First official images of the 2014 Vespa Sprint
Everything vintage is fashionable and a brand like Vespa could not stay away. After relaunching the PX in 2011 and show off the spring, now returns with another model that had been “parked” for 40 years. The Sprint will have two displacements and three engines.
The Piaggio Group has distributed the first images of the new Vespa Sprint. This model is an evolution of the Vespa Primavera which we could see in the EICMA in Milan.
The Vespa Sprint has two engines of 50 cc (2 and 4 stroke) and 125 and 12-inch wheels fitted with aluminum alloy wheels of interesting design. Other aspects of its new aesthetic are new and exclusive seat height reduced to 790 mm, square lighthouse and mixed analog-digital instrumentation.
The 125 cc version mounted single-cylinder engine of four times and three-valve with electronic injection that debuted on 2012 Vespas S/LX, with reduced emissions and fuel expenditures content.
The Vespa Sprint has other practical aspects such as the hollow under the seat of 16.6 litres capable of accommodating a Jet type helmet, new handles for the passenger with square shape, protected by a “spoiler” or headlights with LED light/brake instrumentation.
The whole body-frame is a piece of steel. One of the most interesting aspects is that it could relocate the battery in the center tunnel of the foot platform, gaining site under the seat. It also uses a new system of fixing the motor to the chassis that allows reducing the vibrations transmitted to the pilot.
This Sprint will be available in white, red, black, blue and yellow. Prices will be as follows: Sprint 50 2T: 2,770 euros, Sprint 50 4T 4V: 2.870 euros, Sprint 125 cc i.e. 3V: 3.799 euros.
