Vespa ET3 Primavera - 1976

The Vespa Primavera ET3 is a specific, limited-edition variant (144,000 units were produced overall) of the Vespa “Primavera”. The initials ET3 indicate that the vehicle had electronic ignition and that the engine's single cylinder had a third transfer port. The smaller-sized body, like that of the Vespa 50cc, gave the vehicle more manoeuvrability, a feature that made this Vespa the favourite of 1970s youngsters. The seat the colour of blue jeans of the first few units produced reveals the link between the young and the Primavera ET3. The 125cc ET3's engine resembled the Primavera's from the outside but was much faster and more powerful (7 bhp), so that for a long time it was the speediest Vespa of its category.
