2009 Vespa LX150
Congestion is for everyone else. Zip through traffic with a low center of gravity and a larger front wheel (11″ front-10″ back), which provides more control and agility. And your posture has never looked better. The ergonomically-designed seat allows for your legs and arms to be held at correct angles and your torso straight, for a comfortable ride.
The Vespa LX is offered in a 50CC and a roaring 150CC version. So take life at the speed you want. The LX 150 lets you do an impressive highway like 59 mph to get you where you want to go, fast.
Brake at a red light with confidence, with the LX’s advanced mixed-type braking system. The front has a 7.8″ diameter disc, with hydraulic linkage and a dual opposed piston hydraulic caliper. The back has a 4.3″ diameter drum with mechanical linkage.
Getting around town never looked this good!
