I’m absolutely happy owning a Vespa, it doesn’t age with time, still people get wondered when I say the...

2023 Vespa Views and Reviews

Vespa is 76 years old this year. Since Vespa just celebrated its 75th anniversary in grand fashion, no one is likely to pay much attention to the upcoming 76th one. However, we must not forget about Vespa for even a second, since Piaggio’s technical and, more importantly, its aesthetic divisions are always striving to modernize the iconic scooter. Vespa presented subtle updates to the core design at EICMA 2022.

Commuting from Silver Lake to Hollywood on a Vespa?

I have to live in LA for the year and have been doing my commute by bike which is just awful as there are no bike lanes most of my route, I’ve been having to take up a whole lane and I’m just so stressed the whole time. I get home and want to cry sometimes. I can’t stand cars so driving one isn’t an option for me. I’m thinking about getting a vespa this week, anyone have experience riding scooters in LA? Is it stressful? Just trying to make my commute a positive experience. submitted by /u/squid-lay [link] [comments]

2023 Vespa GTS300 Review – First Ride

Although the word “iconic” is tossed around in marketing materials far too frequently, very few means of motorized transport find themselves deserving of the term. Vespa is one of those marques. Much like Xerox was, at one point, what all means of photocopying were called, there was an era in which all scooters were generically referred to as Vespas. While the market has advanced beyond that point, Vespa has had the foresight to retain its ties to the machines that first turned the world’s eyes. Case-in-point, the 2023 Vespa GTS 300 has a profile that is immediately recognizable as an heir to the Italian name.

VUEA, VESPA rally to counter district proposal over healthcare cap

At the VUSD board meeting held at the Education Service Center Nov 8, 2022, educators and staff came forward to share their thoughts on the ongoing fight for a full 12.84% pay raise. During the start of the negotiations process, educators were offered a 1% pay increase, as well as a 3% one time bonus. This sparked outrage within the community and staff went on to show support for competitive salaries by putting signs in their car windows and on their lawns, wearing red on Wednesday’s to schools, and secondary students even took part by organizing a walk-out. At recent board meetings, in addition to educators, parents, students, paraeducators and retired staff have taken it upon themselves to express their concerns on the offered raise.

Honey I Shrunk the 10298

LEGO’s 10298 Vespa 125 set is wonderful in every way. Thus we love this miniaturised version by Flickr’s 1saac W., who has captured the iconic Italian scooter beautifully in brick-form. The set’s lovely blue colour is switched for cream, but if LEGO can do it themselves with their other Italian icon, cream is good enough for us! See more at 1saac’s photostream via the link!

2023 Vespa GTS 300 Review [Scooter Testing in Italy]

There are a few things that Italy figured out long ago: red sauce on pasta, the Pope in silly hats, and Vespas in Rome. Should you have the good fortune of waking up in the boot-shaped nation’s historic capital city, you’ll undoubtedly want to see its breathtaking landmarks in short order. One could lace up their sneakers and hoof it, but that’s pedestrian. Hailing a cab and holding on for dear life isn’t a poor choice, though universally taxing. Of course, it’s tough to be beat scooting to the sights on the 2023 Vespa GTS 300.

Vespa Entire Ranged Revised For 2023 – Showcased EICMA

Vespa Gts will go down as one of the world’s best-loved two-wheelers as it follows on from the legendary “Vespone”, the name given to those Vespas with a larger, strictly steel body. Vespas with which to move elegantly around town but that are also ready to travel, or even adventure thanks to their increasingly generous engines. It has clearly evolved stylistically, maintaining that magical balance between tradition and modernity that comes out in the lines of the Gts, painstakingly refined down to the smallest detail, thereby elevating the perceived quality to unprecedented levels. The “neck tie” on the front shield is new, as well as the metallic profiles of the body, now available in different finishes, whereas the entire lighting system is fully LED. The rear part has also been revisited, introducing new side panels, a new license plate bracket, and new shapes for the lighting system. Also brand new are the mirrors, the handlebar, now wider and ergonomic, and the electrical controls, whereas new instrumentation has been introduced that contains even more information, and the keyless system. The saddle is also new, more comfortable and more refined, which allows the riders feet to rest better on the ground. In terms of comfort, the new Vespa Gts takes a bold step forward, also thanks to the new front suspension with more controlled operation and better capability to absorb any type of bump. The more efficient and powerful braking system is also new. ABS and the rear wheel traction control system come standard. There are four versions in the range differed by their equipment packages and colour variants (for a total of 14 available colours), whereas 2 engines are available for the new Vespa Gts: the 300 hpe, capable of almost 24 HP, the most powerful engine ever mounted in a factory Vespa, and the 125 of the i-get series, featuring Start & Stop, brilliant performance, and truly low fuel consumption.
