Who would pay 4 grand for a dinky scooter when you can get a real motorcycle for so much less? No wonder Vespa is going the "boutique" route to market it.

I took a vacation to Europe this summer, and the scooters were everywhere, especially in Rome. There, the superior maneuverability of scooters let riders slice through traffic like a fork through lasagne. But the ones who were really in command were riding Yamaha Majesty 250's and Suzuki Burgman 400's -- big luxo sleds with real power. The poor saps on the smaller ones always looked a little anxious, afraid they were going to get run over from behind by diesel busses and Fiat taxis. "La Dolce Vita" is cool, all right, but only if you have some power.

Good luck Vespa; you'll need it.
