More Four Stroke Vespa PX Rumblings

July 29, 2011

SIP Scooter Shop reports that they have a reliable source confirming that Vespa will be showing off their new 4-stroke powered PX series scooter at the upcoming EICMA show in Milan this Fall. The Genuine Scooter Company LML-made Stella 4-Stroke has recently made it to dealers around the country. But will the new PX come back to America? Would current Vespa dealers want it? One thing that many will be interested in is the design of the engine. Will it be unlike the LML and fit into the classic Vespa frame?

File it all under RUMOR until we see it rolling around Rome.

    FWIW, I’ve heard from a reader that the 4-stroke LML Star 200 (aka-someday-the Stella 200) is super-popular in Italy, so other would-be European dealers can’t get any until Italian demand is fulfilled. This, plus our previous story about the desire to target the Indian market, sure makes it sound like we won’t see any in the US for some time, presumably Genuine is OK with that, assuming they have a stock of 150 4–strokes to sell in the meantime.

    But that begs the question, if Piaggio is back on the 4-stroke bandwagon BECAUSE of the success of the Star, would it even make sense to unveil a 150cc 2-stroke PX. The answer is “No, it sure wouldn’t.” But it’s Piaggio. We’ll see.
