Ease of use is pretty much as good as it gets; everything works well, you can easily fit a full face helmet in the under seat storage area and there’s plenty of room in the front lockable glove box for various smaller items. At 110kg it can be a little hard to get on the centre stand but probably won’t be issue for most owners. If that fails there’s always the included side stand. Vespa have been making scooters for a long time and it really feels like they’re starting to hit their stride when it comes to ease of use.

Build quality is exceptional; the LX really does feel like it will last a lifetime. Unlike a lot of cheaper scooters you don’t feel like you’re buying a rapidly replaceable item with the LX. Really there isn’t much wrong with the LX 150.

Summing up; it comes down to a simple question. Are you concerned with the last few tenths of performance or do want something strong and reliable with a fantastic modern take on the classic Vespa styling? If you do then get out there and test ride the LX 150, it’s simply an all round solid modern scooter. Don’t even be concerned with the extra money it will cost over many of its competitors as it’s a Vespa and they really do hold their value.
