Modern disc brakes

Most elaborate Vespa conversion "Project PS 240"

By far the most complex Vespa conversion from Scooter & Service is the Vespa PS 240 project. For this, a PX frame was connected to a GS rear. The flatter steering head angle of the PX body should lead to significantly better straight-line stability and also offer the possibility of lowering the Cosa Superlow fork again without the fender hitting the frame or cascade. The GS rear, on the other hand, is significantly shorter compared to the PX or Sprint models, which gives the PS 240 a "smallframe" look. The 4-piston radial brake in conjunction with a floating Stage 6 brake disc and the Magura radial brake pump with twelve mm pistons ensure deceleration. Thanks to the high-quality and fully adjustable shock absorbers at the front and rear, new worlds should open up to the dedicated Vespa pilot.
