It’s not a name you typically associate with the International Six Days Enduro, but in 1951 in Varese, Italy, Vespa scored nine individual gold medals in the Sei Giorni. The brand has now announced a commemorative edition GTS scooter to honor the occasion – the Vespa Sei Giorni.
At its core is a liquid-cooled 278cc Single. It’s got an automatic CVT transmission, steel body construction, single arm fork and coil spring out front with dual shocks out back. Anti-lock brakes front and rear add a layer of additional safety.
But the unique charm of the Vespa Sei Giorni is its aesthetic appeal. The “faro basso” headlight, set low on the front fender, burnished windshield, black number plates drawn directly from the livery of the Squadra Corse from the ‘50s. The single-look saddle, black wheels and exhaust silencer. And, of course, for those that want to be assured of its exclusivity, the Special Edition plate housed on the backside of the leg shield plate. Vespa will also be offering Sei Giorni specific accessories – helmets, jackets, apparel and more – for riders that want to complete the look.
