Vmoto Milan Video
This little classic has been on the market since the inception of Vmoto in Australia. Time to revisit the tiny classic at only $2090 + orc
The Vmoto Milan has something big going for it. Looks.... Its cheeky and cute, comes in a range of vibrant colours and with chrome in all the right places it looks as classic as they come.
The Vmoto Milan is a known quantity on the Australian scooter scene as its been on the market since the Vmoto brand was born. It's performance is zippy and quite sprightly and like most 2 strokes it will surprise many as you get to the other side of the traffic lights first.
The Milan is quite small in stature so for those that have spent a great deal of time on larger scooters getting used to the Milan takes a couple of turns but once you've adjusted it corners quite quickly and turns from side to side without fuss. For newcomers it will feel agile and quite easy to manage yet it is a small scooter, so for those of us that are a little longer it may just be a little too small. And its this size on the road that can be a handful when hitting large objects like potholes and some care and caution is required in this instance. But for general riding between suburbs or buzzing around the city streets the Milan is fine and does the job as intended.
The dash layout is easy to read and the switchgear all works as required. Fit and finish is quite good and storage is catered for by using under the seat as well as the colour matched top box so heaps of room here.
The two stroke motor wont suit everybody as it is quite noisy under acceleration, but the trade off is that zippy acceleration a two stroke gives. You also have the added need to fill the two stroke oil now and then but this is easily managed through an access panel on the side of the scooter. Again not a biggy but one of the things to look at whilst deciding on what scooter to buy.
The Vmoto Milan is a scooter that will satisfy short trips with ease all whilst looking like the best dressed scooter in town. Its economical, zippy and cute and if most of your trips are local and average 40 - 60 km/h then the Vmoto Milan is certainly one to look at.

Brendon Watson - Scooter HQ Southport Gold Coast
Retro cool at a budget price is what the Milan is about. It has a visual presence usually reserved for the Italians, the retro styling works & everything looks right which is why many refer to it as a little Vespa much
to the horror of the Vesparati.
The mechanical package used across the Vmoto 50cc range produces good power particularly when the light weight of the Milan is taken into account, they zip along quite well outperforming many a sports scooter in a straight line and leaving four stroke powered counterparts way behind.
The handling package is retro themed with leading link front suspension with drum brakes front & rear. While telescopic fork & disc brakes work better they just don't "look right" on a retro which is why both Vespa & Aprilia use leading link suspension on their premium 50cc retro models.
Under seat storage is huge complimented with top box & luggage hook enabling you to load up with plenty of shopping.
Milan owners generally couldn't care about technical specifications being more concerned that the helmet doesn't clash with the colour of the scooter than whether it's got EFI or ABS. It's about commuting around on a cool little retro for minimal outlay. If that's your requirement the Milan is a winner.
Likes - Cool budget retro - no naffness
