Piaggio presented the new Vespa Sprint, the evolution of the S, which is based on the legendary Vespa 60s and also in the modern Primavera.
The Italians, therefore, brought back another legendary name in their range, with the new Sprint. The philosophy of the new model is based on that of the Super Sprint 90 of 1966 , which played a decisive role in the spread of the small and sporty Vespa. At the same time, is based on the recent Primavera, which in its turn, combines features from the past, and modern technology that we first saw on the 946. All these elements have a purpose, which is a new model that will replace S.
According to Piaggio, this substitution results in a petite model with more sport opportunities. These are evident already from the design of the Sprint. The square LED headlight, the modern designed dashboard, the sport saddle design, the minimalist lines in the bike’s body and the sharp tail ( based on the first Vespa) give the bike a sport character.
The new Vespa Sprint, is equipped with a three valve engine of Piaggio, which has an improved function and offers increased engine efficiency. The new framework offers increased stability ( by 36 %, according to Piaggio, relatively to the S) and the reinforced front suspension manages to eliminate one of the main weaknesses of a Vespa: the resiliency under pressure.
The new Vespa Sprint has its own particular characteristics. The most important of these is the 12 inch wheels, which are the largest fitted to a Vespa scooter. The Sprint has the same dimensions as an S or an LX, but they have increased in some areas. At the same time, of course, riders will appreciate its small dimensions, which offer flexibility, but also other advantages, such as a seat height 790 mm , which allows riders of lower height to tread safely on the roads.
The new Vespa Sprint, finally, will be available in three versions ( 50 2T , 4T and 50 125 3V) and the colors white, black, blue, red and yellow.
