A brief history of the Vespa Scooters

Vespa (meaning ‘wasp’ in both Italian and Latin) originated from Italy and was created by Enrico Piaggio, son of Rinaldo Piaggio (Piaggio’s founder) when he saw a need for inexpensive and modern transportation for Italians after the Second World War.

When Enrico saw his first scooter design he is alleged to have cried “Sembra una vespa” which translate into English as “It looks like a wasp” and the brand name Vespa was born.

The iconic Vespa design has the engine beside the rear wheel, allowing for a complete through of the scooter; it also has large floorboard footrests and a large front fairing designed for wind and splash protection.

Vespa has featured heavily in the ‘Mod’ subculture of the 1960s, with many ‘Mods’ adopting often customised scooters from either Vespa or Lambretta as part of their style along with fashion and music influences. These scooters were cheap to run and purchase for the British youth who found themselves in low-paying jobs.

Vespa’s low running costs and iconic design make it a hugely popular model still today, with many restored Vespas in circulation today throughout the world.

Some of the current models include the Vespa LX 50, 125 and 150 (representing their respective engine sizes) their top speeds are low but fuel efficiency is spectacular. The Vespa GTS 250ie (with GTS standing for Granturismo Sport) has an engine size of 244cc and a top speed of 73mph, with restylings including the GTS300ie which is reported to be a response to Honda’s SH300i.
