Vespa is famous for its retro-style scooters – but rather than harking back to the 1950s or 1960s the new Vespa S reflects the firm’s 1970s machines.

Both 50cc two-stroke and 125cc four-stroke versions are planned, featuring the same 70s-style, square-headlight looks. Just like the original Vespa 50 Special, the steel bodywork also provides the structure of the bike.
