Vespa has launched its limited-run 75th edition scooters at Rs 1.26 lakh (125) and Rs 1.39 lakh (150). All prices, ex-showroom Pune.
As their names suggest, these limited-edition scooters celebrate Vespa’s 75th anniversary. The main highlight is the unique ‘Glossy Metallic Giallo’ colour, which is accompanied by ‘dark smoke grey’ seats. The scooters also come with a ‘welcome kit’ that includes a bag with collectible postcards and a vintage Vespa sign.
Other styling highlights include the number 75 decals on the side panels, front fender and glovebox. The scooter also features a retractable chrome rack that’s designed to look like the spare wheel carrier from older Vespa models. It also features a machined finish on its wheels and a windscreen.
Like other current Vespa models, the 75th edition is available with 125cc and 150cc engine options. The 125cc version is expected to make 9.93hp at 7,500rpm and 9.6Nm at 5,500rpm, while the higher-capacity model is expected to make 10.4hp at 7,600rpm and 10.6Nm of torque at 5,500rpm.
Braking is handled by a 200mm disc up front and a 140mm drum at the rear. While the 150 gets ABS, the 125 makes do with CBS.
