Oh, the Cosa prototype and how it should have been. We got this instead. Did anyone say UGLY??
I knew someone would soon come around hating on this beautiful scoot.
Sure,maybe kinda ugly a little bit next to ANY OTHER SHIFTY,
but next to most newer ones, I still like the way this baby looks.
And the way I can choose gears and rev the motor at stop lites, too.


A clean machine and best engineered Vespa shifty ever!

... oh but please ...
What was wrong with the Vespa to make it the subject of color samples ...

I'd buy that tomorrow. When I'm not riding it, it would be worshipped in the lounge room.

This is what happens with "Influencers" and all the social networks crap nowadays. Such a shame this "thing" was given the OK to go into production...
So insensitive!!

As a partially colour-blind person I fully support manufacturers putting colour-blind workers on the assembly line. Come on now, learn to embrace it! It’s the right thing to do!

My comment wasn't going for the guy. I don't even know him. It's about the everyday crap promoted by social media and companies who try to shove them down our throats, as fashion, etc.

Personally, I don't like it and I'm not the only one...

No one's shoving it down your throat. I kind of like it, though I'd take the lettering off the cowl.

I'm really liking the H20.

It's got a real 1998 Sci Fi feel to it with it's angles and gun metal grey paint.

Less is more I believe.

Hmmmm... it's a joke, I was picturing a factory of colourblind people picking and assembling all the right parts in completely wrong colours, think Monty Python-esque.
