    Great news. I was worried that the Hoy Palloy and the hoy palloy buying them had dealt Scomadi the off. Good luck for 2020 chaps!

    The Series 1 styling with a 400cc capacity is a great addition that would have me trade in my Vespa GTV Sei Giorni for one. Traditionalists be damned. If Innocenti were still going today they would be producing similar machines in order to remain competitive in the “retro” market.

    As a motorcyclist, I am spoiled for choice of over a dozen quality, powerful retro inspired bikes from more than half a dozen marques but as a scooterist who wants old timer looks with a bit of ooomph, there is only the Hoy Palloy 300 or Vespa’s now paradoxically higher powered but non-motorway capable GTS 300 HPE. No thanks on both counts.

    To buy a Hoy Palloy I would need to lower my Union Flag and raise the Red Star of the People’s Republic of China, laughing in the face of British industry and intellectual property rights and to buy Piaggio now means being stuck behind that lorry spraying shit at you on a wet day on the big bad roads, because they made their latest, highest powered Vespa ever SLOWER than the last less powerful model. Huh??? WTF!
