    Here's a few from test rides (I used to review bikes for a local newspaper):

    2010 Piaggio Beverly (BV) 300 when it came out:

    I aways liked the specs on those. A flat-torque-band Master engine in a "conventional" scooter style, with a decent 14L fuel tank and bigger wheels, but not much of a weight penalty. I spose the People GTi 300 will do everything the same, but just a bit better though?
    (since you've ridden both? :D)

    Those two are as close as it gets, even the performance is about equal.

    The People will get up to 60mph a bit faster (about a second), and
    Geopolis will accelerate faster from 80 to 95mph. People will get a
    few more MPG though.

    Wind protection is better on the Geopolis (probably the best stock windscreen
    on any bike I tried), and the chassis on Geopolis seems a bit stiffer for
    spirited riding.

    However, there were some reliability issues with the Geopolis/Satelis
    line (electronics), but I don't remember the specifics.

    They look stunning tho.

    CB the vespa is not mine, the Honda on the other hand IS mine. I will get a vespa or bigger scooter, just not now. A friend has show interest in buying my scooter but we will see.

    Today we went for a ride and here is a picture!

    I bought it in Iowa and am flying up this weekend to pick it up. Four days and counting down and I am starting to realise the purchase was real and i will be riding it next week.

    I have wanted a white P200E for a long time to replace the one I sold decades ago. This is the pre-mix and battery free magneto model, beautifully restored three years and 1200 miles ago...

    Thanks. You are very kind. This trip will be a lot shorter at 2,000 miles.

    I sent a few accessories and the seller kindly installed them!
    I plan to post on my blog as I ride home this week, and I have a thread on modern Vespa as well. I ll do a proper ride report on ADVrider when I get home, however it goes!
