Vespa is brand name that made its debut during the second World War. At that time it was used to transport soldiers around the field. Later, in the 1970's, the Vespa became more popular because of the fuel shortage. Hollywood has even recognized this moped for its great look, impressive ride, and functionality.
With gas prices so high, the Vespa is becoming even more popular today. Mopeds and scooters are the summertime vehicle of choice for the person who has no need to drive the whole family around town. Although many people want a Vespa, not everyone can afford one because they definitely cost more than other brands. Vespa offers several different models of scooters including, but not limited to the Piaggio, GTS, and the Lambertta. All of the Vespa scooters can be ridden on the street, but some highways may be off limits. It would be wise to check with your town or state ordinances before sinking a large sum of money into one.
If a Vespa is what you have your heart set on, why not consider trying to find a used Vespa? Here are a few good places to begin your search:
- The local newspaper - you might find an ad there or consider placing your own ad stating that you are looking to purchase a used Vespa scooter.
- Several places online are sure to have some listed. Among these are Craig's List and eBay. Keep your eyes peeled for sellers near you because anyone who is a good distance away is going to charge you for the shipping and handling.
- A Vespa dealer seems an unlikely place to find a cheap Vespa, but nevertheless, you could hit the jackpot at one. Perhaps someone has recently traded in their older model for a newer one.
When searching for a discounted Vespa online, try several different search words. If you do not find anything listed under "Vespa," try searching under motorcycle, moped, and scooter. Each of these is likely to turn up quite a few results that may prove to be promising possibilities. You will also notice Honda and Yamaha scooters which will provide you with a larger variety to search through.
