After a fairly major update in năm ngoái, Vespa’s Primavera 150 scooter was brushed up yet again ahead of the 2018 Model year. This newest iteration brings a number of improvements khổng lồ the table to include larger hoops, all-around LED technology with some aesthetic improvements to boot. In addition khổng lồ the 150 cc base model, the factory also released a cargo-friendly Touring Mã Sản Phẩm and now there’s a Yacht Club variant for a nautical spin. It must be quite the undertaking to keep a Model family relevant as long in the tooth as the Primavera, but Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp doggedly stays the course & treats us to yet another handful of successors here half-a-century after the release of the original.

The strength of the structure on the Primavera 150 comes from a monocoque or stressed-skin assembly that uses welded reinforcements in the most critical areas. I prefer the under-frame system, me, but it is what it is.

An aircraft-style front suspension system uses a one-sided standing arm with a trailing links and coil-over shoông xã to articulate the front wheel. Not only does this system stand out from the crowd for its unusual looks, but it also allows for a steering column that is decidedly less bulky than the motorcycle-style system that runs with telescopic forks và must be accommodated by the front fairing. The result is a compact steering system that leaves the front end narrow, and the right side of the front wheel clean as a whistle.

Overall length measures out at 73-inches long with a 52.7-inch wheelbase và 30.7-inch high saddle, but it’s the narrow, 28.9-inch overall width that makes the Primavera look so nice and compact overall. A single, 200 mm disc & juice caliper brake slows the front kết thúc under the watchful eye of the ABS feature for a nice modern touch; too bad the rear kết thúc is still buried in the past with its 140 mm mechanical drum khổng lồ take care of business. Oh well, at least the drum does enhance the classic looks, if not the actual braking ability.

Vespa’s “i-Get” engine drives the Primavera 150 with Euro 4 emissions and a quiet demeanor. The latter comes courtesy of the great attention lớn detail by the engineers who endeavored to lớn keep as much mechanical noise as possible trapped within the cases. The air-cooled mill runs with a fan lớn force air through the system. While that’s a good compromise for dealing with heavy traffic without the weight & complexity of a water jacket và radiator, the jacket would dampen the mechanical sounds further yet.

A SOHC times the three-valve sầu head with a new electronic fuel injection system to manage the induction. Bore và stroke measure out nearly square at 58/58.6 milimet lớn give the one-lunger its 154.8 cc displacement. Power measures in at 12.9 ponies at 7,700 rpm with 9.4 pound-feet that comes on at 6,000 rpm.

The engine bolts up to the transmission in the typical swing-mount drive arrangement and it uses both as stressed members lớn replace the swingarm. The transmission is of the CVT type that uses a V-belt và variable-diameter pulleys lớn simulate the gear-ratio action you get from a standard transmixxer, just without the aggravation of manipulating a clutch & shifter, just twist & go. Top tốc độ is a claimed 61 mph, so it should be a capable commuter on all but the interstate.

The Havanaborrows heavily from Europe’s Boot with a similarly clean-and-slyên legguard area và enclosed handlebars to lead the way. SYM runs with an underbone frame that allows for a full step-through và flush deck that Vespa làm đẹp misses out on due to lớn its monocoque structure. A sculpted seat covers a dry-storage area with room for both pilot and pillion & a chrome grab bar to lớn help keep the latter securely mounted. While there is no “touring” model as with the Primavera, there is an accessory top case that can give the Havamãng cầu some extra cargo capathành phố.

Lance gets some baông chồng in the brakes, though. The Havamãng cầu sports hydraulic disc brakes front & rear, rather than dragging the drums out of the history books, and though it lacks ABS, it does sport a Combined Braking System that distributes braking effort between both calipers regardless of which brake lever you pull.

Suspension is more like what we’re used lớn on motorcycles with a telescopic front end to soak up the bumps. The Havana runs a 169 cc thumper that delivers 11.8 ponies và 9.21 pounds versus 12.9/9.4, và so Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp gains a slight edge here that holds all the way up lớn the checkout. Predictably, Lance’s price on the Havana Classic beats Vespa much like Floyd Mayweather beat Conor McGregor. The Havana Classic 200i rolls for only $2,699, so yeah, you could almost buy two of them for the price of the Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp.

He Said

“Much like Harley-Davidson, Piaggio does not use price as a selling point; it’s more lượt thích ’You want what we got? Better skin that checkbook then!’ I mean, you won’t be disappointed with the chất lượng, but if you’re looking for economic transportation, it will take quite a while khổng lồ amortize the price difference between the Primavera và, well, just about everything else in the world.”

She Said

My wife và fellow motorcycle writer, Allyn Hinton, says, “In 2018, Vespa released the Primavera “S” with a full-color TFT display in other markets, not ours. It was the first time in their history that one of their scooters had a fully-digital dashboard. I usually prefer the sweep gauges because my old-lady eyes can take in the display information at a glance, but the TFT displays are so clear, they’re very easy khổng lồ read.The Primavera 150 is a nice around town scooter with snappy acceleration & better ride and handling with the bigger wheels, but it would be nice if Vespa kept going with the modern công nghệ by adding a TFT display on the next update.”

T.J got an early start from his father và other family members who owned and rode motorcycles, and by helping with various mechanical repairs throughout childhood. That planted a seed that grew inkhổng lồ a well-rounded appreciation of all things mechanical, và eventually, inlớn a formal education of same. Though primarily a Harley rider, he has an appreciation for all sorts of bikes & doesn"t discriminate against any particular brand or region of origin. He currently holds an Associate"s degree in applied mechanical science from his time at the M.M.I.Read full bio
