Would love to see them all in one place instead of fishing around.
I see no new topics, so I started these two.

I am thinking on a GT200 or LX for myself, but when I went to dealer the owner "placed" me with an S type model. Looked at it, it looked fine for me; looked the other way at the GTs they looked BIG!!! I don't know why, I am 5'6" tall and 173 lbs.

The S is a very capable ride. I go pretty much everywhere on mine and that's why I put the seat pad, windscreen, and topbox on. The day I took that pic I rode over 90 miles. I bought it in July and have over 5200 miles on it now.

Here are a couple more shots from my ride on Thursday the 15th.


A barn I saw on my ride.


Parked by the roadside.

Hopefully we'll see some orange ones.
Initially I went in to buy the aprilia mojito (havana), but I liked the S's solid build much better.

So I would liek to know how tall are you and how much is your weight, and if the S fits you well...

Dang, the more and more I see the Vespa Ss, the more I like them. If I had unlimited amounts of money, i would buy one for sure.

I'd be torn between the white and red though. Heh, glad my bank account is such that I don't have to make that decision!

Thanks for posting the pics guys, I haven't seen too many of these around town so its nice to see some pictures of these in real life.

2009 Vespa S150
Here's my red '09. Got it a week ago...punctured the tire last night. Shame, as I was going to go grocery shopping with it for the first time today. That, and it makes me a little bit sick to have to replace a week-old tire.
BTW, the lack of glovebox is fantastic. I've been able to fit a standard 16.9 oz bottle of water in the holder and a smoothie too (not at the same time).


Parked on the street.


In the store before I added top case.

ORANGE!
The guys at the Vespa service center called it "orange crush" (which i love) but i call it the Nimbus 2000 (b/c i'm a Harry Potter geek). unfortunately i haven't taken any pictures of it without me on it...but that's because i'm rarely NOT on it. I swapped the sport seat for the touring, which i kind of regret b/c the sport seat had orange stitching.

My 3/4, XL size with face shield and a pair of gloves fit fine under my seat. I doubt a ff of the same size would fit but it does have the hook. My helmet is a Nolan so there could be some difference between helmet manufacturers.

Today I went to the grocery and had a package of chicken and a package of porkchops under the seat. A gallon of milk, two packages of cheese, and a package of sliced ham in my top case. Between my feet on the round hook I had a bag with my cereal in it. Quite the functional little grocery getter...
