The special versions of the Vespa Primavera 125 and GTS Super Tech 125 and 300 models will each carry a 75th suffix and come in a 1940s-esque metallic yellow paintjob.
You also get a chrome-plated luggage rack and bag designed to imitate the look of a spare wheel. A commemorative badge and 75 decal in darker yellow on the side panel and front mudguard complete the look.
Underneath the new bling, the models are the top spec versions of their respective ranges. So, you get the 125cc engine version of the Primavera and the smartphone compatible GTS Super with TFT dash and navigation built in.
Owners will also receive a silk scarf and a set of eight commemorative postcards detailing the eight decades of the Vespa’s history so far.
Since the first patent registration in 1946, Piaggio say almost 19 million Vespas have been sold around the world including 1.8 million in the last decade alone, which is worth celebrating.
The 75th editions will be available from March 2021 until the end of the year. The Primavera costs £4900 and the GTS Super Tech costs £6100 for the 125 and £6650 for the 300.
