Today’s Times of India newspaper carries an advertisement by Piaggio asking for dealer applications for their Vespa brand of scooters which they have said is a way of life.  They have also asked interested parties to visit for further details.  So now we can be sure.  After a few decades the Vespa name will be back in India and this time with no Indian tie up.  The said advertisement features pictures of the Vespa 125cc scooter.
