Vespa…feeling the waters…?
Question by The ~Muffin~ Man: Vespa…feeling the waters…?
I’ve been thinking about getting a Vespa for a while now. I don’t want a big motorcycle, I just want something simple that gets me from Point A to Point B while not burning a ton of gas.
The route I would probably take would be some surface streets (30-40 mph limit) and some highway driving (55-65 mph limit). Do you think a Vespa is “appropriate” for this kind of driving speeds? I am sure I’ll hear all kinds of stuff about safety, what are people’s opinions on this?
I’ve read through all their selections on their websites, so I know their specs. I am more interested in hearing people’s stories and experiences with their Vespas.
Thanks in advance.

I won’t lecture you about what you apparently don’t want to hear but I will tell you anyway.
Riding a two wheeler is all about visability…being able to be seen. An underpowered Vespa on a hiway with 65MPH traffic is not only unwise but downright stupid. It is woefully too underpowered and fragile for that environment.
Just consider where scooters are ridden…..urban areas of Italy, France, etc. Rural unpaved roads in the third world. READ THAT slow traffic. NOT because they CAN’T go fast just that they are not safe.
So yes you can but its really built for under 40mph driving conditions…more like 25-35 REALLY…the fact it might go 60 doesn’t mean it should!
Finally 80% of all “motorcycle accidents” happen to new riders in their first 6 months.
