Vespa 125 Sei Giorni 1951

This was a vehicle developed for trial racing, in which it enjoyed considerable success. Its styling was very similar to that of the standard models, except for a larger fuel tank, wraparound leg shield and a larger right side sack to house the carburetor on the cylinder.
It earned its name by competing in the 26th International 6-Day Event of 1951, at which it won nine gold medals. The Piaggio racing team was composed of: Biasci, CAu, Granchi, Mazzoncini, Merlo, Nesti, Opessi, Riva, Romano and Vivaldi. In 1951 the Vespa 125 Sei Giorni also won the Motorcycle Italian Federation Trophy.
