Vespa S has been designed in keeping the Italian company’s 1970 heritage in mind. It embodies the heritage from the 70’s from the models like the Vespa 50 Special and the Vespa Primavera. The Vespa S is a sporty looking and has a very young design.
It looks quite similar to the Vespa LX 125 but there are certain features like the square headlight and the aggressive mudguard design that makes the front suspension visible distinguishes itself from the LX 125. The instrument cluster looks neat and continues its classic design. It has analog speedometer and tachometer along with digital clock.
The Vespa S will be powered by the same mill that powers the LX 125 and the VX. It will get the single cylinder 125cc 4-stroke engine that will churn out 10.06PS at 7500rpm and 10.6Nm at 6000rpm. This engine is mated to continuous variable transmission and is no more different from other Vespa’s when it comes to performance.
Expect this scooter to be demand Rs 3000 over its LX 125 variant which will take the price of this scooter to around Rs 75,500 ex-showroom Mumbai. And if you think the Vespa S will be the most expensive scooter in India, then you are wrong. Wait for the Vespa 946 which is expected to be priced between Rs 1.40 lakh and Rs 1.70 lakh.
