Last February 21, 2019, the Moto Italia Philippines launched its new model of Vespa scooter, the 2019 Vespa Sprint 150 Notte and the Vespa GTS 300 Super Notte with the new sexy color scheme. This event is held in XYLO at The Palace in Bonifacio Global City that led by Mr. Willy Tee Ten the President of Moto Italia Philippines.
This limited edition is named Notte, which in Italian word is night perfect to its all-black style color. Both Vespa series is covered with a combination of vibrant matte-black that act as a canvas and a gloss-black color that gives detail to the headlights (square shape for the Sprint 150 and round for GTS 300), controls and switch, grabs rails, mirrors and rims.
They create a classical look interface using a combination of analog and digital instrument, and plush seats covered with black leather that provides soften effect for the riders.
The Sprint 150 Notte is the smallest of the two limited edition models that are equipped with a Piaggio’s environment-friendly 150 cc three-valve, an ‘i-get’ engine that can produce 12.7hp at 7,750rpm and 12.8Nm at 6,500rpm, and a single cylinder engine with an electronic fuel-injection system. This feature gives quick acceleration, cleaner emissions, fuel efficiency, and smooth ride.
To boost the character of Sprint Notte as the reliable city commuter they enhance the transmission, modern LED headlight with DRL provide better midday and night visibility, and ABS-equipped brakes to a secure braking condition.
Meanwhile, the Vespa GTS 300 Super Notte has a 273 cc engine that is flexible not just for city riding also touring. The four-stroke motor has a single cylinder with a liquid cooler, electronic fuel, and four valves. The GTS peak torque is 22Nm at 5,000rpm and maximum power is 21hp at 7,750rpm. And the two-channel ABS and ASR traction control is an addition to improve scooters handling. This helps and work to make sure that the tires will maintain its maximum grip in any road conditions.
