Vespa was founded in 1985 and since then, its main purpose was to build efficient, affordable and practical scooters. Today, the company continues to build scooters that keep the same DNA as its predecessors, but are fitted with modern technologies and features which make them perfectly suited for the requirements of modern riders.
The Sport Special Edition of the Vespa S 50 4V makes no exception and is powered by a modern 49.4 cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 4-valves engine with catalytic converter. The unit is fueled by a 2.3 gallons fuel tank and is mated to an automatic twist and go transmission (CVT) with automatic dry centrifugal clutch with vibration dampers.
In terms of style, the Sport Special Edition comes with a series of special graphics, a single seat saddle with white piping, black wheels and a red spring.
