VESPAS ARE HIGHLY POPULAR YET LIKE ANY MOTOR VEHICLE THEY CAN STILL BE HIGHLY DANGEROUS SO WEAR A HELMET IF YOU RIDE ONE AND ALWAYS BUY INSURANCE.
Call me overprotective in my old age. I’ll take it with grace. But in all truth as a young man and even to my 30s I pushed the edge on motorbikes and sports cars taking risks that I would never in my life permit my daughters or sons to do.
A MULBERRY PROFESSIONAL DRIVER HERE GIVES US AN EXAMPLE OF A REDLINE SOMETHING THAT YOU SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ON A MOTORBIKE. YOU COULD POP A WHEELY AND LAND ON YOUR BACK IN AN INSTANT. THIS IS A STUNT AND NOT TO BE ATTEMPTED.
And knowing how youth has a way of making one feel eternal and impervious to death I would ask you to pray before driving any vehicle and ask parents to pray for their adrenaline junky kids, just like I and Audrey once were.
Audrey Hepburn here gives us a demonstration on how NOT to drive a VESPA.
The Vespa and its Kin like the MOPED are a far cry from the power of bikes and cars I have owned and driven, but still they are highly desirable, very affordable and an efficient means of transportation for many people around the world and like all motor vehicles they should be driven responsibly.

Vespa’s new limited edition Sei Giorni, built to pay tribute to the original 1951 Sport Sei Giorni, is reportedly the most powerful and technologically advanced Vespa to date.
Based on the Vespa GTS, the Sei Giorni is powered by a Euro4 compliant 300cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine that produces 21bhp at 7750rpm and 16ftlb of torque at 5000rpm, making it A2 licence-friendly.
The Sei Giorni receives its “most technically advanced Vespa ever” title because of a USB port inside the glovebox, LED daytime running lights and ABS (which is a requirement of Euro4).
