Moto Italia, the exclusive distributor of Vespa scooters in the country, held the Vespa and Okada Breakfast ride where Vespa owners gathered to Okada Manila, Parañaque City on March 1, Sunday.
There, the new model was launched featuring updates on its aesthetical and functional point of view. First, it has a new front tie design and introduces an LED technlogy. Aside from these, the new instrument panel has revamped graphics providing higher visibility in any lighting conditions. This panel is a combination of speedometer and LCD digital screen, giving the rider accurate information about the fuel level and clock time.
Moving to the saddle, it now has a flatter and narrower tip, yet keeping enough padding and size ensuring comfortability for the ones with modest height. These enhance the premium look of the Vespa S, keeping up with the sporty and energetic touch.
For more control and comfort, both for the rider and the passenger, the new model’s footrest was reshaped. With this and the saddle’s new design as well, the riders with modest height can easily put the feet on the ground, while the passenger has more footrest space.
While riding, the movement of the swinging arm is structured on roller boxes that reduce operating friction to a minimum. With a new structure design, connecting the engine and the body and a damping absorber, the new model has further improved in clearing vibrations.
Vespa S is equipped with a single cylinder 4-strokes 125cc air cooled I-get engine with electronic injection and 3-valves timing, improving efficiency and fuel consumption.
On safety and security, Vespa S comes with the immobilizer anti-theft system as standard, indicated by the light in the instrument panel, when active.
For rider convenience, the new Vespa S also comes with a functional glove box, for storing small objects. The load capacity is also ensured by the helmet compartment and the bag hook. A USB charging port is also available in this new model.
The new Vespa S is available in 5 different colors: Grey Titanio (matt), Yellow Sole (glossy), White Innocenza (glossy), Black Vulcano (glossy), Blue Vivace (matt).
Since 2007, Vespa S has allured many young generations with its perfect shape for easy urban mobility, energetic design and dynamic character. It is priced at Php 145,000.
