Since inaugurating their first showroom at the Kota Damansara vicinity, Naza Premira has been actively promoting the Vespa marque for a good 3 years and counting in the country. Naza Premira first brought in the Vespa LX150cc, GTV250 and GT300, and the Paggio 150cc. They then introduced the limited-edition Vespa LX 150 in 2013 and rebooted the LX 150 with LXV150 3V in April this year. To date, Naza Premira has 9 dealerships in the Peninsular, with two more showrooms in the works.
Vespa Primavera takes up design sentiments from the Vespa 946
Fast forward to present time, they presented the new Vespa Primavera a scooter with a design language from the Vespa 946. The Vespa marque’s popularity has been increasing through the years, according to Naza Premira, thanks its relevancy as a lifestyle mobility two-wheeler. Now, the new Vespa Primavera, the sixth variant available, has reached Naza Premira showrooms.
The Vespa Primavera is a youthful, innovative, swift and dynamic looking scooter that takes up the sister brand Piaggio’s many technologies. The new scooter features LED DRLs and an improved suspension setup. A button above the glove box raises the seat to reveal a compartment that could fit a full-face helmet (if ever a full face is even needed to ride a Vespa).
The scooter’s design language is all about functionality, according to the Piaggio principle. Piaggio places great emphasis on the Primavera’s refined look and makes it look both traditional and new at the same time. This new scooter takes styling hues from an all-time favorite, the Vespa 946 with sleek lines, a tapered rear, and the whole nine yards. Powered by a new air-cooled single-cylinder 3-valve engine with electronic fuel injection, a new bore and stroke and friction-reducing crankshaft, the Vespa Primavera gets better efficiency, fuel economy, torque and take-off. The engine mounting system with 2-position arms and a double rubber absorption damper make for a smoother ride on the Primavera, thanks in part to reduced vibrations (approximately 40% lesser than the average Vespa).
The steel sheet bodywork provides a level of rigidity previously unseen without compromising the weight of the scooter’s structure. An increased wheelbase and length enhance stability whilst also retaining the Primavera’s characteristic lightweight steering and agility. Other highlights include increased space between the handlebar and saddle, adjusted saddle height and flat two-seat saddle.
