The Vespa in the 21st Century

The Vespa scooters weren’t born yesterday. I find their stories so fascinating to learn. To finish what I started, here is the history of the Vespa scooter up until today!

1991

  • Vespa 50 Special Revival – This model was one of the most popular in the sixties. Piaggio decides to replicate it with a fresher look to respond to the high demand.

1996

  • Vespa ET2/ET4 – We’re talking about a new level of comfort now!

2001

  • Vespa Ferrari Et4 150 – This model was an homage to the Ferrari team. They won the Formula 1 World Championship in 2000. The same material used in the Ferrari was used to produce this great looking Vespa.
