THE ORIGINS OF A LEGEND
The year was 1951 and the Piaggio Squadra Corse astonished the racing world, triumphing over real off-road motorbikes in one of the hardest and most prestigious competitions: the Sei Giorni Internazionale which was held in Varese.
The Vespa “Sei Giorni” which took its name from that victory, was very similar to the standard model aesthetically, differing primarily with its larger fuel tank, the more streamlined shield and the larger right side bag. That Sei Giorni model is one of the most legendary in the history of Vespa and it is now highly sought after by collectors
The saddle is comprised of materials typical found on sporty Italian vehicles, and the body, the metal soul of the Vespa, has undergone some significant changes. On the right hand side the horizontal grill nods to the most beautiful Vespas of the past and gives an elegant sporty touch to the vehicle's profile. And for increased safety, the front and rear disc brakes are now equipped with ABS and Piaggio's ASR system.
