Vespa Scooter Insurance

Vespa scooters, a subsidiary line of Piaggio, have been in production in Italy since 1946 and have become known for their aeronautically inspired iconic design, encased engine and the reliability that this delivers.  Their name is derived from the word "wasp" in Italian after it was said that their engine note resembled the high pitched buzz of the insect.

In the 1990s the brand introduced the ET model range which fast became a best seller due to its improved aerodynamics and automatic gearbox.  The model offers engines ranging from 2 stroke 50cc to 4 stroke 150cc and remains a popular choice with enthusiasts today.

Whatever your reason for purchasing a Vespa you're sure to want to minimise running costs and motorcycle insurance is an area that can be expensive if you're not armed with the facts.  Here are some tips to help you save on your  scooter insurance:

  • Less is more -  keeping your mileage as low as possible will help to reduce the cost of your policy.
  • Where you store your scooter -  use of a locked garage will reduce the risk of theft and should reduce the price of your premium.
  • Monthly or yearly payments - paying a lump sum to cover the year can save money over paying monthly with added interest on some policies.
