The new Pinasco crankcase for the Vespa Small frame is available in two versions, the Slave Naked for rotary induction, and the Slave 8X for reed valve induction featuring an eight petal reed block.

Both versions utilise an 88mm diameter Pinasco crankshaft, and feature larger bearing seats, and reinforcement on critical stress areas.

Pinasco has also introduced a system to allow the gear cluster to be changed without removing the engine from the frame, and only having to remove the clutch assembly to access the removal of the gear cluster. This has been achieved by developing the Removable Gear System to allow racers to easily swap out ratios in the paddock with the minimum of fuss.
