The romantic taste of travel returns to live in concept as the Vespa Sidecar.

Vespa introduced the GTV Sidecar, a prototype that evokes the atmosphere of when the first sidecar was launched over 50 years ago.

The first sidecar in fact launched in 1948, coupled to a Vespa 125.

Over 50 years since, the sidecar still finds itself as a form of transport that is both practical and affordable.

The Vespa GTV Sidecar returns to live again in this prototype with the pleasure of experiencing travel in a sidecar along with the image of being on a vintage scooter.

The GTV 250 ie has a 250cc 4 stroke, 4 valve, water cooled, electronic injection motor along with discs on both wheels. The Vespa GTV represents the vintage spirit of a brand that is known as the icon of Italian style around the world. Though this Vespa Sidecar prototype takes advantage of the technology that characterises Vespa in the 21st century.
