Primavera S Special Edition 150
Sprint S 150

Following their appointment as the new custodians of the Vespa brand, Didi Resources Sdn Bhd launched two of the famed Italian brand’s 2020 offerings this week, those being the Primavera S Special Edition 150 and Sprint S 150 duo.

If you’re keen on scooting in style once the ongoing Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) lifts, here’s what you ought to know about both as they become available at both the brand’s new flagship centre and authorised dealers.

Both share the same powertrain package, that being the Piaggio group’s current generation air-cooled 155cc i-Get single-cylinder mill paired with a twist-and-go CVT automatic driveline. Lightly updated, it now churns out 13hp and 12.8Nm.

A host of stylish new metallic and matte paint schemes, as well as light visual changes mask some critical tweaks underneath like the Sprint S’s upsized 8-litre tank capacity for instance. Notable on board features now include full LED lighting, stylish 12-inch alloy wheels, front ABS, and the presence of a USB charging port.

Aptly, both are set apart by their own aesthetic styles. Those seeking a sportier yet modern contemporary look will indeed be drawn into the square-lamped Sprint S. The Primavera S, on the other hand, will be the choice for those yearning for that signature Vespa classic look.

Naturally, this much chic styling doesn’t come cheap, more so when paired with modern ancillaries as what we’ve detailed. Perhaps this also somewhat justifies the Sprint S 150’s RM16,900 and the Primavera S Special Edition 150’s RM18,300 base price tags (excluding on-road costs).

Yes, at these prices, the recently redressed and arguably equally specced 2020 Yamaha NVX 155 ABS seems to make more sense...

Fortunately, Didi Resources have devised a tempting offer on hand. Bookings for either models can be online through the Vespa Malaysia e-Store on Lazada for as low as RM60. Do that before the end of June and you’ll be rewarded with a free official Vespa tee shirt plus an accessories package worth RM700.

No matter which of the two you choose, you’ll definitely ooze lots of style and street cred effortlessly riding one of these over any of similarly-sized rival.
