New Vespa VX 125-Launched Lately

The Italian two wheeler manufacturer has launched a premium scooter Vespa VX which can be seen as an upgrade to the existing LX model. With this launch, Piaggio Bikes have increased its presence in India with the two scooter models. This new model will be the highest priced scooter in the Indian market. The official Piaggio Vespa VX 125 price has been announced to be INR 71,380 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) which is roughly 4k more than the LX variant. Even with this high price tag, the company is upbeat on expected sales. While the LX model has sold over 52,000 units since its launch last year, Piaggio Vespa VX 125 is expected to nurture a trend towards premium scooters with high end features. Mr. Ravi Chopra, the Managing Director of the Indian arm of the Italian firm has hinted at another product launch before the year is out.

Buyers of the new model will get additional premium features but the power and performance of the vehicle will remain the same as there have been no changes in that area. The chief Piaggio Vespa VX 125 features which vary from the ongoing model are the tubeless tyres, disc brakes and seat covers. The Nylogrip tyres which were offered in the previous model have been replaced with new MRF Zapper tubeless tyres. The scooter now gets a ventilated disc brake with 200mm dia at the front. The single shell full metal body which is a Vespa signature has been retained in the new model too.  In an attempt to impress the youth brigade, the traditional black seats have given way to beige coloured art leather seats. This upholstery will be available together only with the Rossa dragon and Midnight blue body colours.

The Piaggio Vespa VX 125 pictures show generous dashes of chrome all over the vehicle’s body which gives it a rich look. The black display dials on the silver coloured hexagon instrument panel add to the scooter’s trendy looks. The saddle handle bar for the pillion rider has also been raised and finished in chrome. The new model will be available in two additional colours, vibrant rossa and metallic green taking the total colour options to eight. The scooter will derive its power from the same 125 cc, 3 valve single cylinder engine which has been used in the older model. This four stroke engine can produce a power of 10PS and can output a top torque of 10.6Nm. The continuously variable transmission which is seen in all vespa models are in use in the new model too and its old version Piaggio Vespa LX 125 Is Doing An Excellent Business In The Indian Market.
