Stumbled upon these pictures of the Vespa GTV 250ie on the net.. Nakakapanghina.. Bat kasi ako pinanganak na mahirap.. :'( :'( :'(

At first, Im not quite satisfied with the color. Im a fan of black and chrome kasi. But that's just me. Parang primer lang e.. Looks like the bike is painted halfway done.  ;D .. and color availability is only this color and the portofino green. But upon learning that all of the flagship vespas since 1950's are painted with this color, habang tumatagal, lalo pala syang gumaganda...for sure it will still look nice with chromes. Simply put, it is still the same vespa we love, but this time... in all-in-one package.

This is the most legendary 2wheeler of all time that resembles the functions and looks of the 1950's to 1960's vespa. The handle bar style from the 1953 Vespa Handlebar. The fender mounted headlight still from the very first Vespa prototype in the '40s, headlight moved up by the handlebars in the '50s and moved back to the fender on this very special vintage model. The same wasp look, saddle seats from the vintage vespas, but now with hand crafted tuscan genuine leathers (isn't it that Ferraris also come with hand crafted leather seats?). Vintage paint finish that they call Aeronautic Grey way before we were born. Now its called Avio Grey..

But now it embraces the latest available technology that mankind currently have.

among others were..

• 250cc four-valve
• liquid-cooled engine with electronic injection
• 3-way catalytic converter
• lambda sensor (although i dont know what's this for ;D)
• digital dashboard
• key immobiliser
• double rear shock absorber
• 12" wheels stopped by two disk brakes

...and a lot more!








...this is indeed the best bike that money can buy!

Teka.. how much nga pala ito? (...holding on to my seat now!)

dream bike ko to :)

Ben Dover on March 22, 2008, 05:25:57 PM
Ako din.. dream bike ko din!  ;D

... a lot of people sure will say "At that price, you can buy a good condition second hand Yamaha R1!", "Bah! bili na lang ako kotse!", "Pwede ka na bumili ng apat na PX sa price na yan! Use one that best suits the color of your Lacoste shirt on a certain day!".. and a lot more..

... but then again, those people lost the essence why you want to buy such a bike. It's not just a bike, it is somethin that represents an Italian art in our lifetime that will soon be treated as a collector's item and will be seen in museums.., hehehe.. maybe few decades from now. How does it feels like knowing finest italian leather craftsmen prick their hands just to come up with a masterpiece to catch you a$s while riding? Look, every year, a new super bike is unleashed. Every year, a new car model is launched. Time will come that your car or your superbike can turn heads no more. But this one?

When do you think will it go out of style?

Answer?

...IT WONT.

 Wow...the beige really looks nice!!!  Classic color in a modern Vespa.....MMMmmmmmmmmmm...........

noblewolf on April 22, 2008, 02:09:25 PM
..and the contrast of the brown tuscani leather matches very well with the off white..or cream paintwork.

pero hindi ba parang girlish or gayish ang color?  ;D
