It’s a 2009 Vespa GTS250ie.
Estimate 15000mi. (Digital odometer doa) I have a used one coming.
It has been on the gulf coast it’s whole life. Corrosion issues. (Cosmetic)
Mechanically sound, everything works as designed.
I have a rack and top box coming.
Windshield ordered for winter.
Various missing screws.
Been on it today around local and downtown BHM. 64mpg today. Max speed 75mph. Comfortable at 60-65mph. It’s a HOOT!!!

Nice!  Everyone knows that white is the fastest color though. Especially if you add stripes!

Same bike.  It's a 2019 that I bought new two months ago. Decided it needed a little something, and ended up with the "tricolore" stripe.  It was one of the first "mods", second only to the MC AL sticker. The first photo is in front of Max Motorsports, still with 0 miles.

BTW, the same stripe would probably look pretty good on black too.  I'll see if I have a long enough piece left.

It turns out I do have a piece long enough to do the front of your leg shield.  I'm in Jasper.  PM me to arrange a time to meet up!  I should be around all weekend.
