Vespa VXL 125 Highlights
28 December 2018: Vespa 125cc scooters in India have been updated with CBS (combined braking system). Starting April 2019, it will be mandatory for all two-wheelers sold in India below 125cc scooters to be equipped with CBS. The addition of CBS has resulted in a price hike of Rs 2,200 to Rs 3,700. Apart from the addition of CBS, no mechanical or cosmetic changes have been done on the 125cc scooters.
Vespas have for long signified stylish commuting and the VXL 125 further cements this image with a new range of updates for 2019. The most prominent among these updates is a new colour range, which now includes Azzuro Provenza, Yellow, Matt Black, White, Red and Maze Grey. The retro-styled scooter, however, is not all about looks as borne out by its extensive feature list. Chief among them is the smartphone connect feature whereby you can connect your smartphone to the scooter and retrieve a host of information that includes service history and last-parked location.
The VXL 125 is powered by a 125cc air-cooled engine that churns out 10.06 PS of power and 10.6 Nm of torque. This power is transferred to the rear wheel via a belt drive and an automatic CVT transmission, which makes the VXL 125 a joy to ride in the city. Braking duties are handled by a 200mm disc at the front wheel and a 140mm drum at the rear wheel. Speaking of wheels, the VXL 125 runs an 11-inch alloy at the front and a 10-inch alloy at the rear. Both wheels are shod with tubeless tyres, with the rear tyre being a 120-section for enhanced grip. The front end of the VXL 125 is suspended by a single sidearm front suspension while the rear sports a hydraulic shock absorber.
The VXL 125 sits in a category of its own and has no direct competitors except the Aprilia SR125. That is partly because this 125cc scooter from Vespa sports a premium pricing of Rs 74,884 (ex-showroom Delhi). A high price notwithstanding, the Vespa VXL 125 is a great option if you are looking for a nimble, powerful and stylish option to putter around in town.

Piaggio India recently launched the newest iteration of its premium commuter offering, the VXL 125. As implied by its name, the scooter is powered by a 125cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. Vespa has built the VXL 125 around a monocoque chassis and offers full steel body construction. Appearance wise, the scooter remains more or less the same save for additional colour options. Further helping the VXL 125 stand out from the crowd are features like alloy wheels, fatter tyres, a contoured seat and a semi-digital instrument console.
Design and Features
The design of the VXL 125 stays faithful to its retro roots with a disc-shaped lamp and overall body proportions that are very reminiscent of the Vespas of yore. The scooter runs on stylish five-spoke alloy wheels that sport a satin finish. The VXL 125 uses a monocoque full-steel body and is 1770 mm in length, 690 mm in width and 1140 mm in height. Its 1290 mm wheelbase ensures greater stability on most road surfaces.
Braking and Handling
The VXL 125 is a quick scooter and bringing it to a halt are a very effective set of brakes at either end. Sitting at the front is a 200mm ventilated disc while stopping the rear wheel is a 140mm drum unit. Aiding the braking characteristics of the scooter are a 110-section tyre at the front and a 120-section tyre at the rear.
The handling of the VXL 125 is reinforced by an anti-dive suspension at the front and a hydraulic shock absorber unit at the rear. This suspension setup provides the VXL 125 with excellent ride and stability under different conditions.
Safety and Features
The Vespa VXL 125 scores well when it comes to safety thanks to the front disc-back drum braking combo it offers. The brakes are powerful and bring the scooter to a smooth and unharried halt. The VXL 125 also runs on tubeless tyres, which minimise air leakage in the event of a puncture and prevent any mishaps. Vespa has further built this scooter with an aircraft-derived front suspension that works to minimise dive under hard braking. Together with the hydraulic rear suspension, this makes the VXL 125 not only a joy to ride but also quite safe
