Vespa Motorsport COVID-19 update

Dear Customer,

Social Distancing 

The state of California has ordered all non-essential workers to stay home until further notice to decrease the spread of COVID-19 (Corona Virus). We are running on extremely reduced staff. These are the adjustments we’ve made to our operation:

•    All online orders will be fulfilled. 
•    Phone lines are open, but staff is limited.
•    Please 
Log in to, where you can buy parts and accessories (free delivery on orders over $100 – terms and conditions apply), download parts/service books, and watch our huge library of YouTube Videos
•    Our Parts email is working,, but will be limited in responses. 
•    SHOWROOM is by appointment ONLY. Local customers please call us, we can get you Parts and a New or Used scooter if it is essential. 
•     SERVICE has been deemed essential, but due to limited techs it is by appointment ONLY. 
•     Please call 619-280-1718 for more details and updates. 
•    Adjusted Shop hours are 10am to 6pm Monday though Friday (CLOSED SATURDAY AND SUNDAY)

At the center of our company’s purpose is a commitment to helping all of our valued customers, near and far, and it’s something we take to heart in good times and bad. I guess this falls under BAD TIMES, but we’ll be back in full swing as soon as we are allowed.

We truly wish everyone the best. The health of our employees and customers is paramount, if we’re not healthy we can’t get out and scoot!  

For those times you are allowed out during the lock down – to make food runs, pick up your prescriptions, bank runs, etc. – consider taking your scooter!  Riding your scooter is an excellent means of social distancing and wonderful for your mental health in these stressful times. There shouldn’t be too many cars on road, so it should make for a very pleasant ride. Just make sure to wear a full face helmet, gloves, and keep your social distance. 

We would also like to extend our best wishes to our business partners, friends, and family in Italy. Please stay safe and healthy. 

Vespa. Everywhere. 


The Vespa Elettrica is available NOW!

We have one Elettrica in stock NOW (May 13th 2019) and are taking pre-orders for more.

Mobility in general, and electric mobility in particular, will never be the same again.
The Vespa Elettrica is a contemporary icon of Italian technology in the world, a synonym for advanced connectivity and silence, personalisation and accessibility, respect for the environment and style. These values have always characterized the Vespa and are fully implemented again today in the Vespa Elettrica, confirming Vespa as a pioneering brand on its market.
With a power unit delivering top power of 4 kW, the Vespa Elettrica, assisted by the dynamic performance typical of electric engines, outshines a traditional 50cc scooter, particularly in regards to acceleration and hill starts.

It guarantees easy, agile and enjoyable riding on city roads, even at the very low speeds of congested urban traffic, with the added benefits of absolute silence and absence of vibrations, helping to make cities less chaotic and more livable by avoiding both air and acoustic pollution.

The Vespa Elettrica has a maximum range of 65 miles, a value that changes little between urban and extra-urban environments thanks to the scooter’s modern lithium ion battery and efficient kinetic energy recovery system, which recharges the battery during deceleration. To recharge the battery the rider simply plugs the cable located in the compartment below the saddle into a normal electric wall socket or into one of the recharging points that are becoming a common sight in today’s cities. A complete recharge normally takes 4 hours.

We have ONE in stock NOW and it will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.  MSRP is $7,499.00 (plus taxes and dealer fees)

The Travel Channel’s Toy Hunter visits Vespa Motorsport


Host, Jordan Hembrough, scoots his way to San Diego.

Tune in to Travel Channel Wednesday February 26th (9pm/8pm central) to watch a super special episode of the Toy Hunter as he digs around Vespa Motorsport for some rare toys. As many may know, a lot of us at Vespa Motorsport (especially, founder Alex Cohn) are big toy collectors. Heck, even the scooters can be considered big toys. Although Jordan didn’t buy a scooter this time around, he test drove one and picked up some cool toys. Make sure to catch this fun episode of the Toy Hunter. TUNE in, DVR it, VCR it, or DOWNLOAD it, but make sure to WATCH it!
