That is a beauty! I'm partial to these too and may get one one of these days.
Maybe you'll ride it down to a 4Winds event sometime?

I've got a Burgman 400 but the Vespa is sure appealing and I may still get one. yours is one fine looking machine. Have you done any cruising at about 75 mph? Is so how is it at that speed?

I haven't had it up to that speed yet as I mostly ride it around town. But it reaches 50-60 very easily and feels quite stable at that speed. But no highway jaunts yet. I only got about 300 miles or so on it before putting it away for the winter. Spring is right around the corner and I plan on doing some longer rides on it.

Oh I see you are from Ohio and I understand why you haven't been doing any winter riding. Here in South Louisiana we got up to 70 degrees so winter is usually not a problem riding unless it is raining and cold.

Both the Vespa GTS 250 and 350 will handle 70 all day long. 75 is pushing it a bit on some since the real top end without mods is usually around 80 but coming back from Galveston last week with Dr. Pulley sliders I was running an indicated 92 - real speed 85-86 for 40 miles give or take.

The ride is different from the Burgman 400 which is more of a tourer/cruiser than the flickable Vespa. Having owned both I prefer the Vespa but others prefer the Burgman.
