City of Perth Council to discuss Footpath Parking for Scooters & Motorbikes

Support the Initiative to make Perth a more Liveable City

Allowing motorcycles and scooters to park on some footpaths would overcome serious inner-city parking shortages, according to two City of Perth councillors. They say footpaths on many streets are wide enough to accommodate motorbikes, just as they do in parts of Melbourne and some overseas cities.

While the current parking options are limited to pretty much the single motorcycle & scooter parking on Mounts Bay Rd, the proposed change would allow parking of scooters & motorcycles on footpaths within the city as long as there is no obstruction to pedestrians, loading zones or alfesco dining areas.

Vespa PX – Is it the end of it?

Euro 4 & ABS requirements in 2017 catch up with the PX and the GTS250

Incoming Euro 4 emission laws and ABS requirements in the European market seem to have sadly driven the final nail into the coffin for the most iconic of all Vespa, the PX. After 40 years of history, the PX is being phased out by the end of the year and whatever stock is left in Australia will be the last ones available.

Anniversary models on the way to Australia!

Starting in 1946 in Pontadera, Italy: This year Vespa looks back to successfully building the world’s most famous scooters for 70 years. To celebrate, a limited edition of the most popular VESPA models has been released.

In 70 years of history, and after more than 18 million units sold worldwide, Vespa has managed to unite people from distant and different cultures through a single passion: the scooter. The first truly global brand of mobility, the Vespa has interacted with social environments distant from each other, creating different cultural phenomena, characteristics of the reality in which it has been able to immerse itself to take on the role of distinctive protagonist. It has accompanied revolutions of customs, music and youth. It has stood at the side of human advancement. It made them soar during periods of economic prosperity.

Today, the Vespa still is the benchmark for any scooter on the road and its popularity is growing as [...]
