I have had an MP3 400 which my daughter used to widen the garage 😢
My next bike was a BV 350 which has been great. I called her Beverley. This week, I am selling her and bringing home a Vespa 300 GTS Super Sport which I am calling Capri. Does anyone on Modern Vespa name their scooter?


This is Capri

GTS - Mechanical Squirrel, because its so twitchy when pushed on a twisty road

MP3 - Donkey, because it handled like one when pushed on the back roads. This bike has since left us.

Suzuki Cafe Racer - Mouse, because this little 250 is so little.

Just two
My family used to name their cars. I think just to buck that tradition I didn't name my cars, but I immediately named my scooters.

Vespa GT 200 - Bo
Vespa GTS 300 - Tethys

(Bo was short for Boanerges - one of the sons of thunder. Tethys is titanium grey and was the name of the Titan goddess of thunder.)

I never anthropomorphize inanimate objects, because they hate that.
