Shutting down all anticipations and rumours, the Italian scooter manufacturer, Vespa's Indian subsidiary firm, Vespa India unveiled the Vespa VX 125. The all new Vespa is an updraded version of the exsisting and only model of Vespa in India, the Vespa LX 125. Still, the official price of the scooter is yet to come out. The official price tag is expected to be revealed on 20th June, 2013.
The Vespa VX 125 is delivered with additional features such as 200mm front disc, which badly lacks in its sibling, a retouched instrument panel to easily notice things at a glance, beige seat option, that makes the scooter more attractive, MRF Zapper tubeless tyres to ensure maximum stability and manoeuvrability, and an attractive grab rail to hold hands securely. Above all, the all new scooter is blessed with stunning two new shades- Metallic Green and Pink. The scooter is expected to reach in Vespa stores across the country by the end of this month.
Except the above mentioned added features, it's the same Vespa LX 125. That means the firm hasn't gone to any technical specification modification or any engine tuning. The Vespa VX 125 is wedded with the same 4 Stroke, 3 Valve, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled engine used in the Vespa LX 125. The scooter produces a maximum power of 10.06 PS @ 7500 RPM and a maximum torque of 10.6 Nm @ 6000 RPM. Its engine is coupled with Continuous Variable Transmission to better and simplifying commuting.
Although the bike looks tiny, it is very comfortable to ride on it compared to the other machines in its class. Installed with arm with coil spring and dual effect shock absorber at front, and coil spring and dual effect shock absorber at rear, the suspension tags a cool atmosphere to the riders. The presence of front disc brake is always advantage to any vehicle. Now the all new Vespa VX 125 carries the same. It courageously allows the rider to pick up the scooter to the top speed.
When the Vespa LX 125 was unveiled in 2012, the scooter was positioned as the premium scooter of the country. Of course, the huge price tag of the LX 125 worked a lot to get tagged the premium brand name. The same price tag played as villain as well and the firm couldn't meet the targeted units. Then the company was forced to cut down the pricing. As the Italian firms rolls out the new version, exception of the firm is definitely high on the scooter. If the firm doesn't tag a reasonable pricing, it would be even harder to the company to survive. Remember, it is the third time Vespa is entering the Indian soil.
