2011 Vespa S50 4V

The styling of the 2011 Vespa S50 4V traces its origins back to legendary models like the 50 Special and the Vespa Primavera. With its clean, essential lines, the Vespa S is a minimalist version of the legendary seventies models. The rectangular headlight and the front shield’s uncluttered surface and minimal thickness are powerful design features. The 4 valve engine has more power and improved fuel efficiency.
