Vespa Philippines is proud to announce that the Vespa 75th Anniversary Edition models of the Primavera (150 cc) and GTS (300 cc) are now on sale in the Philippines.
The bodies of these two special edition models, all-steel as always, 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, the color 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 pyrite yellow.
The two scooters also feature a special nubuck leather saddle in smoke grey with piping, wheel rims painted in grey with a machine finish, and a host of chrome-plated details, including the “tie” ornaments, the stickers 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 Anniversary Edition, is also chrome-plated: it houses a round bag whose shape replicates the typical spare wheel holder. Made from velvety- soft nubuck leather in the same color as the saddle, the bag has a shoulder strap for easy carrying, and clips on the luggage rack with a quick-release mechanism. It comes with a waterproof cover. Like all Vespa special editions, the series is identified with a plate behind the leg shield.
In technology terms, the Vespa 75th Anniversary Edition represents the pinnacle of the Vespa range. All of the models are equipped with a 4.3” TFT color display, while the fully digital instrument cluster makes the best possible use of the capabilities of the Vespa MIA smartphone connectivity system.
In addition to all this, to mark the exclusivity of this special celebratory series, each Vespa 75th Anniversary Edition model comes with a welcome kit, including a vintage steel Vespa plate, a personal Owner’s Book, and eight collector postcards with images from the eight decades of the Vespa story.
