    Black, red or white.. those are the only options. Piaggio is offering an extra 2 years on the warranty if purchased by tomorrow...

    I was going to get a white one, but right now I'm thinking of waiting. I have too many bikes and due to family obligations, I'm not riding as much as I'd like and as as much as I used to.. I think I will keep one big touring bike and get a Vespa for around town.

    I've already bought 2 bikes this year.. and I can't believe I'm going to restrain myself from buying a third.

    Time to thin out the heard..

    On another note, I'm surprised they are not offering ABS as an option on the higher end Vespas. I think the GTS250 has available ABS in Europe.

    Hey GB... that's 'cause you're living the Toronto life man. I moved out here to the Jamaica of the north 4 years ago. Trust me... there's way more than an hour's difference between our clocks. Oh yeah and never ending amounts of twisty pavement with an ocean view. Let me know when I'm buying you a local barley pop and the best Lobster roll on the planet. :D

    GB,

    I spent the entire weekend up at Lake Tahoe swimming in a storm of Vepas and the 250 and 300's are nice little machines.

    The 250's and 300's sure a fun little rides ad they did pretty good two-up climbing the passes there. I am going to guess there were 20 (or more) of the big boy Vespa's there

    There were several Big Ruckus's there as well as a pretty blue T-Max, and several Kymcos including 3 People 250 (both S and vintage) and an Xciting 500. Several Majaesty's and Burgies (in both sizes) and one guy with a 1961 Tourist. We had Gilera scooter and couple no-name china scoots and one Lance that was SLOOOOOW

    The white has a nice classic look and it is easier to fix up when you get the nicks and dings the metal bodies tend to collect over time.

    The red is a nice color too. It just looks fast. I think the black is cool looking but I think it shows wear and other imperfections more than the other colors. You also become invisible at night and that is not always a goo thing on a scooter in traffic.

    Just that observations of someone who spent hours looking at Vespas over this weekend and all of their sexy flowing lines.
