Re: Vespa Scooters Coming To India - Again?

Oh yes. I am so waiting for this one. A cool runabout for the mundane chores for the wife. I still do prefer my cycle for that.

And I will take yellow please.

Official site: Piaggio

Though they have no details of the vehicles to be launched in India or when. Mostly to do with getting dealerships in place first.

The person heading the show is a well known person in the automotive scene in India. Hopping they target these machines well. Considering they have some real tough competition from the Honda stable.

What they would run on is design, design and design. Market it accordingly and create a segment that wants more then the plain Jane 100 milion in number Honda's.

Re: Vespa Scooters Coming To India - Again?

Update. Vespa LX125 launched in Bombay. Ex-showroom price Rs. 66661/-. At this price, I am sure Vespa is looking at targeting an image conscious niche market. At such a price the Vespa LX125 would never be able to challenge the current established players like Honda and Suzuki.

So friends,what do we have to say on this? Hit or Flop?

Moderators: Kindly edit the thread title to Now Launched.

Re: Vespa Scooters Coming To India - Again?

Guys, do you have any information about sale & service infrastructure of Vespa. I mean will they built entirely new set up or some JV is being worked out.

At this price point, Vespa should be targeting a more niche than niche segment. Yet to figure out the prospective buyer type [confused]

Re: Vespa Scooters Coming To India - Again?

I think its priced a bit high, Need to see how it fairs in the handling and performance departments. If its better than the rest of the competition, Then maybe the price will be justified. Heard the brakes are drums and aren't that great.

i still sometimes ride my fathers vespa 150 with original piagio engine. its 1970 model but apart from being bumpy because the suspenions are not available its still is powerful and fuel efficient . just wanted to add to the reputation of the vespa for those who are close to taking a call soon on buying a scooter.

Re: Vespa Scooters Coming To India - Again?

66,000/-!!!! means on road around 75,000/- makes it the super-premium scooter. personally, Its looks pretty good for me, completely different style, 'mix and match' of vintage and funky style. feels like 'WV beetle'. As a veteran scooter maker, we don't need to worry about Piaggio. Only thing to worry is the service network.

Let us wait and see how the market is responding to this product.
