The Vespa Pic Nic even comes with a baskets, blankets, and even a fedora hat.
It might not be entirely safe to venture outside right now. But for when the health crisis has been controlled, taking a joy ride into the great outdoors might do you a bit of good. For that future adventure, Vespa is recommending their limited edition Pic Nic.
Sharing is caring
Fun fact: the English “picnic” comes from the French term “pique-nique,” which describes a social gathering where each attendee brings a share of food. Pic Nic, on the other hand, is part of Vespa’s Primavera line, which was first introduced to the world at the 1967 Milan motorcycle show. It has since become one of the brand’s most commercially successful models.
It comes in three colors: White Innocenza, Green Relax, and Grey Materia. Both its front and rear rack have a one brown strap that serves to tighten the items to be carried on your journey.
The scooter’ssaddle is specific to the Pic Nic, and small Italian flag is placed on the saddle strap as a reference to its origins. It is equipped with 12-inch wheel rims, made of aluminum alloy and with a five-spoke design, conceived in white by Piaggio Group’s Italian design center.
This limited edition comes with its appropriate accessories: A picnic blanket with an embossed Vespa Pic Nic logo; a rattan basket with fixing kit, which allows basket to located firmly on the rear rack; a white cooling bag is inside the basket where food and drinks can be stored once the journey outdoor begins; special Vespa tumblers; a branded fedora hat, a tote bag, and white T-shirt with heritage graphic.
The vehicle is driven by a modern one-cylinder four-stroke 125 and 150 cc iGet engines, air-cooled and equipped with electronic injection and 3-valve distribution. The control unit contains a barometric sensor, which ensures always optimum combustion under all conditions and at all altitudes.
The engine power and torque delivered thus reach new levels of steadiness and reliability, also in city traffic, characterized by continuous “stop and go.”
When Primavera was launched, Europe, particularly Italy, was going through an economic boom. More and more people felt that they are allowed to be more carefree and were wont to escape from the city for a quick getaway.
Decades after that, and many countries, including ours, are kept from taking a respite because of the virus. Here’s hoping that that changes sooner than later, so we can all finally ride off and enjoy a meal and each other’s company.
