Vespa has launched the Notte at a price of ₹ 70,285, ex-showroom, Delhi. 'Notte' is Italian for 'night', and as such it features blacked-out everything. There is no chrome, and even the wheels are blacked out.
The Notte that has been launched is mechanically identical to the Vespa LX 125 that is sold in India, and as such, costs ₹ 4000 less than a regular LX. It has a 125cc single-cylinder engine that generates 9.5bhp and 9.9Nm. Internationally, the Notte is a very different model to the one available in India.
The Notte is understandably available in just one colour - matte black - and is available in Vespa showrooms now. It competes with the likes of other upmarket 125cc scooters like the Aprilia SR 125, Honda Grazia, TVS Ntorq and Suzuki Burgman Street.
