VESPA PRIMAVERA SEAN WOTHERSPOON. VESPA PRIMAVERA SEAN WOTHERSPOON MAKES ITS WORLD DÉBUT AT EICMA. THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN ONE OF THE MOST CREATIVE AND INFLUENTIAL DESIGNERS AND THE BRAND SYMBOLIC OF ITALIAN STYLE COMES TO FRUITION WITH A SPECIAL SERIES OF VESPAS. ALSO INTRODUCING AN EXCLUSIVE VESPA HELMET AND CAPSULE CLOTHING COLLECTION, MARKED BY AN ECLECTIC USE OF COLOUR AND A VINTAGE SPIRIT BROUGHT RIGHT UP TO DATE BY WOTHERSPOON. Vespa Primavera Sean Wotherspoon is a special edition that expresses all the creative energy linking Vespa and Sean Wotherspoon, one of the most creative and influential designers on the American landscape. Sean takes the steel body of Vespa Primavera and creates a new style dedicated to young urban tribes, but one that can also appeal to a wider audience.
Sean gives Vespa style elements a vintage contemporary twist in what is his trademark manner. He does this by drawing on his love of everything old school, using a kaleidoscopic mix&match approach rooted in the '80s and '90s. The livery stands out for its explosion of colour, the dominant shades of yellow, red, dark green and aquamarine showcased with flamboyant irreverence.
There is also scope for a blend of materials including metal, plastic, velvet and rubber. But Sean Wotherspoon's work extends beyond the Vespa Primavera. Together with the dedicated helmet, he has created a capsule collection of streetwear clothing, consisting of four T-shirts and a modern tracksuit.

VESPA PRIMAVERA 125 (RED). THE PIAGGIO GROUP AND (RED) TOGETHER AGAIN. VESPA PRIMAVERA WEARS RED IN SUPPORT OF THE GLOBAL FUND. For the fourth consecutive year, the Piaggio Group renews its partnership with (RED) by presenting the new Vespa Primavera 125 (RED) project. Millions of people and the world's most iconic brands come together with (RED) to participate in an enormous challenge, to definitively beat illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Since its foundation in 2006, the work of Bono and Bobby Shriver, (RED) has contributed more than 500 million USD to the Global Fund for the fight against AIDS.
This year, the star of this charity initiative, such an international success since its birth in 2016 thanks to the iconic status and popularity of the partners involved, is Vespa Primavera, a true style icon and a legendary name in the Vespa story. Vespa Primavera (RED) is powered by a modern 125 cc four-stroke single cylinder i-get engine, air cooled and equipped with electronic injection and 3 valve distribution. A remarkably environmentally friendly engine capable of performance at the top of its category. Values that, combined with the proverbial light weight typical of all Vespas, make the Vespa “small body” particularly lively both in city traffic conditions and on the open road.
The Vespa Primavera 125 (RED) special has its entire steel chassis painted in the characteristic Red Dragon colour, which elegantly envelopes the livery as well as adorning the wheel rims, making for a truly unique and immediately recognisable model. Further enhancing this version is the essential, iconic Vespa (RED) logo, that, flanking the Piaggio Group "shield" positioned on the unique Primavera tie, adorns the front shield with its contrasting white signature. Attention goes beyond the pure aesthetics though, to focus on design details that are typically Made in Italy. The comfortable, ergonomic Vespa Primavera (RED) seat is created in nubuck leather, borrowed from the Vespa 946 – the model voted aesthetically and technologically perfect from which Vespa Primavera (RED) inherits its prized exclusivity.

VESPA RACING SIXTIES. THE ULTIMATE IN ELEGANT SPORTS STYLE LIVES ON WITH VESPA SPRINT AND GTS SUPER. VESPA RACING SIXTIES IS A SPECIAL SERIES INSPIRED BY THE RACING WORLD'S MOST CLASSIC AND EVOCATIVE AESTHETIC. Vespa Racing Sixties is a special series inspired by the most classic and captivating of racing aesthetics. Inspiration comes from the gentlemen riders’ races of the '60s, a world in which freedom of expression extended as far as vehicle customisation.
With the gritty Vespa Sprint (with 50, 125 and 150 cc engine capacity) and Vespa GTS Super (with 125 and 300 cc engine capacity), the new Racing Sixties present innovative graphics that contrast with the body. Two aesthetic proposals that stand out for their elegant sportiness, the first (yellow and green) offering a more classic look and the second (red and white) orientated more towards a dynamic, fresh and modern mood.
Vespa Sprint and Vespa GTS Super Racing Sixties shed their classic chrome plating to give way to the gold metallic finish of the wheel rims, and gain exclusivity and prestige thanks to the new seat in soft, velvety nubuck, coated in PVC to protect in bad weather and complete with artisan-style stitching.
VESPA ELETTRICA. SILENT, CONNECTED, CUSTOMISABLE. THE BEST TECHNOLOGY HAS NEVER BEEN SO COOL. ALL THE VALUES OF VESPA COME TOGETHER IN VESPA ELETTRICA. EICMA 2019 SEES THE DEBUT OF THE NEW 70 KM/H VERSION.
Faithful to its role as innovator, Vespa Elettrica continues to evolve and is presented at EICMA in its new 70 km/h version, which flanks the original 45 km/h version, created mainly for urban use and so homologated as a moped.
The heightened performance offered by Vespa Elettrica 70 km/h (homologated as a motorcycle) is the result of Piaggio Group experience with the Power Unit and lithium ion battery and the optimisation of all its components. The increased performance does not affect the acceleration typical of Vespa Elettrica while its range remains almost unchanged: in ECO mode, with its speed limited to 45 km/h, Vespa Elettrica 70 km/h guarantees the same maximum range of up to 100 km, while in Power mode it is possible to cover up to 70 km. Lastly, increasing the final drive ratio has allowed for a quieter ride as, speed being equal, the engine runs with lower rpm.
Vespa Elettrica 70 km/h stands out for several specific style details, the front shock absorber spring painted red, as are decorations on the cover of the Power Unit and the “Elettrica” plate.
