Vespa 946 to be launched in India by end of the year

The Vespa 946 scooter which was launched internationally earlier this year is India bound.

The 946 packs in modern elements without eschewing the retro scooter styling. The scooter looks classy and the attentional to detail is simply stunning!

Some of the striking features are the floating pillion seat and digital instrument console. The overall shape of the scooter remains true to the original design of the MP6 Vespa prototype. The name 946 comes from Vespa’s year of production commencement (1946).

The Vespa 946 is filled up to the brim with technology. The automatic scooter is powered by a 3V fuel injected 125cc single cylinder engine. And that is not all, the sexy scooter offers ABS, traction control, disc brakes at both front and rear and meaty tires.

The 946 has to be ordered online and one can chose to customize his/her scooter with various accessories. We also hear that Vespa can engrave the customer’s name, his birthday or the date of manufacturing on the scooter! Black and white will be the only color options.

The craftsmanship, technology and exclusivity doesn’t come cheap. The Vespa 946 is a collector’s item and maybe priced at over 2 lakh rupees in India!

Wow. Looks like vespa is taking its brand name in India to a whole new level. The scorer looks sexy & with all those safety features, its mouth watering but 2 lakh, seriously?
Vespa might need to offer a whole lot more to justify the price tag. Also the 125cc engine should be replaced by a more powerful version. [evil]

Piaggio Vespa S launched in India

The Vespa S 125 will be the third offering from the company after the Vespa LX 125 and its richer variant the VX 125. The Sport model shares almost every component with the Vespa LX and VX models.

It is powered by the same 125 cc 4-stroke 3-valve engine used on the the other models which produces 10 PS @ 7,500 rpm and a torque figure of 10.6Nm @ 6,000 rpm.

The alloy wheels on the Vespa S have been powder coated in black and are wrapped in tubeless tires. The rear proudly displays the Vespa S badge while the S125 and Vespa monograms are stuck on the left and right engine covers respectively.

Other than the visual differences, the Vespa S gets a new instrument cluster which sports an analogue speedometer, fuel gauge and a digital clock. While the Vespa LX /VX had a closed glove box, the S has two exposed slots on the front apron along with a hook for carrying bags. The company claims that the seat has also been improved for added comfort and gets contrasting white piping to enhance the looks.

The Vespa S will be available in four body colours including the new Orange and Matte Black shades along with the White and Red options.
