2020 Vespa Primavera 50Vespa

The Vespa Primavera meets the demands of a simple around-town ride with its compact design, and has done so since its unveiling in 1967. It comes in 50 or 150cc single-cylinder engine options to suit the scooter rider’s needs too. Remote saddle opening (available on 150cc model), LED lighting front and rear, and bike finder tech are a few features that bring it to the 21st century as well. Variations are also available to suit more tour-likely folks or those looking for a little more sportiness—see Touring and S models specifically.
