Special Edition Of Vespa Scooter Named ‘75th’

These special editions of the Vespa scooter are available in both 125cc and 300cc iterations.

There is a special badging on the front glove box which displays the brand’s name and reflects its 75 years of existence. The use of chrome on rear-view mirrors, front mudguard, exhaust muffler, instrument cluster surround and the alloys finished in grey with a diamond-cut finish add to the elegant looks of these special edition scooters.

The special edition Vespa does get a lot of cosmetic changes when compared to the regular trim which includes, a chrome-laced rear luggage rack that holds a large leather bag thus mimicking a spare wheel holder, 4.3-inch fully digital TFT colour display compatible with Vespa MIA smartphone connectivity system and more. The Italian scooter marker is also providing a welcome kit which will have an Italian silk scarf, a special owner’s manual, eight collector postcards each showing the eight decades of Vespa’s rich history and a vintage steel Vespa plate.
