The Sprint is the sporty version of the Primavera

The Sprint was first put in to production in 1965 and was discontinued eleven years later. The Sprint is meant for those who want a sportier ride and sees minor exterior changes from the Primavera. The scooter gets a redesigned  rectangular shaped headlamp and a more angular front end. The rear gets new grab rails while rest of the design details are carried over from the Primavera. The instrument cluster will get a mix of analogue speedometer and digital readouts.

The scooter boasts better cornering abilities and high speed stability due to the use of broader tyres around the seven spoke 12-inch alloy wheels

Powering the Sprint is a 125cc, 3 valve motor with electronic fuel injection generating 10.9PS of power and a turning force of 7.7Nm. The brakes are 200mm disc at the front and 140mm drum setup at the rear. The scooter boasts better cornering abilities and high speed stability due to the use of broader tyres around the seven spoke 12-inch alloy wheels. Another change implemented is the position of the battery which has changed from its regular underseat place to being under the floor board.

 

The Sprint is available in vintage yellow, blue, and red in the UK. The bike is priced at 3771 pounds (Rs 3,83,295) on the road.
