Vespa has been a symbol of Italian style and effortless elegance. In Italian, the name means wasp. The major design element that catapulted Vespa scooters' popularity among consumers is the unisex styling, allowing them to be driven by finely dressed men and women in fashionable skirts. If the rider is riding short, sporadic distances across roadways with low-speed limits, Vespa scooters can become stylishly ideal machines. The styling of Vespa scooters also represents a key milestone in industrial design and culture as it changed billions of people post World War 2. In India as well, vintage Vespa parts have seen a pretty good response in the premium scooter segment.
