Piaggio has been making Vespa scooters for decades now. The first Vespa rolled out from the Italian motor company’s production facility back in 1946. Since then the Vespa range has evolved, quite a lot actually.
Vespa no longer serves only a single product. Now, it has a plethora of options available which you can check out at the Society Motors, UAE, which is the sole distributor of Vespa scooters in the UAE. It also deals with brands such as Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Derbi, and more.
Out of Vespa’s extensive product catalogue, one very interesting offering is the Vespa Primavera 150. It is a 155cc scooter which is available in 5 attractive colours.
Here are the top 3 features of the Vespa Primavera 150.
1. Retro-modern styling
The Primavera 150 is a modern scooter, however, Vespa has brilliantly managed to keep the retro styling of the two-wheeler intact. The curved body panels, the elegant use of chrome, the round headlight, the classic long and comfortable seat; they all impart the Primavera 150 a vintage feel. Along with these features, Vespa has added some modern features, too. For example, its round headlight is a full-LED unit. The alloy wheels are uniquely designed. There’s a semi-digital instrument cluster as well.
2. Peppy and fuel-efficient engine
Powering the Primavera 150 is a 155cc single that comes with electronic fuel injection and Vespa’s i-get technology. It is indeed a 4-stroke engine but it has 3 valves. It produces 12.9 horsepower and 12.8 Nm of torque. These aren’t the highest output figures that we’ve ever come across, but hey, the Primavera 150 is a scooter, not a sportbike. And when you bring its lightweight into the equation, it is pretty quick and quite fun and to ride. As far as the fuel efficiency is concerned, this Vespa is capable of returning up to 40.3 km to a litre. With an 8-litre fuel tank, you have a range of er… you do the math.
3. Compact dimensions
As we said, the Primavera 150 isn’t a sportbike. It isn’t meant to do your high-speed highway sprints. But it can take the city commuting very well. It is just 1870mm long and 735mm wide. These compact dimensions allow it to be a perfect companion for city rides. It is effortless to ride in the streets and a breeze in dense traffic. Even though it is small in size, it has decent under-seat storage space to accommodate your open-face helmet and other personal belongings.
