About SXL 150

Vespa SXL 150 is a scooter available at a starting price of Rs. 1,32,844 in India. It is available in 2 variants and 6 colours with top variant price starting from Rs. 1,38,433. The Vespa SXL 150 is powered by 149.5cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 10.32 bhp and a torque of 10.60 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Vespa SXL 150 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This SXL 150 scooter weighs 114 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 7.4 liters.

Vespa scooters are sold by the Italian manufacturer, Piaggio, in India. The brand’s portfolio has a range of scooters, all of which feature a nearly identical design and cycle parts. They are available in two engine configurations including 125cc and 150cc models, with the latter being available in two variants – VXL 150 and SXL 150. Here, the SXL is a more premium trim with a rectangular headlamp, mirrors, and fancy matte-finished colour options.

Besides the minor aesthetic differences, the SXL 150 is the same as the rest of the Vespas on the design front. The new Facelift edition, which was introduced during the BS6 transition, gets more features than before including a full-LED headlamp, an under-seat light, and a USB charger. Meanwhile, the semi-digital instrument cluster has been retained.

The revised BS6-compliant engine has not just gotten more environment-friendly but it has also lost a bit of cubic capacity. As opposed to the previous 154cc mill, it displaces 149cc now but continues to feature a three-valve, air-cooled setup. However, the power figures have gone slightly down to 10.2bhp and 10.6Nm. On the contrary, the hardware package is the same with an 11-10-inch wheel combination suspended by a single-sided link type suspension up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking is handled by a disc-drum combo, assisted by a single channel ABS.

Considering its displacement and a premium price tag, the Vespa SXL 150 doesn’t have a competition in India yet. Besides the matte-finished colour schemes, the SXL is also available in a limited edition Racing Sixties avatar which demands a price premium for the special cosmetic treatment.

Vespa SXL 150 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Brakes offer good bite
    • Easy to handle in city 
    • Sturdy build quality
  • Could be Better

    • Lacks performance
    • Price tag is high
    • Limited service network

BikeWale's Take

The SXL 150 comes with all the traditional Vespa traits such as solid built quality, light weight, sharp brakes and great handling dynamics. However, the 150cc engine could get more punch for a better ride experience. 

Vespa SXL 150 Review

To scrutinise the revisions and how they fare in the real world, we spent some time with the new Vespa VXL 150 BS6. What made things more interesting here was the presence of the new Racing Sixties limited edition SXL 150, which brings an additional aesthetic oomph and exoticism to the mix.

Introduction

Vespa SXL 150 Action

Piaggio has always been focused on delivering exclusivity and a premium feel to its customers with its Vespa scooters in India. While the ideology continues to remain the same, the transition to BS6 era has brought some changes to the Vespa offerings. These alterations go beyond cleaner engines and aim to facilitate the scooters with more practicality. 

To scrutinise the revisions and how they fare in the real world, we spent some time with the new Vespa VXL 150 BS6. What made things even more interesting here was the presence of the new Racing Sixties limited edition SXL 150, which brings an additional aesthetic oomph and exoticism to the mix. Now, with no further ado, let’s see how our day unfolded with these two Italian stunners. 

The Visuals

Vespa SXL 150 Front Right Three-Quarter

The retro-inspired Italian design of the Vespas is one of their strongest traits and that have been retained in the BS6 models as well. Hence, the VXL 150 BS6 is still an elegant-looking scooter sporting plush and curvy body panels with chrome accents. But for those who wish to draw more attention on the road, the Racing Sixties edition of the SXL 150 is a true charmer.

Vespa SXL 150 Front Left Three-Quarter

Adorning white paint all across the bodywork, it wears red stripes on certain areas which are inspired by the Vespa racing scooters from the 1960s. Lending it a sportier appeal is the blacked-out treatment on the mirrors and headlamp bezel, which are chrome-finished on the standard models. Setting it further apart are the glittering golden-coloured alloy wheels. Besides these cosmetic changes, the limited edition is mechanically the same as the standard VXL 150 and SXL 150 models. 

Vespa SXL 150 Front Wheel & Tyre

Now, may it be the Racing Sixties or standard trims, the Vespa scooters continue to exude opulence with splendid paint quality, fit, and finish, with the only niggle being the slightly substandard plastic quality of switches. 

The Package

Vespa SXL 150 Headlamp

Although the Vespas have retained their old-school styling, they have become more modern on the feature front. The halogen headlamp has been replaced by a full-LED unit while a USB charger and a boot lamp are also a part of the package now. Meanwhile, the analogue speedometer with a small LCD dash has remained untouched. Stowage needs are still fulfilled by a decently-sized under seat compartment, large enough to store a half-face helmet, and a closed storage box up front, which can take in small items such as a mobile phone and a cold drink can. 

Vespa SXL 150 Engine Bay

Vespa has also kept the cycle parts unaltered. Underpinned by a monocoque chassis, it rides on an 11-inch wheel with a single-sided link-type suspension up front and a 10-inch wheel with a monoshock at the rear. Braking is handled by a disc-drum combination with single-channel ABS. What’s majorly revamped is the engine which not only gets fuel-injection in place of a carburetor for cleaner emissions, but the displacement has also shrunk from 154cc to 149cc. Of course, the power figures too have gone marginally down to 10.2bhp and 10.6Nm.

The Ride

Vespa SXL 150 Action

The drop in performance numbers isn’t very noticeable on the road as it is still a peppy machine with sprightly acceleration. Wring the throttle spiritedly and it quickly picks up pace, accompanied by a throaty exhaust note which is typical of a Vespa. The shift from carburetor to FI has resulted in a slightly crisper throttle response, while the vibrations are also more contained now. One can feel a minor buzz on the footboard and handlebars but only above speeds of around 60-70kmph. Another reason for the lively performance of the scooter is its light weight of 114kg (kerb).

Vespa SXL 150 Action

The low kerb weight of the Vespa also contributes to its nimble handling and flicking it through lanes is effortless. Further aiding its agility are compact dimensions and the rigid monocoque chassis which concertedly deliver a fun and engaging experience. Also, the extremely short turning radius means taking U-turns and squeezing it through tight parking spots is easy-peasy. 

Vespa SXL 150 Action

Another desirable aspect of the BS6 Vespa is its ride quality. While the previous models were plagued with a bumpy ride quality, courtesy of the stiff suspension setup, the BS6 iteration gobbles up most of the potholes, bumps and ruts with much more ease now. Notably, the company says it has been progressively working on this area for a long time. Stopping power comes from a disc brake up front which quickly cuts down the pace while ABS makes sure the wheel doesn’t lock up. However, it could do with slightly more bite. The rear brake, meanwhile, has good progression but lacks feel significantly. 

Our Take

Vespa SXL 150 Headlamps

In its BS6 avatar, the Vespa VXL 150 is the same charming scooter with a brisk performance, agile handling, and easy-to-manage weight and dimensions. And the improved ride quality only adds to its positive facets. But the biggest chink in the Vespa’s armour is its over the top price tag. The VXL 150 BS6 costs Rs 1.23 lakh while the Racing Sixties edition is pegged at Rs 1.34 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom). The latter is undoubtedly gorgeous but demands too hefty a premium for only a cosmetic job. 

Vespa SXL 150 Seat

Despite the exorbitant cost, these scooters are devoid of things like a parking brake, external fuel filler cap, and a data-extensive digital dash, which have become a norm these days. But then, Vespas are more of lifestyle products meant for buyers who prefer form over function, exclusivity over practicality, and boldness over subtlety.
