2017 sprint 50 & 150

Vespa Sprint is the most modern version of the Vespa sport idea.
Full of the most advanced technical equipment available today and designed to obtain superior stability and handling levels, Vespa Sprint is born with riding pleasure in mind in order to make even the most routine daily commute fun. From the mid-sixties a new generation of sporty Vespas was invading European streets. They were small, quick, extremely agile and modern, just like the mentality of the guys and girls straddling them. And so, generations seeking freedom and following the speed of ideas which were changing the world in those days were able to find their wings.  

So Vespa Sprint embodies the heritage of a tradition of vitality and youthfulness. It was conceived as an evolution of the Vespa Primavera project and intended for young people of all ages, enhancing the sport style that its legendary name evokes. Vespa Sprint boasts a body that is small and lightweight, but also comfortable and protective, entirely made in steel and characterized by an extremely youthful line, marked by a gritty rectangular headlight and it stands out for the large 12” wheels with spectacular aluminium alloy rims.  

Vespa Primavera and Sprint are also available in two 50 cc engine versions, dedicated to the very young rider, a tribute to the tradition which began in the ’60s when the legendary small engine capacity “Vespini” became the preferred mode of transportation for the teens of that period. The 4-stroke 50 cc engine boasts modern 4 valve timing that provides more lively acceleration: in fact, it is the most powerful 4-stroke 50 cc engine on the market, with its 4.35 HP produced in a very linear way, along with excellent fuel economy and limited polluting emissions. The 50 cc versions of Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint also come with the USB socket located in the leg shield back plate compartment.

VESPA PRIMAVERA & VESPA SPRINT
The new and ultra-modern Piaggio i-get euro 4 engine equips the youngest vespa versions: optimized performance, lower operating costs, extremely quiet and efficient. vespa primavera and vespa sprint also boast a generous equipment package and abs as standard equipment. Once again, Vespa confirms its technological cutting-edge, which has always distinguished it and left its mark on history, proving to be one of the most modern and safest vehicles in the world. Introducing the new versions of Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint which are heirs to the legendary “Vespino” that charmed and transported entire generations of young people all over the world in the ’60s. They stand out for their more generous equipment package that includes a very handy USB socket, located inside the leg shield back plate compartment, and the ABS braking system, now standard on all 125 and 150 cc versions. The most important innovation comes in the form of the new Piaggio i-get Euro 4 powerplant, capable of ensuring brilliant performance, contained consumption and extremely high overall efficiency.

New i-get engine: maximum quality and reliability
The new powerplants are the result of a design philosophy that sets new and more advanced quality and reliability levels as its primary objectives. Every aspect of the design process was aimed at increasing the efficiency of each individual component, thereby working together to maximize performance and, at the same time, minimize consumption and emissions (not only polluting emissions but also sound emissions). More than one million kilometres which have already been ridden during the testing phase are a testament to the attention to quality and reliability in the development process of the new i-get engines which, thanks to the modular nature of the project, can be provided in liquid or air cooled versions with 3 or 4 valve timing.

The new i-get powerplants that equip Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint are ultra-modern single cylinder 4-stroke 125 and 150 cc air cooled engines with electronic injection and 3-valve timing. Each and every detail, from the exhaust to the internal design of the gearbox cover, has been designed to make the ride smoother, quieter and more comfortable. The injection system has been optimized and improved in terms of efficiency; the ECU now has a barometric sensor that guarantees optimum combustion every time in any condition of use and at any altitude. This means that the power and torque output reach new and high levels of regularity and reliability, even in the city with constant “stop and go” riding.


2017 Highlights

  • Front Wheel ABS (Primavera 150 & Sprint 150)
  • Up to 98 MPG
  • 30.7" seat height for 50 cc scooters & 31.1" seat height for 150cc scooters
  • New contoured seat and narrower footboard for better ergonomics
  • Euro-4 Compliant

 

ABS as standard on all versions
On all of the 125 and 150 Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint versions, the ABS braking system now comes standard, a further technical advancement intended to increase safety. The front wheel on Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint has a speed detection system – a sensor and a tone wheel – which instantaneously measures its speed and deceleration compared to that of the scooter. The sensor dialogues with an electro hydraulic control unit which activates the ABS system if the wheel decelerates abruptly, preventing locking and the consequent loss of control over the vehicle, thereby guaranteeing stability, vehicle control and efficient braking even on low friction coefficient surfaces such as wet or dirty asphalt. 
This system, developed specifically for the Vespa Primavera and Vespa Spring, can also boast being lightweight, leaving the kerb weight virtually unchanged. The advantages are tangible in terms of safety and riding pleasure on the road, where riders will discover a Vespa with dynamic qualities and exceptional stability and handling. Other contributors to road safety are the generous wheel rim sizes on both the Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint.

You get an"i-Get"
These engines are extremely environmentally friendly since they are approved in compliance with the Euro 4 Multi-Directive, and they are capable of performance which is at the top of the category: the i-get 125 cc has maximum power and torque that measure in respectively at 7.9 kW at 7,700 rpm and 10.4 Nm at 6,000 rpm, whereas the 150 cc reaches 9.5 kW maximum power at 7,750 rpm and 12.8 Nm maximum torque at 6,500. These are values that, along with the proverbial light weight typical of all Vespas, make this Vespa “small body” particularly quick both in city traffic and on stretches of open road. A perfectly calibrated gearbox with new and more resistant friction materials for the dry centrifugal automatic clutch contributes to this result. This brilliant performance is combined with fuel consumption values that are reduced to a minimum: the particular architecture of the engine and the solutions adopted for the various components makes 45.5 km/l possible for the 125 and 41 km/l for the 150 measured in the WMTC cycle. Thanks to a spacious, 8 litre fuel tank, Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint now boast a highly respectable travel range: 364 km can be covered with a full tank on the 125 cc and 328 km with the 150 cc.

The Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint i-get powerplants are single cylinder engines, completely new both in terms of mechanical components and electronic parts. Worth a mention in more detail are:

  • the crankshaft, with 24% increased inertia compared with the previous engine for a decisive reduction in vibrations and a smoother ride;
  • the new starter motor, decidedly quieter; 
  • the new gearbox cover, to reduce the noise even more and increase stiffness;
  • the barometric sensor, so that combustion is always optimized.
