Piaggio Vespa 125 V11T "Bacchetta", 1951, Italia

With the 1951 Vespa 125 we can start talking about a true “boom”.

The public is no longer skeptical as during the first presentation in 1946. The 125cc is also more advanced than the previous model.

The comfort is way better thanks to the spring suspensions on both wheels. A damper is still lacking but compared to the 98 the driving experience improved considerably.

Performance also improved, with a faster acceleration and a top speed of 70 kph.

This 1951 Vespa 125 V11T is also known as Bacchetta” (“Rod“) because of the external rods that control the gearbox.

At the Museo an iconic exhibition was dedicated to the Vespa for its 70th anniversary: Exhibition Vespa 70 anni x 70 modelli”.
