I know one thing is for sure, I bet I get a lot more waves from the Harley riders I think 2 out of 8 might've waved tonight on my way home from work. I don't even try anymore, if anything I raise two fingers and that's it.

A lot of their parts come from Spain too. The dealership I used to work at sells Vento Scooters.

The only thing I like about their scooters, other than their sporty styling, is that when you order a part from them you get the entire assembly. So rather than each miniscule part having its own number you just order the entire assembly and swap out the whole unit. It's a lot easier and keeps resale up. For example, if you break a turn signal you don't have to order the exact piece that needs to be replaced (lens, stalk, bulb, screw, clamp, washer, nut, etc), you just order the entire part, body panel and all, and swap everything out. Simple. If only the big manufacturers did this too.

However, their scooters don't run as reliably as Yamaha or Honda scooters.
