    At performance level bike is very good, but the problem is at lack of parts availability at service centre and not at all available at local stores. The service centre mechanic are worst. They know nothing about bike performance level problems, but still they give you fake problem resolutions. They never resolve your problem just do temporary adjustment and give it you.Over all problem is with their service centre.

    The first few days with the piaggio vespa sxl 150 had me strutting into office much earlier than i normally did, inviting a few subtly raised eyebrows from the regular ‘early birds’ as well as the housekeeping staff. No, i wasn’t rushing to meet a deadline and neither was i falling behind schedule. It’s just that my travel time was down by over 45 minutes! as you can imagine, not having to alternate between a rickshaw, bus and a cab (in that order) had me grinning from ear to ear.

    You’d be right to point out that any other scooter would have had the same impact on reducing travel time. But bringing the same level of style to the commute? not so much. The vespa has always been instantly recognisable with its retro styling and the sxl 150 is no exception.

    In fact, it received a comprehensive design update when it was launched last year. Square headlamps along with rectangular chrome mirrors further emphasise the retro styling, beautifully complemented by five-spoke black alloys. Our long-termer also came with the addition of a lightly smoked fly-screen, and wore an eye-catching matt red colour, the latter being a regular head-turner.

    However, a big change is the addition of an all-new 150cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine, which makes the sxl one of the most powerful scooter in the segment. The motor puts out 11.5hp and a torque rating of 11.5nm.

    If the pure retro charm doesn’t turn heads, the matt red colour surely will.

    Once on the go, the vespa proved to be a complete hoot to ride. Acceleration is quick off the line and there is enough grunt right up to speeds of 70-80kph. It wore its reliability on its sleeve as its services were called upon for everything, from the usual commute to work and back, to small weekend chores to even pick-ups at the airport (complete with a pillion rider and two loaded backpacks). The tyres offer good grip and the vespa makes no qualms about being shoved around in traffic.

    The cvt transmission does a neat job and lends a considerable amount of smoothness to the ride. What is particularly commendable is it always has enough power, even at high speeds, to seamlessly carry out overtaking manoeuvres. Every millimetre of a twist in throttle is met with a quick shove forward – a trait that sets it apart from most scooters in the segment – and install a sense of confidence.

    However, it does get wobbly at high speeds and is not much of a crosswind fighter too. While the addition of the fly-screen does add aesthetic value, i couldn’t gain much from it due to my height of over 6 feet, and had wind buffeting into my face. A rear carrier or a chrome guard, for instance, could be a better choice for an optional extra, especially for tall riders. Although the vespa does a fine job of seating two average-sized adults, the absence of a rear foot-peg and a grab rail can be a bit of a grouse for the pillion rider. Moreover, for a premium bike, we felt the switch-gear didn’t quite meet the standards.

    The vespa sxl 150 makes for a fine package with a stylish exterior, coupled with a great riding ability.

    The vehicles is simply the best. It is a best head turner one can simply afford. The power of the engine is superb. The mileage is also good being 150cc comparatively!! the looks are just extra ordinary. Maintenance is very cheap and the service is pretty good as well! ...

Vespa VXL 150, SXL 150 : First Ride Review

Vespa VXL 150, SXL 150 : First Ride Review

11 September 2015
Pratheek Kunder

The Vespa VXL 150 and the SXL 150 are the 150cc avatars of the 125cc Vespa siblings. The space for 150cc mass market scooters, in India, was once empty and Piaggio with its latest offerings is the first to take up that spot.
