Vesper is a global icon of urban mobility and the Primavera one-to-five has played a big part in the Italian company's history originally launching in 1968 that name has made a return in 2014 offering fun affordable and stylish transport for a cosmopolitan commuter and it's available in learn illegal flavors of 50cc as well as this 125cc vespers have always been very elegant little bikes and this Primavera is no exception borrowing some styling cues from the flagship Vespa 946 albeit with some added practicality and comfort that you'd expect with a daily rider it still uses those traditional design elements of curved front shield and skinny tie graphic though these daytime running LED lights the LED tail light even the digital information on the dash like a clock and a fuel gauge are some small nods to modernity the seat is very skinny so it helps you get on the bike and off it very easily and these floorboards are similarly slimline which helps most riders get both feet flat on the floor to aid maneuverability storage is good too you've got a decent glove box up front for your wallets in your keys under seat storage for a full face helmet with a basic toolkit while these dedicated rear foot pegs are great when you're taken on a pillion mechanically speaking this Primavera uses vespers well-trusted 120 4.5 CC 3 valve units that develops just shy of 11 brake horsepower and produces a faintly ridiculous fuel consumption figure of 110 miles per gallon you've also got a traditional front disc rear drum setup if you take a closer look at this front single fork you'll spot this hanging pin which offers both transverse and longitudinal suspension movement and that really helps rider comfort the compact dimensions of the Primavera and the sheer effortlessness of this twisting go performance make it such a brilliant urban commuter depending on your mood you can go cruising through traffic soak up all the scenery and enjoy all the compliments that this brings and other times you can be as cheeky as you like dodging and dying through the traffic nobody bats an eyelid granted you're not gonna be set in any world speed records on this thing but still the 125cc engine is more than up for the task gives you plenty of grunt for the town centers so it just gives you the confidence you need to get by nice bike if you've got a bit of dual carriageway on your commute to work as well you'll also be pleased to hear that the Primavera will top out at 70 miles an hour so you've got nothing to fear there lots of scooters can be a functional dependable and economical commuter but not many can do all of this while having the swagger and style of the Primavera you're not just buying a bike here you're buying a moving buzzing extension of the Vespa brand itself and in that respect the Primavera is in a league of one
