Default Vespa Douglas models

"Rod" model 1951-5
"Rod" is retro term referring to gear change mechanism - scooter was marketed as just "Vespa 125" The spec was basically that of the Piaggio 1949 model which had just been replaced. The headlight on British production was moved to the leg shields in deference to local lighting regulations.






"G" model 1953-54
The previous model with a cable gear change



GL2 1954-55
Up-to-date twin transfer port engine installed in the by-now-archaic 1949 style chassis





42L2 1955-56
Parity with Piaggio production at last with newer style chassis and front damper. The headlight was moved to the handlebars



92L2 1956-59
Modifications to the 42L2 mirrored those of Piaggio with a larger fuel tank and other detail differences



102L2 1957
The 92l2 with a 150cc engine imported from Piaggio. Just a handful were made.



152L2 1959-6
A completely new model introduced about a year after Piaggio. The rear of the chassis was constructed in two halves with a seam up the middle, and the engine bearer was now integral with the crankcase. When demand outstripped supply, a quantity of the equivalent Piaggio model (the VNA) were imported.



Sportique 1961-65
Douglas stopped producing 125cc Vespas and built instead a version of the current Piaggio 150cc model - the VBB. In an attempt to halt declining sales, various "special editions" with accessories as standard were produced. 1962 saw the Supreme in silver and the Grand Luxe in gold. 1n 1965, just before production of Vespas ended, came the Grand Tourer in metallic maroon




232L2 1962
One of the most obscure Vespas, this 125cc model was produced in very small numbers in 1962.

"Rod" μοντέλο 1951-5
"Rod" σημαινει ο όρος ρετρό, αναφορές σε εργαλεία μηχανισμό αλλαγής - scooter ήταν στο εμπόριο ως απλώς "Vespa 125" .Ηταν ουσιαστικά εκείνο το μοντελο της Piaggio το ετος 1949 που μόλις είχε αντικατασταθεί. Του προβολέα για το βρετανικό παραγωγή μεταφέρθηκε στην ασπίδες πόδι από σεβασμό προς τους τοπικούς κανονισμούς φωτισμού.






"G" μοντέλο 1953-54
Το προηγούμενο μοντέλο με μια αλλαγή στο καλώδιο ταχυτήτων




GL2 1954-55
Αναβαθμιση του κινητηρα μεταβίβασης εγκαταστημενο στο μεχρι τοτε σασι αρχαϊκού στυλ του 1949






42L2 1955-56
Ισοτιμία με την παραγωγή της Piaggio.Σασι με νεότερο στυλ και με καλυτερη μπροστινη απόσβεση.Ο προβολέας μεταφέρθηκε στο τιμόνι



92L2 1956-59
Οι τροποποιήσεις της 42L2 αντικατοπτρίζονται με εκείνες της Piaggio, με μεγαλύτερη δεξαμενή καυσίμων και άλλων διαφόρων λεπτομερειών



102L2 1957
Η 92l2 με κινητήρα 150cc που εισάγονται από την Piaggio. Πολυ μικρος αριθμος παραγωγης.



152L2 1959-6
Η Piaggio εισηγαγε ενα εντελώς νέο μοντέλο, περίπου ένα χρόνο μετά. Το πίσω μέρος του σασί κατασκευάστηκε σε δύο ίσα μέρη με μια ραφή επάνω στη μέση, και τον κομιστή του κινητήρα να είναι πλέον αναπόσπαστος με το στροφαλοθάλαμο. Όταν η ζήτηση ξεπέρασε της προσφοράς, η ποσότητα των ισοδύναμων μοντέλων της Piaggio (τα VNA) ειχαν εισαχθεί.



Sportique 1961-65
Η Douglas σταμάτησε να παράγει 125cc Vespas και χτίστηκε (μάλλον) μια έκδοση της τρέχουσας Piaggio 150cc μοντέλο - το VBB. Σε μια προσπάθεια να σταματήσει τη μειωση των πωλησεων,παρήχθησαν διάφορες "ειδικές εκδόσεις" με εξαρτήματα ως πρότυπα .Το 1962 είδαμε το Supreme σε ασήμι και το Grand Luxe σε χρυσό. Τον Ιανουαριο του 1965 λίγο πριν τελειωσει η παραγωγη της Vespa, ήρθε το Grand Tourer σε μεταλλικo καφέ.




232L2 1962
Μία από τις πιο σκοτεινές Vespa, σε 125cc ηταν ενα μοντέλο που παρηχθηκε σε πολύ μικρούς αριθμούς (το 1962)
