There is a lot of love going on for the humble scooter in modern day transportation, and the Vespa brand is lauded by many, transcending generations for its ease of use, versatility and its iconic look.

With the Malaysian Vespa 70th Anniversary celebration, dubbed as “The Largest Vespa Gathering” held at the Publika Shopping Gallery on Saturday, 19th November 2016, Naza Premira Sdn Bhd – the sole importer and distributor of Vespa products in Malaysia – has put six new Vespa variants on display which are now on offer to the Malaysian public.

The three new variants include the 70th Anniversary models – the Vespa GTS, Vespa PX and the Vespa Primavera; the Vespa Sprint ABS and Vespa Primavera ABS as two newly upgraded 2016 models and
the recently introduced Vespa Sprint Adventure.

“Yes, Vespa is 70 years young this year, and we’ve come a long way since the company produced its first scooter, the Vespa 98, back in 1946,” said Farouk Faisal, Chief Operating Officer of Naza Premira Sdn Bhd. “Our Heritage area summarises most of the important milestones and models that Vespa has achieved since then,” Farouk added.

All three limited production-run 70th Anniversary models are finished in a unique Azzurro 70th Anniversary colour with the seats upholstered in brown leather with an embossed 70th Anniversary logo. Each and every model comes garnished with a chrome rear carrier and a custom-made 70th Anniversary brown leather carrying case that snugly fits at the rear.
