In line with Vespa’s 70th Anniversary this year, Vespa Malaysia (Naza Premira) is celebrating this milestone with a big carnival, dubbed as the “Largest Vespa Gathering”.
The gathering will take over the entire Square and Boulevard area of Publika Shopping Gallery on Saturday, 19 November, from 11am to 9.30pm. To commemorate the brand’s extensive heritage, the Boulevard area of Publika will see various classic Vespas on display, each with its own decorated backdrop to depict its illustrious past, as well as one with a local ‘kopitiam’ inspired photowall to tie in the popular brand to domestic Vespa history.
The “Largest Vespa Convoy” is also planned for the celebration. The convoy will be flagged off from Naza Automall and will make its way through interesting parts of the capital city before arriving at the final destination in Publika. It is estimated that about 500 Vespas will be participating in the ride. Riders and pillions, upon registration confirmation, will receive limited edition Vespa 70th Anniversary merchandise that are not sold anywhere else.
Convoy participants will be given ample parking space nearby the Square open-air area of Publika where Vespa will have on display three units of its 70th Anniversary models: The Vespa GTS, Vespa PX and Vespa Primavera; two units of their updated 2016 models: Vespa Sprint ABS and Vespa Primavera ABS; and the recently introduced Vespa Sprint Adventure variant.
The Square area, which has all the new bikes on display, will also be the main focal point with various entertainment performances from top local artistes: Amy Search, Maha Jefry and Tasha Aleia; plus celebrity appearances by Joey G and Nabila Huda.
In addition, food stalls and family-oriented activities including face painting, air-brush tattoo and carnival games will also be available to ensure that the whole family will have things to do and activities to enjoy. The list of goodies goes even longer as there will be a Lucky Draw contest, offering the Vespa S125 as the grand prize and other great prizes such as a Vespa Leather Jacket, Vespa Windbreaker, Vespasus Vespa owners, Vespa fans and those who want to know about what Vespa lifestyle is all about, are invited to come and join in on Vespa’s 70th Anniversary celebration.
