New York IMS = GTS 300

During the New York leg of the International Motorcycle Show, Piaggio is officially unveiling the Vespa GTS 300! It's not as if Vespa fans didn't know about this months and months ago, but it wasn't an official scoot. Still isn't, that is until the 16th!
According to Piaggio, the GTS300 is the "Fastest Vespa Ever" and a couple of publications out of the UK agree. We'll let you know after ours arrive in the showroom next month!

Clarkson.. On a scooter.. AGAIN!

I just found this on

"Top Gear tours Vietnam on scooters, 1000 miles in 8 days"

If you recall our earlier post about Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, he's pretty resistant to scooters, so this link to the episode is guaranteed to be interesting! This challenge starts off with Clarkson, the Hamster, and that other guy getting $50 million each to buy a set of wheels. Now, it's $50 million in Vietnam's currency, which they soon realize, doesn't exactly get you much! Click on the above link for the FULL episode!

Added note:
I'm watching this right now, and there are scooters EVERYWHERE!!!

Jimmy's Scoot sells for Muchos Dineros

Jimmy Cooper's famous Lambretta Li from the movie Quadrophenia was on auction recently and the winning bid? 35,000 pounds! That's $51016 in U.S. smackers! While it is a lot of money for a scoot, some would argue that the Lambretta itself is priceless.

GTV 250 review: 4 out of 5 stars

In Feburary's Motor Cyclist magazine, there's a (very funny) review of a Vespa GTV 250 (see page 44). Michelle Sylvester, the author, apparently bought the scooter after years of riding as a pillion on other's bikes, and despite the horrors of getting pooped on by random birds, loves it.

Check out the Feburary Issue, on stands now.
