Vespa Sprint Sport Limited Edition – GIIAS 2017 Live
Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I’m a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
Vespa has revealed a limited edition variant of the Sprint called Sprint Sport at the 2017 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (2017 GIIAS). The new variant is available in two colours – yellow and matte silver. Prices are to be announced.
The scooter is essentially the Sprint with accessories. The Sprint Sport gets a windscreen and a rear luggage rack. The rear view mirrors, wheels, and exhaust feature a black finish. The scooter continues with the 154.8cc I-Get (Italian Green Experience Technology) single cylinder engine that makes 11.82 PS of power at 7,500 rpm and 12 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. The ‘I-Get’ feature ensures optimal efficiency and emission without compromising on performance, claims Vespa. The engine is paired with a CVT unit.
The front-end uses a single sided trailing link suspension while the rear employs a preload-adjustable monoshock. The scooter uses a front 200 mm disc and a rear 140 mm drum brake for anchorage. A 110-section front and 120-section rear tubeless tyres wrap the alloy wheels.
The fuel tank capacity stands at 9 litres. The Vespa Sprint Sport features an electric saddle opening and a USB port to charge electronic devices as well.
