Vespa launches new Sprint, Pri­mav­era and GTS 300 Su­per si­mul­ta­ne­ously

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Pace Notes -

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.
