Limited Edition 2018 Vespa Sei Giorni 300 IE Overview
The Racing Soul of Vespa
The technology and touring vocation so typical of the Vespa GTS family meet the history and most genuine sport tradition of Vespa. And so the Vespa Sei Giorni is born, a special version, produced in numbered edition, heir to the original Vespa Sport “Sei Giorni”. A model that became part of the legend, built specifically for the taxing “Sei Giorni Internazionale di Varese” regularity competition of 1951, where it was the undisputed protagonist, earning 9 gold medals.
The origins of a legend
The year was 1951 and the Piaggio Squadra Corse astonished the racing world, triumphing over real off-road motorbikes in one of the hardest and most prestigious competitions: the Sei Giorni Internazionale which was held in Varese.
The Vespa “Sei Giorni” which took its name from that victory, was very similar to the standard model aesthetically, differing primarily with its larger fuel tank, the more streamlined shield and the larger right side bag. That Sei Giorni model is one of the most legendary in the history of Vespa and it is now highly sought after by collectors
A unique style
The style of the new Vespa Sei Giorni is unmistakeably reminiscent of Vespa’s classic nature. Characteristic elements are the “faro basso”, the low position of the headlight assembly on the front fender, as well as the handlebar like the one on the original Vespa Sei Giorni, characterized by the simplicity of the exposed metal pipe.
The sporty spirit is also highlighted by the black number plate taken directly from the livery of the Vespa and it is enhanced by all black parts and by gritty red details. Lastly, on the leg shield back plate, the “Special Edition” plate bearing the serial number is a reminder of the unique nature of this special model.
Comfort and safety

The seating is natural and allows total control over the vehicle and absolute comfort even for long distances.

Piaggio was the first worldwide company to introduce advanced active safety systems such as ABS & ASR on a scooter, now available on the GTS range. ABS. Each wheel is equipped with a detection system (a sensor and a phonic wheel) that instantly measure speed and deceleration. The sensors communicate with a hydraulic control unit with two channels that activates the ABS system if one of the wheels decelerates quickly relative to the vehicle, avoiding locking and ensuring stability and efficient braking.
ASR (Anti Slip Regulation). It uses the ABS electronics and sensors to compare the wheel speed rotation of the two wheels. When the sensors detect the rear wheel speed exceeds that of the front, the control unit intervenes cutting the engine toque by spark advance reduction and, if necessary, also on the injection system to prevent slippage and prevent loss of vehicle control . These solutions put Vespa on the top level regarding safety and technology.
