This is the reason Piaggio Vespa LX 125 is an immortal. It has come back to India after a long hiatus. For once, Vespa was a household name. Those who know still cannot get the scoot out of their minds. Such were the people who were rejoiced the most when Piaggio Vespa LX 125 was unveiled at the 11th Indian Auto Expo 2012. The lifestyle scooter has been altered for country’s current market conditions and would target the young generation. However, more than being a utility vehicle, it is a fashion icon meant to attract all ages and all the genders. Those who remember it from the age old times, would remember it with the name Bajaj. Then it cme with LML, and now it comes with the wholly owned by the Italian major Piaggio Group, Piaggio Vehicles Pvt. Ltd.. Manufactured locally by the Italian two wheeler manufacturer, Piaggio Vespa LX 125 came to the Indian showrooms as and when was promised by the company, April end of 2012. The lifestyle scooter has a heart of 4-stroke, 125cc automatic transmission (CVT) engine that produces 10.06 PS and 10.6 Nm of maximum power and torque, respectively.
However, it is just one look thrown towards this scoot and you forget all the technical specifications. The stylized “Vespa” tag in chrome, the rich chrome looks, with chrome rear view mirrors, chrome pillion rider hold, dials getting sportier with chrome linings, high defined paint, Italian designs, alloy wheels, rounded crystal head lights and what not! The scooter has got it all to be a head turner on the road. As for the comeback, the Italian brand found it to be the most apt time to relaunch itself as currently India is watching a rise in demand of scooters and there is as yet now premium segment scooter. With Vespa already being the best selling scooter of Europe, with owning names like Aprilia, Derbi, Moto Guzzi, Gilera and Scarabeo, Vespa surely has high hopes from the Indian market too, keeping in mind is the fact that we have always been in love with the name, Vespa! By the end of 2013, Piaggio plans to have an annual sales number reaching 3 lakhs. Now that is something huge, one country, Rs. 350 crore of investment, 35 cities, 50 showrooms, 3 lakh units, 1.5 years! Massive. With Vespa, the wasp, still giving us a high, Piaggio has already come out with announcement of Piaggio Fly, another two wheeler, soon to be launched in India. There are still some waiting to see India from Vespa's immense portfolio.

But still, quite a few things are still the same. Relations survive any kind of changes happening, what was close to us then is close to us now. Since it has survived all the change in time, such things have now become dearer to us. There was, family, there is family, there was Pink Floyd music, there is Pink Floyd music, there was Audrey Hepburn, she lives still, there was VW Beetle, we still run the VW Beetle, there was Vespa, there IS Vespa! The CLASSIC!
Back in the scenario recently, Vespa has swamped the hearts yet again. The brand has come back to us recently, totally tailor made once again. The segment that Piaggio Vespa LX 125 has been launched was uptil now the most empty slot. The premium segment. This scoot has earned it name as a fashion icon this time around.

The exteriors of the lifestyle scooter are very appealing, though has some minor similarities with Bajaj scooter. Company makes nominal changes to front fascia of the scooter, in order to offer the same retro and attractive looks, what together you can call classic. Piaggio Vespa LX 125 has a kerb weight of 114 kg and fuel tank capacity of 8 liters. The alloy wheels and tubeless tyres provide a robust and sporty look to it.
Piaggio Vespa Designing
The overall dimension given to the scooter are to suit its cute and retro looks. It sure is impressive. The scooter stands 1770 mm long, 690 mm wide and 1140 mm tall. The tank capacity is 8 liters, with the dry weight being 114 kilograms. Wheel base has been measured up to 1290 mm, along with a decent ground clearance of 155 mm..
Piaggio Vespa LX 125 comes equipped with alloy wheels, 3 spoke, logo branded, which offers a stylish and sporty look to the lifestyle scooter. Both the wheels measure up to 90/100-10 53J.
The appearance of Piaggio Vespa LX 125 is what makes it an out and out winner. Try riding it once and you feel different from all the other scoots running on the road. The looks of the pretty two wheeler places it in the lifestyle segment. Up front, the first thing you notice is the rounded head lights, well, it must have been no trouble to the manufacturer with such a design, but it lends such a pretty look to the scooter. Such shapely front lights are not to be found in the present day scooter, but Vespa. The overall design very much taken from the original Indian Vespa scooter, this traditional design has been merged with new technologies. Steel frame that bears the monocoque, with the neat curves … the hottest mix of retro with the present day. The sophisticated feel of the scooter has been enhanced by the touches of chrome on the front, the chrome logo, the chrome head lights, chrome handle bar ends, chrome mud guard finish, enough chrome for that jazzy feel.
The rear is neat and clean. Quite a retro look. Neatly placed lights and the Vespa logo. On to the sides on the scooter, the most visible thing is the logo Vespa in chrome, and then the sides are totally clean. The smoothness flows all over the scooter, the step-in area too flows smoothly. There are no corners given on the step-in area. Foot board gets beautified with the black strips. The glove box has been beautifully integrated in the flow of the steel body. The clutter free instrument cluster has been given a white face, and has been embedded with a speedometer, a digital clock (whoaa!), and fuel gauge. Other than these, there are light indicators perched on the top of the instrument cluster. Down on to the side, the exhaust looks cute made of chrome. You might feel an overdose of the logo when you see it on the tyre. However, it still would not feel odd since it has been well merged with the three spoke alloy wheels..
The riding position in this scoot is one of the best. The seat standing at a height of 770 mm from the ground, suitable enough for low height people too. The wide and log seat of this lifestyle scooter gives a cocoon of comfort to both the rider and the pillion person. There is enough storage space on the scooter, in the front and under the seat. The self start option makes it hassle free from the very beginning, however, when stuck, kick start option too can be used. Easily mountable central stand wins. With all the required information of the scooter on the the instrument cluster, an add on feature is a digital clock.
Piaggio Vespa Engine And Performance
Piaggio Vespa LX 125 is packed with a powerful 4-stroke, 125cc, three valve head engine with automatic transmission gearbox system. The only model of Vespa LX offers an extraordinary fuel efficiency of 60 kilometer per liter..
Before it was launched, the company made it clear that this is not a scooter to race around on, it is totally premium segment ride. Expecting too high of this scooter will not do justice to it. Do not look at it with those power hungry eyes and ask for high performance! Piaggio Vespa LX 125 is a good option in scooter segment. It stays out of any competition from the regular scooters running on Indian roads. With an engine capacity of 124cc of displacement, this scooter has been gifted a single cylinder, 4 stroke, air cooled leader engine with the injection system being electronic against the uptil now reported fuel injection system. Stuffed with automatic gears that support the scooter's engine to pump up peak power of 10.06 PS at a high RPM of 7500, along with torque being 10.6 Nm at 6000 RPM. Though the scooter is not supposed to give you a high performance, but it well manages to keep the riders smiling on this front..
Just beneath the storage box under the seat is the heart of the scooter. With retro type Vespa look, the all new LX 125 has 4-stroke 125 cc automatic transmission (CVT) engine. This engine configuration of Vespa LX 125 makes it the first scooter in India to house a 3-valve engine head, positioning it advanced technologically, compared to other competitors in Indian two-wheeler segments. The engine of the scooter churns out 10.06 PS of power at 7500 RPM and 10.6 Nm of high torque at 6000 RPM. With such an engine, and an 8 liter tank, all that you have to do is get it full for once and then forget all about it, since with a mileage as strong as 60 kilometer per hour, you would not stop for anything lower than 400-450 kilometers.
