Only VESPA’s naturally-occurring “wasp extract” peptide provides a
safe & effective way to tap into the virtually limitless power of “fat
as fuel” for natural human high-performance. The emerging sports science
of “fat-adaptation”, “keto-adaptation” and “metabolic efficiency” is not
new to us. VESPA has been leading the "fat as fuel" approach for over 15
years and today is the de facto leader in fat-based performance.
makes VESPA different is the podium. Our fat-adapted focus and winning
pedigree spans over 15 years and includes Olympic Gold in events ranging
from Men’s Figure Skating, Hockey and the Marathon to today’s
ultra-endurance athletes who are shattering records at the outer edges
of human performance.
Vespa Model History
From the very first 98cc model in
1946 to the 2003 Granturismo and the Vespa S in 2007, Piaggio has
produced over 144 models, versions and variants of the Vespa (marked by
different chassis codes): 144 models that trace the technical evolution
of the world's most famous scooter.
By the time the Vespa ET4 was launched in 1996, over 20,000
modifications had been made to the original 1946 product and over 1,500
It is difficult to pick out the most representative Vespas in an
evolution that has lasted over 60+ years. Some Vespas are sought after
by collectors because they belong to a special series, or because they
were rapidly replaced by subsequent versions, and are highly priced in
the period scooter market, which is extremely active all over the world.
Others, which were produced in greater numbers or stayed on the market
longer, are classic scooter models that have left their mark in the
history of two-wheeled mobility.
There is no lack of authentic technical records in the Vespa's history,
each of which renews the tradition of innovation that has marked the
evolution of the world's best selling motor scooter.
OFM (Optimized Fat Metabolism) was created & developed for VESPA
athletes to consistently obtain the “game-changing” performance and
health benefits of using VESPA and getting the body back to its natural
state of using “fat as your fuel” for aerobic metabolism. OFM is an
integrated, multi-facetted approach to help the athlete make that
fundamental shift back to burning “fat as fuel” for aerobic metabolism,
even at higher aerobic levels. Emerging science from the is confirming
what VESPA athletes already know; that fat metabolism plays a much
larger role than previously thought possible and actually helps make
carbohydrate use more powerful and sustainable.
The Vespa is such an iconic symbol of Italy that
we're forgiven for assuming the ancient Romans must have ridden the
two-wheeled scooters on their daily excursions around town. In fact,
Vespas are a post-war creation of the Piaggio company, which started out
in 1884 manufacturing parts for ships, railroad cars, and, eventually,
The first Vespa (Italian for wasp, the name was reportedly coined by
Enrico Piaggio himself) rolled off the assembly line in 1946. The Vespa
was unique among in the way it allowed riders to sit upright in a
position that was ergonomically correct, before people even thought much
about such things. The 98cc scooter also had guards beneath the rider’s
feet and over the tires, to keep the rider from being splattered by mud
and debris. It was, in short, a very civilized motorcycle.
By 1953, the year Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn rode a Vespa
through the streets of Rome for the film Roman Holiday, some 500,000
Vespas had been produced — estimates suggest the film accounted for an
additional 100,000 sales. The line of Vespas had now grown to include a
larger 125cc Vespa U (for Utility), with a rack behind the seat (only
7,000 of these rare Vespas were made). In 1962, Salvador Dali painted a
Vespa 150, and collectible bikes from 1963 include the smaller Vespa 50
and the 125cc Primavera.

not overly emphasize any benefits or flaws, as this can make the ad

license. If this is a relevant piece of information, it should be

scooters below can give an idea of what a Vespa is and what can be
expected of one.
As one of the top selling scooters in the country, you can easily find
a Vespa for sale
. Whether you want a used, new or
, you can find a vehicle to suit your
needs. When you shop for your scooter, you can look for a few
features to determine what it is you really want in the Vespa
You can begin by looking at the newer models to see what
specifications are available in the scooter to help make your
One of the first things you may notice about the Vespa is
how fast they can go. For instance, some scooters can achieve a top
speed of nearly 40 miles per hour while some can get to speeds up to
60 and 80. While many Vespas have a range of 65 to 70 per gallon in
fuel, there are also a few that have speeds from 85 to 90.
You can then begin to look at the various models of Vespas to see
which one best suits your personality. For example, the LX 50 4V is
comfortable yet sophisticated. It achieves a top speed of about 40
miles per hour but uses between 85 and 90 miles of fuel per gallon.
On the other hand, you have the GTV 300. This vintage style machine
is known for its power. Although it can go up to 80 miles per hour,
it has a slightly lower per gallon fuel range of 65 to 70.
If you want a newer style model that is sleek and smooth as well as
fast, you can try the GTS 300, like the GTV 300, it achieves speeds of
80 miles an hour and has the same fuel range of 65 to 70 gallons for
each mile. You can even upgrade this particular model with the GTS
300 Super if you prefer not only a more contemporary look but also a
sportier look and faster machine. However, if speed is important to
you, you may consider an efficient model such as the S 50 4V.
You also need to consider where you will drive your Vespa
when you choose one. For instance, if you plan to take to the highway
as well as regular city streets, you need to look at a machine such as
the LXV 350 i.e. that can handle both these arenas. Of course, you
also need to consider the price
