I’m sure Vespa fans the world over know of the Primavera, a smallframe 125cc 2-stroke scooter produced by Piaggio from the early 1960s until the late 1990s. 

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 Vespa Primavera ET3 is a specific, limited-edition variant (144,000 units were produced overall) of the Vespa “Primavera”. The initials ET3 indicate that the vehicle had electronic ignition and that the engine's single cylinder had a third transfer port. The smaller-sized body, like that of the Vespa 50cc, gave the vehicle more manoeuvrability, a feature that made this Vespa the favourite of 1970s youngsters. The seat the colour of blue jeans of the first few units produced reveals the link between the young and the Primavera ET3. The 125cc ET3's engine resembled the Primavera's from the outside but was much faster and more powerful (7 bhp), so that for a long time it was the speediest Vespa of its category.


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???

Vespa 946 : Very Handmade Vespa Scooter


Attention to detail has been an integral part of the project right from the start. But when the Vespa 946 moves along the production line, then it really becomes a unique item. From the first stitching on the leather handle grips to the final polish, everything is done by hand, with the same care as a couturier for his creations. From the press shop to the tumble finishing, the attention and passion is that of an artist's atelier. Because a craftsman is an artist.

Born of Vespa - Classic VS Modern


Historical Video of Vespa showing Corradino D'Ascanio, the father of Vespa, in the making of the world famous scooter. Vespa 98, 1946 - The first Vespa. It was powered by a 98 cc engine that delivered 3.2 bhp at 4,500 rpm with a top speed of 60 km/h.




THE VESPA PRIMAVERA LEGEND IS BACK
New body, new wheel sizes, new front suspension, new electronic injection system for unbeatable low emissions. The Primavera is a highly modern Vespa, designed with the elegance of an exclusive style but without renouncing the comfort aspect.


The new Vespa Primavera represents an important point of evolution in the Vespa story. During the design phase, every solution focused on increasing the level of comfort, safety and driving pleasure compared with the previous (and even recent) generations, continuing an evolution that, for almost 70 years and after more than 18 million vehicles sold over the five continents, makes Vespa the youngest and best-loved two-wheeler in the world.
