    60's advertising! Must be 25 innuendos in those few small paragraphs.

    ^^ She reminds me of Marilyn Monroe. And the (advertised) specs on that Honda 50 are quite astonishing, especially being over fifty years later - 50cc, 45 mph, 225 mpg!

    nothing like a FINE woman with no bumper stickers. Reminds me of the 80s.

    Yeah, I have a '77 Trail 90. 40 to 45 is normal. Most I've ever seen on a flat road was 53.
    That Honda 50 I would guess would be flying if it made 35.

    Could have been a copy from a transparency - easy to get those reversed (unintentionally). From a strictly design point of view, that image is best as seen here, rather than as shot: your eye enters an image from the upper left, scans the image in the general shape of the number "2", then exits out the right side of the image. If the photo was to be viewed as originally shot, you'd "enter" the image right into the young lady's back - much less appealing, even though most people don't know why. With her facing into the image from the right (reversed, and as seen), it tends to keep your eye in the image longer, as well.

    In a former profession (30 years) as a professional photographer, I was also an Internationally Affiliated Juror (and Master of Photography, Photographic Craftsman, and Certified Professional Photographer; all from the Professional Photographers of America) - able to judge professional photography competitions at the international level. No idea where the number is now, but at the time, there were fewer than 400 of us world wide that were Affiliated. Not saying any of that to pat myself on the back, since none of that pertains to one's ability to ride a scooter; just stating some reasoning.

    Of course, if that were the case (reversing it for the improved design and flow), it would have been smart to remove the "Vespa" on the front of the scoot. Reversing the image and knocking that "Vespa" off would take an image retoucher less that 30 seconds.

    Had a '64 Super Cub 50cc, almost 50 years ago. It topped out at around 45 MPH. Actually fun, regardless of speed, or lack thereof. . . tp

    I took less than a minute to adjust the color and contrast on that image, with the "Vespa" knocked out...

    And the reversed image (as shot)...

    See how your eye tends to stay in the upper image vs the lower image? When producing commercial images, there is thought to the design, flow, and emotion of an image, not just the technical aspects.

    Yeah, I got off on a tangent again. Sorry.
