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.
Here you find spare parts, tuning parts, and accessories for the Vespa LX 125. Shine during the day too, as the LX returns to the classic rounded Vespa rear light. I remember getting off the LX 50 and saying'¦ 'œperfect'¦keep it all vespa the same, give it a bit more power and it's the perfect modern Vespa'.
I was actually surprised at how fast I got in such a short amount of time considering the Vespa looked like a slow ride due to the design. This model is for Vespa enthusiasts who love a more classic looking Vespa with advanced technology packed into the bike,” said Nik Danial Nik Mahmood, VP of Naza Two Wheels Division.
Her regular "Italian" ride is a Vespa GTS 250 large frame scooter. Piaggio's official stat sheet says that the 150 Primavera's max speed is 59 mph. As mentioned earlier, Vespa scooters have been around since just after the Second World War. Vespa 125, 1966 - Unofficially known as the "new 125", it featured radical innovations in the design, frame, engine (inclined 45°) and suspension.
The other day I ferried the LX150 home on a trailer so I could ride it in more urban and suburban settings than the rural roads around our test track. The ergonomics of the Fly fit me better than any other 150 scooter. Beyond the specifications sheet, the LX 150 has a unique character and charm to it.
When it came to slowing down however, I found myself using both front and rear brakes, as the rear drum brake feels ancient and unwilling to provide any stopping power whatsoever. Developed on the base of the 2005 Vespa LX, the LXV was designed as a tribute to the 1960s Vespas.
