With only a couple days left in 2014, we thought it’d be a great time to pause and look at just what you, the ScooterFile audience, have been looking at this year. So here are our Top Five most popular posts on ScooterFile this year:
Vespa gave us three all-new models for model year 2014. In this piece from Eric Almendral, we break down the differences between the new Primavera, the 946, and the LX-150 they replaced. This reader favorite is a treasure trove of specs and comparison data.
Most consumer products have to be produced to best serve the most common needs of the most people in the market possible. In the case of one-size-fits-all things like scooters, it’s usually one-size-fits-most. For the rest of us, we’re left to hunt down specific models that actually fit us. Well for the big and tall among us, look no further than this breakdown of specific models to consider and key concepts to keep in mind as you find the right ergonomic fit for your uncommon proportions.
The third big model from Vespa in 2014 was the Sprint — the replacement for the outgoing Vespa S — which rounded out the Vespa small-frame lineup along with the 946 and the Primavera. The Sprint’s angular looks made it one of the most highly-anticipated models of the year, along with its optional ABS. No wonder ScooterFile readers devoured this unveil story.
Easily the most outlandish yet tastefully artful custom scooters we’ve ever seen, The Guardian by Chris Cofitis is actually from 2013, but one look at this amazing bike and it’s no surprise it’s one of our most popular posts.
Ironically, our Top Five is rounded out by a review, not of a scooter, but of a small motorcycle. The 150cc SYM Wolf Classic is no scooter, but its chipper riding manners and light weight make it a motorcycle a scooterist can love. For those looking to dip their toes in the waters of motorcycling, the Wolf 150 might just be the world’s most perfect first motorcycle.
