If asked, many who’ve been enthusiasts of anything on wheels back in the day would say that the ‘60s were the golden age of racing. May it be in the form of an automobile or a motorbike, the common denominator would always be mankind’s relentless pursuit of speed and victory.
Over 5 decades have passed; the same passion for thrill and excitement on wheels never faded. In fact, it has thrived quite a lot, thanks to modernization.
Vespa knows this by heart. That’s why through its official local distributor, MotiItalia Philippines, Inc. (a partner of the Autohub Group), the Italian scooter specialist proudly presented its “Racing Sixties” edition of the latest GTS Super and Sprint.
Inspiration for the Vespa “Racing Sixties” series comes from the gentlemen riders’ races of the 1960s, a world in which freedom of expression extended as far as the vehicle customisation arena. During that decade, riders were fuelled by a great spirit of independence and autonomy, determinedly choosing their team, the races in which to compete, and even the aesthetics of their vehicle, particularly in terms of its colors, graphics and materials that banner the riders’ nationalities.
