I like red or yellow on scoots and motorcycles.
I can just imagine how it sounds and rides.

ps: I also like the blue, green, orange, silver, black, and white ones too.
Shucks, guess I like em all.
I love scooters and whats not to like about a Wasp?.

Enjoy.

The ride is VERY different the the other Vespa's in our fleet. I just scuffed the tires in today.

The SOUND is amazing. I drove through some parking garages today downtown and threw alleys between the high rises. Its additive.

I will let her know before the first group ride. I did an owners draw on my operating account for my company to buy it. So I got some breathing room. but I had to get the Exhaust on because she is a firm believer of using up the useful life first.

I put 3k miles on the Vintage last year. So the plan is to cut its miles down. I would not be Surprised if I put 6-7k miles a year on this one. I got the 3 year warranty on the advise of Ed at AF1 since he said I will need shocks, and likely a Voltage Regulator with that many miles. So they called it a safe bet.

They advanced the timing and changed the fuel mapping so it runs a bit richer vs the lean condition as set up for the DOT/EPA, additional it takes in to account that I am not using the OEM exhaust.
