Good news for Vespa fans, SIP have released their new SIP Performance Vespa ignition. It’s a complete ignition kit developed alongside major European manufacturer, VAPE. It includes a state of the art eight coil stator plate, which is fixed on to a laser cut backplate.


AC and DC versions are available and according to SIP it’s enough to fully illuminate the Vespa lights even at tick-over. If you’re running digital instruments (SIP speedo/sat nav etc.) then SIP recommend the DC type.
