Vespa GTV 250 — … And The Bike

Finally, after of riding on the back of my fiancee’s I have my own two wheels. It’s a GTV 250, a fashion-forward, retro-styled On the very first day I had it, I happily it to work, and with my newfound to split lanes and scoot traffic shaved 10 minutes off my 30-minute commute. Pulling the office, my co-workers stopped and as I kicked off my boots and slipped on my heels-I have this for shoes.

They all think the scooter is and it’s even cooler I’m the one riding it.

Confidently I home that evening, pretty fabulous as I got nods guys on their motorcycles. I was to my neighborhood, rounding a corner thumped my helmet, then my then my hand. A bird had me from above! No longer by my car, my once-pretty yellow top was now with brown splatter.

grossed-out, I dry-heaved in my helmet the of the way home. But telling friends of my experience, I learned that pooped on by a bird is supposed to be luck. Maybe, but what do you tell someone who’s been pooped on?!

Birdsh*t incident aside, the is great. Based on the GTS 250, the GTV V stands for vintage) adds a analog gauge cluster, windscreen, chrome handlebar and a chrome headlamp on the front like on the very first The brown split-leather saddle is into rider and passenger and matches the handgrips.

The Twist and Go transmission means there’s no and the 249cc single is more powerful enough to send me down city streets.

At 65 mph on the freeway the GTV feels solid, but faster than that and it to shake; good thing it out at around 75. The brakes feel too, though after a lot of riding my hand hurts squeezing the lever. Perhaps the part about the Vespa is inconspicuous. I get away with by cops who think nothing of a on a scooter.

With horsepower weight, however, and at 336 pounds of gas, I have a hard getting the GTV 250 on and off its centerstand.

It does have plenty of though. There’s a space the seat big enough for a gym bag with a of clothes and a convenient compartment up for my cell phone, etc. It has a handy hook for hanging my plus a flip-up chrome rack for additional bundles-bungee not included.

So there’s plenty of to hold my shopping, of which I do a

Speaking of buying stuff, at mpg the GTV 250 is great on gas, which me a ton of money (more shoes!). I it up once a week for less $10 and I’m good to go for 150 miles or better than the $80 per week I on my gas-guzzling four-wheeler.

All in all, the GTV 250 is a great scooter, and a ton of fun. But a city girl doesn’t this much power. The retro LXV 150 looks just as costs $1700 less and 70-75 mpg, which even more money guessed it-more shoes!
