Italian two-wheeler manufacturer, Piaggio India has just unveiled a new variant of its only two wheeler offering in the Indian two wheeler market, the Vespa VX125 automatic scooter. Although the scooter looks the same at first glimpse, it comes equipped with the new set of features on that reflects what’s available on the international-spec Vespa LX125.
Compared to the LX125, the VX125 gets two new colour option, Bright Pink and Turquoise Green. On the other hand, the company has withdrawn the black and maroon colour options for the Vespa, having not found much favour with customers. Other changes include a longer pillion grab rail, MRF NyloGrip Zapper tubeless tyres and a much needed 200mm front disc brake.
Futhermore, the VX also gets revised instruments with a black dial and customers have the option of choosing a beige-coloured seat. No mechanical changes are incorporated on the Vespa through the VX125 variant. A monocoque chassis and single-sided suspension are the other bits carried over.
In India, the new variant of Vespa VX125 will sit above the LX125 model in terms of price and positioning. While prices are yet to be announced, the latest Vespa VX125 will be available in dealers across the nation by 20th June 2013, at no more than a slight premium over the LX125 which we expect to be around Rs. 2500.
Refresher – The Vespa 125 VX is powered by a same 125cc engine which produces 10.06 PS of power @ 7500 RPM and 10.06 NM of torque @ 6000 RPM. It will take you around 10 seconds to reach 60kmph from standstill and touches a top speed of 90kmph. As far as mileage is concerned, it will give you around 40-42 kmpl in city conditions which will increase on long runs.
