2011 Vespa PX 125, 150 for Europe



As predicted Last year, Vespa / Piaggio is dusting off the old Vespa PX 125 and 150, which it will make available in Europe in the first quarter of 2011 with some minor cosmetic changes, handle bar grip mounted manual transmission, kick start and a catalyzed 2-stroke engine that apparently meets Euro3 specs.

Vespa fans In Europe rejoice. At this time there are no plans for the U.S., probably due to emissions laws.

If they made it small enough I'd keep it as a spare in my saddle bags.

Oh so they are still not environmentally friendly?
Too bad.

Though not a biker, I sure as hell would like to have one. It was always my dream. But I will never have one. My wife's resistance will be one thousand percent.

I've got to agree, why the hell doesn't the US push fun, small, practical equipment like this? You could move it up to a 250, probably easy enough, or even keep it at 150 - there is a scooter demand here, and one with, looks, storage and a bit of zip would really be welcome. The four strokes don't have a lot of mustard when compared to the 2-strokes that have been banned for a few years already.

We've got small ninjas and rebels on the road here, why not something like this? Makes sense to me...

My daughter has been convincing me to buy this motorcycle for her when she saw that it was taken back into production due to high demand. Last year, I bought this and gave it to her as a birthday gift. She really likes the style of this motorcycle, and it is so easy to drive around our town.
