Vespa GTV 300 Sei Giorni Limited Edition
RIDE WITH THE LEGENDS ON THE NEW VESPA SEI GIORNI EDITION
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. In the post-war period, regularity competitions were in their heyday: these were taxing trials on extremely hard routes, hundreds of kilometres long. An extraordinary test bench for man and machine. Vespa, with the model created specifically for that race and based on the Sport version, dominated to take no less than 9 individual gold medals. The Vespa “Sei Giorni” which took its name from that victory, was very similar to the standard model aesthetically, differing primarily for its larger fuel tank, more streamlined shield and larger right-side pannier housing the carburettor on the cylinder. It is one of the most valuable Vespas in the world since it was produced as a limited edition of roughly 300 units, clearly destined for regularity competitions.
In 2018 Vespa Sei Giorni I edition is produced and is redesigned in terms of its style and technical content, also standing out for its new distinctive colour. Characterised by the large body made strictly in steel, perfect for moving about elegantly in the city but always ready for travel and adventure, the updated Vespa Sei Giorni adopts the most powerful engine in the history of the world’s most famous and beloved scooter – the new 300 cc engine. The style of the Vespa Sei Giorni is clearly reminiscent of the classic Vespa style but with an ultra-modern technological package. Characteristic elements are the “low headlight”, the dedicated graphics and the handlebar that, on the original Vespa Sei Giorni, stood out for the simplicity of the exposed metal tubing in line with Vespas of that period. The sporty spirit of the Vespa Sei Giorni is also highlighted by the single-seat look saddle with two-layer upholstery.
