the scomadi is an ugly and unreconciled design. its like feeding a supermodel on pies for 5 years and then giving her a Chanel outfit from 1970, sorry,it dont fit.
they should have just designed it from scratch, a great engineering excercise but not a great design one. i would bang a bird with a big arse and i would ride a GTS for that reason. i ride a scooter for style above power. An early GS150 is so beautiful but of its era. im glad that piaggio didnt just stuff a 4 stroke motor in one. they design from scratch, just wish the designer of modern vespas wasnt a blind monkey with serious brain injuries. they are wonderfully engineered, sound crap and really just tarted up versions of the Skipper. how any Piaggio executive could walk around the museum in Pontedera and feel proud of the 2016 range is beyond me. :cry:
maybe scomadi like fat birds with lots of expensive italian makeup who knows?. :D

Compare a GTS side by side with a Cosa. They're remarkably similar. (Not that that's a good thing)

I'm coming round to the cosa

Would definitely have a Scomadi rather than a GTS.
