The vast majority of my scooter/vespa friends are male and I feel that I may have left some of my female readers out in the cold with most of my recent blog posts. However today I saw a pink Vespa parked up outside my work and it reminded me to write a blog post to the female Vespa riders are out there. According to the New York Times ” Forty percent of new (Vespa) buyers are women.”
This blog post is aimed at this 40%
- A good place to start getting ideas about prices for a your pink vespa is
- Read the blog Girlbike.com This site has tons of information aimed at female vespa/motorcyle riders – Keep this one bookmarked
- Send your pictures/stories to me and I will post it on this blog.
Sorry for the lack of content but I think I still have a lot to learn about the female Vespa riders out there.
I think it’s time I make my way over to Girlbike.com
Also if you are desperate to get your hands on a Pink Vespa these guys are selling some “cheap” scooters that people might be interested (sorry but this deal is only available for the UK – sorry guys.)
awwwww it’s soooo prettyyyyyy! I want one!!! I just have to wait a little till my bank account allows it. But I definitely want one! 🙂
i have a pink vespa 150m cc and LOVE it… Jersey.scooter girls ride on!!
What is the RRP for the pink vespa?
I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this post since my site Girlbike was so prominently mentioned! I found it while wandering around searching for posts about pink scooters after I launched a site about… you guessed it… pink scooters (scootpink.com). I hope you’ll submit your pink Vespa photo to the site, and maybe it will cause some more controversy. 🙂 And if you miss girlbike, you can find all its content over at scooterfix.com.
Speaking of girls and scooters. There is a cool new website with reflective in all colors. The vests are made for scootering. Check it out:
If you want to learn more about female scooterists, you might want to check out http://www.scooterdiva.com.
You will find that there are more to scooter girls than pretty pastel colors 🙂
LOL, sorry Delrond for starting a hubub over your post. I guess the way you phrased it just made me think (from experience) “Uh oh, wait ’till female scooterists see this.” Here in NYC, I’m sure we do have some pink scooter riders who fit the stereotype (nothing wrong with that), but there are at least as many cool, tough, happenin’ women who prefer, shall we say, a more urban style and who know how to repair their vintage (or modern) bikes on the fly. No worries, scootering is partially about the freedom to express one’s individuality whether it is colored pink OR black. keep on bloggin’!
It seems this blog post has been discussed at http://www.nyscooterclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6196

Firstly by using the title and picture of the Pink Vespa I was not trying to generalise all female scooter riders. Although when I re-read the post i can understand how many take that to be the meaning.
It was just that seeing a pink vespa reminded me about how many female vespa riders are out there.
I hope i have not offended anyone by using the pink vespa imagery and as i stated in the blog I have a lot to learn about female vespa riders.
as aawatters stated: “perhaps the first thing he should realize is that female scooterists don’t all ride pink scooters or even in dresses and skirts. We are often disguised in jeans, a jacket and a helmet. ”
I’ll keep an eye out for all you disguised female riders when i next stop at the lights!
