A very well written review Mr Blackwasp.
Infact we do know well you enjoy exclusively even in your four wheelers. Any plans of an upgrade to Aprilia?

Thank you for the quick response @blackwasp.

I apologize for the late response on my part as I am kind of caught up with unforseen health issues in the family.

Please do continue posting what you can and whenever you can as your posts are keenly followed by me.

In between running between hospitals am reading up on the 150 CC category of Vespa scooters and trying to understand pros and cons between CVT engines etc.

Saw the Aprilla scooter...did not like it on account of it being too 'skimpy' to carry off a brand image of Aprilla (at least the brand image I have if Aprilla anyways Some make like it and some may not.

Vespa 150s do look more rounded off than the Aprilla scooter.

But all in all a good attempt for scooter market to start showcasing 'sporty' scooters. I hope the companies that launch it do remember that most of us Indians grew up with 'scooter' standing in for reliability and servicability before anything else. IMO this baseline has not changed for the customers who opt for 'premium' scooters.

Am currently in Pune and on the sidelines trying to link up with Vespa owners to shortlist decent dealers etc.

Just got stumped with the health issues in the family. Hope all goes well!

Wish you and other owners of Vespa many safe miles ahead!

Taking this opportunity to thank the moderators of the forum for keeping it what it is. Its surprising how your efforts give a bit of 'exhaling' time to members who may be experiencing difficult situations in their lives or on the homefront in my case. Please don't read 'exhaling' in an incorrect or superficial way of acknowledging your efforts. I mean it in the most respectful of terms.

Mate, first of all praying for good health in your family. Thank you for your kind words.

Regarding scooters and CVT and geared bikes, if your use is in traffic, then CVT will be a joy to use. Do go through the latest thread by @Hemanth.anand. He has travelled quite a bit on different Vespas and he has shared his experience wonderfully.

Vespas can keep up with traffic and the 150cc ones will be even better. The SR 150 though a sporty scooter, lacks the looks of vespa. And being a retro scooter in a modern avatar, Vespas are recognised easily.

So far my maintenance is also well inside my expectations. Eagerly waiting to take her out. You can expect some updates around 1st sept.
