Derived from the Vespa 125 VMA1, the Vespa 125 Primavera ("Spring") met with immediate success. Easy to handle, trim, quick, powerful, are some of the adjectives that describe the Vespa Primavera in the 1960s. The young are the main characters of the spot "Con Vespa si può" ("With Vespa it’s possible") that addresses teens above 16 who love sport and nature, and do not like to get stuck in the traffic and be late for dates with friends.
The main feature is a longer frame, which permits an easier transportation of the passenger.
Piaggio also produced a ‘sports’ version too, the Primavera ET3, back in the days when an alternative to the range meant things like a higher performance 3-port cylinder and electronic ignition, and not just a few extra graphics that will cost you £250 more!

The new Primavera however, will be powered by the same 125cc, 3-valve, 4-stroke air-cooled engine that the Vespa LX and 946 use, and will also have an LCD speedometer reminiscent of those from the original Primavera or the 1970s. However this new Vespa is heavily inspired by the Vespa 946. Is it true???
