Primavera

Select Model:

The youngest and most dynamic Vespa spirit, that has always driven the world's best-loved two-wheeler, returns to the model that uses it so well. The Vespa Primavera legend is back.

 

The Vespa story is one of continuous technical and style evolution that, right from the very first models, encouraged the ongoing development of the world's most famous and well-loved two-wheeler so it was always one step ahead of the social changes.

The Primavera steps forward as an important point of evolution in the Vespa story. During the design phase, every solution focused on increasing the level of comfort, safety and driving pleasure compared with the previous (and even recent) generations, continuing an evolution that, for almost 70 years and after more than 18 million vehicles sold over the five continents, makes Vespa the youngest and best-loved two-wheeler in the world.

The Primavera is a highly modern Vespa, designed with the elegance of an exclusive style but without renouncing the comfort aspect.

The central part, with its distinguishing omega shape, improves the riding position and gives the most modern Vespa a clear style feature taken from the story of legendary models; it rises like a “backbone” up to the base of the handlebar. The footrest is now narrower at the sides and, together with the reduced height of the saddle, allows riders of any height to easily rest their feet on the ground.

The extended taillight also helps to give the body a streamlined appearance. The alternating convex and concave lines of the bodywork respect the most classic Vespa standards but, thanks to a painstaking study of the reflections generated on them by the light, they now express a definite modern feel. Soft, rounded forms blend with the tension of sharp lines that give the entire vehicle an extra touch of vitality.

The turn indicators and LED daylight running lights are not excessively large, leaving space for the front shield; they are elegantly fitted flush with the bodywork, to avoid interfering with the clean lines of the Vespa Primavera.

The handlebar commands for the main functions have been inserted in true “cuffs” which, thanks to the chrome-plating, seem to be separated from the rest (also from an aesthetic viewpoint) and explicitly echo that element which acted as a gear/clutch unit on the left side of the handlebar on the most classic models.

Following in the footsteps of the Vespa tradition, the flat, two-seat saddle is now more comfortable and practical, with the double stitching that distinguishes refined Italian leatherwork. The rear part is surrounded by the passenger grab handle - made, of course, in the traditional and unmistakable chromium pipe.

The design of the 11" alloy wheel rims is entirely new and, despite respecting the traditional number of five spokes, manages to reinterpret a classic Vespa element.

All-new, more rigid body.

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.

The precise design has produced previously unseen levels of rigidity, but without compromising the weight of the structure.

The new position of the battery (in the central side member of the footrest) has increased the capacity of the helmet compartment to 16.6 litres (from 14.3 in the previous Vespa), further facilitating access to the engine for maintenance work (just be raising the helmet compartment).

A new engine mounting system reduces vibrations.

The engine is mounted on the body with a system of 2-position arms (only one position on the previous version) and uses a stop with double rubber absorption damper. As a result, the rider feels a notable reduction in vibrations in the various contact points (saddle, knobs and footrest).

New front suspension.

Despite maintaining the classic Vespa single arm suspension, the new Primavera has a completely redesigned system for reducing slide friction. The shock absorber is now fixed to the aluminium support that connects it to the wheel via a hinged pin giving far less friction and so greater comfort for the rider.

In the 150 cc versions, the Vespa Primavera is powered by an ultra-modern 3-valve engine, providing excellent performance and minimum consumption and emission levels.

The heart of the Vespa Primavera 150 cc is a 4-stroke single cylinder air-cooled engine with a 3-valve (2 intake and 1 exhaust) single overhead cam and electronic fuel injection. It was designed and built in the Pontedera plant - one of the most advanced research & development centres in the world - with the goal of increasing performance and fuel economy while lowering polluting emissions.

The cooling system was the object of careful analysis, even through thermo fluid dynamic simulations, in order to further improve performance and thereby obtaining a significant reduction in mechanical noise and absorbed power. The electronic injection system on the Vespa Primavera is entirely new. An ultra-modern and technologically advanced unit designed by Piaggio specifically for this latest Vespa model.
