It’s The New Primavera

It's The New Primavera

VESPA PRIMAVERA HOW IT’S MADE

A radically new design, a new body in steel, new sizes, still agile but even more stable and comfortable thanks to its new 11″ wheels, Vespa Primavera is reborn, powered by ultra modern and ecological 50 2t, 50 4t, 125 3v and 150 3v engines.

Thanks to the experience gained with the Vespa 946 project, the Piaggio style centre has carried out important, innovative work on the surfaces and sections of the bodywork, coming up with assertive design features that, without betraying the flowing form that every Vespa must have, still manage to add a new touch of up-to-date sparkle.

The steel sheet bodywork, that also acts as a support, is the element that makes the Vespa stand out from every other scooter in the world. The Vespa Primavera body is completely new, although it maintains a loyalty to a unique construction philosophy and consists of pressed, welded parts.

TECH POWER

The technology of the Vespa Primavera has been developed for a better world. Compared with current «small body» models, it marks a step forward, which extends to technological content and construction quality

GLOBAL STYLE

The return of the Primavera, designed by future! The distinguishing feature is the new body, with a host of new features and even greater end quality. More space between the handlebar and the saddle, and the new saddle height for improved contact with the ground, make for even greater comfort for both rider and passenger.

SAFETY FIRST

Technology means little unless it protects the rider. Safety is a key concern for the Vespa Primavera, with more than enhanced riding pleasure and comfort: 11” wheels, a new front suspension with the shock damper hinged to the base, led daylight running lights.
