Italian two wheeler manufacturer Piaggio cut down the price of the Vespa LX 125 to Rs.59,996 (ex-showroom New Delhi). Earlier the scooter was tagged an unbearable price of Rs.67,700 (ex-showroom New Delhi). That means a reduction of almost Rs. 7000. Vespa notified that the reason for the cut down of Vespa pricing was the increased number of unit production and localization process, and wanted to share with their valuable customers.
Making its third entry to India, Piaggio unveiled the classic scooter, Vespa LX 125 at the New Delhi Auto Expo, in January 2012. And no longer, the consortium launched the scooter in the same month. One thing was very clear, that the Vespa grabbed innumerable attention everywhere. Unfortunately, its heavy price tag stood as a big barrier to carry on that fame achieved. It resulted the scooter to be spotted in the premium scooter segment.
The Italian comes with a 125 cc, 4 Stroke, 3 Valve, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled engine. The powerful engine is further powered by a maximum power of 10.06 PS @ 7500 RPM and a gorgeous torque of 10.6 Nm @ 6000 RPM. Its Continuous Variable Transmission makes the city drive much easier. Piaggio scooters are known for their traditional beauty. The Vespa LX 125 is also no different. The eyeball staring shades mated with silver finish provide a unique identity to the scooter.
Thanks for the torching multi-focal headlamp with 35w halogen. It whitens even the darkest night. To ensure a better drive, Piaggio has installed a front suspension, arm with coil spring and dual effect shock absorber and a rear suspension, coil spring and dual effect shock absorber.
The recipe behind the beauty and the strength of the Vespa LX 125 is its frame, monocoque steel high rigidity structure. It helps to mould out stunning shape and uncompromisable strength to the machine. Moreover, Piaggio offers a big 8 litre fuel tank, which is hardly found in Indian scooters.
Still, Piaggio failed to weld up certain necessary facilities at this price tag. The major drawback of the Vespa LX 125 is the fact that the scooter looks so tiny comparing its rivals. It would be hardly drivable for a tall person and a fat guy. Additionally, the scooter misses a front disc brake which becomes a must for this pricing. Also Piaggio doesn't provide tubeless tyres.
However, Piaggio managed to find 25,000 customers since the launch of the Vespa LX 125. Hopefully, with a refreshed price tag, the 47 Vespa stores would be filled with more customers.
