Went to the dealer the other way to test ride the Guzzi V85, and took the opportunity to ride a Vespa 300GTS, too. Aside from the X-ADV, this is the only scooter I have ridden. I was struck by how different it was from riding a motorcycle. Engine was flexible and well mapped, but lacking power. The CVT worked fine, very linear and predictible. Suspension felt very odd at first, with zero dive at braking. Once on the way, it absorbed road imperfections well, without being overly soft. On the highway, the limited engine power and small wheels made for a somewhat less relaxed experience. I needed to work more than on a regular bike, with input to correct for wind gusts and tracks in the road surface etc. Wind management was surprisingly good, even without a screen, as were vibrations, of which there were almost none! Impressive! The Vespa is however too compact for my height, and I did not really find a comfortable position. To sum it up, I really liked riding a scooter, even though I cannot see a Vespa as a potential candidate. There was also a 2017 Beverly 350, which I sat on. Also too small, and I did not like the design at all. How does the modern Vespa compare to XMAX 300 or Kawasaki J300?
