Not sure how I missed this, but there’s a new Vespa coming out in Europe at the end of March. The Vespa Granturismo looks like a cross bewteen an ET4, a P200, and a Cosa, and it has front/rear discs, and a liquid-cooled 4-valve 4-stroke engine. Not too shabby, especially the (finally!) 200cc model. No news on USA availabilty, but it took us five years to get ET4s. Piaggio is proud to point out that it’s the 38th Vespa model (though 28 of those are variations on the Vespa PK50) and the first of the new millenium, which started a few years ago.

As Ann pointed out last week, the IPO starts this Friday here in Chicago. There’s some good stuff going on there, which isn’t surprising as there are something like 160 bands. Hey! M.O.T.O. are still around?
nh-scooters.com continues to interview people so I don’t have to: this time it’s Darby Gippert of Cycle World, importers of Peugeot scooters. They have 130 dealers? Have they sold 130 scooters? I have no idea how they’re getting these things past DOT, but they’re great scooters so I ain’t gonna say anything.
It’s about time. Lets see if it gets off the ground.
