Men or women, who hasn’t dreamed of riding a Vespa? This retro scooter is one of the timeless modes of transport that have captured the hearts of 4 successive generations. To this end, you will have to discover “the VESPA”: the pride of the Piaggio company.
The history of the Vespa
Beyond its 1m70 length, the Vespa is the icon of European scooters. Created in the 1940s, this Italian invention continues to capture hearts, despite being rejected at first glance. Apart from that, its wasp-like shape was invented by the aeronautical engineers of the Enrico Piaggio Group. Unfortunately, its release was surpassed by the Fuji Rabbit model (the first scooter model). However, it is undeniable that their prototypes look very similar. Furthermore, the Vespa was used extensively in Europe in the 1950s and 1960s. A reputation that even earned it praise on American soil during the same period. Following a succession of models, the release of the “Vespa Electtrica 2019” proves the industry’s conviction to update its pearls according to the trend and the various requirements.
The advantages of driving a vespa
Aesthetically, the Vespa is a timeless vehicle that blends easily into almost any setting. In addition, the designers at Piaggio & Co have made sure that they produce models that are suitable for both men and women. Furthermore, spare parts (new or used) for this Italian scooter are very accessible, which makes maintenance very pleasant. And that’s not to mention the number of dealerships located in France that can take care of the complete repair of your Vespa. In terms of sustainable development, the Piaggio group is showing their green enthusiasm by gradually changing the motorisation of their vespa. But even with an integrated electric motor, the “Vespa Electtrica 2019” has the same power as a classic combustion engine. Besides, this retro scooter also has a multitude of accessories (gloves, helmets, goggles, etc.) that are mainly aimed at maximising its comfort and handling.
The motorisation of a vespa
Over the generations, this retro scooter has undergone several modifications in its motorisation. In its early days, the vespa entered the market with a 2-stroke engine. Discreetly, this range started to introduce 4-stroke engines, a rather ecological system. Following the great revelations of the 2019 model, VESPA recently celebrated its 75th anniversary with the release of the Vespa Primavera 2021. A bomb that promises environmental justice with its electronic injection and 3.2 HP superpower.
