In Italian, Vespa signifies to wasp and was first introduced in 1946 to the world. Since then, it became a major brand known for its painted, pressed steel unibody which encloses the engine mechanism and conceal it from dirt or grease thus provide cowling for engine in a way. Also, there is a flat floorboard for better foot protection and nice front fairing to provide protection against strong winds.
