yes i am aware this is a vespa haven:)
i am a baby to this scooter stuff and i am about to get my first scooter. I totally love the vespas, but i checked out newer ones the other day and was kind of taken by surprise by their size. they seemed kind of big to me. anyway, ive been looking around and have found this Bajaj Chetak 150cc, and i love the way it looks. but its a 4 gear manual transmission. anyone know how this works? like where is the clutch? is this easy to learn? i did the whole motorcycle safety school thing in san francisco, but because i knew i was getting a scooter, i rode a scooter. and it was some old honda, automatic. press start and go. so i didnt learn how to drive a manual. besides, it doesnt appear to me a manual scooter is driven the same way as a manual motorcycle with the gear shift at your feet.
perhaps someone knows of a scooter that has the look of this Bajaj Chetak 150cc that is automatic? i think i like the older european style of scooters over the sleek very pretty new vespas.
i love the genuine stellas, but alas, theyre not for sale anymore anywhere near me, that i can find.
