Autumn time is EICMA time, and we have looked around for you at the largest motorcycle show in the world. What´s new for us Vespa enthusiasts? The manufacturer usually present the new models, this time for the model year 2020. The big bang was missing but there are interesting special models from Pontedera to see. 

In collaboration with US designer Sean Wotherspoon a special model was designed which is accompanied by a streetwear collection:

There is a (RED) version of Primavera which supports the fight against AIDS. 

For the GTS models the Italians looked around in the 60s and came up with the special model "Vespa Racing Sixties". There is a green and a white colour version:

There will be a 70km/h version of the Vespa Elettrica, in contrast to the standard 45km/h version.
