Life’s a picnic: New Vespa Primavera unveiled

1 of 3

Vespa have announced a new version of their Primavera scooter called the Pic Nic, which comes fitted with everything you need for – you guessed it – a picnic.  

Building on the standard Primavera scooter, which is a name that’s been with us since the 1960s, the new model features a wooden picnic basket to the rear, which is intertwined with rattan weave.

To help make your picnic that little more special, the basket also includes a removable cooler bag and waterproof blanket – perfect for those five days of sunshine we get in the UK every year.  

Available in two colours (grey or pastel green), the city scoot also features front and rear chrome-plated luggage racks, with a leather belt in place to stop your tea and cakes escaping from the rear wooden compartment. You also get a two-colour saddle, complete with small Italian flag detailing.
