The police and most major insurers advise using a cover whenever the scooter is parked, because this simple precaution prevents criminals identifying whether yours is a model on their ‘shopping list’ and provides another time-consuming obstacle for thieves.
Model-specific for a snug fit and maximum coverage, Vespa Genuine Outdoor Covers are 100% waterproof, to keep the weather out, and breathable, to prevent the build-up of condensation and moisture around the scooter.
The material is resistant to heat, cold and harmful UV rays, so will keep on protecting for seasons to come. A draw-cord at the base secures the cover, preventing flapping and billowing in windy conditions and helping to prevent it being lifted by opportunists.
They also feature reinforced cut-outs through which a chain or D-lock can be passed – a great visible deterrent for thieves and at the same time preventing the cover itself from being removed.
Shaped to allow for a windscreen and top box, they feature a clear window for the number plate. A reflective strip and Vespa logo help the scooter stand out to other road-users.
Genuine Vespa Scooter Covers are available for the GTS and GTS Super, retailing for £77-, and to fit the PX, Primavera and Sprint, at £67- (including VAT). For details on these and the complete range of Vespa official accessories visit www.fowlersparts.co.uk.
