    It is a brand that has always been synonymous with the kind of stylish, elegant designs that have always characterized automotive and vehicle manufacturing and conception in Europe.  It has been recreated in dozens of different models, some rare, some so common they are visible in almost any European city on a given day, and it is a brand that has continued to evolve and sustain itself in the 21st century.  It is the exotic and cultured taste of Italian culture and manufacturing specifically, a country renowned for such household designer automobile names as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Ducati.  It is Vespa, the famous and world-travelled line of motorized scooters that first made their appearance in the middle of the 20th century, and have spread to become a worldwide phenomenon in the half century since.  Loved by casual users, eco-conscious individuals, and rare or exotic automobile and motorcycle collectors alike, the Vespa and its many different iterations and designs has long been one of the more recognizable and sought after brand names in automotives, and specifically in the motorcycle and motor scooter arenas, in the past sixty years.

    What are some of the reasons you should consider making a Vespa your ride of choice in the near future? There are countless ones, but here are some of the more popular:

    It’s all about Image, Man: Sure, there are dozens of different road bikes, motor scooters, and motorcycles of all shapes and sizes that might be attractive for your personal recreational or professional needs.  But with a Vespa, part of the package has always been that sleek, cosmopolitan design that has allowed Vespas to stand out from the pack of other motor bikes over the past half century.  With their iconic art deco-influenced colors and rounded edges, to the famous joined handlebar designs that remain an iconic feature of some of the more popular lines of Vespa products, Vespa has cultivated and disseminated an image of refinement and culture throughout the bikes’ existence.  From their days as the vehicle of choice for the Mod movement in 1960s England, to their adoption as a practical commercial road bike by the masses in both Europe and America during the latter half of the 1960s and the 1970s, Vespa bikes have served in many roles: a fashion statement, a cultural statement, a sign of hipness, or a sign of environmental consciousness. Speaking of…..

    What a Gas: Have you been to your local gas station lately? Did you worry about your eyes popping out of your skull when you saw the price tag for filling up your car, or worse, your SUV this past week?  If you were in the United States, you were probably already dreading the next time (i.e. a few days later) you’ll have to experience that again.  In Europe, you’d feel even worse.

    Enter the Vespa motor scooters, with some models touting gas mileage of fifty or sixty miles per gallon on the highway, with a few even touting gas usage of better than that.  We don’t need to tell you how much money that puts back in your pocket each week that goes by without you needing to return to the pump so fast.  With the growing acceptance and integration of bike lanes and bike-friendly rules and regulations in both urban centers and college towns across the United States, Vespas can offer an efficient and affordable option to both an automobile or your standard bicycle.  With models that tout top speeds anywhere from the 40 mile per hour range to regular highway speeds, a used Vespa can be just the ticket to make your city commute easier, while also making the impact on your bank account a little easier as well.

    Yeah, but what is all this gonna run me?: Good news here too, potential Vespa enthusiast.  Because there is such a wide range and variety of Vespa models, each with its own specific focus as a road bike, touring bike, pleasure bike etc, there is a Vespa model for any customer.  Looking for a cheap, affordable way to start commuting? Vespa road bikes ideal for urban use can be found for anywhere from $3,000-$8,000 for new or used models, depending on both the condition of the bike as well as its initial factory features.  With fancy street bicycles going for anywhere from $1,000-2,000 and even more, the Vespa offers a motorized and less labor-intensive option for someone looking for an alternative to automobiles, walking, or public transportation to get around.  For the more avid motorcycle or automobile collector, however, there is a significant number of early Vespa lines that were produced in much more limited quantities than some of the more mass-produced and popular Vespa models.  Some of these, like the Gran Sport and GT models produced in the 1960s, can command tens of thousands of dollars, especially for the increasingly rare models that contain a full set of working parts and accessories.  As such, if you can get a hold of an early model Vespa in good working condition, you can stand to make a pretty penny on the open market from other antique automobile and motorcycle collectors.

    The final thing to consider here is the original point we made.  With no end in sight to rising gas costs in the near future, the long-term savings of using a Vespa, especially for someone looking to actively use the bike for recreational or commuting purposes, can easily pay for the cost of the bike in the long run.  Couple that with the exceedingly easy maintenance and upkeep of the more popular or recent Vespa lines (which use interchangeable parts which are easily available from Vespa), and the bikes are a great choice for a do-it-yourself person who enjoys performing their own maintenance and upkeep.  Whether you’re looking for something to cruise along the beach or lake on, or a new piece to your auto collection, or just a dependable and affordable alternative to your current commuting routine, take a look at a used Vespa.  It may be just the right choice for your needs, whatever they may be.
