Vespa is an Italian brand of scooter manufactured by Piaggio.
Originally a single motor scooter manufactured in 1946 to address traveling on the war-torn roads of post-World War II Italy, the Vespa model extended into a full line of scooters and had become its own brand by the 1970's.
- "Vespa" means "wasp" in Italian.
- The Purse Thief encountered by Centorea and Kimihito claim that his vespa is a "Model 36", however, no such model exists by that name. Visually, his vespa resembles the 1963, VBB 150 model.
