Vespa celebrated 60 years in operation in 2005 and to commemorate the anniversary, Vespa introduced a new model, LX. The Vespa LX went on sale from March 2005, replacing the Vespa ET series. One of its key selling points was a Vespa tradition, a Vespa Girl complementing the new machine.
The LX has four different engines, all high-tech and Euro 2 compatible, ranging from a powerful 50cc two-stroke and a 50cc four-stroke to a 125 and 150cc four-stroke.
Roman Mica, a contributing editor to the Weekly Driver.com, ikes one tradition of Vespa more than its cool scooters. It’s the tradition of the Vespa Girls, a wonderful collection of beautiful women who have served as Vespa Girls through the years.
Mica has Vespa Girls polls, selecting the most attractive representative for the company. To view all of the Vespa Girls and to cast your vote, visit: www.tflcar.com.
