@vikrantj

Congratulations on the Vespa. IMO only Yellow colour looks refreshing and superb on the scooter. Although the numbers are fewer on the roads, but slowly and surely the crowd is picking up. I see only yellow ones though.

Didnt you opt for the Saree guard? How's storage space below the seat? Where's the fuelling point located? Does Vespa provide extended warranty, did you opt if so?

Happy riding the retro scooter, drive safely.

Thanks

Didnt you opt for the Saree guard?

No I did not . Thought first try out and then put it if need arises

How's storage space below the seat?

I would say adequate. It will just about fit a big helmet.

Where's the fuelling point located?

It is located under the seat next to storage space.

Does Vespa provide extended warranty, did you opt if so?

I do not think so. I will check if there is any such warranty available.

Happy riding the retro scooter, drive safely.

I think chrome guards are prone to rusting. Seen a lot of them on other gearless scooters, as also my own HH Pleasure.

I have a 2009 Suzuki Access 125 and it does not have a spare tyre. However as per the A.S.S. provisions can be made to accommodate one.

Vespa LX125 has the best fuel tank capacity of all scooters. 8 litres.

@womanonwheels
Congrats. Suggests taking from the dealer itself. Some of the accessories looks well-made. Personally don't know much about the longevity.
You might get a variety of stuff outside. Its very difficult to judge the quality though.
