    VESPA P150X

    Sharing the twin billing of probably the most sturdy model of Vespa scooters to reach widespread usage in the United States, as well as the most commonly encountered Vespa model in use in present day, the the P-series of Vespas (featuring the P125X, the P150X which is concentrated on here, and the later P200X as well) are certainly one of the most well-known scooters Vespa has ever rolled off the assembly line at Pontadera.  While the P-series is the last of the line to be produced, and is still being produced at Vespa plants today, it is not known for how much longer the P-series bikes will be a mainstay of production.  The P-series itself is known for its featuring of a major redesign of the bike from previous iterations of Vespas, which had up to that point simply been re-imagined or adaptations of earlier designs with new twists or features added.  In comparison, the P-series bikes were new in almost every aspect of design and style, with all three models sharing the same basic design with only their respective motor designs and sizes providing a contrast between them.  Common to all the bikes was much larger and more angular frame, which featured angular cowls that concealed the locking pin that in turn concealed the electronic connection to ignite the bike, signaling a vast improvement in consistency than the more delicately-started bikes of earlier models.

    The motor of the P150X itself, as can be inferred by the bike’s name, operated at 150ccs and was modeled on the 150cc motor of the Sprint series of Vespas that had already been in production and widespread popular use for years by the time of the release of the Vespa P150X.  The P150X retained a points ignition system, of the kind that had been featured on most Vespas released up to this point, although the electrical system was upgraded to a 12-volt battery, an upgrade for Vespa from earlier models and a significant improvement in both form and function.  Whereas earlier ignition systems had long provided headaches for Vespa owners, the new ignition system in the P-series bikes marked a welcome departure from the norm and ensured the P-series’ relevance and usability for a longer period than many of the contemporary Vespa bikes.  As far as its relevancy today, the Vespa P150X provides both a comfortable and competent ride on today’s American streets and roadways, with its motor size providing the necessary power for practical use in most towns and cities.  With production ongoing on this series of bikes, parts are also still widely available, making the P150X a practical bike to own in today’s market and an easy bike to maintain as well.
