Vespa Primavera

Eicma begins this week in Milan, and with it, comes the onslaught of new models. Whilst actual details might be short, these images can't hide that Vespa will launch a new small-frame scooter called the Primavera. The Primavera is an update for the current LX and another reminder of Vespa's past, similar story to the Vespa 946.

Here is what is clearly noticeable from the pictures. The Primavera will launch a newly designed and constructed, one-piece metal frame. The front suspension looks to be in for an overhaul. The rear tyre looks to be bigger, whilst the seat height looks to be shorter.

Design is very 946. Front LED blinkers and a redesigned horn cover. The front handlebar cover and headlight/chrome surround is new also. The engines will most likely be the same 3 valve units used currently, though you can see the new exhaust and heat shield. Pictures would also suggest the rear brake remains drum (which is a little disappointing).

Expect further details mid-week as the Eicma show opens to media. We will have all the updates here on
