Vespa launches new Sprint, Primavera and GTS 300 Super simultaneously
Local Vespa distributor Naza Primavera has kept its momentum going with the launch of another three bikes within the past month, namely the Sprint, Primavera and GTS 300 Super Sport which have all been refreshed for 2018.
The Sprint and Primavera get a redesigned ‘tie’ (front fascia), new alloy wheels, as well as upgraded LED light clusters (front and back). Mechanically, they soldier on with the i-Get air-cooled SOHC 150cc singlecylinder engine. Primed with electronic fuel injection and three-valve setup, both the Sprint and Primavera pack output figures of 12.7hp and 12.8Nm.
Also unchanged is the CVT ‘twist-and-go’ automatic transmission paired with the mill. Both also benefit from single-channel ABS suite (front) plus a neat USB charging port, thus making them safe and convenient daily commuters.
Ahead of the pack is the updated GTS 300 Super which sports a racier colour scheme and graphics motif. Underneath, the GTS 300 Super Sport harnesses Vespa’s liquid-cooled 300cc single-cylinder mill that outputs nearly 21hp and 22Nm to its rear wheel via CVT ‘twist-and-go’ automatic box.
Added control comes from dual-disc brakes with dual-channel ABS, as well as the addition of Vespa’s Assisted Slip Reduction (ASR) suite. Added convenience, on the other hand, comes from the a USB charging port and electric seat saddle opening functions, the latter via a car-like key fob.
Like the Sprint and Primavera, the GTS 300 Super Sport is now assembled within the region (CKD) in Piaggio Group’s regional hub in Vietnam, resulting in a dramatic price reduction to just RM28,000 now. The smaller capacity Sprint and Primavera retail at RM16,400 and RM15,600 respectively.
