Distributor of renowned Italian brand Vespa in Malaysia, Naza Premira, has introduced three limited edition scooters – the 2018 Vespa 946 (RED), Vespa Sprint Carbon and Vespa Sei Giorni. Pricing for the lifestyle scooters are RM66,000 for the 946 RED, RM17,400 for the Sprint Carbon and RM38,000 for the Sei Giorni.

Created as a project for (RED), the global fund to fight HIV/AIDS, the 946 (RED) carries a 125 cc, three-valve, single-cylinder engine that drives a CVT gearbox. Every sale of a 946 (RED) triggers a donation of 150 USD (RM620) to (RED) which buys 500 days of medication for a HIV/AIDS victim.

Dressed in a shade of red unique to this model, the 946 (RED), like its sibling the 2016 Vespa 946 Emporio Armani, comes with steel bodywork, complemented aluminium components such as the mudguard and side covers. LED lighting is used throughout and a full LCD instrument panel can be found inside the cockpit.

Targeted at the youth market is the Sprint Carbon, powered by Vespa’s i-Get 150 cc air-cooled single-cylinder mill that produces 13.9 hp at 6,000 rpm. Coming in matte black paint with red accents, the Sprint Carbon comes with a rectangular headlight and rolls on the 12-inch aluminium alloy wheels.

Commemorating the Sei Giorni or Six Days race held in 1951 in Varese, Italy, the Sei Giorni carries a 300 cc engine that produces a claimed 21 hp at 7,750 rpm and 22 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. Painted in Verde Matt (Matte Green), the Sei Giorni is styled like the Vespa racing scooters of the the 50s, with the headlamp mounted on the front mudguard and and a small flyscreen mounted on the handlebars.

The seat on the Sei Giorni is styled to resemble the single seat of a racing scooter and vent cutouts in the front fairing as well as the exposed round-tube handlebar reflect this scooter’s racing heritage. All three Vespa scooters come with ABS on the front and rear hydraulic disc brakes and are available for viewing at selected authorised Vespa dealerships and outlets in Malaysia.
