  • La Vespa- I think I'm in LOVE

    Apr 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Come on, admit it, it's pretty cute looking. Great gas mileage. Zippy.
    Cons: none!

    Summary: I first would like to warn you that I'm a chick. Chick's tend to think differently about certain things, especially concerning cars (not all chicks, just a lot of them including myself). Heck, I'm not even sure how to check the oil in my car. So, this ... read more

    Pros: Cute, kitchy
    Cons: Unreliable, incomplete manufacturer warranty, bad customer service

    Summary: I've been dreaming of owning my Vespa for 8-10 years, now. My husband and I finally purchased one this past December. The 3rd time we took it out int he neighborhood, we ended up stranded about 3 miles away as it kept turning off while we were driving. ... read more

  • Vespa - lots of fun, but not so reliable

    Dec 28, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great fun to ride, easy on gas and to park - an overall blast!
    Cons: Sometimes doesn't want to start.

    Summary: Got the ET4 this past summer rather than replacing the old car with another - for commutes to the train station in Souther California it seemed ideal. Great gas mileage (about 55 mpg), no parking issues, and a complete blast to ride. I now have 2200 ... read more

  • Sexy, stylish, chic, pricey.

    May 23, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliable, stylish, modern technology (4 stroke)
    Cons: No aftermarket performance upgrades

    Summary: In America, Vespa has some long been associated with style, glamour, and chic mobility. Piaggio (the parent) company has capitalized on this fact to promote their bikes. You will not likely see a commercial on TV but you will see slick cameos at high ... read more

  • Definitely Habit Forming!!

    Pros: Beauty, fun, convenience, speed, fun, quickness, maneuverability, eye appeal, reliability, fun . . . .
    Cons: I can only manage to have one!

    Summary: I live in Manhattan and have been a motorcyclist for many years. Presently I ride a Harley on my long trips, but not around town. Especially since I bought my shiny 2004 ET4. It goes everywhere. Can be parked anywhere. Gets through traffic like a summer ... read more

  • Our Blue Vespa!

    Oct 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's every bit as good as everyone says. Buy a couple of them.
    Cons: Take it easy at high speed in the wind. Don't trust the optional side stand.

    Summary: My wife changed jobs to one much nearer home and surprised me by saying she should use a scooter for commuting, and leave the car at home. After a few weeks of this I realised she was serious...but we knew nothing about scooters. After a few trips to ... read more

    Jan 9, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: quiet, reliable, well built, fuel consumption, easy maintenance, friendly community
    Cons: none

    Summary: I bought a (new) 2001 Vespa ET4 in San Francisco in early 2002. The service I got from the dealer was horrible but I heard the salesman I bought it from was fired shortly after. Vespa Haus in Sacramento has much better service and much nicer people. ... read more

  • Vespa ET4 - The prescription for life's blahs

    Jan 8, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid construction, easy operation, superb handling, 4-stroke motor (for cleaner emissions)
    Cons: Styling (only because I think it looks a little too modern)

    Summary: I'm still not sure why I bought my Vespa -- just all of a sudden I had to have one. I have owned a motorcycle in the past, but had no interest in owning one now. The Vespa ET4 was the only scooter I considered. Here is Seattle, if you don't have the ... read more

  • Bigger is Better

    Nov 28, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pure Fun
    Cons: People like them too much

    Summary: If you are thinking about buying a scooter then this is the one to buy. Chances are you already know that Vespa imports two models. The Et4 which is 150cc ($3,995) and the et2 with a 50cc motor ($2,995). These models were introduced in Europe in 1996 ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, durable, functional and.........fun.
    Cons: None really, except for jurky SUV drivers who think they are cool but are not.

    Summary: First some history. I got my wife this little thing for her b-day in 2002, after she spent countless hours drooling on the windows of the Vespa dealer. She didn't have a car and couldn't/wouldn't drive my truck. So, I looked like the loving husband and sh ... read more

    Pros: Gas mileage, speed, acceleration.
    Cons: Price, safety.

    Summary: I recently purchased (May, 2003) a Vespa ET4 (150cc) for my 12-mile one-way commute to work (24 miles per day). The commute covers 7 miles of 35 mph and 45 mph pothole strewn back roads, 1 mile of gravel, 2 miles of 35 mph in town, and 2 miles of 50-70 ... read more

    Pros: Super stylish, solid body, fuel efficient.
    Cons: security, expensive (compared to other scooters), high seat.

    Summary: When I originally decided to purchase a scooter the Vespa ET4 was waaay out of my price range. I purchased a Kymco Cobra for R18000 (approx US$ 1800). The Kymco was stolen 3 days after I purchased it. While waiting for the insurance money I started ... read more

    Pros: Very comfortable, good smooth power, great transmission, good storage, easy to park.
    Cons: Chrome pieces have pitted and rusted in less than 11 months! Hard to kick start.

    Summary: Wow, the Vespa is back! That was my first thought after walking into a Vespa Boutique in Columbia, SC. Having ridden a Vespa in Jr. High, (1960 125cc model), I couldn't wait to test ride the new version. After a short ride around the parking lot I ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use and very fuel efficient
    Cons: Doesn't handle well on gravel.

    Summary: Recently I had an incident where my car refused to start. I was running late for work and calling in was not an option. My neighbor was kind enough to come to my rescue! She let me borrow what she lovingly refers to as her husband's "TOY". ... read more

    Jan 27, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's a Vespa, speed/power, style.
    Cons: A few nit-picky ones.

    Summary: I bought my ET-4 in the summer 2001. I had a Kymco People 50 and it was a great bike for the price. But I wanted the real thing, a metal bodied Italian Vespa. I looked into a classic and for almost the price of one that was pretty cherry I could get a ... read more

    Pros: Styling, high quality, performance, practicality and easy to use.
    Cons: Smallish fuel tank

    Summary: Ever since I traveled through Italy a couple of years ago I have liked scooters. Even though they are a very practical method of transportation in the city I was hesitant to buy one because I had no motorcycle / scooter experience. Two weeks ago I saw ... read more

    Nov 9, 2001 by

    Pros: Quality of materials and workmanship, beautiful design, ample power.
    Cons: None yet.

    Summary: An opportunity came along to buy a very slightly used Vespa ET4, one with only 290 miles on it. I couldn't resist, as I owned a Vespa 150 in the 1960's. The ET4 is first-rate --quiet, plenty powerful, beautiful to look at. I am completely delighted ... read more
