For the first time since Didi Resources was appointed as the new Piaggio and Vespa distributor here in Malaysia, they’ve officially unveiled their latest Vespa offering in the form of the 2020 Vespa Sprint S 150 and Vespa Primavera S Special Edition 150 for the Malaysian market.
Due to restrictions placed during the Movement Control Order placed by the Malaysian government to curb COVID-19, the official preview was done online via the Vespa Malaysia Facebook page for both models. Nevertheless, both these 155cc special edition scooters are now available for booking for those who are interested.
According to Mr Rewi Hamid Bugo, Chairman Didi Resources Sdn Bhd., “It is our utmost priority to deliver the best, latest Vespa products to our loyal customers. We are proud to announce on top of the latest models, our pricing for parts and accessories have also been adjusted lower and this is one part of many initiatives to provide greater value to our customers moving forward.”
2020 Vespa Sprint S 150 – RM16,900
Vespa’s youngest and sportiest offering just got a lot sportier thanks to some new colour offerings to suit today’s demands for stylish rides. Vespa lovers old and new can appreciate what the new Sprint has to offer in terms of looks as well as riding experience, thanks to its 12-inch aluminium wheels, USB charging port, and more.
The new Sprint is powered by a slightly updated 155cc single-cylinder i-Get engine which produces a healthy 13hp at 7,750rpm and 12.8Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. This offers a fuel consumption rate as far as 44km for every litre of fuel. That’s quite a distance for travel considering its fuel tank capacity has been bumped up to eight litres.
As stated above, the 2020 Vespa Sprint S is priced at RM16,900 (excluding road tax & insurance). Customers can choose between three colour options: Yellow Sole, Black Opaco, White Innocenza, and the best-seller of all, Grey Materia. Early birds who pre-order these models via Lazada will get a set of accessories worth RM700 together with the bike.
2020 Vespa Primavera S Special Edition 150 – RM18,300
If classic is what you’re after, then the new Primavera will definitely tick all the boxes with the addition of some tech upgrades to bring it up to date. Catered to someone with a more sophisticated taste in two-wheels, the combination of timeless bodywork plus contrasting sporty stickers further elevates the overall façade of the new Primavera.
Some highlights of the Primavera S Special Edition 150 are 12-inch aluminium five-spoke alloy rims, all LED lights, daytime-running lights, front ABS, and anti-theft system (Immobilizer). The storage compartment up front also comes with a USB charging port for charging of small devices on the go like your phones, tablets, etc.
Similar to the Sprint S 150, the Primavera comes ready with a 155cc single-cylinder i-Get engine that churns out 13hp and 12.8Nm of maximum torque. Performance-wise, both these models offer a smooth and comfortable riding experience perfect for some stress-free city riding as well as relatively low fuel consumption.
The new Vespa Primavera S Special Edition is available in two different colour options: Matte glossy Orange Tramonto and matte Grey Stile. Head over to the nearest Vespa Malaysia authorised dealers or place your pre-order online via Lazada Malaysia & get accessories worth RM700.
