Vespa Sprint is the most modern version of the Vespa sport idea….

Full of the most advanced technical equipment available today and completely redesigned in order to obtain superior stability and handling levels, Vespa Sprint is born with riding pleasure in mind in order to make even the most routine daily commute fun.
From the mid sixties a new generation of sporty Vespas was invading European streets. They were small, quick, extremely agile and modern, just like the mentality of the guys and girls straddling them. And so, generations seeking freedom and following the speed of ideas which were changing the world in those days were able to find their wings.

So Vespa Sprint embodies the heritage of a tradition of vitality and youthfulness. It was conceived as an evolution of the Vespa Primavera project and intended for young people of all ages, enhancing the sport style that its legendary name evokes.
Vespa Sprint was created with a small and lightweight body that is also comfortable and protective, entirely made in steel and characterised by an extremely youthful line, marked by a gritty rectangular headlight. It has large 12″ wheels with spectacular aluminium alloy rims and it is powered by one of three ultra-modern and ecological engines available in two different sizes. The 125cc version adopts a single cylinder 4-stroke engine with 3 valve timing and electronic injection which constitutes one of the global reference points in terms of low consumption and environmental friendliness.

VESPA SPRINT IS A CUTTING-EDGE PROJECT. THE BEST TECHNOLOGY AND AN ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN: A TRUE REVOLUTION WITH RESPECT TO PREVIOUS VESPA SMALL BODY GENERATIONS. WITH THE GOAL OF GUARANTEEING THE SAME EASE AND LIGHTWEIGHT QUALITIES OF THE PREVIOUS VESPA S, BUT SETTING NEW STANDARDS IN TERMS OF COMFORT, SPACE, RIDING PLEASURE AND SAFETY, VESPA SPRINT IS A COMPLETE REVAMPING OF SHAPE AND SIZE.

NEW SAFETY FEATURES ON THE YOUNGEST VESPA

Just a few months after being introduced, Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint evolve even further with the adoption of the ABS braking system

With this Vespa confirms its cutting-edge technology which has always marked its history and makes it one of the most modern, advanced and safe vehicles on the road today

Just a few months after its début, Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint, the modern versions of the legendary “Vespino”, are now also available with an ABS braking system. The Spring 125 version and the 125 and 150 Primavera versions, the “small body” Vespas, now have a further technical advancement aimed at increasing safety.
The locking up of the front wheel during intense braking or due to slippery asphalt is generally the most significant hazard for motorbike and scooter riders and passengers. The adoption of the ABS antilock braking system is triggered precisely to prevent this danger, making the ride pleasant and entirely safe.

The front wheel on Vespa Primavera ABS and Vespa Sprint ABS has a speed detection system – a sensor and a tone wheel – which instantaneously measures its speed and deceleration compared to that of the scooter. The sensor dialogues with an electro hydraulic control unit which activates the ABS system if the wheel decelerates abruptly, preventing locking and the consequent loss of control over the vehicle, thereby guaranteeing stability and efficient braking even on low friction coefficient surfaces.

This sophisticated safety system, developed specifically for the Vespa “small bodies”, can also boast being lightweight, leaving the vehicle’s kerb weight virtually unchanged in true Vespa tradition as one of the lightest scooters in the world. The new ABS system contributes to raising the already high safety level that the new Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint guarantee. The painstaking care taken in designing the various components has resulted in previously unseen levels of rigidity, but without compromising the weight of the structure. Compared to Vespa LX and Vespa S (the models which Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint replaced respectively), the body is 36% more rigid and the longitudinal flexion has increased by an incredible 154%. The safety and riding pleasure advantages are tangible, where riders will discover a Vespa with dynamic qualities and exceptional stability and handling. Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint have also introduced a new type of front suspension which provides a completely redesigned system capable of cutting sliding friction in half, increasing riding comfort and the ability to absorb bumps in the road. Other contributors to road safety are the new wheel rim sizes on both the Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint.
