75th Edition – What’s Different?

While the Vespa 75th edition is based on the currently sold VXL, it gets some major cosmetic changes. However, mechanical changes are close to none. The 75th Edition retains the full steel monocoque body and gets an exclusive glossy metallic Giallo 75th- an original metallic yellow colourway. The number 75 on the side panels and the front bumper is displayed in matt metallic pyrite color which matches the front tie with chrome inserts, along with it the Chrome 75th Logo on the glove box. The scooter also gets an exclusive Nobuk leather seat in a dark grey theme. To reminisce the tail-mounted spare wheel, the 75th Edition gets a specially curated accessory bag made in the same materials as the seat. The bag can be mounted on the tail rack and be removed when not required. There is also a front windshield mounted on top of the headlamps. The wheels are machined alloys finished in grey colour.
