Your answer is instant and very energetic from theprinciple, something that also helps its light chassis and thereduced overall weight of the whole. This also facilitatesmuch maneuverability when dodging cars or move withlooseness between traffic early in the morning. Soundpropeller is substantially identical to the above with a toneperhaps more bronco that still find pleasing to the ear.
I enter highway with the preconceived idea that ifI have luck get to the 100 km / h And I stumbled uponThe surprise. That limit is easily manageable and can evenovercome being a user of average height like me (do not get to 1.80)and unaccompanied. If you add to this that the gap ispro, it is quite simple you reach the border120. If wearing a companion, the speed decreasesconsiderably and it will be difficult to pass 92-93 km / h instraight line. However, these cruises are not for Vespa125 Spring.
With regard to brakes and behaviorsuspension, It notes that Vespa is always looking for somebalance in what refers to dynamic behavior. So muchfront and rear hydraulic monoamortiguadores are sufficientalthough they are somewhat fair when making changesdirection faster than normal. The front discbrake behaves outstandingly while the brakedrum is sufficient for short journeys and around thecity. To stop the bike at high speed is better to resortalways the front brake. On the other hand, ABS it worksfreckle well but be somewhat intrusive and also emits a sound somethingunpleasant when it comes into operation.

The public demanded scooters as Vespa Primavera125 do not mind paying the "extra" that supposed be aItalian saddle instead of a high-wheel scooter performanceSimilar and which is price is quite cheaper. Scooter sellsgood behavior for city driving and perform someSporadic exit the suburbs, but what really sells isbrand and attraction. That's why Vespa isknown in the world of two wheels and that DNA is maintainedwithout any variation in 125 70th Anniversary Spring weHe has been tested. To all this is added to a revised enginemy taste it works better and is more efficient. With consumptionwe do us during the week that we had, we camea range of around 290km, a good recordconsidering that 80% of the route is performed also oncity, traffic jams and without passing through 60 km / h.
