The Stella 4-stroke Scooter is voted the Best Scooter for 2011 by

Best Scooter
Genuine Stella 4-Stroke
You’d be forgiven if you mistake our Scooter of the Year for a classic Vespa PX. The vintage-styled Genuine Stella 4-Stroke is produced by Piaggio’s former Indian partner, LML, and though that partnership ended in 1999, the Stella and PX still have a lot in common.

The Stella has been available for a couple of years now, but it’s new to California thanks to the 2011 model’s 148cc four-stroke engine. Other features include front disc brakes, halogen headlights, and an eye-popping claimed fuel economy of 140 mpg. And unlike most modern scooters on the road, the Stella uses a four-speed “twist-grip” manual transmission similar to vintage Vespas and Lambrettas. Other classic touches include the stamped-steel monocoque body and a spare tire under the left side cover. At $3599, the Genuine Stella 4-Stroke is also more affordable than a 150cc Vespa.
