The 75th Anniversary Edition borrows several cues from the manufacturer’s past. The Giallo 75’s bright metallic yellow is a modern take on the yellow of 1940s bikes. The color compliments the “75” decals on the side panels, while the front fender has a 75 badge in matte pyrite metallic. There are plenty of chrome accessories throughout, too, including the headlight frame, rearview mirrors, grab bar and exhaust cap. The scooter also has custom-designed seats in nubuck leather in a dark gray hue. There is also a duffel bag made of the same nubuck leather.
The 75th Anniversary Edition also has a flight screen and 12-inch alloy wheels with a light gray paint job. The Welcome Collection depicts the brand’s historic journey through postcards and the vintage sign.
The Vespa 75th Anniversary Edition will continue to offer BS6 compliant engines, LED headlights with daytime running lights, ABS on the 150cc version and combined braking on the 125cc model.
