An Italian Classic (Vespa LX 125 3

Posted on September 14, 2012 at pm

PIAGGIO started manufacturing scooters in Italy in 1946, over 66 years of Vespa and during that time sold more than 17 vehicles worldwide. Over the Vespa has become a leading icon and global brand it’s also helped to an all-encompassing lifestyle for the avid

Despite the gloomy financial of the world, Piaggio market rose to 20.1% in 2011 and sold an impressive 152,000 which is three times as as in 2004.

The latest scooter to from scooter evolution is the successful Vespa LX. The LX has been a scooter, its light and compact, has a low height (which makes it an first scooter) and has attractive That styling remains unchanged on the latest model, than a new speedo, revised horn grill, Vespa logo on the centre floor mat and a of minor detail changes.

The big news for this particular was the all-new 3-valve engine.

The spanking new four …, air cooled 3V engine makes and has a new three valve cylinder Obviously the engine is fuel and the LX now uses a third generation MIU G3 and integrated spark-advance, air/fuel and phase management with and three-way catalyst.

The automatic CVT transmission has also had work to optimise efficiency and which is good news for us all the engine now boasts a belt of over 12,427 miles and intervals on the scooter have extended to 10,000km.

Fuel is claimed to be a very respectable (or 55km a litre at 50kmh) an of 27% over the old engine. Those mean in theory if you cover a year you could save 34 litres of fuel and ride for free! CO2 has also been by more than 30% so all in all it’s a and frugal little engine.

You can usually tell almost if you’re going to like a or not and after starting the LX and blipping the I could sense that the new 3V was going to be quite nippy, it was as eager to get going as I was whilst in the scorching Italian sunshine.

the roads in the UK are much more friendly and even riding in is a walk in the park after little blast. The LX is very for city riding, it’s so you can point it in the right direction and nip traffic at will, it’s light and nimble so you can turn it in the smallest of roads.

As expected, the new engine delivers it promises, so has loads of low down and mid power, which is very whilst trying to dive a small gap between four of crazy Italian drivers. extra bit of power helps to you safe and it’s always to have a bit left over in

We didn’t get a chance to test the top of the scooters, although I did manage to see to 65mph on the clock during one free blast. Apart suicidal drivers Rome has an abundance of cobbled streets and which are all good places to a scooters suspension. I’m pleased to that the LX handled the dodgy without hassle and the Michelin Grip tyres more lived up to their name.

The new Vespa LX 3V is available now; it in a choice of five colours and is as a 50cc two … for £2399 or the four … for £3449. If looking for a machine to blast the city, or to travel further the LX is more than capable.
