Vespa has long had a place in the hearts and minds of the Pinoy two-wheeler enthusiast. Loved for its timeless, retro styling, Vespa offers some of the most unique, eye-catching scooters currently available in the market. 2021 marks Vespa’s 75th anniversary of making some of the world’s most iconic two-wheelers. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Italian icon has launched two special edition models of some of its most popular scooters.
Vespa’s 75th Anniversary lineup consists of the Primavera 150 and GTS 300. The two scooters are clad in an elegant gold color scheme dubbed “Giallo 75th”. This special edition colorway is a throwback to one of the most popular color options of Vespas in the late 40s and early 50s. This limited edition colorway gives the scooter an elegant aesthetic—a nod to its simple and humble origins 75 years ago. On top of the Giallo 75th gold paint is a subtle “75” numbering on the side panels finished in a slightly contrasting shade of gold.
To make things even better, the 75th Anniversary edition scooters are equipped with a custom leather saddle upholstered in premium smoked gray leather. A circular leather bag also adorns the scooter’s rear luggage rack—a nod to the spare wheel mounted on the tail of earlier generation Vespas. Lastly, the 75th Anniversary scooters will be handed to their new owners complete with a personalized welcoming kit with a vintage steel Vespa plate. An owner’s booklet complete with eight limited edition Vespa collector postcards, as well as a chic Italian jacquard-silk scarf really elevate the Vespa experience even more.
As far as pricing and availability is concerned, Vespa Philippines has launched the scooters in the local market across its expansive dealership network. The Primavera 75th Anniversary Edition has been priced at P298,000. The more premium and capable GTS 300, on the other hand, fetches a tidy P468,000.
