The Vespa LX is the entry-level model in Piaggio’s scooter line-up in India. A modern incarnation of the original the Italian scooters from the 1960s, the LX is offered in a single variant with a 125cc engine.
The Vespa LX continues to embody the simple-looking original design philosophy that made retro scooters so popular. The design theme includes the round headlight, curvy body panels and a slightly forward leaning stance. The Vespa LX is powered by a 125cc single cylinder unit that produces 10bhp and 10.6Nm of torque, and is mated to a CVT gearbox.
Standard features include an electric start, front disc brake, single piece analogue instrument cluster that provides speed and amount of fuel in the tank. The Vespa LX rides on modern single side arm hydraulic front suspension and a hydraulic rear shock. Stopping power is provided by 150mm front and 140mm rear drum brakes.
The Vespa LX 125 is available in four funky colours - monte bianco (white), giallo lime (yellow), rosso dragon (red) and nero matt black. The LX 125 competes with the Suzuki Access 125 and the Honda Activa 125, though it is way more expensive than these scooters. The LX125 is priced at Rs 70,273 (ex-showroom, Delhi)
