Proof of the fact that an innovative mind can never fall asleep is held in the content of the video below. A Vespa on the dyno? I should have washed my face for a second time this morning! But yes, this video shows nothing more or less than a classic Vespa on which there has been placed a turbo. You read well, don’t look strange! And even stranger is the fact that this isn’t even the latest in what concerns the evolution of the Vespa.
Tested on the dyno, it sounds like it has nothing to do with the average two-stroke engine and at 42 HP and 36 Nm it really hasn’t. You would think that this kind of power can’t be properly valued on a scooter, but your opinion will change as soon as you see and hear it run at the end of the video. I hope that guy is wearing a helmet!
