Vespa LX150 Scooter Review

by Catherine
(Phoenix, AZ)

Classic, chic design that garners the respect of Harley riders (it's the ONLY scooter they respect)! Before mine got stolen--a huge risk, by the way--it had 23k miles on it. The only mechanical problem it had was a small oil leak. Other than that, it lived up to its reputation as the highest-quality scooter available. I miss my Vespa dearly.

If you're a college-aged lady, you will get a ton of looks (for better or for worse).

Other pros: parking is a snap, gas costs are negligible, and it's a joy to ride on a pleasant spring day. It's also not so great to ride on a freezing cold or scalding hot day.

That said, if the price tag for a Vespa is a little steep, I hear Buddy scooters are very well-made. While I'll always be loyal to the Vespa for its design and stability, I would feel comfortable buying a Buddy based on reviews.

In my humble view this kind of scooter is too loud to be called a civilian one!) Though, one should take it into account!

Harley riders opinion should be irrelevant
by: Gary

Who cares what the Harley riders think? Other than two wheels, it's apples and oranges; they like what they like and visa-verse. Though I understand the appeal of raw power, personally am more intrigued by the convenience, nimbleness, and minimalist efficiency of a scooter, not to mention the friendlier image. Of all the two wheeled vehicle riders, the scooterest has the most civil image in the general public's eyes. In my view that's at least as respectable as the attention grabbing "individualist" tearing down the road on an excessively loud machine.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
