My New Product Line Shop: Shop: Shop:+t-shirts This is a used 2007 (also current model) Vespa LX150 Scooter. My wife and I go touring in our motor home and we take the Piaggio with us on a bike rack on the back, we have just come back from Spain where we spent 7 months there, during that time we did over 7000 kilometres on our Piaggio and although this scooter was is not built for touring we found that 150 mile round trip was quite bearable, once you got acclimatised to it, it performed very well with two up, with an amazing 73mpg, not bad for two 12 stone heavyweights on, and one Yorkshire Terrier in the top box, Just had to take it easy on the bends, I must take my hat off to Piaggio, it performed far better that I was led to believe.
The recall includes 12 Piaggio and Vespa models built between 2008 and 2011. The LX 150 loses this in preference to typical brake levers on the left and right of the handle bars. The choice between the LX150 and the GT200 or GTS250 is personal. The following specs are for the 2 stroke 50cc and LEADER (pre-fuel injected) 125cc and 150cc.
Vespa LX 125 prices start at Rs. 75,440 (Ex-Showroom). After some buzzing around (Vespa” means wasp in Italian) in the immediate vicinity, it became clear that most of us prefer the 150. In many ways than one, our colleague's LX 150 is indeed a gem in its own right.
The ride is surprisingly smooth and the little tires allow the Vespa to corner well and provide excellent swerving ability. Vespa introduced the LXV 150, a step-through scooter, in 2007. The new Vespa LX 125 looks sleek with the old bolts tucked away. Complementing the LXV 150 3V i.e.'s compliant and comfortable suzzies is the highly compact overall dimension.
The locking up of the front wheel during intense braking or due to slippery asphalt is generally the most significant hazard for motorbike and scooter riders and passengers. Vespa still used carburetors rather than fuel injectors in its scooters for 2007, which may reduce fuel economy, but riders report averaging about 60 miles to the gallon; the gas tank holds 2.3 gallons.
In the winter when scooters may sit for long periods of time you need a trickle charger. Take a look at the 60th Anniversary edition of the Vespa LXV 125. It's a very agile little machine, more so than some scooters because of the small wheels, just 11 inches at genuine the front and 10 inches at the rear.
