The 2015 EICMA International Motorcycle Exhibition show has kicked off in Milan this week and details have started to filter in from some of the vendors. Last year, Polini presented a flashy gold leaf smallframe and this year’s offering is no less stunning, albeit in a totally different way.
For their Vespa concept scooter, Polini has knocked a Vespa Primavera down to its skivvies and strapped on a bevy of performance and custom parts to create a one of a kind naked scooter. The most striking transformation comes on the front end, where Vespa’s stock suspension has been replaced with some beefy custom-machined forks and a suspension setup that makes space for a 14″ wheel. This to replace the stock 11″ front. The big wheels make room for big brake rotors (260mm front and 240mm rear) and custom pumps that add stopping power over the 200mm disc and rear drum that come stock on the Primavera.
The engine and drive train is completely upgraded and includes a big bore kit and elimination of the forced air cooling. This concept is so highly modified it’s hard to find a part of the original Vespa that hasn’t been upgraded, trimmed, cut off, moved, or customized. Check out the full list of modifications at Polini’s website.
