Vespa LX 150ie / LXV 150ie / LX 50 4V
Vespa’s LX (the Roman numeral for 60) models date back to 2006, the year the Italian scooter builder celebrated its 60th year in business. Eight years later, the festivities continue to roll as the wasp-shaped two-wheelers still provide an economical mode of transportation that is rich in both heritage and style. The LX models have fuel injection, and the LX 150 will nudge 60 mph and should deliver 72 mpg when ridden with a frugal throttle hand. Also available: A vintage-look LXV version of the 150 can be had for $1,000 more; the LX so is fundamentally the same scooter but powered by a 49cc engine and is $1,200 less expensive.
