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)

We’re joined by long time customer and friend Beau Hufford. Beau is a talented multimedia artist that has recently joined our team as creative director for our new campaign “Vespa. Everywhere.”
We discuss Beau’s fascination with scooters and how he ended up in San Diego, buying a Vespa from our shop. We then get into the “Vespa. Everywhere.” campaign and how you can participate in this exciting new adventure!
Raven Fischer is another local scooter and powersports enthusiast. She has been a friend and customer of the shop for many years and shares our love of all things with two wheels (and sometimes 4 wheels in her case). Raven runs the successful blog, Raventurous, that chronicles her journey to push the limits of her comfort zone.
We also talk about our upcoming 24th anniversary shop party happening on September 10th, 2016.
Our guest this episode is Conrad Macy. Conrad has been involved in the San Diego scooter scene since the early 80’s and operated his own independent scooter repair service in town. Conrad talks about everything from his first scooter, to building a water piston engine, to working on monkey space missions in Russia! You heard us right, “monkey space missions in Russia”!
We welcome local music icon Bart Mendoza to the show. Not only has Bart been a legend in the San Diego music scene since the 80’s, he’s ridden his Vespa for just as long! Bart is responsible for acts such as Manual Scan and The Shambles, as well as producing articles for just about every publication in town. Bart fills us in on his history in the San Diego Mod Scene and his love of scooters and music.
