It does have a benefit in that it can achieve a claimed 62 miles on a single charge, though. Overall, I was left impressed. Riding in a pack of equally matched scooters is always good fun. One lurks the shallows and eats things indiscriminately, the other sprints around major cities. Since the front suspension is of the landing-gear style, it can run with a single central steering column in lieu of the hydraulic front forks favored by most scooter builders. The front end is a solid arm with a trailing link and a coil-over shock for the actual suspension. The first service is still at 1,000km though.

On a relatively smooth surface, the Elettrica is a pleasant ride. It has evolved, but not in a little while. The real revolution was in the steel sheet unibody structure that, though unchanged in its iconic style, was light-years ahead of all previous Vespas in terms of torsional rigidity. Road testing I must admit that the new engine was noticeably quicker off the mark straight from the off outside the hotel. For reference, the Vespa Primavera 50cc scooter has a top speed of 40 mph. .

It was a smoother engine to ride too than before, less of a rasp or rumble. One thing I did notice was that the new side stand no longer grinds out on left-handers. In fact that 18% torque increase is evident right through the rev range. Would I trade in my 2016, no not yet. Though the front suspension relies on the same sort of coil-over shock as the rear, only the struts in back get the preload adjuster while the front runs with fixed values. Engine: 4-stroke single cylinder, 4 valves, electronic injection Displacement : 278 cc Bore x Stroke: 75 mm x 63 mm Max Power at crankshaft : 21. The sheet metal presents a familiar face to the world with a redesigned tie that divides the front fairing and doubles as a horn cover.

Together, their behavior is precisely what a scooter should be—light, playful and impressively agile. A Piaggio spokesman seemed very surprised when we asked. Vespa Primavera benefits from further operations that renew its line, distinguishing it from previous versions. The system also allows you to use the handlebar buttons to answer calls and to use the smartphone's voice commands to make calls or play music from your own playlist. On top of all the new features that already enrich the range, the Vespa Primavera S incorporates a fully digital instrument panel with a 4.

Piaggio has achieved these performance goals with two riding modes, Power and Eco. I found it pretty keen to skirt around four-wheeled traffic on the twisty coastal roads with only the slightest encouragement. When I look at the Super, I see a that could serve as an entry-level trainer or as a ride for an experienced and safety-conscious rider. As for the seat itself, it comes with new padding and a new cover in a bid to increase both pilot and pillion comfort. From a technical point of view they are all the same.

The Vespa Primavera Yacht Club, available in 50cc and 150cc versions, and the Yacht Club, available in 300cc version, stand out for their white color, embellished with numerous blue details. Interestingly the new engine is said to give a 12% increase in power and 18% more torque, taking torque up from 22nm 5000 rpm, to 26Nm at 5,250rpm. Those improvements are thanks to the new head, with improved valves, new springs and a new cam chain. With a maximum speed of 32 mph, the Elettrica can be ridden in 27 American states without a motorcycle license. If Power mode can easily be described as what most motorcyclists would perceive the common Rain mode, Eco mode would be half that. It has changed over time, but the core traits are still there; a Vespa will always appear to be a Vespa, first and foremost. That year every social structure was smashed, and a revolution began that affected technology, architecture, design, culture and the arts with music providing a powerful soundtrack.

By doing so, the Elettrica will fly under the radar of regulation due to its top speed figures by being classified as a moped. The Primavera quickly making its mark in scooter history and culture. The Vespa Primavera was introduced. As an overall package, it looks great and the new colours further enhance things. Displacement measurement factors remain unchanged, while new castings were developed for the head to obtain superior performance in thermodynamic efficiency. I half expected to be left feeling a bit flat by the new model but that new engine does the business. The world of Vespa is a vibrant and colourful place to be.

As the world changes around it, the scooter and the alligator have remained the absolute masters of their domain by never deviating from their goals. Classic Italian looks are always nice, but under the hood the Super packs away 21st century tech to make it a thoroughly modern machine. Refined details include a saddle dedicated to each model and a plate with the logo placed on the rear shield. I guess the main reason I pulled this machine is the fact that they both fall at a similar pricing point and the quality of the fit and finish will be at similar standards. With major revisions to the engine and drivetrain, you get, not only more horsepower, more torque and better fuel economy, but also a smoother and quieter ride.
