2015 VESPA PRIMAVERA 150ie 3v
Milage: 1000 - 5000 Miles
Likes: Looks nice, classic design with modern tech
Dislikes:
Expensive, product not standard, Asian version differ slightly with Western version

Review:
Beautiful solid bike, although mileage did not come close to advertised, I only get close to 30 km per liter on my new Primavera. Maybe due to the break-in period. The Asian version that is made in Vietnam did not come with the new front suspension with the lower shock having pivot pin like the western version, yet they put the new front suspension on their Sprint model, why? The Asian version also did not come with the remote switch for opening the saddle were as the Western version do. I think Piaggio should standardize all of Vespa models and not skimp on the Asian models.


2015 VESPA PRIMAVERA 50
Milage: 1000 - 5000 Miles
Likes: Looks great and milage is in the high 90’s
Dislikes:
Front suspension! The single side shock causes the scooter to shake if you take on hand off the bars.

Review:
Wife and I bought two at the same time. Hers has more power than mine by quite a bit but top speed is the same if I get down and out of the wind.

The biggest things I dislike about the Vespa is the noise the starters make and also the engine noise. Our friends has two Honda
Ruckus and they start very quiet and the engine is smooth and quiet. But we beat them in top speed :-)

To continue the front suspension is really bad. The front end shakes and it you take one hand off the bar (the left one else you lose throttle) the handlebars shake to a point where it's dangerous. If you hit a bump in a turn there is no suspension to take anything up and you will have to hang on tight or the bar will come out of your hand.”



2015 VESPA PRIMAVERA 155cc 3V
Milage: 1000 - 5000 Miles
Likes: Refined workmanship & detail in body parts, excellent handling, smooth take-off.
Dislikes:
Accessory directions were poor!

Review:
2,500 miles in city traffic of a 550,000 metropolitan area. I previously had a Yamaha 50 and this is night and day difference. Handling is superb. I’m amazed at how well the shocks work! The front end suspension is nothing short of remarkable. I still look at the set-up in awe. Gas milage is about mid 90 mpg, but I run non-ethanol fuel in it.

My other ride is a 1977 R-100s BMW roadster and I’ve been riding for 50 years. I also use to own a Lambretta 125 scooter. Who knew that a Vespa was as refined as it is? But that kinda perfection does not come cheap. I paid $3,500 to purchase a new, left-over 2015 scooter and put about $1500 in accessories on it including racks, led signal system (from Scooterwest), tuned exhaust and a lowering bracket! I love this scooter and ride it in the northwest 9 months outta the year!”
