When Piaggio first announced price of Vespa at Rs. 66,000 ex-showroom, I had a question in my mind that how Piaggio will utilize its 15,000 per month plant capacity and why company is aiming to double it next year. However, there are certain reports which suggest that Piaggio may launch Fly 125 by Diwali, which supports company’s installed capacity utilization. According to the reports Piaggio is planning to launch Fly 125 scooter at a price of around Rs. 50,000 by Diwali to boost volumes.

Fly 125 is already marketed in the international market. Fly 125 is a very light and compact scooter. It comes with 124cc single cylinder 2-valve, air cooled LEADER engine which produces maximum power of 10.5 bhp and maximum torque of 10Nm. It comes with automatic CVT transmission. It will have class leading fuel efficiency for Indian version. It comes with rigid steel tube frame which ensures safe and precise riding.

It comes with telescopic hydraulic shock absorber for front suspension while the rear suspension has twin hydraulic shock absorbers with preload adjuster. It comes with 12 inch wheels and tubeless tyres. It has 200 mm disc brake (we may find drum brake on Indian version) at front while the rear has 140mm drum brake. It has fuel tank of 7.5 liters which means less fuel station visit. It also offers plenty of under seat storage. It also has front glove box for carrying your accessories. Apart from this Piaggio offers 33 liter top box (optional) for carrying extra luggage. The instrument panel comes with clock and calendar.

At the price of Rs. 66,000, Vespa scooter is at least 40-50% expensive compared to the competition. Due to its high price, there are very few takers of this scooter in India despite the mileage and looks advantage over the competition. If reports are correct than Fly 125 will definitely bring huge volumes as Piaggio is a pioneer company in scooter and Fly 125 will have an advantage of better fuel economy, looks, advanced technology and competitive price.

The Vespa Fly will be badged as the Piaggio Fly. The focus of Piaggio to boost the sales of the Vespa LX125 right now. They have worked on a strategy to cut down the price of the Vespa LX 125 by Rs. 9000 to 10,000 and launch an upgraded version with disc brakes and some more refinements at the present OTR price of Rs. 82,000/-

Once this is accomplished the Fly will roll out through the same dealership network badged as the Piaggio Fly pegged competitively against the Honda's, Suzuki's, Yamaha's, TVS and Mahindra's.

It would be offered with an option of disc brakes as well.
