A UNIQUE PROJECT TO BE UNVEILED IN FEBRUARY 2022, CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF FREEDOM & THE LOVE OF DESIGN

Los Angeles, 17TH December 2021 – Driven by the desire to explore creativity,  celebrate style and design, and have some fun doing it, Justin Bieber and Vespa today announce one of the most unexpected and exciting collaborations of 2022.

The meeting of the world’s biggest pop star and the classic Italian brand is no chance encounter. Style and design are a source of constant inspiration for Justin, while Vespa has always been close to the world of music and youth culture. 

“My fans know how much I love sports: skateboarding, hockey, basketball, BMX. I’ve always been drawn to that mix of style, grace and speed,” said Justin Bieber.

I’m excited to put my spin on the iconic Italian design of Vespa.

Stay tuned for the 2022 unveiling of an exciting new collaboration between two contemporary global icons: Justin Bieber and Vespa.

FUN, FRIENDSHIP AND FREEDOM

Vespa takes us on a journey between reality and imagination

Since its origin, Vespa has transported us into colourful and carefree journeys – places that we could only dream of. Vespa has also always been synonymous with exuberance and it’s capable of “putting things in motion.” This same positive energy comes through in the all-new Disney and Pixar animated film, Luca, streaming on Disney+ starting June 18th. The film features the type of early, fundamental friendship that helps someone grow and ultimately develop into a better version of themselves. And throughout the film, Vespa acts as a symbol of this positive message.

The special collaboration with Disney and Pixar for Luca, in which Vespa tugs at the heartstrings of children and adults alike, comes as Vespa celebrates its 75th birthday. Vespa’s role in the film seems natural and represents the ultimate expression of freedom for the main characters as they set out to experience life above the surface and acquire a Vespa of their own.

The colourfulness that distinguishes Vespa is not only expressed in the vehicles themselves, but also through the personalities of those who choose to ride: interesting people who are young at heart and love to travel (both literally, as well as with their imagination).

So it's no surprise that Vespa is featured in Disney and Pixar’s Luca, which coincides with the biggest Vespa celebration to date!

Disney and Pixar’s Luca captures all the colours of summertime, which is full of sun and endless holidays. It’s these same colours that make us smile when we think of riding our Vespa home from the beach with the sea salt still on our skin.

However, Luca and Vespa have something else in common, a love of iconic 'Italianism.'

Like Vespa, Luca director Enrico Casarosa is Italian and has gained international success through his work: directing and producing animated films that win over adults and children around the world!

In a tale like Luca, the ability to thrill and move an audience comes through naturally, albeit with typical Italian style! The film celebrates memories that last a lifetime, thanks to the power of friendship, and it explores themes such as discovery and adventure, which arise from developing the courage to take risks and being open to new experiences. Throughout the film, Vespa becomes the protagonist’s ally during his adventurous journey, and ultimately represents a concentration of the character’s deepest values.

Because Vespa transports you to the happy places of your youth in a way that makes you feel forever young, it creates a unifying experience under the banner of friendship that lets you discover the world and expand your life. Vespa offers you the freedom to be yourself and enjoy adventure, especially with the unforgettable Italian style that we see rooted in the Ligurian land and culture depicted in Luca.

To see it for yourself, stream Luca now on Disney+ and enjoy the film

Vespa Racing Sixties

Vespa Racing Sixties

DESIGNED WITH THE RACING SPIRIT OF VESPA IN MIND. A VINTAGE STYLED SCOOTER THAT COMBINES THE CLASSIC LOOK OF VESPA WITH A SIXTIES RETRO AESTHETIC.

The Sixties was a legendary decade for racing and motoring history. This mix of sportiness, the love of speed and racing success from this era was the inspiration behind the GTS Super Racing Sixties. Original new graphics which make a stylish statement and a choice of racing green body work with contrasting yellow decals or a bright white with bold striking red stripes.

A brand new saddle, gold coloured wheel rims and matt black trims are the perfect accents to highlight the sporty style of this model. Choose from either a 125 or 300cc engine.

The inspiration behind the Vespa Racing Sixties series is the “gentlemen riders” who raced in the sixties, a decade when freedom of expression extended to how you personalised your vehicle. Riders were filled with a spirit for independence, going to great lengths to recruit the perfect teams, select the right races and choose the perfect look for their scooters.

Colours and graphics often had a connection to the riders country of origin or the brand that had supported them. When it comes to the Vespa Racing Sixties special series the style choices echo the exploits of those legendary sporting personalities and the events that made them become so iconic, such as the Monaco and Monza Grand Prix or the historic Targa Florio endurance race.

Which is why the Racing Sixties Special Series, with its striking new liveries are a combination of sporting colours with bold graphics and exclusive details.

Vespa Elettrica is recognised at the Compasso d’Oro awards

                                      

ICONIC VESPA STYLE, IN ITS MOST INNOVATIVE VERSION, RECEIVES AN HONORABLE MENTION AT THE 26TH EDITION OF THE WORLD’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS DESIGN AWARDS

With the implementation of electric technology, Vespa confirms its status as a timeless icon and a symbol of the future.  The 26th ADI Compasso d’Oro Awards saw the Vespa Elettrica receive an honourable mention and a prestigious acknowledgment to recognise excellence in global design.  The international judging panel described the scooter with high regard “Vespa Elettica confirms the innovative, pioneering spirt of Vespa, a unique and unmistakeable brand in the global mobility market”.

The unrivalled modern icon of Italian style and technology, the Vespa Elettrica is synonymous with advanced connectivity, noiselessness, unique design, customisation, affordability and last but not least, respect for the environment.  These values are not new to the Vespa brand, but have never been more comprehensively expressed than with the Elettrica which confirms the brand's stand as a step ahead of its time.

Founded in 1954, the ADI Compasso d'Oro (Golden Compass) awards are the oldest and most widely respected in the design world. The brain child of Gio Ponti, they were introduced as a way to recognise outstanding Italian design. Since 1964, ADI (Association of Industrial Design) has managed the awards, ensuring integrity and impartiality. In over half a century, almost 300 winning items and 2000 products / designs that have received an Honourable Mention have been gathered and kept in the ADI Compasso d’Oro Award Historical Collection.

Recipients of the Compasso d'Oro award are chosen based on pre-selections made by the ADI Permanent Design Observatory.  This consists of a committee of experts, designers, critics, historians, specialist journalists, members and non-members of the ADI, all of whom gather year after year to evaluate and select the best products which are then published in the annual ADI Design Index.

This is not the first time that Piaggio Group has been recognised by ADI and the Compasso d'Oro, they where also awarded in the nineties and also received an Honourable mention for the Vespa 946 in 2016.

This year's award ceremony took place in the new ADI Design Museum in Milan, where the Vespa Elettrica will be on display until 16th September, together with all of the other products that were part of the 2020 competition.

For further information or details about visiting the “26th Compasso d'Oro – Putting down roots” exhibition visit www.adi-design.org.

The design of the Vespa Elettrica is in keeping with the iconic style that has won the hearts of generations of people throughout its 75 year history. Like other Vespas the Elettrica has the same high quality steel body which is finished in an exclusive grey. Available in either 45 km/h or 70 km/h versions and categorised as a moped this stunning scooter is perfect for urban travel or for those wanting to go further afield.

LET'S VESPA

                                      

It's time to get back on the move! In a time when rules are changing and distance are more important than ever, there really is no better travel companion than Vespa.

The world's most beloved scooter is resurrecting the iconic “Lets Vespa” slogan exactly 70 years after it was first launched.  At the time Europe was embarking on a post-war reconstruction and was in the initial stages of the economic boom.  Vespa represented the return not only of mobility, but more fundamentally freedom.

Seven decades on, what does “Lets Vespa” mean today? Its the call to reclaim freedom and the ability to move around independently in total safety.  It means each of us taking control of the distance we maintain, opting to avoid queues, traffic and crowds. With Vespa this can be accomplished in style.

The new campaign by BBH London highlights Vespa's link with the world of art, with contributions from four renowned artists from the international graphic design scene. English artist Paul Thurlby, Quentine Monge of France, Sebastian Curi from Argentina and Italian Agostino Lacurci have created their own take on themes that celebrate the reconnection between human beings and some acts or rituals that had to be foregone during lockdown.

The first version of Lets Vespa was launched in 1950 and featured the artwork of Nino Ferenzi (also know as Ferencich), with later versions coming from high profile names in the advertising world including Bernard Villemot of France and the Italian Zambelli.  The message was clear; Vespa was the new way to get around, faster, easier and more affordable than a car.

“Let’s Vespa” signified a linguistic revolution, creating a verb from the name of a brand and going on to be used in legendary campaigns such as “Chi Vespa mangia le mele” [Who Vespa eats the apples] and a decade later “Giovane chi Vespa” [The young who Vespa].

Over the years Vespa's advertising messages continued to break the mould, with posters often becoming keepsakes and souvenirs of personal adventures and important moments. Since 1946, when the first scooter was produced, over 18 million Vespas have followed, creating an extraordinary passion and community all over the world.    Vespa has seamlessly navigated across all social classes, lead revolutions in clothing and music. Through the good times and the bad, Vespa has become the world's leading brand when it comes to getting around and a symbol of global freedom.

Vespamania: Our Love for Josh Rogers

Vespa has been winning the hearts of fans for 75 years. We recently spent some time chatting with Josh Rogers, a US-based collector.

As an icon of design, Vespa has become a universal symbol of Italian style. With a storied past and an eye on the future, Vespa speaks to people regardless of age or location. Choosing to ride a Vespa is not a decision rooted in purely practical needs as Vespa transcends function and exudes a type of stylish, lighthearted, joyful lifestyle.


That’s why Vespa riders are not just fans of the brand, but often become enthusiasts of all things Vespa, as we saw in Josh Rogers.

Earlier this summer, Josh invited us to visit his collection of Vespas in San Jose, California. His garage is filled with Vespas. He owns a specialized collection of Vespas including some of the rarest models produced, and he is always searching for the next find. For Josh, collecting Vespas is akin to owning a piece of history. His collection encompasses models spanning decades, engines and colors, and he also has a vast treasure trove of memorabilia, including posters, gadgets, pins, games and other novelty items.

Josh’s passion began when he bought his first Vespa at age 18, after noticing one after a ska concert and falling in love with its visual design and the sound of its engine.  “I think I went from being a driver to a collector the moment when I bought my second model,” he notes.

His love for Vespa has spilled over into other aspects of his life, including a community of other Vespa enthusiasts .
“I like driving them, I like collecting them, and thanks to them I’ve made some wonderful friendships. Passion is my driving force,” he notes.

Whenever Josh has found a rare, old Vespa, he works with a specialized mechanic to restore them to near perfect original condition. Once the restoration is done, the hunt for the next scooter begins because, as he says, you can never have too many Vespas.”

His personal “holy grail” is the 1946 Vespa 98 model, inscribed on the Historical Register: the third Vespa model made in the history of the brand. It’s rarity and museum-quality allows him to refer to the model as “the Bugatti of scooters.”

One model that stands out and makes him feel the sexiest is the Vespa GS Cushman, a model he has used when riding round trip from San Jose to Morro Bay in California.

For several years now Josh has been the president of VCOF, the Vespa Club of America, whose members share a passion for scooters and for spending time together at various conventions and events. “My collection is a reflection of the relationships I’ve built over time and the people I’ve met,” he says.

Thanks, Josh! We hope you will continue to find more treasures to restore.
