Forming the link between the history of the world’s most famous scooter brand and its future, the Vespa PX is back!
Incomparable style, an engine which respects the toughest emissions standards of today and the classic four gear transmission make the Vespa PX unmistakable and unique.
There has only ever been one Vespa.
The seventeen million examples of the Vespa sold across the globe since 1946 have brought together people of different languages and cultures, and have turned the dreams and desire for freedom of entire generations of young people into reality.
The Vespa has been an integral part of our history and a unique phenomenon in the history of popular culture: it was the vehicle that brought personal mobility to Europe in the post-war Europe. and saw younger generations take different sides with their Vespas and Lambrettas, or as Mods and Rockers.
It embodied music, rebellion, romanticism and escapism. It represented the promise of freedom for all. It is the symbol of the era of the “Dolce Vita”. It played a leading role in the ‘revolution of thought’ brought to fruition by the young generations of the 1960s and ’70s. It welcomed the arrival of Rock’n Roll in Europe and was still here to see the advent of the MTV generation and digital music. And it will continue to go on.
The legend lives on: revised technical content and style.
Essential lines, elegantly minimalist: The Vespa PX maintains all of the classic strong points which determined its success for more than three decades: unmistakable style, functionality and user-friendliness, the legendary sturdiness of a steel bodyshell, the reliability of a simple and robust engine and the possibility of fitting a spare wheel.
Without indulging in retro style for its own sake, the design of the instrument panel of the Vespa PX is instantly recognisable as timeless, with its immediately clear instrumentation. The new hand grips in black rubber are elegantly branded with the Vespa logo and complemented by the chrome taillight. The classic Vespa logo also enhances the new central tunnel cover, now refined by an elegant edge in glazed material.
The Vespa has always been distinguished by a unibody construction – an exclusive feature that has always set the Vespa apart from any other scooter. The PX remains true to this construction solution which, in addition to giving the scooter a classic flavour, also ensures superior stiffness and precision.
The 150 cc single-cylinder, two-stroke engine with forced air cooling features CDI electronic ignition and both electric and kick starters. After all, how can anyone think of the most classic of the Vespa models without the fantastic kick start pedal crank? Authentic to the core, the PX 150 comes with a four speed manual gearbox
Choosing the PX means choosing a total riding experience that has been revered by enthusiasts since the legend was born in 1946.
Expected to Arrive in Australia July 2011 at an MLP of $5990 + ORC, the PX150 will be available in Azzuro Mediterraneo (Blue), Monte Bianco (white), Nero Lucido (Black) and Rosso Dragon (red).
