A fine morning of camaraderie for Vespa enthusiasts.
Over 800 Vespa owners and enthusiasts flocked to the The Garden, Okada Manila’s latest attraction, to witness the launch of the new Vespa S. With new colors to choose from, the 2020 edition of the famous Vespa model will surely captivate the already excited riders, and will complement the older models.
As a precursor to the event, members of various Vespa clubs congregated first at the parking lot of a famous coffee outlet a few kilometers out, organizing a short but eventful motorcade to the parking lot at Okada. This culminated in a very colorful display of different model year of the famed scooter in the outside lot, with most riders dressed in their Sunday best. The parking lot provided was filled to the brim, in fact. Dozens of Vespas had to park inside the complex to accommodate the influx of riders.
In his short speech, a visibly elated Mr. Willy Tee Ten, President of Motoitalia, (exclusive distributor for Vespa), thanked the enthusiastic crowd for their participation, and egged the riders to go around and meet other club members. Today is “Viva la Vespa Day” exclaimed Mr. Tee Ten.
The hearty buffet breakfast was followed by the launch of the new Vespa S. In attractive new colors; namely Gray Titanio, Yellow Sole, White Innocenza, Black Vulcano, and Blue Vivace – all in more brilliant hue. SRP is reportedly PHP145,000
The program concluded with awards given to the best-dressed Vespa riders, as well as recognition for most members that attended.
In conclusion, Mr. Willy Tee Ten promised a larger and more colorful breakfast ride in the future, much to the elation of all who were there at the Garden.
