The motor scooter (and also the new electric models) is famous in Europe. There is no bigger city, where you will NOT pass this vehicle while walking through the streets. The Vespa is especially loved among city dwellers, when downtown has little parking space and public transport is not too strong.
While walking thru Frankfurt, I passed by 5 different models - yet no electric ones, but I am sure, they will soon replace the gasoline driven models.
Some of these nice little scooters are real beauties and transport that italien style and swagger. Their speed goes up to 50 mph and the classic form protects your legs from wind and rain on that short run to the meeting on the other side of the city. A fan classic!
