NEW SIDE­CARS

Scootering - - Kickstart -

Bri­tish com­pany Wat­so­nian has launched a new scooter side­car de­signed to fit the Vespa GTS, the Zan­zara (Ital­ian for mos­quito), a version of their light­weight Me­teor side­car. The name Zan­zara is a ref­er­ence to the side­car body, which Wat­so­nian told us, “was orig­i­nally based on the shape of re­serve fuel tanks from the fa­mous RAF Mos­quito air­craft”. Wat­so­nian has de­vel­oped a spe­cial chas­sis and sub-frame to at­tach the side­car to the Vespa and fit­ted it with a 12in Vespa front wheel. The mud­guard is the Clas­sic shape, which first ap­peared in 1955, and the fold-down aero screen com­pletes the pe­riod ap­pear­ance. The seat tilts for­ward to pro­vide ac­cess to stor­age space be­hind. It weighs about 65kg and the glass fi­bre body shells is avail­able in a wide range of gel-coat colours.
