vespa redesigns the iconic sei giorni scooter from the 50's

vespa’s new special edition named ‘sei giorni’, which translates to ‘six days’, celebrates the original vespa sport scooter that won nine gold medals at the international six days of varese in 1951. based on today’s generation vespa ‘GTS’ scooters, the limited ‘sei giorni’ harks back to the italian-manufacturer’s iconic style. suchlike its 66-year-old predecessor, it features a unique low-mounted headlamp located on the front fender, special handlebars, plus the same colorway, and details inspired by the winning scooter.

the vespa ‘sei giorni’ comes outfitted with a seat upholstered in fine, black leather with contrast stitching, and it comes with the same olive green livery as the sport scooter  from the 1950’s. a set of blacked-out rims, exhaust, and details including a round number holding plate, and iconic ‘six’ badges make this scooter truly stand-out from its trusted counterparts. a small plaque with the model’s serial number, plus a USB port located inside the luggage compartment, ABS, and LED lights complete the ‘sei giorni’s’ refinements.

riders can customize their scooter by adding a windshield, front and rear luggage racks, a 42-liter bag, anti-theft devices, a thermal covering, or even a tom tom ‘VIO’ scooter GPS unit. the ‘six days’ is powered by a 300 cc euro4-compliant liquid cooled four-stroke engine that can create 21 hp, and 22 Nm of torque at 5000 rpm, while it also comes with an electric starter, a twist-and-go transmission, and an 8.5-liter fuel tank as standard.

  • I Think Piaggio should embrace elctrification… their combustion engines are just not cool anymore- stick to the heritage design idea but stop these old poluting low performing enignes. I Would like to see a electric “ciao” for starters.

  • I have a 2007 Vespa 150 LX bought from Copart auction Salvage title in November 2016 with 1100 miles and now has almost 18000 miles.The only thing that I did is replacing rear tire and 10w-40 shyntetic oil every 3000 miles and recently started to leak oil from the head gasket,but I check often the oil level.Some time I take freeway 10 to 20 miles distance at 45 mph,because de rpm of the engine,and I know that I have to checked belt,clucth etc,etc.and still running strong and very good.A year ago I bought another salvage Vespa Gts 300 Super veryk fast 2013 fuel injection,and few months ago I bought a 2008 Salvage from Copart auction Vespa 150 Lxv with small windshield on front and rear color beautiful well mantenance,few dents,excellent.I must said that I got a250 Elite and 250 cc Helix and they are good bike,but Vespa come from.another planet very reliable and quality motorcycle
