While Piaggio India remained tight-lipped about the upcoming launches, recent spy images confirm that the event will witnesses the unveiling of the two updated Vespa scooters – the Vespa SXL and the Vespa VXL. The updates, however, would remain cosmetic.
The spy images, reported by the peeps at BikeWale, indicate that the upcoming Vespa SXL will receive new colour options, a digital instrument cluster, five-spoke alloy wheels and bigger profile tyres. The Vespa VXL, on the other hand, will also be jeweled up by a new instrument cluster, new five-spoke alloy wheels and tyres. But that’s about all the changes that these upcoming motorcycles will receive.
At the heart of these retro-style scooters will be the same 125cc single-cylinder engine capable of delivering 10 bhp of power and 10.6Nm of torque that is seen on the current breed of products. The engine would come mated to a CVT gearbox.
The scooters would be revealed at an event in Mumbai by Alessandro Del Piero and we would be covering the launch LIVE to bring you all the latest updates so tune into Motoroids at 4 PM on September 1, 2015 for all the latest updates about the updated Vespa.
