Piaggio India has launched the celebratory 75th Edition Vespa scooters in India. As before, there are two engine options to choose from: 125cc and 150cc. The former priced at Rs 1,25,996 and the latter at Rs 1,39,090 (ex-showroom). At this price, the 125cc and 150cc 75th editions are Rs 13,000 costlier than their standard VXL 125 and VXL 150 counterparts.
Interested customers can book either of the scooters for a token amount of Rs 5,000 from their nearest Vespa dealership.
Coming to the scooters, as the name suggests, the special edition scooters celebrate 75 years of the Vespa brand. And to do so, Piaggio has draped the scooters in a glossy metallic Giallo colour with the number ‘75’ on the bodywork. Along with this, you get silver alloy wheels and a flyscreen that add a pinch of swagger to the package.
Piaggio has also thrown in a special seat with a dark grey Nubuck leather cover and a premium round bag finished in the same material. The bag can be easily mounted on the rear luggage rack and comes with a special welcome kit inside.
Cosmetic changes aside, these scooters are expected to remain mechanically unchanged. If so, the 125cc engine (from the VXL 125) will belt out 9.92PS and 9.60Nm while the 150cc motor (from the VXL 150) would produce 10.47PS and 10.6Nm. An official confirmation is awaited from Piaggio.
Features on the scooters consist of a semi-digital instrument cluster, LED lights, USB charger, a boot lamp, a flyscreen, and chrome inserts throughout. Both the 125cc and the 150cc variants get a disc brake up front. Additionally, the 125cc gets CBS while the 150cc gets a single-channel ABS, as standard.
In the market, the special edition Vespas take on the premium scooter segment comprising the Aprilia SXR 125 and the SXR 160, both of which undercut the 125cc and the 150cc variant by about Rs 10,000, respectively and offer better features too.
