There is a classic concept that comes from Ancient Rome that says: “what is beautiful must be useful and what is useful must be beautiful”.
This is a maxim that fits Soulful Bikes’ philosophy. Each of our motorbikes must not only overflow with charisma and personality but must also be functional.
Mentioning Rome again, it was the inspiration for one of the most iconic models in our fleet, the Vespa! Vespa is a magical name that makes us dream of escape and freedom, whether in the city or on the long roads through the countryside and the beach.
It is without a doubt the most beautiful scooter on the market, and for those who want to ride the Algarve roads, the Vespa is indeed a very useful motorcycle.
It starts being useful due to its engine and performance. The 125cc engine is powerful and makes the Vespa glide elegantly along the roads of the Algarvian Mountains. The secret of agility is weight. Because it has an aluminium body and weighs only 150kg, the Vespa is a very easy bike to maneuver, even when carrying a load.
Yes! Because another advantage of Vespa is being able to carry 11kg of luggage. It is more than what we can take in an airplane as cabin luggage. An airplane cannot take us to the Fluvial Beach of Alcoutim or to the Natural Pool of Seiceira, but Vespa can! In style and without the need of a motorcycle license.
And it's not worth talking about utility without talking about sophistication. The Vespa is timeless but it is also sophisticated, especially in terms of energy. If you ride a Vespa you have no excuse to run out of battery in your smartphone because it has a USB socket. You don't have to worry about autonomy either, because the start-stop system and efficient fuel management allow you to get far!
