The ultimate Vespa: attractive (especially in white), fast, timeless design. Kitted mine out with Leo Vince pipe and large windscreen - now it is a joy to ride on 400 series highways (where it comfortably does 100-120kph despite barn door of a windscreen that creates a totally still pocket of air). Would love a manual transmission option for a more engaging ride. I've owned 20+ bikes over the years (cruisers, touring, sport-touring, runabouts, sidecar rigs) and for combination of manouverability in town and inter-city commuting + touring capacity this is one of the best. Seat is a bit hard for long rides, and suspension could be more plush, but the bike is a remarkably capable all-rounder, and a very satisfying ride. I recommend it.
