Vespa is the brand name for the Italian scooter produced by Piaggio and the name was derived from wasp of Italian.  Vespa has greatly grown since its introduction as a single motor scooter produced by Piaggio in 1946. Now it has a whole line of scooters and is among the 7 companies owned by Piaggio & Co. S.p.A. The Vespa brand of scooters have been offered with unique body styling which off comprehensive protection for the engine, prominent front structure providing wind protection and the flat floorboard offering foot protection to drivers. Piaggio engineers Vittorio Casini and Renzo Spolti designed the MP5 with full body enclosure covering the Drivetrain. The model had a tall central section to straddle. The design was not acceptable to Enrico Piaggio and he summoned aeronautical engineers to redesign it. The new prototype the MP6 had its engine mounted at the side of the rear wheel. Direct transmission drove the wheel and eliminated dirt and oil and the drive chain. It looked like a wasp and was approved by Piaggio for production under the name Vespa.
