Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. This rapid growth has contributed to traffic jams, limited parking and a stressful commute. So now, more than ever, it makes sense to buy a Vespa scooter. A Vespa is the solution to all your transportation challenges.

My list of the top reasons you should buy a Vespa:

  • 70MPG: You can get up to 70 miles per gallon on a scooter. I fill up on $5 and I ride for two weeks.
  • Puts a smile on your face every time you ride
  • Park it on the sidewalk. Legally: If your scooter is 49ccs or less, you can park on the sidewalk.
  • We average 300 sunny days a year in Denver. When it’s sunny and dry, there’s no excuse to be in your car when you have a Vespa in the garage.
  • Great stress relief: Many customers tell me that their commute to work is happier on a Vespa.
  • Vespas are Italian. Everyone fantasizes about riding through Rome on a Vespa just like Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn did in “Roman Holiday.” Vespas evoke that feeling of “amore” every time you ride.
  • Easy to ride: Just twist and go. It’s completely different than riding a motorcycle. There’s no shifting, and the gas and brake are at your fingertips.
  • Very affordable to maintain: As long as you keep up on oil changes, make sure your chain is lubed and have the brakes checked regularly, you can ride your Vespa forever
  • Very affordable to purchase: We have models starting at $2,199.
  • Large comfortable seat made for two.
  • Lots of under-seat storage: You can store your helmet or other items under the seat, or you can accessorize with a top box for additional storage.
