Vespa are celebrating their 75th birthday by releasing a special edition model only available for 2021. Check out all the added extras you'll get with the Primavera And GTS 75th models...
From the 23rd of April 1946 to 2021: seventy-five years of history during which the Vespa has taken the roads of the entire world up by a whole new gear. A period that has seen the Vespa lead new trends to become a timeless icon around the world.
To celebrate the Vespa’s 75th anniversary as a true citizen of the world, a new special series, Vespa 75th, has been created for the Primavera (150cc) and the GTS (300cc). These will be arrive mid year and only be produced for 2021.
The Vespa 75th body, is presented in “Giallo 75th”, an original metallic yellow. Developed specifically for the new series as a contemporary interpretation of hues in vogue in the 1940s, Vespa say the colour evokes the heritage, innovative spirit and fashion-loving style of the Vespa.
The side panels and front mudguard display the number 75 in a slightly stronger shade, creating a quietly elegant tone-on-tone effect, which is repeated on the front of the scooter, where the traditional “tie” is an opaque “Giallo Pirite” yellow.
The scooter also features a special nubuck leather saddle with edge in Grigio Fumo grey, wheels painted in grey and a host of chrome-plated details, including the “tie” ornaments, the badge on the front mudguard, the instrument cluster surround, the muffler cover, the rear-view mirrors and, on the GTS only, the foldaway passenger footpegs.
The rear luggage rack, another distinctive feature of the Vespa 75th which also chrome-plated: it houses a complimentary round bag whose shape replicates the typical spare wheel holder. Made from velvety-soft nubuck leather in the same colour as the saddle, the bag has a shoulder strap for easy carrying, and clips on the luggage rack with a quick-release mechanism.
In technology terms, the 75th represents the top of the Vespa range: all the models of this anniversary version are equipped with a 4.3″ TFT colour display, while the fully digital instrument cluster makes the best possible use of the capabilities of the Vespa MIA smartphone connectivity.
In addition to all this, to mark the exclusivity of this special celebratory series, each Vespa 75th comes with a Welcome Kit, a vintage steel Vespa plate, a personal Owner’s Book and eight collector postcards with images from the eight decades of the Vespa story. Pricing will be announced closer to the release.
