VESPA PS 240 SCOOTER & SERVICE
Vespa Tuning project in their own right: By far the most expensive Vespa conversion from our Hamburg Vespa workshop, in which we have hineingepackt our entire know-how and experience gained from 15 years of Vespa Tuning, repair shop and Customizing.
Our Vespa demonstrator PS 240 is completed – In the near future the TÜV approval …
The Scooter + Service Vespa demonstrator is not far from completion – the electrical system with elektonischer controller Motogadget M-Unit, Motoscope Pro multifunction instrument servomotor with programmable control unit for the exhaust control and various additional special solutions is up and working.
Now lacking basically “only” various details such as the final installation of cooling tubes, final assembly of side fenders, horn, cables and so on – work, do not move routine under normal workshop with a Vespa project of its kind,
because here simply nothing “normal” …
VESPA CHASSIS – PS 240
The chassis tuning starts at this Vespa project already in the body:
A PX frame was connected to your GS rear, related to the small, customized for hybrid chassis side covers and the GS fender remains visually ultimately only the brake pedal as a recognition.
Advantage of the connection of Vespa PX and GS is the shallower rake the PX body compared to the GS models, resulting in a significantly better directional stability and also provides the ability to place the Cosa Superlow fork by trimming the lower steering bearing seat again deeper, without the wing abuts frames or cascade.
The GS tail is compared to PX or Sprint models significantly shorter, “Down Lamp” -Seitenhauben a super compact overall appearance contributes in conjunction with the small – besides normal Largeframe Vespas sees the PS 240 from such a small frame, focusing even more is about 20 mm lower than with a Vespa 50N.
Vespa Tuning means consistency of components: The brake system has to do with this Vespa Custom lot, we decided at the Vespa disc brake course for Scooter + Service 4-piston radial brakes in conjunction with a floating stage 6 disc and the radial master cylinder Magura with 12mm piston – this Vespa disc brake brings the front tires even at 2-finger operation to cry, leaving the rear quickly easily.
High quality Vespa shock absorber – brings the ever much?
Yes: The shock absorbers are, particularly in faster Vespas, absolutely decisive for the war – the Front Stage 6 Vespa shock absorber is not only in compression and rebound damping and spring preload adjustable, but also still has the so-called “high-low” control, a progressive Setting possibility of jounce speed.
Together with the BGM Pro rear shock absorber has the PS 240 is definitely the best available on the market Vespa shock absorber – even on uneven roads or when braking before bends to the dedicated Vespa do drivers new worlds when it comes to the chassis stability and handling on – Vespa Tuning at its best.
VESPA MOTOR TUNING – PS 240
The engine of the Custom Vespa PS 240 based on a Rally 180 engine housing with PX 200 Lusso transmission – usually we use for Vespa Husqvarna Conversion a Vespa PX 200 motor housing, in this case, a well-preserved housing Rally was just available.
To accommodate the immense forces of the Vespa motor better and better distribute, a screw reinforcement structure has been developed – the adapter plate for receiving the 250cc Husqvarna cylinder features in addition to the 4 inner screw points still about 4 more screws to prevent bending of the adapter plate ,
After we had built an engine of this type already in early 2007, which carried 52 hp at the rear wheel, we are in this Vespa Tuning to other priorities:
Practicality, homogeneous power delivery, broadband, reliability, TÜV conformity – the engine was a total “defused”, so that we are fully satisfied with 38PS rear power in this Vespa Tuning project.
The crankshaft is developed on the basis of a long stroke Mazzucchelli full circle crankshaft for Vespa PX 200, which is equipped with an eccentric crank pin for 62,5mm stroke, one-worked from solid metal connecting rods in special lengths and tungsten weights to compensate for the translational masses.
Coupling this Vespa is of course our very own Vespa Cosa clutch with CNC machined clutch basket and clutch inner part – a conventional clutch Vespa would not withstand the stresses in the neck.
The exhaust this Custom Vespa is individually made in stainless steel of about 50 segments – as part of the everyday practicality of course with our “Silent” -Innendämmungs system. The Curley-design ensures, despite the ultra-low center of gravity for good ground clearance in inclined positions, the stainless steel exhaust is in our opinion a work of art in itself – construction period for the Vespa racing exhaust a total of about 60 hours.
