Vespa virtually unveiled the latest striking liveries for the GTS Super and Sprint, Racing Sixties. The special series pays tribute to the golden age of racing, a legendary period in the history of racing and motoring. The green and yellow combo is called Green Bosco, while the red and white is called White Innocenza.
As the name suggests, the series is inspired by the gentlemen racers of the 60s and the unmistakable and effortless style of their racing machines. During that decade, riders were fuelled by their spirit of independence and autonomy, determinedly choosing their team, the races in which to compete, and even the aesthetics of their vehicle, particularly in terms of colors, graphics and materials.
The colors and graphics used at the time reflected a sense of belonging to one's country of origin. Their designs and color schemes were selected to ensure one's private team had a distinctive and easily recognizable look.
As such, the livery choices offered by the Vespa Racing Sixties series call back to the feats of legendary sports personalities, winning teams and the legendary circuits that these victories were achieved, such as the Monaco or Monza Grand Prix tracks, or historic championships like the Targa Florio.
With the Racing Sixties series, Vespa hopes to offer classic motorsport style, immortalized in its tailor-made approach with specially selected materials with tactile values and a touch of exclusivity in the details.
Receiving the Vespa Racing Sixties treatment are its two sporty models, the GTS Super and Sprint. They come in a pairing of simple colors, a choice of Green Bosco (yellow stripes on green), or White Innocenza (red stripes on white). The contrast color is applied in clean graphic lines and on the front tie. Punctuating the liveries are a matte black finish applied to the passenger grab handles and footrests, the front and rear light setting, the silencer cover, the rear-view mirrors, the onboard instrument cluster base and shield trim, as well as the crest on the front mudguard of the Vespa GTS Super.
Also unique to the series are custom touches. For this series only, the classic chrome plated wheels now come in a gold metallic finish.
The seats also get a special touch with soft, velvety nubuck, coated in PVC for all weather protection. They're finished with artisan-style stitching reminiscent of that seen on 1960s sports cars.
To complete the Racing Sixties look, Vespa also offers a special range of garments and matching helmets.
The Racing Sixties helmets feature an adjustable ventilation system and an external fibreglass shell with anti UV ray paint, a scratch-proof visor, and a removable hypo-allergenic interior. Finally, it's secured with a double D ring fastening system. Vespa also offers a Racing Sixties clothing line with t-shirts, sweatshirts in similar designs.
