As much as I would love to strut around on a Vespa, the sky-high pricing makes it an absurd proposition for people like me. The Yamaha Fascino on the other hand, offers similar perks for a lot less. Sure, it might not have the heritage of the Italian supermodel, but its neo-retro looks are good enough to plaster a broad smile on your face. And if the sales numbers are anything to go by, the Indian audience thinks so too.
But once you put its ‘lifestyle vehicle’ tag aside, is the Fascino capable enough to take on the best of the lot? Just about when it had its butt settled on the 110cc scooter segment throne, we decided to have the Hero Maestro Edge don its armour and duel it out with the Yamaha Fascino.
