Object of desire XVIII

My object of desire XVIII is Piaggios 2014 edition of the Vespa 50 Primavera. This Vespa is just made for scooting around town and as it's made on a robotic production line, the quality of manufacture is superb. Apparently the base monocoque structure is 150% more rigid than the previous model, the LX. Also, the wheelbase is longer, the wheels slightly larger (11" instead of 10") and the suspension is tweaked to give a more grown-up ride. I suppose I could go on and on about technical data, how economical it is to own and all that. But I'll just admit that I like it's lines so much that I just want one.
