When it comes to vehicle brands, only one is so evocative of its type that it is often used synonymously. When you think of sports cars you might think of Ferrari or Lamborghini, and when you think of luxury sedans perhaps its Rolls Royce or Cadillac that springs to mind. But when you think of scooters? Well you think Vespa.
And whilst everyone thinks Vespa when they think of scooters, the reality is that Vespa scooters are entirely different from every other make available on the market today. Whereas all other modern scooters are made of a tubular frame covered with plastic panels, Vespas are built around a steel monocoque chassis which means the bodywork essentially is also the frame.
This gives Vespa scooters a number of advantages over other makes. Firstly, the Vespa chassis is a lot more rigid than a tubular frame, which means that handling is more solid and sure-footed, particularly in cornering. We've even had motorcycle riders who have been genuinely astonished about how well the modern Vespas handle (and a number of whom have now joined the ranks of the Vespisti, as we Vespa riders are known around the world). And secondly, because it is steel, the body lasts a lot longer than the plastics of other scooters.
There has never been a better time to buy a Vespa for sale! The price for a GTS 250, possibly the greatest scooter ever made, is currently almost $2,000 less than they were when we started selling them. Incredible! But we may not enjoy such a strong dollar for long, so get one before prices inevitably rise again!
It's all about passion. And that is why if you are thinking of investing in a Vespa, buy it from a dealer who cares. Cares about our customers, and cares about their Vespas, and who specifically specialise in these scooters, and these scooters alone.
