In 1948, Piaggio launched its new Vespa. With respect to the original model, the engine size had been increased to 125 cc, and a shock-absorber mounted on the rear wheel offered a more comfortable ride. The front-wheel suspension had been modified too, with the arm being mounted to the right of the wheel, where it would remain for years to come. Also, the engine casing now opened upwards giving easy access to the engine, clutch, gearbox and so on.
