No CVT, no plastic, and some rumble and oil and grit.

It had an electrical buzz to it. The engine sounded like a jet muffled by fans. It had a pathetic little rev to it. It smelled like a vacuum cleaner.

I hit 50 daily and only one section of road that seems to be a huge wind tunnel on certain days gives me any trouble. A handful of times it's felt squirrely, but nothing alarming.

I don't think the Ural is an option. I don't need a sidecar, that's for sure, and there doesn't seem to be a good reason to get the Solo one over anything else, like the Royal Enfield. No dealer...

You're not educating, you're whining and bothering and irritating at this point. Your posts serve no purpose other than trying to make me regret my purchase, which is not going to happen.

LML produced the old P series under license of Piaggio. With a few small upgrades, you're essentially buying a brand new 30 year old Vespa.
