Live the city life? You probably have your eye on a Vespa scooter, and the Italian brand has unveiled some eye-catching new models at the 2019 International Motorcycle Show.

The company is plugging into the electric mobility movement, presenting a new model Vespa Elettrica 70 km / h which, as the name suggests, pushes the performance of the existing electric Vespa to a new level.

According to Vespa, the Elettrica 70 km / h uses a lithium-ion battery and an electric motor, and has a range of up to 100 km. It’s in Eco mode, which limits the bike to 45km / h (the same level as the previous Elettrica). In Power mode, you can reach 70 km / h and the range is estimated at 70 km.

Other models on display include the Sean Wotherspoon – if you don’t recognize that name, google it – he’s a well-known designer. And the Vespa Primavera Sean Wotherspoon is clearly influenced by his work, with “a contemporary vintage touch in what is his hallmark.” You can even pick up a matching helmet, t-shirts or a “modern tracksuit”.

The special edition Vespa Primavera 125 (RED) is perhaps quieter, you guessed it, the Rosso paint. It has contrasting trim elements to help it stand out and even bears a red Vespa logo.

If retro is your favorite look, the Vespa Racing Sixties series will suit your bill. According to the brand, “the inspiration comes from the gentleman’s races of the 60s”, with contrasting graphics in yellow and green or red and white, it is available as a Vespa Sprint (50cc, 125cc and 150cc engines) or Vespa GTS Super ( 125cc or 300cc engines) spec.
