bgm PRO Sport seat Vespa sport seat

bgm PRO “Sport” sports seat made by Nisa Italy

Based on the very popular Nisa 'Sport 20' seat, we have designed a sports seat for the classic Vespas in the bgm design and had the seat manufactured by the Italian seat manufacturer NISA as a bgm version. The new bgm PRO sports seat is available for Vespa Largeframe and Vespa Smallframe and is available in two versions:

Sport seat with authentic look

The BGM Pro Sport seat has a beautiful Alfatex cover (embossed waffle pattern) on the sides and rear and is also available with gray piping. The seat surface also has a smooth cover with parallel longitudinal seams. For a waterproof surface, these are embossed, not sewn. The appearance of the BGM Pro Sport is thus strongly reminiscent of the classic seat humps of the 70's and conveys a cool race flair even when standing.

Vespa seat configurator

You can also find the seat in the Scooter Center Seat configurator, have a look at the seat on your Vespa model:

Sports seat suitable for everyday use

In practical use, it is very easy to ride, despite its sporty everyday look. The bench has a pleasantly sized foam padding on which even long tours are fun. A nice feature is the completely padded hump. This provides good support when riding solo, but can also be used as a pillion seat if necessary.

Modern magnetic closure

Another intelligent feature is the magnetic closure of the bench by means of an extremely powerful neodymium magnet. This means that the bench can be opened easily with one hand, but still holds better than many a classic hook fastener. The biggest advantage of the magnetic technology is that the bench rests rattle-free on the supplied fixing plate, which is firmly screwed to the frame. The magnetic force is so high that uninformed people who try to open the seat assume that it is locked.

Top quality - handmade in Italy

The bench frame is made of impact-resistant and durable ABS plastic. The cover is stapled all around and thus very securely and permanently fastened (as opposed to just gluing it on as is usually the case). The frame is equipped with six rubber pads. This distributes the load very well over the entire frame and the bench gives a very solid and full seat feeling. The bench hinge is typically Nisa very solid and sturdy and therefore very resilient. It is also screwed in place and can be replaced (in the highly unlikely event of a defect). Available for Wasp Smallframe and Largeframe (Largeframe models with high tank (GS160, SS180, Rally180 / 200 need the flat tank of the Sprint / PX models without oil tank)

CONCLUSION: Beautiful flat seat with great racing look but touring qualities!

Note for the Largeframe version and Vespa PX For PX models only suitable for tank versions with hinged lid. Not suitable for Lusso models / vehicles with oil tank. Order seat:

Convert your old Vespa PX with battery now easily

A modern electrical system without battery on your scooter does not destroy the appearance, it is on invisible and economical increase in safety and comfortbecause

  • Without a battery, there is no need to purchase / replace and maintain the battery
  • Your electrical system and all consumers function independently of the battery's condition or charge level
  • You efficiently prevent corrosion damage to your Vespa PX caused by an overcooked battery / battery acid
  • Significantly more safety due to increased light output = increased visibility = better being seen & and better seeing

Conversion wiring harness for all Vespa PX models until 1982

This wiring harness is perfect to convert your Vespa PX, which has a battery from the Piaggio factory, to a modern and maintenance free on-board electrical system no battery. For this purpose, we offer an inexpensive and practical set with all the necessary new switches and ignition lock(BGM6685KT). Wiring harness in set with switches

Additionally, for a replacement / restoration, this is the PX wiring harness in the Italian version for models without battery. On this model, the turn signals, the horn (so-called “snare”) and all other consumers are supplied with power directly via the on-board AC system. The ignition base plate used on these vehicles has only 3 cables (contact ignition models) or 5 cables (vehicles with electronic ignition). Wiring harness single without switch

Vehicle models:

Vespa PX battery-free: Conversion without battery

For the conversion of your scooter to the modern electrical system, you need the following parts and save the battery, the wintering and the care / maintenance of the vehicle battery in the future

  • VOLTAGE REGULATOR In general, the simple 3-pole voltage regulator (G | G | M) is used with this wiring harness (eg 9100001). The 5-pole voltage regulator (A | A | B + | G | M) originally used on vehicles delivered from the factory with battery can still be used. Only the connections B + and G remain unassigned (formerly charging current for the battery). A better alternative is the compact and powerful BGM Pro voltage regulator(BGM6690). This can, for example, also supply a USB socket with 12V DC voltage for charging the mobile phone / navi, etc.
  • IGNITION / IGNITION BASE PLATE / LIMA The type with 5 cables is used as ignition base plate (also recognizable by the blue and black cable for the single voltage supply). The original 7-cable Lima of the models with battery can no longer be used. However, due to their age, these often show damage to the cable insulation anyway. Conversion to the more powerful ignition base plate of the later Lusso models (eg BGM8025N or BGM8032N) is therefore highly recommended. This increases the total light output of the AC network considerably, as no more current is diverted for battery charging. Thus, even old PX models can be equipped with a 35 / 35W lamp. Most alternators with 5 cables have a round plug. The wiring harness offered here has (as in the original Italian) 6.3mm flat plugs. Here, either the wiring harness can be converted to a round plug or the ignition base plate can be converted to a flat plug. The necessary parts can be found in the accessories.
  • BLINKING RELAY The models with battery use a DC (direct current) flasher relay. After conversion, an AC (alternating current) flasher relay is required (eg 1195703).
  • INSTRUCTIONS / WIRING DIAGRAM The following instructions / wiring diagramwill help you to connect the cables .

Checklist: Spare parts / parts that are connected to the wiring harness

To make sure everything works, you should go through this list and check if your old parts are still OK. If not, you can order them directly from our Vespa Shop via the link:

* 9512115? 9520072 + 9520074 / ** 9512027? 7675200 + 7675201

CONCLUSION: Absolutely sensitive conversion to modern, more powerful and maintenance-free electrics

Motovespa air filter element bgm PRO

Air filter insert bgm for Motovespa air filter

The identical air filter inserts are fitted to many Motovespa Largeframe models. Often this important component for the protection of the engine is missing or is no longer in a usable condition. For this reason, we have produced a high quality air filter insert for the Spanish licensed versions of the Vespa Largeframe models.

Air filter fleece bgm PRO for Motovespa Largeframe

High quality filter fleece from Marchald (Italy), manufactured for bgm PRO. Suitable for the direct-intake engines (carburettor sits directly on the cylinder) of the Largeframe Motovespa engines.

  • 1: 1 replacement for the original wire mesh.
  • Significantly better and finer filtration with higher air flow at the same time.
  • Therefore also ideal for already performance-enhanced engines.
  • washable

Installation instructions for the Motovespa air filter element

Replacing the air filter element is very easy. After removing the right side cover, the air filter box is immediately visible.

Motovespa air filter box Vespa

Open and remove the air filter box

The cover is fixed with two M5 screws. These can be loosened with a size 5 to 6 flathead screwdriver.

The air filter of the Motovespa

After removing the two screws, the cover can simply be lifted off. Here, in our example, the original air filter insert of the Motovespa is no longer present!

Attaching the air filter element

The air filter insert has no installation orientation and can simply be pushed onto the filter housing from above.

Closing the air filter box

The remaining protrusion of the air filter insert seals towards the air filter box cover when mounted. Refit the cover of the air filter box with the two screws, refit the side cover and the change is complete.

Air filter cleaner and oil

To achieve an even higher filter performance, the air filter insert can be used with air filter oil. However, this is not absolutely necessary due to that high-quality filter material of the bgm PRO filter.

New carburettor connection rubbers from bgm PRO

In countless long and short distance races and test kilometers the 12mm wide hose clamps from ABA SAFE have proven their worth. The ABA Safe ™ clamp uses the elasticity of the intake rubber and protects this relatively soft rubber hose from damage. The clamping force is increased at the profile beads, there are no sharp edges and the 12mm wide clamps fit tightly without stressing the carburettor connection rubber.

bgm carburetor connection rubbers for 12mm ABA Save clamps carburetor rubbers Vespa & co.

We have now developed new bgm connection rubbers that are wide enough to neatly accommodate these 12mm wide hose clamps.

Carburettor connection rubbers bgm PRO

Carburettor connection rubbers bgm PRO

Another advantage is that ours bgm connecting rubbers from the carburetor to the intake manifold are made of a very oil and petrol tolerant material. This makes the carburettor connection rubbers a highly reliable and durable part on your scooter.

  1. The carburetor and intake manifold should be thoroughly degreased before fitting.
  2. The 12mm ABA SAFE hose clamps should also not be overtightened.

Excitement is unstoppable when the final result is just small step away. Especially, if it is a bureaucratic step… Even I have a Colombian driver's license for more than 10 years; Germany requires a theoretical and practical test. So as soon we started the project, I began to study all the 800 questions for the theoretical test. After I mastered that, it was about time for the practical test. This happened at the same time when Platónika was ready for the TÜV (German type approval) to sort out the paperwork. Both (she and I) are very happy with the paperwork.

On her side, she registered the replacement of her old, rusty PX frame (pictures) along with her performance upgrades, but the license plate was still missing and one day before my test, she looked like this:

So my hopes of driving her right away were gone.

However, Alex and the work team surprised me, fixing the last details and doing the paperwork on their own, picking me up once I passed the test.

Building Platónika took almost a year, record every single step, the pandemic, among others, delayed the project, but the long-awaited day arrived.

6 Ready to roll Vespa bgm Platónika project by Scooter Center

The truth is that this story does not end here the next thing will be to know the European scene in her company, testing all the top components that she got. All kind of tests and adventures will be recorded and told.

Let us hope that these strange times of social distancing will end soon and we regain lost hugs, the shared routes and the contact with the asphalt, which is what fuels this passion.

See you on the road!

Hose 3.00 10

Vespa & Lambretta Smallframe inner tube 3.00 x 10 bgm PRO

We have chosen a very high buty content for the new bgm PRO inner tubes in favor of better quality and higher safety and therefore a separate tube size for tires up to 3.00-10 and 90 / 90-10 = Vespa & Lambretta Smallframe. Other inner tubes with a lower butyl content have more flexibility due to a higher rubber content. They serve a wider range of possible tire sizes (up to 130 / 90-10), but as a major disadvantage, poorer air tightness and puncture resistance must be accepted.

Our bgm PRO hoses are manufactured to our specifications especially for the needs of Vespa and Lambretta scooters. The butyl content is over 55%, which makes them extremely airtight and absolutely reliable. The high butyl content makes the hose more expensive to produce, but the result justifies the expense! Nevertheless, we offer this high-quality hose at a great price:

Fitting instructions Fitting inner tube & tire

TIP: Our bgm PRO scooter inner tubes can be used in many vehicles with 10-inch tubular tires. When mounting, insert the tires at the bead with mounting paste and dust the inside of the tire with talcum powder. The mounting paste ensures the correct end position of the tire while the talc minimizes the friction of the inner tube. This maximizes the safety and life of the inner tube.

Vespa oil seals bgm PRO

bgm PRO shaft seals made of high-quality and ethanol-resistant (E10) FKM / Viton® *

New: Now also for Wasp Wideframe, GS3, Faro Basso etc .: We have expanded our shaft seal portfolio with modern Simmerrings from bgm and can now offer shaft seal rings made of FKM / Viton® for almost every classic Vespa:


The bgm PRO oil seals have the perfect dimensions that guarantee easy installation, optimum function and a long service life. The large shaft seal on the clutch side, eg on old Vespas, has an overall height of 7 mm on the bgm PRO, instead of the 6.5 mm usually used by other manufacturers. This means that the bgm PRO oil seal is based on the original Piaggio factory specifications. If you have ever taken apart from an old and original Vespa engine, you may have noticed that a large oilseal with a height of 7mm was installed at the factory.


On old engines, the bearing of the crankshaft is 'floating'. This means that the bearing is not fixed and it can be moved axially (horizontally sideways) in the engine housing. This displacement occurs, for example, under load due to the axial force exerted by the helical-toothed primary drive. If the crankshaft shifts too much, this can of course affect the ignition and also the function of the clutch. The aim should therefore be to have as little unnecessary play as possible. The stop and thus the play of this floating bearing in the Vespa engines is determined only by the oil seals. The tolerances in the old engines are large and, for example, we also use thicker housing seals today, so it makes sense to use 7mm oil seals!


The material is FKM (fluorocarbon rubber). extremely resistant to

  • Heat
  • friction and
  • Fuel
  • ethanol

Even super petrol fuel E5 in Germany currently already has up to 5% ethanol admixture, with E10 it is even up to 10%, and the trend is rising. And did you know that this can vary from country to country? Have you ever noticed in France, for example, that your engine runs differently? In other countries, the ethanol / alcohol content can be significantly higher. A conventional oil seal cannot tolerate this increasing ethanol content and can swell or soften when it comes into contact with ethanol-containing fuels. The bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals, on the other hand, offer lasting protection. In addition, our simmering with Viton® is twice as temperature resistant as conventional (blue) NBR shaft seals. Further advantages of these modern shaft seals:

  • extremely impermeable to gas
  • and very resistant to aging


OK, so our radial shaft seals from bgm have

  1. optimal dimensions and
  2. most modern materials

but what are they suitable for now? An engine equipped with bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals can also be used without problems in engines that run on E10 fuel (10% alcohol content). The modern and high quality brown Viton® * sealing material is

  • permanently resistant to ethanol / alcohol and
  • also suitable for engines with high temperature
  • and high speed.

bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals are therefore suitable for all engines! Just play it safe and install the modern Simmerrings right away. Whether for an original engine, mild tuning or extreme tuning and motorsport! For reasons of environmental protection and in favor of maximum flexibility of the sealing lip, we deliberately refrain from additionally coating the sealing lip with PTFE / Teflon® *


The bgm PRO Shaft seals offer double sealing as an additional feature: All shaft seals that seal to the outside, to the atmosphere, have a so-called dust lip. This is positioned in front of the actual sealing lip and holds the seal in place

  • Dust
  • dirt and
  • Moisture.

This further increases the very good stability.


The bgm PRO oil seal set improves the installation clearance and offers an extremely long service life due to the excellent modern materials FKM / Viton®, combined with perfect fuel compatibility: it is even E10 resistant! The oil seals replace the old ones and of course fit without modifications. Tip: We offer the Simmerrings individually as well as in sets and in sets with bearings!

  • recommended for each engine Original or
  • tuned high-performance engine
  • twice as temperature resistant
  • suitable for extremely high speeds
  • permanently alcohol resistant - perfect for scooter meetings ;-)
  • very good gas impermeability
  • high thermal stress
  • very resistant to aging
bgm PRO shaft sealing rings Viton® - Simmerrings Vespa and Lambretta


The material FKM (fluorocarbon rubber) is extremely resistant to heat, friction and fuel / ethanol. Current super fuel in Germany already contains up to 5% ethanol per se.

In other countries the ethanol / alcohol content is significantly higher. Conventional radial shaft seals can swell or soften when in contact with fuels containing ethanol.
The bgm PRO FKM / Viton® shaft seals offer perfect protection against this. In addition, Viton is twice as temperature resistant as conventional (blue) NBR shaft sealing rings , has very good gas impermeability and is also very resistant to aging.


An engine equipped with bgm PRO FKM / Viton® rotary shaft seals can therefore also be operated with E10 fuel (10% alcohol content). The high-quality brown Viton® * sealing material is Permanently resistant to alcohol and is also suitable for engines with high temperature loads and high speeds.
bgm PRO FKM / Viton® radial shaft seals are therefore suitable for all engines, whether original or tuned high-performance engines

For reasons of environmental protection and in favor of maximum flexibility of the sealing lip, we deliberately avoid additional PTFE / Teflon® * loading of the sealing lip


The BGM PRO rotary shaft seals offer a double sealing as an additional feature. All rotary shaft seals that seal against the atmosphere have a so-called dust lip. This is positioned before the actual sealing lip and keeps dust, dirt and moisture away. This further increases the already good stability. INDIVIDUAL & AVAILABLE IN A SET The BGM PRO FKM / Viton® oil seals are available individually and in sets for almost all Vespa and Lambretta engines.

bgm PRO SC Competition Shock Absorber

The bgm PRO SC Competition shock absorber is a further development of the successful BGM PRO F16 Sport series. Visually the Competition series differs from the external expansion tank. This allows an even better response behavior due to a larger volume compared to the sport shock absorber. At the same time the effective adjustment range of the damping has been increased.


The competition shock absorber has a different basic tuning compared to the sport shock absorber. Therefore it is very well suited for use with stiff sport springs like the new bgm PRO spring.

The rebound and compression settings also counteract the typical brake pitching, but also effectively counteract the rapid rebound in short bumps. This means that the competition damper offers a lot of reserves even in high-performance vehicles. The wide range of suspension settings naturally also allows the use of a standard spring, which means that a comfortable ride is still possible with a soft damper adjustment.



Due to the optimized installation dimension of 165mm the damper fits without problems on all 8 inch models without pretensioning the spring or changing the angle of the swingarm. When mounted, the external expansion tank is largely covered by the fender, thus preserving the original look of the vehicle front. As with the F16 Sport series, the damper body is made of hard anodized aluminum. The damper is available in black and silver.


We also offer the bgm Competition shock absorber as a set with the bgm suspension spring which perfectly matches the reinforced shock absorber!

Like Mary Shelley's famous story (Frankenstein), maryZabel would also combine parts of differents origins to bring a legend to life.

Platonica Platónika is made of a chassis from the last production run of the LML factory. The factory that sadly went bankrupt in 2018 and of which we bought the last production run of frames.

(look here our visit “before the final end”)

Back to the plot one of these sets is used to replace the old and rusty Vespa chassis, from which it adopts its soul by rewriting the frame number.

The intrinsic values ​​are determined mainly by the bgm PRO range of parts. Like the latest version of the bgm PRO stator plate, that includes as one of the nice details, the degree reading on the base plate to make timing adjustment much easier. The silicone wiring guarantees greater protection, duration and extreme resistance to temperature.

Let there be light!

And the light was made, embracing the modernity, with the high-power LED headlightof Moto Nostra. Which luminosity is three times higher (1300 lumens, instead of 400 of the usual bulb) with a much lower consumption (20W instead of the usual 35W).

Scootering: bgm CLASSIC tires


So the Scootering magazines has our new bgm tires did not escape. So the current issue contains a nice report on our Classic tires, here they are compared with the legendary MICHELIN ACS, justified.

bgm Classic tires Michelin ACS



bgm has launched a new tire which is a throwback to the old days of scootering but using modern technology. Simply labeled the Classic, the tread pattern is similar to that of the Michelin ACS. For those that can't remember, the ACS was one of the best tread patterns ever designed for the scooter, not only giving good road-handling properties in the dry but also in wet conditions. For years it was standard issue equipment for both the Vespa and Lambretta. Even today, original examples of the ACS can fetch huge sums as owners want that retro look. Michelin destroyed the molds back in the late 1980s and so it was consigned to the history books. Thankfully BGM has brought it back to life with the company's new design. The Classic is speed-rated up to 150kmh / 93mph, which is very impressive. This is down to a strengthened carcass which not only improves stability at high speed but also when cornering.
