VESPA PRIMAVERA AND VESPA SPRINT UPDATED WITH ULTRA-MODERN ‘I-GET’ EURO 4 ENGINE

VESPA PRIMAVERA AND VESPA SPRINT UPDATED WITH ULTRA-MODERN PIAGGIO I-GET EURO 4 ENGINE

Introducing the new versions of Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint which are heirs to the legendary “Vespino” that charmed and transported entire generations of young people all over the world in the ’60s. They stand out for their more generous equipment package that includes a very handy USB socket, located inside the leg shield back plate compartment, and the ABS braking system, now standard on all 125 and 150 cc versions. The most important innovation comes in the form of the new Piaggio i-get Euro 4 powerplant, capable of ensuring brilliant performance, contained consumption and extremely high overall efficiency.

New i-get engine:

More than one million kilometres which have already been ridden during the testing phase are a testament to the attention to quality and reliability in the development process of the new i-get engines which, thanks to the modular nature of the project, can be provided in liquid or air cooled versions with 3 or 4 valve timing.

The new i-get powerplants that equip Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint are ultra-modern single cylinder 4-stroke 125 and 150 cc air cooled engines with electronic injection and 3-valve timing. Each and every detail, from the exhaust to the internal design of the gearbox cover, has been designed to make the ride smoother, quieter and more comfortable. The injection system has been optimised and improved in terms of efficiency; the ECU now has a barometric sensor that guarantees optimum combustion every time in any condition of use and at any altitude. This means that the power and torque output reach new and high levels of regularity and reliability, even in the city with constant “stop and go” riding.

These engines are extremely environmentally friendly since they are approved in compliance with the Euro 4 Multi-Directive, and they are capable of performance which is at the top of the category: the i-get 125 cc has maximum power and torque that measure in respectively at 7.9 kW at 7,700 rpm and 10.4 Nm at 6,000 rpm, whereas the 150 cc reaches 9.5 kW maximum power at 7,750 rpm and 12.8 Nm maximum torque at 6,500. These are values that, along with the proverbial light weight typical of all Vespas, make this Vespa “small body” particularly quick both in city traffic and on stretches of open road. A perfectly calibrated gearbox with new and more resistant friction materials for the dry centrifugal automatic clutch contributes to this result. This brilliant performance is combined with fuel consumption values that are reduced to a minimum: the particular architecture of the engine and the solutions adopted for the various components makes 45.5 km/l possible for the 125 and 41 km/l for the 150 measured in the WMTC cycle. Thanks to a spacious, 8 litre fuel tank, Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint now boast a highly respectable travel range: 364 km can be covered with a full tank on the 125 cc and 328 km with the 150 cc.

ABS as standard on all versions

On all of the 125 and 150 Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint versions, the ABS braking system now comes standard, a further technical advancement intended to increase safety. The front wheel on Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint has a speed detection system – a sensor and a tone wheel – which instantaneously measures its speed and deceleration compared to that of the scooter. The sensor dialogues with an electro hydraulic control unit which activates the ABS system if the wheel decelerates abruptly, preventing locking and the consequent loss of control over the vehicle, thereby guaranteeing stability, vehicle control and efficient braking even on low friction coefficient surfaces such as wet or dirty asphalt.

Versions and colours

The new Vespa Primavera comes in the 125 and 150 cc engine capacity versions, available in four colour schemes: Rosso Dragon (with beige saddle); Nero Vulcano (with red saddle); Blu Midnight (with beige saddle) and Montebianco (with red saddle). Vespa Primavera is also available in the Touring version, a special equipment package characterised by a front and rear luggage rack, both chromium plated. Also included in the Touring package are the new Marrone Crete Senesi colour scheme, the elegant fairing and the dedicated plate.

The new Vespa Sprint is available in two versions: Vespa Sprint (with the 125 cc displacement engine) and Vespa Sprint S (with the 125 and 150 cc displacement engines), the latter characterised by an attractive Titanium Grey colour scheme with dedicated graphics and black painted rims. For Vespa Sprint 125 there are five colour schemes: Rosso Dragon, Nero Lucido, Montebianco, Giallo Positano and Blu Gaiola, all with a black saddle.

50cc:

Vespa Primavera and Sprint are also available in two 50 cc engine versions, dedicated to the very young rider, a tribute to the tradition which began in the ’60s when the legendary small engine capacity “Vespini” became the preferred mode of transportation for the teens of that period.

The 2-stroke 50 cc engine in the Hi-Per2 series is intended for young riders looking for more brilliant performance to get around quickly in the city. The 4-stroke 50 cc engine boasts modern 4 valve timing that provides more lively acceleration: in fact, it is the most powerful 4-stroke 50 cc engine on the market, with its 4.35 HP produced in a very linear way, along with excellent fuel economy and limited polluting emissions. The 50 cc versions of Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint also come with the USB socket located in the leg shield back plate compartment.

Security: Available for Vespa Primavera are the electronic anti-theft system and mechanical saddle-handlebar anti-theft system, as well as a range of other customisable mechanical anti-theft systems.
