Like "To Bee or not to Bee", a Wasp or not a Wasp.

As SVG says, there are a number of Piaggio models which are a hybrid of the Vespa engine & transmission suspended in a tubular steel frame and telescopic forks, and covered with cheap-to-replace plastic panels. These scooters are about half the price of the Vespa equivalents. What price the Brand name, eh?
