Piaggio, now Europe's largest two wheeler manufacturer, rose to fame on the back of to the Vespa scooter introduced in 1946. The models described here were developed in the 1990s as an alternative to a concept that had fallen a bit behind the times. They initially reached a younger audience and nowadays are in widespread use as robust everyday vehicles. All of them offer automatic transmission and a low center of gravity thanks to their method of construction, respectable storage space, a stable chassis and a tubular steel frame with modular construction plastic body. Whereas the first two editions of this book only dealt with the basic models with drum brakes, this third edition also explains the technology behind the disc brake and four stroke models. All possible maintenance and repair work to the chassis, engine and drive is lavishly illustrated. The information offering is rounded off by coloured wiring diagrams, technical data as well tool and tyre tips.
