Technology and the touring credentials synonymous with the GTS family meet history and prized sporting tradition of the Vespa. Following on from the success of the first version, an exclusive new numbered, but unlimited, Vespa Sei Giorni picks up the mantle and carries on the fascinating story of the 1951 Vespa Sport Sei Giorni.
VESPA SEI GIORNI II EDITIONThe legend continues
In 1951 the Piaggio racing team set the competitive world alight when it claimed victory, racing against conventional off-road motorcycles, in the prestigious and notoriously tough Sei Giorni Internazionale (6-Day International) at Varese, Italy. Taking its name from that win, the Vespa Sei Giorni of today is instantly recognisable by its oversize fuel tank, the streamlined shield and extra-large righthand side bag.
The Vespa Sei Giorni evokes the classic Vespa with its low headlamp, handlebar with exposed metallic tube and burnished windshield, but without compromising on up-to-the-minute technology.
Its sporty spirit comes to the fore in the form of the contrast between black elements and red detailing, the number 6 boldly stamped directly onto the frame and the single-look seat which is approved for carrying a passenger. Last but not least is the “Special Edition” plate which bears the individual serial number, testimony to the unique nature of this special model.
The Vespa Sei Giorni has inherited many traits from the Vespa GTS when it comes to style, comfort and safety, including a generous under-seat compartment and a comfy, natural riding position which ensures easy total control of the bike whether you are travelling short or long distances. Standard features include a USB port inside the rear shield locker, ABS for improved braking and front indicators containing LED daytime running lights.
