Naza Premira Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of Vespa scooters in Malaysia, has introduced three limited edition Vespa scooters – the Vespa 946 (RED), Vespa Sprint Carbon and Vespa Sei Giorni. With a brand tagline of “Not for Everyone”, the Vespa scooters represent the unique and distinctive style of Italian elegance.
The Vespa 946 (RED) is an all-red version of the classic Vespa 946 scooter and is a highly exclusive model dedicated to aesthetic and technological perfection. As per Vespa tradition, the 946 (RED) has steel bodywork but is embellished with eye-catching aluminium components such as the mudguard and the side covers for the engine and transmission housing. This updated classic scooter is fitted with a double-disc type brake system, a dual-channel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) and an innovative Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) traction control system that is exclusive to the Piaggo Group. ASR prevents loss of grip and ensures traction at all times.
The 946 (RED) is powered by a 150 cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine with three valves, and consumes 2l/100km of fuel. The Vespa 946 (RED) is priced at RM66,000 and is only available in red.
If red is not your colour, then have a look at the Vespa Sprint Carbon, which combines a sporty personality and innovative technology. The Sprint Carbon is the most modern version of the Vespa sport idea, using a small and lightweight body made to heighten riding pleasure and safety while embodying the heritage and tradition of the legendary vespino.
The Vespa Sprint Carbon body is made of steel and designed with bold rectangular headlights and large 12 inch wheels with aluminium alloy rims. It uses the Piaggio Group’s new and ultra-modern i-Get 150 cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine with 9.5 kW at 7,750 rpm and 12.8 Nm at 6,500 rpm, capable of brilliant performance, lower operating costs with reduced noise and extremely high overall efficiency.
Further, the Vespa Sprint Carbon is equipped with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and a USB socket. The Vespa Sprint Carbon is priced at RM17,400 and comes in black.
Last but not least, the Vespa Sei Giorni is the heir to the original Vespa Sport “Sei Giorni” specifically built for the taxing “Sei Giorni Internazionale di Varese” regularity competition of 1951, where it earned 9 gold medals. The Vespa Sei Giorni is a special version, produced in a numbered edition and dons a “Special Edition” plate on its leg shield back plate bearing its serial number.
The Vespa Sei Giorni is designed with the characteristic elements such as the “faro basso”: the low position of headlight assembly on the front fender, and the handlebar like the one on the original Vespa Sei Giorni, as well as its iconic exposed metal pipe. Its uniqueness is also enhanced by the black number plate taken directly from the livery of the Vespa, highlighted by all black parts and gritty red details. The scooter also comes with a single-seat look saddle to highlight the sporty spirit of the Vespa Sei Giorni.
For power, the Vespa Sei Giorrni uses the most powerful engine in the history of Vespa scooters – the modern 300 Euro 4 – a single cylinder, four-stroke, four-valve, liquid-cooled, electronic injection engine capable of putting out 15.6kW of power at 7,750 rpm and 22 Nm at 5,000 rpm, ensuring quick response in acceleration and overall performance.
The Vespa Sei Giorni is equipped with a spacious helmet compartment and a large and comfortable seating area, ergonomically crafted to ensure absolute comfort even for long distances. In addition to its standard ABS safety feature, the Vespa Sei Giorni also has a USB port located inside the compartment of the leg shield and front turn LED lights that function as day running lights.
The Vespa Sei Giorni is priced at RM38,000 and available in green.
