Autoweek Loves Vespa
Just discovered an article on the new Vespas in the November 19 2001 issue of Autoweek (www.autoweek.com). The author, Jeff Sabatini, really gets it and he writes a good review:

"When you go to your nearest Vespa 'boutique,' ignore importer Piaggio USA's marketing strategy that sells these motobikes as if they are designer clothes, walk past the 50-cc ET2, and buy the 150-cc ET4. Tear off the modern-looking mirrors to replace them with multiple chromed units, and be happy .... it's not like there's a lack of substance here, just a heck of a lot of style, which is what you want in the first place."
You can read the rest of this really great article online but they'll ask for an email address and password. Use "firstname.lastname@example.org" and "joejoe" to access.
