The Vespa 50 is one of the best loved scooters in the world. There is good reason for that. The scooter is a home-run of industrial design, combining beautiful bodywork with an extremely compact motor. These scooters are extremely light, and quite nimble. They were made in different motor sizes from 50cc to 125cc, all with essentially the same chassis. The chassis did have minor changes over the many decades these were built. This one is perhaps the most popular iteration, the 50 Special. While it started off as a 50, we decided that it needed a bit more “go” for our busy 21st century roads. So, we replaced the original three-speed 50cc motor with a four-speed 125 from a Vespa Primavera. Not only that, but we upgraded the 125cc top end for added performance and installed an upgraded exhaust. This little Vespa really sings now, and we just get a huge kick out of riding it. A fast smallframe is like riding no other scooter. Add to that, the eye-catching color that really suits the smallframe, and we think this one is a winner. Get on, and ride… once you do, we know you’ll like this scoot as much as we do!
