Vespa 75th Anniversary models revealed | NEWS
Next month sees Vespa celebrating their 75th anniversary and to kick off the celebrations they’re launching special edition versions of the Primavera 125, GTS 125 SuperTech and GTS 300 SuperTech.
The 75th models will come in an original colour, “Giallo 75th” a metallic yellow, developed as a nod to colours in vogue back in the 1940s when the Italian scooters first arrived. The mudguard and side panels have the number 75 in a slightly deeper shade to give a two-tone effect and the horncasting is painted in an opaque Giallo Pirite yellow.
Faux spare wheel
The 75th Anniversary models also have their seats upholstered in a special nubuck leather with an edge trimmed in Grigio Fumo grey, the wheel rims are also painted in grey with a diamond finish. Lashings of chrome trim and detailing include the addition of a rear luggage rack, complete with dummy spare wheel. It’s actually a velvety-soft nubuck leather round bag in the same finish as the seat. The bag clips on to the rack and has a quick-release mechanism, a shoulder strap for easy carrying and a waterproof cover. Finally, the special edition model is identified by a plate on the glovebox.
