    Ist Problem sort of

    so at 2600 miles the Hyper blew its headlight bulb !

    No big deal except

    what a fucking job it is to change the bloody thing. Basically you have to dismantle the whole front end that has some very difficult to get at bolts / screws

    Took the best part of an hour in the garage. I would not like to think that i was having to do it at the side of the road in the dark and rain !

    Italian charisma eh
    Just a Prospect at the moment

    It's not a real Vespa, they have a gear change on the left hand handlebar an it's easy to change the headlamp bulb

    Why fuck about with shit like that? Decent manufacturers like KTM give you free recovery so if it spews a headlight bulb you just get it recovered and drink coffee while someone else does the work.
