Vespa Primavera Launch

The highly anticipated Primavera has now been officially launched. Primavera is Vespa’s new small frame LX replacement. Available in a 125 and a 150 cc version, the Primavera is now in dealers across Australia.

We were at the Primavera launch this week in Melbourne and will have a full report shortly. Initially, we can tell you that things have progressed in a fairly big way over the 9 year old LX. The Primavera feels physically larger, the wheelbase is actually longer and overall ride quality has been enhanced substantially.

The Primavera is far smoother, carries less vibes on take off and is overall now very refined. Riding duties over the launch consisted of inner city commuting to a longer freeway stint which did see the Primavera proving it has some serious upper speed credentials. Vespa have harnessed the 3 valve engines potential and with new engine mounting points, the Primavera feels like a different machine.

Other notable features include a larger more usable underseat storage area, LED running lights and a new electronic analogue/digital dash with mode function. The switchgear is all new and the styling has taken cues from the 946 manual. Wheel size has been upped by an inch and the seat is larger and far more supportive, it also has a spring that helps with opening and closing duties.

The Primavera has the job of taking the Vespa brand well into the future. First impressions count and we can tell you confidently that the Primavera has all the ingredients, each change has contributed to making a real difference. The quality looks good, the ride quality has improved significantly and the overall design is fresh and modern.  

The 125 has been priced at $5290 plus on roads whilst the 150 comes in at $5990 plus. We’ll have the full update shortly.
