PRIMAVERA STATE OF MIND
Capturing the joy of living
The first version of what would quickly become a timeless classic was launched in 1968 and was a real revolution. Youthful, agile, innovative, safety- and environment-friendly, then, as today, Vespa Primavera was a true star of the times. And the revolution continues, with the brand new Vespa Primavera boasting even greater safety, comfort and style, along with extra bells and whistles and special versions.
AGILE and SUPER TECHNOLOGICAL
Fifty years after its debut, Vespa Primavera is still the voice of young people, in harmony with the spirit of freedom, dynamism and attention to environmental issues. Uninterrupted success and a restyling that today makes it even more agile and super-technological.
The new 12-inch wheel rims with five-spoke design, the largest in Vespa history, provide stability and total safety on all road surfaces. The 150cc with its sleek new i-Get electronic injection 4-stroke and 3-valve single cylinder engine with catalytic converter and with Euro-4 multi-directive emissions compliant is brilliant partnership between power, technology and caring for the environment. The injection system has been optimized 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.
Fully automatic and self start, a perfectly calibrated gearbox with new and more resistant friction materials for the dry centrifugal automatic clutch contributes to this result.
Vespa Primavera, the ABS braking system now comes standard, a further technical advancement intended to increase safety. The front wheel on Vespa Primavera 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.
It’s classy and technological, elegant and sophisticated; that’s something you don’t always get to say about a scooter. It’s a way of being and a state of mind, besides being a means of transport.
