My New Product Line Shop: Shop: Shop:+t-shirts This is a used 2007 (also current model) Vespa LX150 Scooter. Initially a one-off, the LXV was a special anniversary edition commemorating 60 years of Italian scooter production; it was an immediate hit and became part of the company's standard LX line. The LX is available in 4 engine sizes: 50cc 2 stroke, 50cc 4 stroke, 125cc and 150cc four stroke.
You're right that the 150cc scooter would not be a good choice for freeway commuting. That's still pretty good and a lot better than most scooters, including the old model LX125, which the new one betters by almost a third. Again, a fairly common setup amongst many similar-sized scooters and mopeds, but the Vespa's unit is one of the most comfortable ones we've come across so far.
You illustrate the design integrity of the 150LX in every one of your photos. These special edition scooters added a ribbed seat, black paint and matte accents and checkered graphics for a small premium. Vespa 50 N, 1989 - The changes to the Italian Highway Code meant that 50 cc vehicles were no longer bound by the 1.5 bhp limit, and Piaggio presented a new small Vespa with improved performance (over 2 bhp at 5,000 rpm), and new, smoother styling.
I was introduced to the Vespa LX 150 at the Vespa Piaggio showroom in Kota Damansara. On a land of people seeking for high fuel efficiency and practicality, the LX 125 comes with a claimed mileage of 62 kmpl. I can now stella easily haul 8 bags of groceries on the scooter using the built in bag hooks, under seat compartment, and rear rack with bungee cords.
The LX replaced the highly successful Vespa ET Range , the first "modern" Vespa. The LX50 model cost us $3,299, the LX150 $4,399. LX series replaces the glorious Vespa ET series models. With the new and highly technologically advanced 150 4Stroke 3 Valve power train, Piaggio once again opens a window to the future of motoring technology.
Vespa LX 125 prices start at Rs. 75,440 (Ex-Showroom). After some buzzing around (Vespa” means wasp in Italian) in the immediate vicinity, it became clear that most of us prefer the 150. In many ways than one, our colleague's LX 150 is indeed a gem in its own right.
