The average GPS satnav is a boring rectangular affair that will stick out like a sore thumb if you tried to mount one to a scooter. But just because you drive a curvaceous classic Vespa doesn’t mean you won’t ever get lost, so TomTom has created an adorable circular satnav designed to complement your scooter.
Bikers beware– there’s a force on the streets that could or definitely will not destroy you. And it’s wearing a polo shirt tucked into khakis.
A little scooter isn’t exactly a vehicle that conveys a lot of status. That’s why you have to dress it up a little with something that really shows your position, like, say some big chromed mirrors. If you really want to do it right, like this guy, you could get a specially-trained dog-valet to ride with you, holding…
In Italian Vespa means wasp, and for 70 years, scooters like today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe candidate have been buzzing around cities all across the globe. Let’s see if this pink Piaggio also has a price that stings.
As you can imagine, most scooter owner/operators are very interested in having the best possible exhaust note from those 250cc monsters. With exhaust pipe diameters about the size of an average drinking straw (possible boba-sized) this can be tricky.
Vespa has unlocked a market secret: people who want to get around on a super small motorcycle want it to look cute. That’s why “Vespa” is the only brand of scooter everyone’s heard of.

The 1980s were a weird time, what with its big hair and even bigger rock 'n' roll, but one of its greatest quirks was its pure, unbridled commercialism. People think Wall Street created an era, but that film was more a product of its time. And who better to sell a product from these times, than Lou Reed?
When a Nissan Skyline GTS-T lines up with a mobility scooter, what's gonna be faster? The mobility scooter of course!
Watch this video to the end. You will not believe how bad this scooter rider is.
