Vespa 98 del 1946

The motoleggera utilitaria Vespa, or light motorised runabout, was presented to the public for the first time in April 1946 at the Rome golf club. The leg shield sported the new Piaggio logo, which replaced the former aeronautical emblem. The fortnightly magazine "La Moto" dedicated its cover to the Vespa and the new scooter sparked off curiosity, surprise but also a certain scepticism among the public. The first fifty vehicles were produced at Pontedera’s factory at the same time of the official presentation. For the first few months the Vespa was marketed by the Lancia dealer network, and a total of 2,484 were produced in its first year of life. And so the adventure of the world's most famous scooter began. The price of the Vespa 98 was of Lira 55,000 while the “luxury” version was sold at the price of Lira 66,000. The V98 has a 98 cc engine, a three-speed gearbox and a top speed of 60 km/h. The leg shield is evenly curved. There is no main stand and for parking it is leaned on an outrigger that protrudes from the rear footboard on the left and right.
