New Vespa Primavera to debut at Brisbane Expo
Vespa Australia has confirmed the exciting new Primavera's first public appearance in Australia will be at the 2014 Brisbane Moto Expo having air freighted over a sample of the bike in time for the event.

Parent company Piaggio went to great lengths to keep Primavera under wraps prior to the Milan show last year where it was first shown and the Moto Expo will be the first chance to get a sneak preview of the new model in Australia.

The new Primavera, Italian for the season 'Spring', provides a fresh, new look to replace the popular LX model, a design close to 10 years in production. The Primavera name is highly respected in Vespa history having graced the famous marque as a 125 from 1965 to 1992. The name Primavera now returns to emphasise the high regard and confidence Piaggio hold for this new model.

Primavera takes shades of styling from the beautifully sculptured 946 in a more compact overall design highlighting urban practicality coupled to a powerful and efficient engine. Vespa's style is fashioned around its all steel body and Primavera utilises latest technology to increase frame stiffness.

A more tapered tail draws references from the original body design which led to the now famous name Vespa (Italian for wasp). A contoured floor board allows better rider leg to ground comfort while stopped. The new rear quarter panels are more fluid and carry a stylish rib, removing the need for a lower trim as seen on previous models. The front horn cast takes on a taller, more slender design and compliments an overall sleeker look.

Importantly the design is built around Vespa's next generation 3 Valve engine utilising a new double rear swing arm design to further reduce vibration. A longer wheel base and new look 11" front and rear alloy rims add to rider comfort and confidence in handling.

Also redesigned are the new handlebar covers with brushed chrome switch block holders and chrome headlight bezel. A new speedo is fully electronic with digital and analogue readings.

Under seat storage increases from 14.3 to 16.6 litres and the engine immobiliser is fitted as standard. For parking there is the addition of a side stand with safety lock out switch and front led running lights highlight visibility.

The service periods are industry leading 10,000 klm and Primavera comes with a 2 year warranty.

MLP for the new Primavera 150 will be $5990 + orc and the Primavera 125 MLP of $5290 + orc

You can see the new Primavera 150 at the Brisbane Moto Expo from Friday 21st - Sunday 23rd of March.
