We’ve put together a few well-proven and simple tips here on how to prepare your Vespa or motor scooter in general for winter. Your little darling will thank you with a joyful start next spring!
If you winter your Vespa properly, you will have hardly any problems at the first start of the season. In principle, of course, the Vespa can be used on dry days in winter without any problems. But the salt on the road in the northern hemisphere finds its way to rubber and metal even on dry days and should be washed off thoroughly after the end of the journey.
In order to better prevent rust from building up on the surfaces during the period of use, it is advisable to wash and clean the scooter thoroughly once. The dirt that remains mainly on the floor panel binds the air humidity longer and thus ensures early corrosion. If you have scratches up to the sheet metal, it is best to dab with varnish afterwards, if necessary a layer of anti-corrosion oil will help.
