2k: Who You Callin A Wasp? 2006 Vespa LX

Continuing our theme of cheap and sensible motoring without a silly gear lever, brings us to this next sophisticated urban runabout.  If you are looking to combine out air excitement, fuel sipping fun, and easy city parking, it doesn’t get much better than a Vespa built by Italian mega conglomerate Piaggio & C. SpA. Find this 2006 Vespa LX scooter offered for $2,800 in Beverly Hills, CA via craigslist.

This Vespa is looks nicely presented in its original shade of Pepto Italiano (Italian Pink!), with gun metal rims and slate seat cover.  Vroom vroom!

Check out that sporty 90 mph speedometer!  Sure, the top half of that gauge is about as useful as the 6th digit on a Renault Fuego’s odometer, but that fuel gauge will never move because this thing is super efficient when cruising.
