Conversion: Vespa Sprint 125 ccm
We take a matte black Vespa Sprint with 125 cc, which comes directly from the dealer "off the shelf" and see what we can change and improve in terms of "look" and "tuning". Our sales manager, Stephan Hufschmid, compiles a comprehensive list of the relevant parts and explains in the video linked below how best to proceed in the online shop. We offer you various ways to equip your Vespa with our parts. Convenient, clear and of course the parts will fit our Vespa Sprint 125 cc exactly.
Fresh look for the Vespa Sprint 125
First of all, the actual condition of the Vespa Sprint is examined. The customer wants less chrome on the scooter, so Stephan recommends a different luggage rack and a new leg shield. In the steering head area, the decorative ring of the lamp, the brake levers, grips and rear view mirrors, among other things, can be replaced. Not everything has to be chosen uniformly matt or shiny, because even a stylish mixture makes the Vespa Sprint look sportier.
We continue with the exhaust, which looks a little boring in the standard version. Stephan recommends the ARROW Urban racing exhaust with catalytic converter.which does not provide more power, but a completely different sound. "The neighbours will be happy because they'll hear you turn into the street a little earlier," the SIP sales manager quips. The Vespa Sprint also gets an LED tail light rear light.
The entire list of visual changes can be found on this Notepad. As you can see, most of the chrome parts have been replaced by sportier versions.
Smooth tuning for the Vespa Sprint 125
After selecting the vehicle and manufacturer in the online shop, only tuning parts that fit this model exactly are displayed. Stephan first recommends a new shock absorber for the safety of the rider. The shock absorber supplied from the factory has only three preset levels of spring preload, whereas the recommended model from Bitubo is infinitely adjustable by means of the knurled screw. A gas-pressure shock absorber will, for example, put away potholes much more gently than a damper that works with oil pressure. And cornering is also noticeably more stable. If you would like to take a closer look at "shock absorbers", it is best to watch our video series on this topic.
For tuning beginners, Stephan does not recommend any modifications to the cylinder, but the heart of the drive can be tackled: the variator. To respond to the slight increase in revs, a reinforced V-belt from Malossi is installed. Also a clutch and clutch bell, also from Malossi, so that all parts are matched. Most of you will not have a fully equipped workshop at home, but with the tools on the watch list, you can easily master the project.
You can also use the Notepad for Tuning can be viewed in its entirety. With just one click, all the parts can be placed in the shopping basket and ordered. And now you can completely restyle your Vespa Sprint 125 and give it a moderate tune-up. You can see how the scooter looks after the conversion in the video below.
