Hello all Vespa Lover,
I found this MV forum through google, and i glad i found it. Any way i live in indonesia, motor cycle is the most effective transportation here according the traffic and money wise. I had a honda scooter before in the past, i sold it because i had to move back to usa last year. I always wanted modern vespa,because i love the style and model and i think it's timeless looking style. but i did not buy it until last month. The reason i did not buy vespa in the past was the price it self, about 6000 usd for Vespa LX 150 i.e. I thought that price was too much for LX 150 i.e. I knew the price for same model in us about 5000 usd (everything included). Before, Piaggio products including vespa come to indonesia through PT SKN - general importer company. Then early this year Piaggio established PT. Piaggio Indonesia, in the meaning they are now the only company that can sell Vespa products in indonesia. They are selling Vespa products made in Vietnam, because they have factory in vietnam. PI selling vespa lx 150 i.e about 2700 usd on the road(tax and everything included)
We had 2011 Indonesia International Motor Show at Jakarta last month, that time i went to see. Then after i did some deep research regarding the LX 150 i.e i decided to buy 2011 LX 150 i.e. color is white. PI told me i'm gonna get my vespa in october, because they don't have in stock. I'm really bad waiting for my vespa i want to drive my vespa so bad.
i would like to ask LX 150 owner about experience having their LX please...
and also i worry about fuel pump issue, do you think my 2011 LX a part of fuel pump recall? in indonesia we do not really have NHTSA like in usa. Thanks a lot.
