Once again setting a trend for fashionable retro scooters that competitors can only dream of, Vespa has just introduced the Primavera Color Vibe.

A special series that pays tribute to the colorful and carefree lifestyle that Vespa symbolizes, it comes in a two-tone livery with two options called Orange Tramonto and Blue Audace.

Setting these apart from Primavera’s already charming standard colorways, the Color Vibe features a contrasting color “stain” outlined in black that runs diagonally across the entire body, with unique graphics on the sides of the front shield and the side panels. The steering cover is also graced with matching graphics, while the series also gets exclusive “Ottanio” alloy wheels.

Black trim is also applied on the headlamp and taillamp bezels, the profile that runs along the front shield, the crest on the front mudguard, the front suspension spring and guard, the passenger grab handle, and the silencer cover. Anthracite stitching adorns the black saddle.

Mechanically, the Primavera Color Vibe is unchanged with a 154.8cc i-Get single-cylinder engine rated at 12.7hp and 12.8Nm. It rides on 110/70 12-inch front and 120/70 12-inch rear tubeless tires, with a front disc and a rear drum brake supplemented by single-channel ABS.

The Vespa Primavera Color Vibe carries a price tag of P235,000, with availability at all accredited Vespa dealerships beginning this June.
