Great design which won't date, solid build, good performance & handling.
Quite heavy, small underseat storage.
I'd been coveting a scooter for a while and could not decide between a classic(PX - geared but dodgy handling) or twist 'n' go (ET4-no gears,a bit effeminate). Then along came the Vespa GT200 Scooter and such was my luck that my local dealer had one with only 20 kilometers on the clock. 7 months on it still has only about 1200 - I'm only a fair weather rider - but each of those kilometers have been cherished. Not quite as wieldy as smaller scoots but very stable and great for beating the traffic. Averaging about 80mpg, not taken it over 65mph yet. Only seen one other in my area but expect to see more in time. Plan to keep it for a long time.
