The name of a scooter. This brand was first invented in 1946 by Enrico Piaggio in Italy, the founder of Piaggio, a scooter manufacturer. Despite what many people tell you, Vespa itself is not a company on it's own.

Vespa is known all over the world for it's commitment to quality and good handling during operation. Vespas along with the Lambretta are favorites among the British mod crowd in Britian. It's biggest distinction from other scooters made by mainstream companies is that every model before the ET2 has styled a fetching retro look.

Vespa could be classified as a subculture or even as a selective lifestyle due to the affection this scooter recieves from scooter enthusiasts. Many people spend years modifying their scooters...(and despite what other people say Vespas are not slow, most of them have the same average speed as other scooter brands).

One of Vespa's first slogans is "La Dolce Vita"-"The Sweet Life".
I rode home on my Vespa and I ran over a few squirrels on the way.

An Easter egg delivering queer chariot. these are the choosen steed of the born again scooterist in a mid-life crisis often over adorned in cheap and nasty chrome products,lights,mirrors,easter eggs and shod in white wall ditch finder tyres made in eastern europe making the 125cc engine even less powerful than an african child with malnutrition& TB.These fishtail parka wearing freaks are sniggered at by both members of the public and proper scooterist alike.

The most widely available is the PX which has been around in 1 form or another for about nearly 30 years. However to see one this old is pretty rare as they have either been hacked to bits and turned into cutdowns or a rat bike or at the 1st sign of rust they roll over and pack it in a bit like France in 1940. Surprisingly for a machine made a by an Italian company who made war products it has no high speed reverse gear or even a reverse gear come to think of it. Although the sad twats who put them into vans and drive them to scooter rallies instead of riding them there would probaly appreciate one.

Can normally be found disintergrating in a garage/garden near you
