A few weeks back, we had reported a cut price variant of the Vespa, based on a tweet via Overdrive magazine. Seems like the news wasn’t true after all.
In an official statement, Piaggio India have clearly stated that no fiber body, or cut price variant of the LX125 will be introduced.
Piaggio Vehicles Private Limited (PVPL), in an official communication, have stated that –
“Piaggio set out to create the luxury segment with the launch of the Vespa LX 125 in India in April 2012. The information on Vespa unveiling a fibre body variant and reducing price to Rs 50,000/- is untrue.”
Any speculation on the Italian scootermaker’s plan to come up with cheaper, or fiber body variants, thus, should be rendered as untrue.
