Piaggio Group has agreed on a worldwide four-year “technical, commercial, sport, and communication cooperation agreement a technical, commercial, sport and communication co-operation deal with ENI, manufacturers of Agip oils. In short, Agip products will be recommended and sold by Piaggio (and Aprilia, Gilera, Derbi, and Moto Guzzi) dealers worldwide, and and Agip will supply specialty fuels and lubricants for Aprilia, Gilera and Derbi race teams. Thanks to Ryetronics for the story.
CTV (with the technological help of ABC, because Canadian TV is apparently broadcast in black and white) is giving away a Vespa PX150 as part of their Juno awards shenanigans. If you think it’s worth sitting through any music awards show, let alone one with performances by The Guess Who and 54/40, to win a Vespa, go for it. Note: Events Halifax, one of the sponsors, has an awesome logo.
Adding fuel to the fire (which is how he broke my chiminea) Rob Hodge points out that The Scooter Lounge has posted a history of LML’s relationship with Piaggio and a comparison chart of the two scooters. According to the chart, the only plus of the PX is the larger brake disc, but then again, they (and Hodge) sell Stellas. The PXes are on the street now, so I’m sure some more hands-on comparisons will start springing up.
