Well they are looking sporty with alloys , neat design and disc brakes but all the models seem to have the traditional headlamp design!

I believe Vespa will have a strong time contrary to established players. They have to convey innovative goods with appealing charge and a good trading team.

Piaggio will launch Vespa scooters at 2012 Auto Expo. Piaggio will manufacture Vespa 125LX at the Baramati facility in Maharashtra, and the scooter will go on sale by March this year.

Vespa LX125 is powered by a 125cc engine producing 10.5PS and 9.7Nm of torque, making it one of the most powerful scooters in India. The scooter will also have an automatic CVT gearbox and an optional front disc brake.

Italian manufacturer will produce and retail the 125cc automatic scooter in India, from March 2012.

Update - Piaggio will roll out Vespa in March 2012. It will be positioned as a premium brand and company is opening up exclusive dealerships too.

Re: Vespa Scooters Coming To India - Again?

Cool looking scooters with fantastic heritage and a romance that only Italian machines have. But I have heard a lot of people commenting that "oh, it looks like an old Bajaj made of plastic, who will buy this?"; "man, this is too girls for my taste", etc.

I just hope this iconic brand does not become a victim of typical Indian narrow-minded psyche [frustration].

Re: Vespa Scooters Coming To India - Again?

Eagerly waiting for the Vespa. Was instantly sold to it when I see the photos of it featured in the recent Autoexpo.
Any info about it dealership network and any pre-launch roadshows/offers ?
