Hey all;


I need help identifying a moped/large scooter I saw on the expressway today. Please help my mind is going in circles.
I will try to describe it ,ask other questions later.

From the rear it has 6 taillights in a downward v shape to the ground.
3-4 lights across the rear. Lots of bodywork, and could not see the exhaust except for the tip. You sit on it like a honda scooter, with your legs in front of you. He was also going about 75-80 mph. fairly large, sort of looked italian.
Maybe like an Aprilla. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

I though it might be one of THESE - "V" for Vectrix

I got to sit on one and play with it at the San Mateo show. It's highway legal and goes about 65 miles on a charge. Has reverse too, just roll forward on the throttle.

Could only find one pic or the rear, with Prince Charles of course:)

Doesn't have a V tail light...

Here is a Piaggio Xevo 400 that has a V shaped tail light display.

Nope. But the right idea.
It was about the size of of the larger honda scooter (250?). The "V" is formed by ROUND seperate lights. I was taking my normal exit when I came upon this vehicle. The only other thing is he was sitting on it with feet up front like a regular scooter.
A Challenge. whoa I love a challenge.
