Vespa is launching two new special edition variants for its Sprint 150 and GTS Super models, dubbed Racing Sixties, adding heritage-inspired paint and exclusive touches.
The Vespa Sprint 150 Racing Sixties is priced from $7690 plus on-road costs, while the GTS Super Racing Sixties checks in from $11,190.
Distinguishing the Racing Sixties special editions is new green/yellow and red/white colour schemes, which are said to hark back to “legendary circuits such as the Monaco or Monza Grand Prix tracks”.
The Racing Sixties also gains a new seat, golden wheels, matte black details and unique badging.
A number of accompanying Racing Sixties accessories are also on offer, including colour-matching helmets.
“The helmets offer the comfort of an adjustable ventilation system and feature an external fibreglass shell with anti UV ray paint and a scratch-proof visor,” Vespa said in a press release.
“Style wise, just like the Racing Sixties Vespa special editions, they boast a sporty yet classic aesthetic, achieved by pairing clean graphic lines with simple colours such as yellow on green, or red on white.”
