4 Stroke Stella Arriving Soon

After almost a year and a half after posting this article, indeed Piaggio has been one-upped again.

Genuine Scooters will be coming out with the 4 Stroke version of the popular Vespa PX twin, the Stella.

The Stella, if you’re just tuning in, is a descendant of the Vespa PX150, made in India by LML Limited, who once built Vespas under license for the Asian market. Its uncanny resemblance to an 80s Vespa makes it wildly popular with scooterists who want the style, steel frame, and manual transmission of a vintage Vespa, with the warranty, dealer support, and reliability of a modern scooter. The downside is a decades-old engine design that features the same 2-stroke top end that cost Piaggio the environmentally-strict California market, driving them out of the U.S. in 1985. Genuine has always coveted the California market as well, (and vice versa) so a 4-stroke Stella has been a long-stated goal.

So the ball is now in Piaggio’s court, it’s entirely up to them if they want to develop the PX into a greener machine or just entirely ignore it and concentrate on their new Vespa lineup.
