck and send me some photos after it’s done ;) > Full story
No, this is not a new model range from Vespa. It’s just a 2001 Vespa ET4 that has been modified to resemble a 1959 Cadillac.
I’ve seen this one of a kind Vespa on E-bay and I wanted to share this little Cadillac with you.
The owner says that he spent over 100 hours of fabrication to give this stylistic effect to his Vespa and around $2000 for all these modifications.
This bike has never been titled or registered, therefore winning buyer will be the first (...) > Full story
Fifty years ago, Piaggio shook up the scooter world with its Vespa GS (Gran Sport), at the time the fastest Vespa, the first to reach speeds of more than 60 mph and the first Vespa model with 10-inch wheels.
