Cute Cruiser: Win a Vespa

Admit it…you’ve always wanted a Vespa. They’re zippy, compact and European — not to mention the epitome of vintage cool. What’s not to love?

The Piaggio Group, maker of these stylish motorbikes for more than 60 years, is pleased to offer an exciting new contest. Between now and May 29th, one lucky Facebook user will be rewarded with a brand new Vespa S-50 4V every week.

The rules are simple — and rather fun, as well. Entrants are invited to visit their local Vespa dealership, and have a photo taken of them atop a Vespa scooter of their choice while wearing a helmet. Then, they must upload the image to Submissions guidelines can be found by clicking on the “Win a Vespa Photo Contest” tab.

Helmet safety is a hallmark of the Vespa company. In addition to the photo contest, the company is also offering a special promotion from now until April 30. Any motorist that purchases a new Vespa or Piaggio scooter will receive a complimentary helmet, currently valued at $377.

To all the contest winners, and any other Seattleite who chooses to cruise around on two wheels: ride safe this summer!
