Vespa S (Press Release by Moto Italia)
Continuously redefining technical and stylistic characteristics, without ever betraying the distinctive spirit of a unique vehicle.
In 1946, the first Vespa was born as a simple, practical but also unique and elegant vehicle for daily commute. Being a perfect follower of the Vespa heritage, since 2007 Vespa S has allured many young generations with its perfect shape for easy urban mobility, energetic design and dynamic character.
In 2019, Vespa brings a lively breeze to the new Vespa S, both from an aesthetical and functional point of view. The updated model stands out for a completely new front tie that conveys an even more vital look, the introduction of the LED technology (and the LED daytime running lights for Indonesia only) on the rectangular headlight and the dynamic single-seat saddle (Indonesia) / the double-seat saddle (all other countries) with special finishing. Particular attention was given also to the details of the new instrument panel with its revamped graphics which provides higher visibility in any lighting conditions. The panel of Vespa S is a combination of speedometer and LCD digital screen, that gives the rider accurate information about the fuel level and clock time.
Big news come with the design of the saddle, now having a flatter and narrower tip, yet keeping enough padding and size to ensure a comfortable ride for the ones with modest height. Moreover, the new materials further enhance the premium look of the vehicle, keeping up with the sporty and energetic touch. In order to enhance more control and comfort for both rider and passenger, the footrest is also reshaped. Thanks to the combination of the new design of both saddle and footrest, the riders with modest height can now easily put the feet on the ground, while the passenger has more footrest space.
On the Vespa S, 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, Vespa S 2019 is 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.
The 2019 color range is composed of 5 powerful shades: Grey Titanio (matte), Yellow Sole (glossy), White Innocenza (glossy), Black Vulcano (glossy), Blue Vivace (matte).
Vespa S comes with the immobilizer anti-theft system as standard, indicated by the light in the instrument panel, when active. Vespa S is also equipped with a functional glove box, extremely handy for daily use to store small objects like rain gear, sunglasses or gloves. The load capacity is also ensured by the helmet compartment, as well as the bag hook, indispensable for taking full advantage of the footboard. Another feature highlighted in this model is the USB charging port which enhances convenience for riders when they want to charge their phones, tablets and small electronic devices.
