Breaking News: Vespa Beaumont Opens

Sunday, February 22, 2009

(Updated: 2/23/09)

The wait is finally over!  Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the newest scooter store in Golden Triangle, Vespa Beaumont.

Seeing is believing

Actually the first shipment of ten scooters quietly arrived last Wednesday and they currently occupy a third of the showroom floor at Cowboy Polaris, sandwiched in between Cowboy Honda and Cowboy Harley by I-10 and College Street.  I know it’s hard to tell that it’s a Vespa store because of the lack of an exterior signage; but believe me, the scooters are there.  

A lovely LX150 awaits you

(Peeping in) I saw an MP3 250 (Cortina Gray), an MP3 500 (Passion Red), a Fly 50 (Midnight Blue), two S’s (a Shiny Black and a Dragon Red), a LX (Dragon Red), a GTS (Cortina Gray)…still can’t believe my eyes.  Trust me, they’re there.  Go check them out for yourselves at Vespa Beaumont.–Lorenzo

Update (2/23/09):

On Monday, I paid a proper visit to Vespa Beaumont and had a chance to speak with Mr. Ty Yates, store manager, and Mr. Jason Jeanjaquet about the new arrivals and their future plans.  Make sure to come by Vespa Beaumont for a visit this Saturday at 10 am and join us for a ride after as well as lunch at Hamburger Depot.  Until then, here are some more shots of the new store and its line-up of scooters, this time taken from inside the store.–Lorenzo

    YIPPEEEEE! We won’t have to trudge (or is it trailer?) our scooters to Houston for service. Maybe a lot more folks will jump on the scooter express and enjoy scootering like the rest of us!

    Ceased operation. Vespa sign to be replaced by Victory sign. Sad day in Beaumont, indeed.
