Technology as well as growing demand makes every brand race to win customers if they don’t want to sleep on top of glory and lag behind.
Flip back to history, Vespa uses a 4-stroke engine called Modern Vespa. This is an alternative to the old Vespa that used a two-stroke engine before. Modern Vespa’s era was opened when Vespa was born ET in 1996, then replaced by the LX; and by 2013, LX ceded his position to Primavera.
Like many other brands, Vespa cannot stand outside customers’ needs. Although always associated with fashion images from the last century, the Vespa has always had improvements aimed at serving the majority of consumers. It is no coincidence that a 4-stroke engine is replaced by a 2-stroke engine; not random motor L.E.A.D.E.R engine is lost i.e; and if the i.e engine is really perfect, Vespa is probably not necessary to have a 3V generation i.e. That is the evolution of technology. Vespa harmonizes between what they have – fashion – and what consumers need – savings and persistence to create 3V i.e.
Shortly thereafter, Vespa has a new generation of strategic products called Primavera and Sprint.
Launched in 2013, the Primavera is a car that inherits the shape of 946 and focuses on serving daily needs. The car lessened the momentum of 946, supplemented with the trunk, the system of saddle springs, the foot position for the comfortable rear seats as well as the quiet height suitable for the Asian physique.
To talk about comfort and innovation, Primavera offers its customers a more versatile vehicle and more utility than the LX. The modernity of Primavera comes from LED daytime positioning lights, an integrated LCD display system that displays a lot of information at the same time, making the footing more convenient. If you go into the technology, the new car still has a lot of remarkable points that not every advertisement mentioned.
Between the chassis and engine mounts on Primavera there is additional equipment to suppress the vibration of the 3V engine to the floor. In addition, Primavera cannot fit the gas and press the start button to completely eliminate the loss of control due to electronic system interference. Meanwhile, LX i.e does not have this equipment, safety facilities only stop at the foot of electric shock.
Most important on this car is the improved 3V i.e engine system. 3V i.e is a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, forced-air motor with three valves (2 suction valves and 1 exhaust valve). The upper single camshaft is integrated with electronic fuel injectors. The new crankshaft and camshaft supported by bearings and roller-shaped sliders help minimize friction, thereby increasing the engine’s performance.
This is what meets the needs of customers that require a cost-effective and durable car, easy to maintain and repair, and have a longer life span than the old generation.
Vespa also changed many other details in the machinery system. If the starter on the motor i.e is noisy, the 3V i.e motor has been replaced by a quieter one-way clutch.
The amount of fuel consumed by Primavera in the manufacturer’s announcement is 1.56L / 100km but in the street the consumption is up to 2.5L / 100km.
Obviously, there have been so many changes since the first generation Modern Vespa to Primavera today. Today’s Vespa is no longer merely a jewel when people come to the street but a more reliable, enduring, modern and popular daily companion.
