Remembering the white scooter parked outside their cinema when I was kid, I can never tell if it was a Vespa or a Lambretta, all I know that it was bulky, sexy white, and steel-bodied bike which ’til now has the vivid image glued in my overloaded brain. Visiting Vespa rekindled the spirit of the 70s specifically that of Mr. Bichara, how I envy the guy.
Modern Vespa scooters now are lean looking but still has the touch the made them world-famous — pressed steel monocoque chassis, 5-spoke die-cast alloy wheels, chrome retractable passenger footrests, and a classic floorboard design at price of $5,300.00 (roughly P 265,000.00). Aggh! It’ll remain to be a dream.
