EFI Takes Over

Motorcycle.com reports the 125 and 150cc engines found in Vespa LXs and Ss (and presumably any other Piaggio Group scooter that uses those engines) will trade their carburetors for electronic fuel injection.

No surprise, really. Emissions standards around the globe are getting tougher, and the only way to meet them is to precisely monitor the amount of fuel going into the combustion chamber. EFI (or if you prefer, inienzione elettronica) is how you do that.

Of course, the added bonus is more torque and lower fuel consumption. If this means you can get an LX 150i.e. in orange, so much the better…
