Vespa is coming home

Markus has now arrived in Italy with his Vespa via Switzerland and Austria

We don't yet know exactly how he spent yesterday evening and night. I am convinced: the European Football Championship final was definitely a great time for a stage stay in Italy on his Vespa Gentleman Giro!

In any case, one can see from his descriptions: he is so far very happy and grateful for the many nice people he meets and donations he can collect. Of course he enjoys his Vespa and the reliable engine. My greatest respect: almost 1.000 km in 9 days fully packed on an old Vespa with 50 cubic meters ...

Big VRA Cup Final 2019 in Jesolo

The Scooter Center / bgm sponsors the Vespa Racing Austia Cup. In sensational, late summer weather, the grand finale of the VRA Cup 2019, on the beautiful Pista Azzurra in Jesolo, on the northern Adriatic Sea. The track, which was built in 1962, has a decades-old racing tradition and has seen many championship and world championship decisions. Therefore, it was an extreme honor for us to be able to host our Cup Final 2019 on this traditional floor.

The last two races of this season were also on Excitement can hardly be surpassed.

Final after a long season

After a long season, Christian Rapf from the & is Racing Team had traveled 12 points behind the Italian Parmakit works driver Paolo Birtele to the Cup final in Jesolo - Italy and nobody expected that he would win the 2019 season crown for the young Italian in the Scooter GP class could still dispute. After a lightning start in the first run, Christian Rapf was able to keep the lead for a few laps, whereby the two drivers were in a league of their own. However, Birtele was able to take advantage of a tiny inattention on the part of the Upper Austrian, and thus in the end again scored 25 points for himself. At 15 p.m., the 00th and last race of the Scooter GP class was on the program. The points deficit had increased to 10 points due to the victory in the first run and the fastest qualifying time of Birtele, but the number 18 started the showdown on the Pista Azzurra with maximum motivation. After another great start, Christian Rapf did not give up the lead for 241 laps …… ..and then …… yes then he was rewarded with the luck of the capable, because Birtele could not finish the race with a technical defect. With a little luck, but thanks to extremely consistent performance, the 5 championship title went well-deserved to Christian Rapf from the & is Racing Team, for which the Vespa Racing Austria event team would like to congratulate them warmly.

After the title in the Marken Cup of our main sponsor PARMAKIT in 2018, which was still very close to Christoph STOFFI Maier in Upper Austria, the big cup final in 2019 finally happened and Kevin Höfler from the SFR team won the championship with a total of 6 race wins and 32 points ahead, decide for yourself. Christoph Maier from the Stoffi's Garage team and Maiko Jandl from the JLP team follow on the seats. With up to 20 starters from Austria, Italy and Hungary, the TROFEO PARMAKIT CHALLENGER 2019 was by far the strongest class in the VRA Cup and thanks to the extremely balanced engine performance, the most exciting duels took place here, regardless of whether it was about victory, the midfield or the end of the field goes. In this class, the focus is simply on driving skills!

Scooter GP Ltd. class

In the 2019 Scooter GP Ltd. Herbert Siegl secured his place on the top step of the podium, second place went to Günter Sedlacek, followed by Julian Köllner.

Street racer class

The championship of the street racer class again went to Christian Fleis, followed by Christoph Carniel and Hubert Leitgeb on the places.

Last but not least, apart from our main sponsor Parmakit, we would especially like to say a big thank you to the Beer, Fix it Easy and Michelin nursing home. We would also like to thank BGM, Egig Performance, AF Parts, KyTronic, Castrol and Faber! Despite the steadily growing field of starters, it would not be possible to run a racing series of this size without the support of our partners.

Vespa Primavera 1968Vespa Primavera ET3 1976Vespa Modern Primavera 2013Vespa Modern Primavera 2018

Vespa Primavera 1968 VMA2T

Vespa PV 125 Primavera 1968

The first Vespa Primavera came on the market in 1968.

Light and fresh lines, brilliant performance, simplicity and sheer driving pleasure: Vespa Primavera comes like a breath of fresh air into a world that is hungry for change. It became one of the most durable and popular models in Vespa history. Its agile handling and its speed, together with its elegance and lightness, which the girls loved, contributed to its extraordinary sales success.

Piaggio's model of success was launched in 1967 as a facelift of the Vespa 125 Nuova presented and developed into the most successful Vespa model with over 240.000 units built in the 14-year construction period. Compared to the Vespa 125 Nuova, the frame of the Vespa 125 Primavera is slightly longer, but the leg shield and the footplate are slightly narrower. It also has a luggage compartment in the left side cheek. The hexagonal Piaggio emblem is emblazoned above the cascade and the lettering “125 primavera” is located above the rear light. A total of three series were produced, the first with the rear light of the Vespa 90 SS and an italic “Vespa” lettering on the leg shield, the second from 1973 with a modern, straight lettering on the front and the third series from 1976 parallel to the Vespa 125 Primavera ET3. Production ended in 1982. A 121 cm³ engine with 5,6 hp provided the motorization. Originally there were two colors, Biancospino (hawthorn white) with a black bench and later also Marrone metallizzato (brown metallic) with a cream-colored bench.

Here you can find all parts for the Primavera VMA2T

Vespa Primavera ET3 1976 VMB1T

Vespa Primavera ET3 1976

Vespa Primavera remained on the market for 15 years and in 1976 it became the Version Primavera ET3 (VMB1T) introduced.

The Vespa 125 Primavera ET3 expanded the very popular in 1976 Vespa 125 Primavera, which was sold on, and visually hardly differs from this one. The name was derived from the newly introduced electronic ignition and the third transfer channel (ET3 stands for Elettronica 3 Traversi), the visible distinguishing feature was the new exhaust, which was led around the engine in a banana shape (“ET3 banana”). All of these measures also resulted in a slightly higher engine output. The Vespa 125 Primavera ET3 was delivered in numerous colors. In 1983 production ended after 144.000 vehicles had been built.

(ET3 stands for Elettronica 3 Traversi) where E stands for electronic ignition and T3 for three transfer channels (Travasi 3). So the Primavera ET3 is a model that is characterized by a

  • electronic ignition, the three overcurrent channels channels in the cylinder,
  • a new and longer silencer from the 90s SS
  • and the ignition key on the handlebar.

All of this led to an even higher performance and confirms the legendary sportiness of the Primavera.

Here you can find all parts for the Primavera ET3

Vespa Modern Primavera 2013

Vespa Modern Primavera 125 2013

As a modern vespa model, there is the great return of the Vespa Primavera in 2013:

  • Vespa Primavera 50 2T / ZAPC53200
  • Vespa Primavera 50 4T4V / ZAPC53100
  • Vespa Primavera 125 3V / ZAPM81100
  • Vespa Primavera 150 3V / ZAPM81200

Young, innovative, technologically groundbreaking, agile and dynamic and with a view to protecting the environment. So the Primavera comes back on stage as the protagonist of her time and inherits all the freshness and joie de vivre that go along with the story of a model that is cult in the Vespa family tree.

The Modern Vespa Primavera is available in brown, red, blue, black and white.

You can find great accessories, spare and tuning parts in our Vespa Primavera shop, choose your model:

Pinasco

Vespa rod models with reed valve intake

The Wideframe/ rod models (low headlight) Pinasco presented the Nordkapp cylinder with its new feature: the reed valve intake. Of course there is also an intake maniforld, this time not for a Polini CP carburettor, but for a Dell'Orto 22mm carburettor which Pinasco will offer with throttle lever.

Besides the genuine engine casing with three studs and the possible reed valve intake, as already showed at the Vespa world days in Rooms, Pinasco also presented the engine casing with four studs: thanks to this feature it is possible to mount all PX 177 tuning cylinders.

Eurolambretta 2017

Scooter Center with bgm booth at the Eurolambretta

1.800 Lambretta crazy people from all over the world met this weekend at the Adria Raceway for the 28th Eurolambretta 2017 in Italy.

We were of course at the start with our stand and, with bgm TUNING, above all presented our own products. With 35 degrees of heat at our booth, we worked up a sweat. But thanks to the many nice people, the great conversations and the overwhelming feedback, we rocked the Eurolambretta and provided everyone with merchandise and advice.

Here you can find our video for the Eurolambretta 2017

Lambretta World Rally with Scooter Center

This weekend it went for that Scooter Center Team to Monza / Italy to set up our stand at the 70 ° Lambretta Anniversary World Rally.

The venue was in a class of its own and should be known to everyone: Autodromo Nazionale Monza, the Formula 1 track!

VIDEO 70 ° Lambretta Anniversary World Rally Monza

70 ° Lambretta Anniversary World Rally Monza

Fortunately, we missed the hail showers on Friday and arrived in Monza on Saturday morning with the best Italian weather. the Scooter Center / bgm booth was an immediate crowd puller.

The trip on Friday went to the former Innocenti factories - and some Lambretisti, armed with screwdrivers, bought souvenirs from the former factory premises?

Saturday noon the highlight of the event: around 500 scooters were free to drive on the racetrack for 2 hours.

Overall, the organization was perceived by some of the participants as a bit chaotic - but let's be honest: we love Italy for that, in the end everything worked out and we have another favorite spot in Italy.

Fair Eicma Livetiker 2016

EICMA 2016

It starts, we are at the Eicma in Milan and provide you with the trade fair live ticker:

Vespa/Piaggio

Electric Vespa

As already reported by us here, the comes from Piaggio Electric Vespa.

Piaggio E-Bike: WI-BIKE

The motor concept of the e-bikes shown is compatible with the e-Vespa. The Piaggio Wi-Bike is fully connected and can be operated with an app. There is also GPS theft protection. Electromobility seems to have taken an important part in Piaggio's portfolio here.

  • Let the technology guide you: your Wi-Bike and your smartphone communicate with each other.
  • Download the WI-Bike app. Connect your smartphone to your Wi-Bike via Bluetooth. Touch & Go, determine your personal setup.
  • Choose your destination. Take off.
  • Three special performance modes via app. You have the choice between: City, Hill and Standard
  • The variable motor support adapts to your needs.
  • Challenge yourself! Achieve your goals. Wi-Bike is your very own personal trainer.

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.

Dell'Orto

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.

Scomadi

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-eicma-milano-2016-13

More Polini News:

Polini has beautiful scooters on the stand again. News from Polini: eg mounted pressure plate for the Smallframe.

BELL

Bell helmets - Our personal favorite helmets - The Bell Custom 500 and Bullit are now also available in a scrambler design.

gogoro

Gogoro: innovative electric scooter with battery replacement system. The concept is probably the future, the design a matter of taste.

Malossi

Also at Malossi: beautiful scooters on the stand. For many of us that was the beginning of scooter riding: the Ciao.
Malossi still offers an extensive tuning program, which you can get from us: Piaggio Ciao parts
Classic Vespa novelty at Malossi - a straight-toothed primary transmission for Vespa Cosa clutch.

FACO

Faco is a proven provider for Scooter accessories and chrome accessories meanwhile, of course, also for the modern Vespa models such as GT, GTS & Co.

faco-vespa-eicma-milano-2016-1 faco-vespa-eicma-milano-2016-2

Pinasco

In addition to Polini and Malossi, another tuning specialist with home advantage on the Eicma: Pinasco
In the last few years Pinasco has been offering the new Motor housings for Vespa Switch scooters or crankshafts with interchangeable balancing weights, again clearly gas.

Lord of the Pistons - Meteor

On our last one Italy trip we visited Meteor in Milan. Here is our video for the Piston manufacturer our trust:

We are absolutely thrilled with how professionally Meteor deals with pistons. If you thought that the piston was just a cylindrical component and only the piston clearance, the position of the rings and pins, if necessary the window and the length had to match, you may be surprised that every piston has a has the right shape.
Meteor works in the thousandths range by adapting the piston to the shape of the cylinder liner at various positions on the piston skirt. This guarantees high performance with maximum service life.

Due to production reasons, no cylinder in a batch is always the same. This is why there are usually A and B pistons, for example, which are optimally adapted to the cylinder shape. Make sure to choose the same letter (A, B, C) when you choose a new one Replacement piston order for your cylinder.

meteor-piston-10

Seen from above, a piston is never completely round; strictly speaking, it is oval:

meteor-piston-6

The piston manufacture

During the tour of the Meteor factory, we noticed how much modern high-end technology but also still real manual work now perfect piston is needed.

We have brought you pictures of the process of creating a piston, from development to the blank to finishing from Milan:

Introduced: the piston in your scooter

The Piston is a cylindrical engine component that moves up and down in the cylinder of your scooter (if the cylinders are upright) or to and fro (if the cylinders are lying down).

Task of the piston

The task of the piston is to convert physical pressure into motion in a reciprocating internal combustion engine and thereby drive the machine.

Components of the piston

The piston has the following functional areas:

  • an Piston crownwho is in contact with the medium,
  • its Piston skirt: the cylindrical component that fits into the cylinder bore with a little play -> "piston play",
  • the material moisture meter shows you the Piston pin with its bearing that connects the piston with the connecting rod.

Nowadays, pistons for engines are mainly made of cast aluminum alloys, whereas in the past they were often made of cast iron.

A characteristic feature of the pistons in Otto engines is their significantly thinner-walled design, which allows the engine to run at higher speeds due to its lower weight. In the area of ​​the 1st piston ring groove, hard anodizing (hard anodizing) can sometimes be used to reduce wear and tear and micro-welds.

The piston crown partially carries flat pockets to accommodate the valves protruding into the combustion chamber.

The piston skirt is used to guide the piston in the cylinder barrel and is coated with a lubricating varnish on most pistons. To save weight, many high-speed four-stroke engines have the piston skirt on the sides (at the piston pin openings) offset inwards (“slipper” piston).

The piston crown

The piston crown has one or more grooves for the piston rings, the uppermost of which are the compression rings and at least one lower one serves as an oil control ring. Most pistons have two compression rings and one oil control ring. So-called 2-ring pistons with only one compression ring are also used for racing engines.

The piston skirt

In the case of two-stroke engines, the piston skirts can also have windows. In addition, most two-stroke pistons have locking pins in the piston ring grooves to prevent the piston ring joints from twisting and jamming in the control windows of the cylinder liner. In old engines up to the 1950s, a nose piston was common in 2-stroke engines to enable the gas exchange or purging process. More modern two-stroke engines, however, usually have a flat piston head, since the purging or the gas exchange takes place as reverse purging with a change of direction in the cylinder.

The piston pin

The power transmission from the piston to the connecting rod takes place via the piston pin. This is stored in a bore in the piston in the inwardly thickened part of the shirt. This bore often has grooves for circlips (“Seegerrings”) at the end in order to limit the lateral displacement of the piston pin.

Run & Race 2016, Pomposa, Italy - September 16-18.09.2016, XNUMX

That was last weekend Scooter Center drove to the Adriatic coast for the Run & Race finals of the European Scooter Challenge. Thanks to the participation of the British Scooter Sport Organization (BSSO) and several other international drivers, the spectators are offered a good spectacle on the kart track.

With the Lambretta to the Adriatic

Sounds like a vacation, but the vacation is long gone. We had 3.000 kilometers and a few days of hard work in Bella Italia ahead of us. Our bus was packed with equipment and our best bgm parts for that Run & Race Italy

The journey started on Thursday in Cologne. After 1.000 km from Lake Garda, on Friday we drove the remaining 250 km to Pomposa on the Adriatic Sea with the scooters. So on Friday it is time to leave early and the tour group splits up into a tour guide and an escort vehicle. The tour guide is done by two Race Tour Lambrettas with 28 Polini carburetors and the bgm big box:

  1. Lambretta DL 150 with 225 bgm PRO RaceTour
  2. Lambretta LI 150 1st series 195 bgm PRO RaceTour

Lambretta DL & LI

 

Tough test drive in the rain and pothole slalom

Test drive in Bella Italia: summer, blue skies and every now and then a stop at the car grill. That's the plan! Half an hour after the start, reality overtakes our wishful thinking. After the motorway tunnel in Verona we drive into the pouring rain. Fortunately, there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing - and we had plenty of that with us!

But nothing helps and until shortly before Pomposa we continue on the Autostrada in the rain.
Fortunately, we did not notice the violent storm directly. Several cars in guard rails and trenches, but give an impression of what must have been going on shortly before us.

Ride a scooter in the rain

Despite the capricious weather conditions and potholes, we are quite brisk. The cruising speed with the motors is around 110 km / h (GPS). The new TomTom Vio shows us the way. Both the bgm motors and the bgm chassis keep what is promised and the journey is quick and easy. The bottom line is a great tour that is a lot of fun.

The video of the scooter tour

Big Run & Race in Italy

As the rain stops a bit before Pomposa and the thick cloud cover tears up, we luckily do not arrive completely drenched. The welcome from Rimini Lambretta Centers Marco and the organizers of SIR is warm as usual. After the first cups of white wine, we first move into our luxurious bungalow.

Our luxury bungalow

There will be a 'menu' on both evenings. To be honest, we imagined it to be quite different in Italy ... Both evenings will be quite long for Philipp thanks to the super nighters.

The breakfast on Saturday morning is great, unfortunately we don't have much time because the stand needs to be set up and we are excited to see what awaits us. Breakfast by the sea in the best weather.

run-race-italy-2016_-18

Thanks to our routine, setting up our stand is quite easy for us - at least for those who were sober in bed before 5 a.m.
Accompanied by the incessant howling of sophisticated scooter motors, we present our bgm product range throughout the day and have many great conversations with old and new friends from:

  • Italy
  • Schweiz
  • Germany
  • Austria
  • Greece
  • England
  • Cyprus

Our photos from the weekend

RACE - The races

The exciting races take place directly across the street, where fierce battles were held down to the last meter. The Italian teams from CASA Performance and Parmakit dominate the big classes here - LINK bgm TEILE RENNTEAM. Our Austrian friend Stoffi impressively wins the standard class with the Polini engine -> LINK Shop standard class. Michi from the Stoffi team, we hang our camera around - this is what a one-class training session looks like:

RUN - the scooter meeting

Run & Race - there is also a scooter run during the race. The Italian clubs have stands on the grounds of the racetrack and you can buy parts or merchandise, marvel at scooters and talk about petrol everywhere.
The evening events take place on a camping and bungalow park where all participants were accommodated. The announced concert on Saturday is unfortunately canceled, the Open Air Nighter boiled over until the police arrive. The event is spontaneously moved inside and, if the mood is even better, the party will continue until the early hours of the morning.
After an Italian breakfast on Sunday morning, saying goodbye is difficult! But this time the 250 km return journey lies ahead of us in the most beautiful sunshine. For the last part we leave the motorway and take a scenic route through the hinterland and mountains. We reach our base camp on Lake Garda in a good mood. We still had a lot to do here:

Scooterrun Italy Arco - Le BruttePieghe

Le BruttePieghe SC - 13 ° edition EuroZero

At the beginning of June 2016 we were on the 13 ° edizione EuroZero Scooterrun des Le BruttePieghe SC in Italy. The meeting took place in Arco, very close to Lake Garda. The Lago di Garda has a very important meaning for us:

At the lake Garda intends to about 25 years ago its general history of Scooter Centers began. In Malcesine in the middle of wonderful olive groves, on the east bank of Lake Garda, Oliver Kluger had the very first scooter (a Vespa Rally TS 125) for the Scooter Center bought and later sold to "Mod-Volker" from Cologne. Volker drives this wonderful Vespa still today, he is our very first customer and of course has remained loyal to us to this day.

Video from the meeting of Le BruttePieghe SC

The sun doesn't always shine in Italy either. And so it was very rainy that weekend (as everywhere). Luckily we had a rain break in the afternoon so that the Corso could take place. We can hardly imagine a more beautiful setting for a ride on the scooters. Goose flesh. On the subsequent Niter with Scooterists' sound it was really full and the party continued until the early hours of the morning.

If you have the opportunity, you should definitely visit a scooter meeting in Italy. There is an umbrella organization, the SIR, here you can find the current dates:

Parmakit Vespa scooter tuning

PARMAKIT Scooter Power Parts 100% Made in Italy

We were on tour in Italy for you again. Our destination this time: Parma in the Emiglia Romana. But, like during our visit to the Rimini Lambretta Center, we didn't see much of the area this time either. Sightseeing was not on our program - we had something much better in mind: our way led us into the industrial area directly to PARMAKIT.

Parmakit Vespa scooter tuning

Friendly business

After PARMAKIT on our Customshow in Cologne was represented with a booth, our return visit to Italy now followed. At the moment ours is still running PARMAKIT - competition

Because of "Dolce Vita", "Bella Italia" and "the sun always shines in Italy":
At the beginning of May we had snow on the Brenner and rain in Parma. But when we arrived at PARMAKIT, we quickly got warm to the scooter driver's heart. On the one hand we were warmly welcomed, on the other hand we were able to take a look behind the scenes of the cult forge. We were impressed with that Know-how, for Diversity and above all the Quality and Perfomance of the products.

PARMAKIT means the highest quality and 100% MADE IN ITALY

Just like we do at bgm, PARMAKIT uses companies and suppliers in the region to ensure consistently high quality.

Scooter racing in the blood

PARMAKIT comes from racing and the likeable Italians live that too. Last weekend they won the POLINI-CUP. In Europe they are currently mixing up the ESC - European Scooter Challenge. The next target is the BSSO - British Scooter Racing next weekend in East Fortune near Edinburgh, Scotland. The Italians also bring this experience to bear in their product development and the bar here is extremely high.

Parmakit at Scooter Center

In the future we will work even more closely with PARMALKIT, exchange experiences and expand our product range. Be curious!

Here we have summarized our impressions in a short video:

You can of course find out more about the development and new products here at Scooter Center Blog. Here you can get directly to the PARMAKIT products in Scooter Center Shop.
