The first Vespa was completed in April 1946, after just three months design work by the gifted aeronautical engineer Corradino d’Ascanio. Piaggio itself was founded as long ago as 1884 by Rinaldo Piaggio, then only 20 years of age, to manufacture components for naval and railway applications.
Today, Piaggio’s core business is scooters, and they make them in a seemingly bewildering variety of specifications. The good old Vespa still lives on of course in 50, 80, 125 and 200 cc forms. Modern Vespas look very like their ancestors but nowadays have such refinements as electric starters, electronic ignition and fuel injection. Vespas still use steel bodywork whereas all other scooters produced by the Piaggio group are based on a tubular and sheet steel frame and plastic bodywork. The original left-handlebar mounted gearshifter is still a feature of the PX125 models, but every scooter covered by this Haynes Vespa manual uses the modern constantly variable automatic transmission that makes them such easy bikes to ride, especially in city traffic.
