When Piaggio launched their ‘Nuova Linea’ of Vespa scooters in 1977 I wonder if anybody at the Italian factory in Pontedera ever considered that 40 years later we would finally say goodbye to it?
I’ve had few myself over the years, 125, 150 and 200cc versions, ridden thousands of miles through numerous countries on them too. In my mind the P-range is one of the best Vespa scooters of all times, but what do you think?
