A RADICALLY NEW DESIGN...

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.


IT'S A NEW PRIMAVERA.

The first Vespa Primavera emerged in 1968. This was the year that witnessed a new awareness amongst the younger generation, that suddenly wanted to yell for freedom. The year when every classic mould broke down, marking the history of western culture forever. From the universities of California to the squares of Paris, a new social group - that of young people - demanded a place in the front row of a fast-changing society.


Vespa Primavera made its first appearance in that tumult of ideas and fervour, becoming the star by making two wheels and an engine available to the changing world: it became the heroine of an unforgettable season.
Nimble, innovative lines, sparkling performance, easy and fun to ride - Vespa Primavera was a breath of fresh air in a world hungry for change. It went on to become one of the most durable and best-loved models in the Vespa story.

Vespa Primavera is back today, with a wealth of those values that produced the legend.


Youthful, innovative, technologically ground-breaking, agile and dynamic, with an eye to the protection of the environment of which it is the star, the Vespa Primavera is the protagonist of its time, inheriting all the freshness and joy of life that go hand in hand with the story of a model that is a cult in the Vespa family tree.


The new Vespa Primavera adopts some of the style and technical features of the Vespa 946 - the most esteemed and technologically advanced model ever created.


IT'S AN ALL-NEW VESPA.

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 modifications from one model to the next were often minimal; sometimes they were more important, but never losing sight of the original idea that placed elegance, pioneering technology and enjoyable riding at the heart of the project.

Brand new scooter from Vespa!

On a side note, I absolutely love that first photo, the woman's emotions really made it awesome! I don't know who that model is, but man, she is definitely in the right career!

I didn't notice the scooter until the third photo.

Vespa is more about chick urban design than value which is why you can get a 500cc Honda for about the same price. It is a perfect ride for an affluent college girl riding around campus with a Gucci bag and Prada shoes heading for her next psychology class.

Safe Travels,
Richard

I gave it a solid cool because it doesn't try to pretend to be anything more than it is it, an urban runabout scooter, nothing fancy, nothing exciting, just hop on it a run down to your local shops or college. It also has a pretty basic timeless look to it, not going for that Akira look many mega scooters try for. Image

Scooters are cool, but overpriced ones are not. Price on the Vespa USA website is $4899. I can get a Honda PCX150 for $3439, and get Honda stone-ax reliability to boot. As well as 10mph higher top speed, and 14 inch wheels instead of the Vespa's 11 inchers. If I needed a scooter for short in-town commutes, I would get the Honda over the Vespa hands down. Vespa is marketing urban chic to the 20-somethings, and charging a pretty penny for it. (Gee..... style over substance...... sounds like a certain American motorcycle company I know.... :whistling: )

Hell will freeze over before I'm caught paying almost 5 grand for a 150cc scooter. Uncool.

You can debate practicality, reliability, value-for-money, or performance, but if there's one thing this Vespa (and Vespas in general) have going for them; they're arguably the only scooters that are truly objects of desire. Which is I guess is why some people are willing to spend the extra dough. Sometimes you can't rationalize or put a price on that special something that makes you turn around and take one last look before you head into the house.

I'm with Thumper on this. Yes, you can get cheaper, more reliable, more power and better tech with say a Honda scooter.....but the Vespa marque and its look have a certain something that transcends mere shoddy monetary or economic rationals...there is no reason or logic to it, it just is.
Always ask why.

You're exactly right, in a sense. I wouldn't spend on a Vespa or a Harley, but I do recognize that they've got "it". Call it a combination of heritage, decades of exposure in pop culture, current style. Heck, it's also due to years of marketing. Vespa and Harley, as well as several other brands, have that (cringe emoticon) "mystique". And, no surprise, they do charge a premium for it.

Lets just call it good marketing. It is a wonderful think when your marketing department can get people to give you extra money just to buy the image you have created for your products. It makes them feel good about themselves, it makes them feel special, and the company makes a lot of extra money.
