A Facelift, New Variants, And Better Handling

After a fairly major update in 2015, Vespa’s Primavera 150 scooter gets brushed up yet again ahead of the 2018 model year. This newest iteration brings a number of improvements to the table to include larger hoops, all-around LED technology with some aesthetic improvements to boot. In addition to the 150 cc base model, the factory is also releasing the Primavera S that bestows never-before-seen levels of technology on the classic design such as TFT instrumentation and a multimedia system, as well as a cargo-friendly Touring model that positively bristles with luggage racks. It must be quite the undertaking to try and keep a model family as long in the tooth as the Primavera relevant, but Vespa doggedly stays the course and treats us to yet another handful of successors here half-a-century after the release of the original.

Pick Your Styling - Modern Old or Classic New

The Vespa Primavera got a facelift in 2015 and debuted as Vespa’s hot ticket for the 150 cc U.S. market and a modern yet retro entry in the 50 cc market. The three-valve 150 cc engine gets a lot better gas mileage than the previous incarnations, so using this snazzy-looking scooter as a commuter is even better now. Speaking in terms of the fit-and-finish of the Primavera, this is possibly the best scooter out of Vespa for a while now.
