It’s some time ago that we did a real scooter review and to keep some tradition we like to look at brands and models not sold on every corner. The Vespa Primavera 150 3Vie is a product from Piaggio’s Vietnamese factory. The Vespa Primavera is in Thailand available as a 125 or 150cc. Our review concentrate on the 115,900 THB Vespa Primavera 150 3Vie.
I was looking forward to test the newer, fresher models which now feature three valve engines. The outgoing models were also excellent machines, I was therefore a bit skeptic how they could improve on excellence. With the new Vespa Primavera 150 you would hope slightly more power and better fuel economy and less pollution. They do. More importantly I wanted to focus on the feel rather than actual performance of the scooter.
For many the ‘monocoque’ steel chassis identifies Vespa as unique. The newest, smaller bodies are still galvanized and have been strengthened to make them even more robust. And they are all expensive to manufacture when compared to almost every other scooter in the market.
