Nothing that different from the U.S. offerings. Wonder if European prices are just as crazy as ours. Then again all manufactures charge mint for their OEM accessories. I would love heated grips but I know the electrical system won't get the grips very hot. Going to look for heated gloves for my ebike today. Everyone on the bicycle forums suggest Milwaukee M12 litho-heated gloves.

I did buy the seat to grip lock for my Liberty so I can lock my Shuberth helmet (no D-rings) but never use it. I just carry my helmet in with me.

We all know about the glare from the factory windscreen. Mine is rotting in the box in my garage rafters.

I bought the rubber floor mat. No idea why. Works I guess.

The OEM rack plate is designed to fit GIVI trunks. Fits my KAPPA great and is rock solid. Was kinda tricky to install if I recall.

Wanted a side stand but after having my Zuma and Burgman fall over while on the side stands I'll pass. Plus it looks kinda labor intensive to install.

The prices of accessories are also high here in Italy ... Side stand speech, on scooters you need a lot to get off safely, you arrive, open it, get out and then put the scooter on the central stand. It is helpful to have it ready when it is stationary operation but carefully.
That of the Vespa (or others) with the automatic return spring is dangerous.

I agree the spring has its issues and attaching the side stand to the engine so it will not go forward is better. However if the option is not available it's preferable to have a self retracting side stand or that first left have turn can be a doozy.

Is there a page like this but for Vespas specifically? I only saw recent piaggio models on that link.

There are alternative kits or you can change one, I've seen many at motorcycle rallies. On modern Vespas (200-250-300) they modify them all because it is safer without automatic return and with safety switch.
