Thanks for posting that video mongoose...it was incredible! I was down at the Vespa/BMW dealer yesterday and the parts manager was telling me something about a turbo-charged Vespa video that was making the rounds. I almost didn't believe him!

42hp at the wheel!!!!! That's insane. That thing sounds weird though. Kind of clatters like a diesel at some points.

As amazing as that is, I'd never get on it - I dunno why, that's kinda scary (that much power, and revving it so high to reach that)...

Well, I might get on it and keep it under 50

Hell, I'll drink to just about anything. To ride a scoot like that, I'd probably need a drink to loosen up first, anyhow.

Turbo Vespa
Thats sick. I can see the ad now

Porsche 911 Twin Turbo 0-60 3.8 seconds $110,000
Dodge Viper 0-60 4.0 seconds $85,000

Well, here's something to think about, top speed is based on the turbocharger's size IIRC, so here's a question, why not downsize it a touch? Fast as hell, but not insanely so.
