Previous motorcycleVespa ET4

Faults:

Hard to start using the electric starter, needs to assisted by the choke and kick start in the morning.

Cracking sound on gear changes (probably I'm just new to a manual shifting Vespa, my former bike was a ET4).

Difficulty to shift to 1st gear especially from a complete stop in the traffic lights.

General Comments:

This scooter has a touch of heritage, and history with it, its classic retro look really attracts attention in this part of the world (Philippines). I acquired it new from Euromotors.

A head turner - the sounds of the Sixties in the 21st Century setting.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
