Vespa models - new colors, less power and a lot of lifestyle
We had changes to the engine (Euro 4) in the exhibition news of Intermot in Cologne already discussed. In Milan, Piaggio is showing new colors and a lot of lifestyle.
A special model of the Vespa GTS 300 Super in green metallic with aluminum applications in CNC style, e.g. cascade, fender nipples. Interesting cascade with an even more interesting horn section - opinions will differ on this ;-)
More deets: Bitubo shock absorber in front, only for the trade fair or series? In any case, the adjustable levers are standard! CNC footrests, mirrors in CNC design, new oil control screw and vario cover.
Personally, I like the Vespa Seigiorni very much. Piaggio thus ties in with the early 50s, because sports models of the Vespa have been produced parallel to the series vehicles since 1947. The Vespa Sport, known as the “Sei Giorni” after the model that had great success in the 1951 international regularity race of the same name. An original Vespa Sei Giorni is incredibly valuable.
DellOrto has been the standard supplier for the Italian motorcycle and scooter industry since 1933. Dell'Orto was the largest supplier of two-wheeled carburetors in Europe from the 1960s to the 1980s; today the company works closely with Bosch and Mikuni. At the Scooter Center of course you get all available DellOrto carburetors and DellOrto spare parts such as nozzles, carburetor needles and slides quickly and cheaply.
The Scomadi with 300cc was never realized. Rumors say Piaggio has refused to supply 300cc engines to a competitor product. Today a prototype with me 400ccm. At the moment everyone at Scomadi is very busy, we will try to find out later which engine is being installed.
Polini - Scooter Center is an Official Polini Dealer

Polini has beautiful scooters on the stand again. News from Polini: eg mounted pressure plate for the Smallframe.
Bell helmets - Our personal favorite helmets - The Bell Custom 500 and Bullit are now also available in a scrambler design.

Hello! Is there any information about the Vespa PX at EICMA (is a new model coming? Has production finally stopped? Or something similar)? MfG, Horstl
we had already received the sad information at the Intermot:
“+++ Ciao Bella - who would have thought that we would miss the PX one day?
The Vespa PX is history. Even if it will be exhibited again at the Intermot 2016, it belongs to the "old iron" with the Euro 3 standard. According to Piaggio, all orders received up to June 2016 will still be delivered. "
