First introduced in the 1940s, Vespa is a handy scooter for anyone who wants an alternative means of getting around. Manufactured by a company named Piaggio, this scooter has become an icon over the years. Everyone from Robert De Niro, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Henry Fonda have been seen riding a Vespa. What is a Vespa and why does it stand out in the crowd? Here are the top reasons.
The Vespa is unique in that it has a painted, pressed steel unibody. Incorporated into this body is a cowling which encloses the engine mechanism. This cowling also hides dirt and grease from the view of others. Additionally you will find each unit comes with a flat floorboard to protect your lower extremities as well as a front fairing that will block the wind. All features are part of one structural unit which is one of the reasons why Vespa was the first scooter to achieve success worldwide.
A Vespa is an environmentally friendly form of transportation. Sixty miles per gallon is what you can expect to get from your machine on average. If you are concerned about our Earth and our impact on it, a Vespa is the perfect choice for you.
What makes a Vespa special though is the fun and enjoyment it will provide for the rider. Imagine zipping through crowded streets with ease or taking a leisurely ride through the country with the wind whipping through your hair. A Vespa is the perfect machine to get away from everyday life and lower your stress levels. Best of all, you can now add a side car and other accessories for when you want to take a special someone for a ride - you may find that you never want to come back.
