Vespa Falls Into the Gap for the Holidays

Gap and Vespa have partnered to design the 2007 Limited Edition Vespa LX 50 in a custom "Crazy Stripe" design by Gap.

The collaboration is a first for Gap and brings together two brands known for classic style, Vespa as a symbol of Italian style and elegance and Gap, known for casual American design.

"Our partnership with Vespa presented the perfect opportunity to surprise our customers with a special, unexpected gift idea for this special time of year," says Marka Hansen, president, Gap North America.

This 2007 Limited Edition Vespa LX 50 in the Crazy Stripe design represents a new spin on the classic Vespa scooter and continues to incorporate the core values of Vespa — eco-friendly engineering, passion, individualism, and integrity — in a stylish mode of transportation.

Beginning Nov. 8, details on how to buy the scooter will be available exclusively online. The 2007 Limited Edition Vespa LX 50 retails for $5,999 and will be available while supplies last or by special order until Dec. 23, 2007.

Holiday shoppers in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Las Vegas will have the opportunity to check out the 2007 Limited Edition Vespa LX 50 on display in select Gap stores from Nov. 15 to Dec. 3.
