About Us



Route Vespa’s online Vespa parts store accommodates the unique taste and style of each Vespa enthusiast. The associated lifestyle attracts not only those who ride the Vespa scooters, but also those wishing to have a part in this way of life. At Route Vespa, we say that it is not a style, but a lifestyle

Where it started

Route Vespa started with 4 friends admiring the old Italian classics. Their passion for restoring old things and sharing adventures motivated them to acquire two Vespas to completely restore – so their journey started. Often struggling to find affordable quality parts, they had to look abroad and face the challenges of high shipping costs and customs clearing fees.  As time passed they became experts in the supply of Vespa parts and Route Vespa was kickstarted in 2014.  Since then, Route Vespa has done a number of Vespa rebuilds and plenty of bulk imports that enabled them to understand the process requirements of importing, especially lowering purchase price and shipping cost by quantity optimization between supply from abroad and South African demand.
