Vespa Primavera Scooters

The Vespa Primavera offers the same agile handling and nimble demeanor expected from the family line, but in a 50 cc version for low-speed, local commutes and a 150 cc version for local commutes on main arteries and secondary roads with higher speed limits. With displacement of 49.9 cc, the Primavera 50 falls under the “max-50 cc” cap that allows operation without a motorcycle endorsement on your driver’s license in many U.S. states and comes offered in a Limited Speed version that expands the number of states for which only a driver’s license is required. With displacement of 154.8 cc and top speed over 60 mph, the Primavera 150 meets the minimum engine size or minimum top speed requirements to be legal for freeway travel in most states.The Primavera range runs from $3,999 for the base 50 cc model to $5,649 for the Primavera 150 Sport.

The update gives it a new look, better handling, and improved ride quality

After a fairly major update in 2015, Vespa’s Primavera 150 scooter was 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 also released a cargo-friendly Touring model and now there’s a Yacht Club variant for a nautical spin. It must be quite the undertaking to keep a model family relevant as long in the tooth as the Primavera, 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.

2020 Vespa Primavera 50

2020 Vespa Primavera 50

It’s hard to beat a bona fide Italian scooter for classic looks and performance

Vespa’s Primavera line marked its gold anniversary in 2018 with, among other things, a range of refreshed models in its 50 cc range: the Chrome Crest (CC), Yacht Club, and Touring. Each sports its own choice of colors and brings something unique to the table in its design, but the overall panache and proven, 4T3V engine technology are a constant across the board. Also available through the Primavera 50 is the Limited Speed variant that restricts top speed to 30 mph, allowing you to ride with a driver’s license and no motorcycle endorsement.

2015 - 2018 Vespa Primavera

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. It’s classy and classic, elegant and sophisticated; that’s something I don’t always get to say about a scooter. New badging harkens back to the original Primavera in the late 60s, so the whole look of the scooter is modern-old...or classic-new, however you want to look at it.
