All you need is a Philips and whatever socket for the drain.
Arguably also a hassle for routine oil fill and top-off...and definitely the road less travelled design-wise.

Chinese scooters don't need all three piston rings intact.

It's only two screws. What's easier?

Just saying, in the moto world (even the Vespa this thread started about) adding oil typically requires no tools.

Just illustrates that every machine has its odd quirks...needing to remove even two screws to get to the oil filler is a quirk. (have you ever seen another car/motorcycle that doesnt have an easy to access, finger operated oil cap?)

I suppose that's true.

At least with the Vino 125 you don't need a funnel!
