That is very cool...love the square headlight!
Ha ha...I used to 'dislike' the square headlight, as I wanted a vintage Vespa and thus 'must' have a round light.

But now, I think it makes the 50 more 'Special'...
It is a nice couple to see it beside my Sprint V. (with round and not trapeziod headlight 8) )

I am not fully used to the plastic square horn cover...luckily this is blackish on the first series, so it combines well with the saddle and tyre color.

Indeed, we had similar 'Vespa' branded Piaggio mopeds, named 'Vespa Ciao' and 'Piaggio Boxer'

'Bello Giallo', my little yellow Vespino (Sold - Nov. 2019)
As you can only ride one at the time, time is a precious asset, decided to sell my 50cc Vespa.
