The Vespa Primavera is arguably one of the most popular nameplates in the Italian motorcycle manufacturer’s lineup right now. A timeless design paired with a capable and efficient engine in a beginner-friendly scooter is definitely an enticing package.
However, its pricing doesn’t necessarily make it affordable. It sells for P185,000 here in our market, so it’s definitely far from an entry-level ride. There are other more practical options available at maybe even half the price of the Primavera. That said, though, you have to keep in mind that is a Vespa, after all.
But if it makes you feel any better, we’re actually pretty lucky here on our side of the globe. In other countries where the Primavera is available—specifically in Malaysia and Thailand—this bike costs over P200,000. Meanwhile, in farther markets such as the US, the Primavera carries an even heftier price tag of over P260,000. Damn, that’s nearing the price range of tollway-legal bikes already.
Markets such as Vietnam’s and Indonesia’s, on the other hand, get better pricing at around P163,000 and P147,000, respectively. Does that make us feel bad? Not really, because at least it’s available in our market. In India, the Vespa VXL 150 is the closest you’ll get to a Primavera.
