I wish I could actually go to work on one of these.
This is the way to get around during warm weather. With no gears to change and better fuel economy than a Prius, it's the perfect mode of transportation. The top speed (if you're lucky) is around 45mph. In most states no tag is required due to the small 49.4cc. engine. There is storage under the seat and a hook on the front of the seat for hanging a plastic grocery bag.
Don't forget to wear a helmet, and look out for drivers of other vehicles.
If you want to see some vintage Vespas look for the movie "Quadraphenia". I think the spelling is correct, or at least close.
