Vespa Sei Giorni: the origins of a legend
The year was 1951 and the Piaggio Squadra Corse astonished the racing world, triumphing over real off-road motorbikes in one of the hardest and most prestigious competitions. In the post-war period, regularity competitions were in their heyday: these were taxing trials on extremely hard routes, hundreds of kilometres long. An extraordinary test bench for man and machine.
The most prestigious competition was the Sei Giorni Internazionale which, in its 26th edition, was held in Varese.
The ten Vespas at the start were welcomed with overall scepticism: what could they possibly hope to achieve against real motorbikes designed for competitions? But Vespa, with the model created specifically for that race starting with the Sport version, dominated to take no less than 9 individual gold medals. It was a crushing supremacy achieved on impervious off-road routes and with a pure speed trial on the Monza circuit that also earned Piaggio the Industry Gold Medal as the only Italian team to win the trial.
The Vespa “Sei Giorni” which took its name from that victory, was very similar to the standard model aesthetically, differing primarily with its larger fuel tank, the more streamlined shield and the larger right side bag to host the carburettor on the cylinder. That Sei Giorni model is one of the absolutely most legendary in the history of Vespa: it is now highly sought after by collectors and it is one of the most valuable Vespas in the world since it was produced in a limited edition, only around 300 units, obviously destined for the regularity competitions.
