The Vespa 125 VNB was Piaggio’s entry-level scooter, replacing the 125 VNA model in 1960. Beginning with the VNB1t, the model went through a record six major iterations before production ceased in 1965 when it was replaced by the Vespa 125 Super (VNC1t).


The example seen here is one of the very last VNBs off of the Italian assembly line. These final VNB6t versions featured several items more commonly seen on the later “Super” models, including the embossed alloy “Vespa” badge rather than the flat sheet-type seen on most VNBs, also featured are the later, simpler Super-type saddle seat, and the larger taillight more commonly seen on GL, SS, Super and Sprint models. This Vespa was restored by us to exact factory condition, with all anomalies left intact for the uninitiated to question.
