For far too Vespa have tended to a single model available at any time, with most based largely on the size of the The recent arrival of the GTV 250 as an alternative to the ever popular GTS 250 showed its not only possible for the scooter market to have multiple of essentially the same vehicle, appreciate the choice! And that’s the theme that Vespa extended with the S 125.

In contrast to the curved roundness of the LX, the S is all all angles. Not surprising really, as its much a 1970s sort of with a sporty edginess. the hood, its an identical beast to the LX based around the well air-cooled Leader engine, by the steel monocoque chassis gives Vespa scooters distinctive build and structural which totally surpasses any scooter on the market.

So whilst the is not particularly thrilling in a class now boasts an increasing number of injected and even liquid scooters, the handling remains an delight, and remains the key feature kicks the wannabees firmly touch. Whilst they try to like a Vespa, they don’t ride like And that’s what makes just so special.

Like all the in the Vespa range, and in a tradition back over 40 years, the itself provides the canvas on to stamp your own identity. with the S, where Vespa created a range of decals to your ride, along the racks, screens and other work which always Vespa’s stand out from the What’s more, in its latest Taormina (named after a in Sicily on the slopes of Mount a wonderful tangerine which may not be to taste, but is the ultimate look-at-me

Detractors call them but you do get what you pay for, and the quality of the and components is such that are built to last. No other brand on the market commands a high second hand so cost of ownership is actually a lot than some of the cheaper which quickly drop in Remember, you’re not just a scooter, you are buying a Vespa ALL the kudos and style-vouchers that you totally free of charge.

In if you are going to buy a Vespa S 125, then it be for its performance, and it won’t be for its price With the range of carrying including front as well as racks, you might buy it for its utilitarianism, somehow I doubt it. You’ll its nippy handling, the surety of its and the sturdiness of its build. But most of all buy it because it looks so damned and because its a style icon.

And you can’t measure that on a of 1 to 10, you just know it. But since (thanks Steve!) asked me to it numbers, I suppose that I

Handling: 9 — steel and leading arm suspension make a treat to ride

Performance: 6 could be better, but handles 80-90kmh roads with

Quality of Finish: 10 — a of areas that the perfectionist grumble about, but otherwise damned perfect

Storage 7 — no glove box, and no rack, but not too bad underseat and plenty available

Dash / Gauges: 7 or 10 on your taste! But for me, its 7.

Seating: 9 well made, comfortable, and the white piping, very and classy. And check the orange on the Taormina model. Attention to people, attention to detail!

9 — robust powerplant, to access through removal of bucket. Designed to be easy to on because not many panels are

Function of Parts: 8 — what it says on the tin. to have warranty issues.

EFI. LC: 5 — engine is a little basic now, the brand status and the superlative of its bigger brothers engines

for Money: 8 — expensive to but hold their value, so of ownership remarkably good.


But if the S 125 makes your tingle, then you won’t care what the score is. And you what? Why should you. you’ll absolutely love it!

the history and evocative styling the vespa brand has given to the refreshing and exciting to see a new offering on the in the shape of the vespa s 125.

S is for sports and they certainly captured the racing vespa from the heady seventies. quintessentially a Vespa, which is the true DNA is there which can be from a thousand paces, it European/continental style, a little of sunshine on the road.

As is the norm the vespa scooter, chrome the vehicle, rectangular mirrors, surround, dash housing and stating Vespa ,all to the nostalgic flavour. With a when you see chrome trimmings its the deal too,not too much here folks. Essentially the same mechanical blueprint as the LX the S series 125 states retro but in a dramatic way.

At the front the headlight is a bold move, away from the cute circular light with the vespa is synonymous. There is a fin on the front guard, cutting the air, the rectangular mirrors are a offering minimal vibration and of style aplenty.

The cockpit is a blast from the past, instruments surrounded in chrome look jukebox inspired, a flurry of warning lights the speedo to tell you when too top up oil and full beam, its colourful A great addition to this cluster is a digital clock,commuting Its not all looks however, the road and road in particular is really the for this Italian charmer.

Its light and agile, and moves about its business, it feels solid too. I noticed I didn’t have to think too about this scoot riding. it inspires confidence, you tend to think about the when riding this very smooth. On the other it attracts admiring attention, be for some nostalgic vespa with strangers if you buy one.

I the quality of parts,from the engine right through to the shopping function and design,easily put together,evidence of of production and passion.The paint is second too none. the steel body offering a shiny not found on other scooters.The S 125 has a seat. very capable for runs and is again styled with white piping the edges. The ride position is upright and alert with leg room, this is mainly the running boards for your encroach upwards, allowing you to and flex your legs on the

Storage under the seat is usable, most half and face helmets would fit in its removable too so you can wash out any petrol S does lack a lockable box, but has an open cavity on the leg so at least small items sunglasses or loose change can be to Just be careful what you leave in there though as the will get into it.( If the is a must get an LX125! AD)

Red,black and white are the colour for this model, a palette available for the flagship GTS Super 300 model is a favourite of mine so it has on my radar, its basically a fun, slice of retro cool, and by I am thinking Starsky and Hutch and rather than flared and Woodstock! If you are looking for a fuel solidly built slice of design look no further, the re-sale value is excellent if you to part ways, but along the way you have a blast, see you on the road!
