The Vespa LX is a modern incarnation of the original Italian scooter that was popular during the 1960s and 1970s. The premium scooter was launched for the Indian market at the 2012 Auto Expo and is now available in a single variant with a single engine option.
The Vespa LX embodies the original yet simple design that made it popular during its hey-day and this design has been carried over in a more modern form. The design theme includes the round headlight, curvy body panels and of course the slightly forward leaning stance.
The Vespa LX is powered by a 125cc single cylinder unit that produces 10bhp and 10Nm of torque. It has been 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. It has also been fitted with a clock and all the tell-tale lights. Vespa sells the LX in shades of red, orange, blue, silver and yellow.
