VBB

The history of the Vespa VBB:

The Vespa VBB owes its name to the prefix of its chasssis number. The VBB VBA followed the series , which was preceded by the widebody Vespa.
The VBA/VBB scooter got a completely new frame and engine note, this was the basis for almost all subsequent large frame Vespas. The latest PX engine example still fits in the frame of the VBA / VBB Vespa. The new engine increased the reliability significantly, reduced fuel and oil consumption. The carburetor was moved from under the seat to the top of the engine and h et chassis was slightly reduced. A closed control structure replaced the open steering of the models from the 50s. The VBB replaced the VBA in 1930 and introduced a four-speed gearbox instead of three. Four gears were previously only reserved for more expensive models. Moreover, VBB decorations in the aluminum hoods and a flat section under the rear number plate to a post.

VBC

The history of the Vespa VBC:

VBC (Italian pronunciation: vɛspa) is an Italian brand of scooter manufactured The name means wasp in Italian.

The Vespa has evolved from a single model motor scooter manufactured in 1946 by Piaggio & Co. S.p.A. of Pontedera, Italy to a full line of scooters and one of seven companies today owned by Piaggio.

From their inception, Vespa scooters have been known for their painted, pressed steel unibody which combines a complete cowling for the engine (enclosing the engine mechanism and concealing dirt or grease), a flat floorboard (providing foot protection), and a prominent front fairing (providing wind protection) into a structural unit.
