    Vespa 100 Super Sprint

    The Super Sprint series of bikes, which included models that featured 90cc, 100cc, 125cc, 150cc, and 200cc engines, was considered the gold standard for road performance and top speed amongst all of the lines of Vespa models produced during the company’s golden age, between the early 1960s and the mid 1980s.  While the Super Sprint bikes usually were very similar to the standard models (i.e. Vespa 100) that they were augmented versions of, the major differences in most Super Sprint models such as the Vespa 100 Super Sprint were enhancements to internal engine performance that helped produced higher top speeds and more efficient internal combustion and exhaust intake than their relations in the basic line.  The Vespa 100 Super Sprint itself was notable for being the largest of the small frame Super Sprint bikes, maintaining the desirably easy and simple structure of the small frame bike while providing the enhanced road performance of a Super Sprint model.  This led to the bike being popularly consumed by market followers despite its relatively small production time in the early 1970s, and a more limited number of the bikes making it to American shores (as, much like other small frame bikes, the Vespa 100 Super Sprint lacked several features that made it both legal and practical on more-regulated American roads and highways).

    While this impracticality remains true (probably more so) on American roads today, with the advent of scooter and bike usage in the age of skyrocketing gas prices, the Vespa 100 Super Sprint does fill a niche of being a capable bike for urban usage while also retaining good gas mileage and the structural simplicity of the small frame models it represents.  Key about this is that by limiting the number of extraneous gadgets and pieces both internally and externally on the Vespa 100 Super Sprint, the bike is still easily maintained and the list of parts that could potentially malfunction or need replacing is much smaller than many of the more complex large frame bikes that were equally popular and produced in greater numbers during the same time frame.  As such, the Vespa 100 Super Sprint, despite its increasing rarity due to its relatively low production numbers, should still be considered a desirable ride that features the greater style and sleekness of the Super Sprint bikes while also retaining the practicality of a small frame bike.
