How Fast Does a Vespa Go?

Vespa scooters are known for their agility and zippy performance, but how fast does a Vespa go? Like any vehicle, the top speed of a new Vespa depends on the size and weight of its engine. Typically, a sub-50cc scooter can reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. Meanwhile, a scooter with a larger displacement can go up to nearly 80 mph. Learn more about the Vespa scooters, their speeds, and engines below!
