I may still be a really fucking pokey, back of the group rider (especially off the line--how do you guys get going so fast?)
It's the Stellas, as contrasted with the Vespa PX - it's new, but it's still a Vespa. You could have the whole vintage experience, if only it dropped some pieces occasionally.
Nah, I'm just pushing the vintage buttons there. It's all about being broken in - a broken-in bike accelerates much more freely. Though I *have* heard that the reed-valve induction on the Stella does make it a little zippier off the line than the rotary induction on the PX150. That might just be a myth though. And besides, the paint on the PX sure beats the shit out of the Stella paint...

Yeah my PX was pretty slow stock too. Even once it was getting worn in, I was still getting beat off the line by Stellas and at the top end too. I think doing something simple like getting a stock exhaust (if you aren't particularly attached to mother nature) could make a difference. Heck just taking that catalyst off prolly dropped 40 lbs from the scooter.
