Driving training at the beginning of the motorbike season
At the beginning of the Spring/Summer 2014 season, new motorcycles such as the Vespa Primavera were launched in Vienna. The scooter is the re-edition of Piaggio's 1960s Vespa combined with elements of Vespa 946 (closer review on vespa.com) and evokes the desire to escape from the urban car traffic and its bothersome search for a parking place.
Even when such scooters look nice, comfortable, handsome and easy to drive, they are motorcycles and achieve the same (allowed) speed (125ccm up to 100km/h on urban highways) like other motorized road users in the city. Fashionoffice's advice: start the season with a driving training! In Austria for example, ÖAMTC offers such 'Warm Ups'.
