Buyer beware!!

2 months ago by Sarath John713 views

I am a Vespa owner for the past three months in kochi and I have to say that the after sales services provided by Vespa and aprilia dealer is no where near to even the standards of Honda or hero scooter services. My scooter had major electrical issues from the factory and died completely while on road during a Christmas midnight. Then I had to push the scooter all the way to my home and called road side assistance in the morning and they came and took the scooter to the service Centre and I picked it up two days later with the rear number plate dented and scratched. Again the same electrical issue happened and this time I met with an accident as a result of it. After questioning them their quality of services and expressing my frustration of spending 1.4 lakhs on a scooter that constantly breaks down, they agreed to look into it thoroughly and they replaced the complete fly wheel magneto assembly. I reported the same to vespa customer care and till now, I have not received a follow up call from them. As a result of the accident, my brand new scooter has scratches on its body and when I asked them to fix it as it was not caused due to my negligence, they just painted the center stand after I insisted a lot and said that the rest of the scratches are negligible. As I didn't have time to spare behind this vehicle anymore, I just left it as it is and is thinking of fixing it under insurance later. I have to say that any people looking forward to buying aprilia or vespa must make sure that the dealer who services your vehicle has a good reputation and is committed. I had a small talk with the new customers of Vespa and Aprilia and have come to know that some are facing electrical issues with the vehicle. So, please research well before spending such a huge amount of money. Even though I am a Vespa owner, I don't find it worth spending so much considering its low mileage, dearer spare parts and low quality after sales service. I would personally not recommend any of their scooters to my dear and near ones as a person who is using it daily. The electrical issue that I had come across is just one among all the issues that I have faced since purchase. The other issues include, engine oil leak from drain bolt and engine oil filler cap after first service due to failure to replace the respective gaskets, water ingression in rear left indicator due to a broken indicator assembly from factory which I fixed using araldite and ignition coil fault that caused frequent ignition failures. All these have happened only within the second service of this scooter and I feel like selling this scooter off as soon as possible but is still holding onto it because of the huge amount of money that I have spent on it. So, please verify with anyone whom you know have purchased from a dealer nearby you before spending such a large amount. If you have no sources then, at least check for google reviews and read all reviews carefully. Please, I have suffered a lot and now i don't want anybody else falling unknowingly into their 'premium experience' tagline. So, kindly research a lot and invest your hard earned money wisely.

    I bought this Vespa from Vespa authorized ramtara mobility in Aurangabad which closed down after 2 years, then I shifted my servicing from their to new alpha motors, which was initially good with good trained professional staff which was later changed with idiot unprofessional mechanics. Every time I show them that I've problem with something, their only suggestion is change it or replace it. To every problem they've only one solution, that is replacement. Till date I've replaced 1x tail lamp, 2x all buttons, 1x side stand, 2x seat cover, 2x mirror, 8x brake cable, 2x fuel tank, 2x shock-abs, 2x indicators, 1x engine wall lapping and many more things , the scooter is very nice if maintained well, ride quality is good, engine power is good but service is very bad, spare parts are always unavailable & insanely costly. Cost of replacement of front & rear mud guard is around 4000 Rs. Mirror replacement 1100 each, meter cover replacement 2200 Rs. servicing charge 760++ worst experience buying this scooter

    Buying experience was good. The time i test rode it, i knew this is the best scooty available in India, if it fixes two issues, then there is nothing like it. First is the bump at the rider foot rest and second is the petrol tank know outside the seat. It is really comfortable and a best gift that you can give to yourself under budget.

    These vespa scooties are not for hilly areas such as nainital it cannot climb a hill with pillion because of its gear reduction assembly, power figures are high due to which i have buy this but it is failed to show 10.6nm torque even after changing its gear reduction assembly only performed a bit better but activa 125 and tvs ntorq 125 which have less power figures climb easily with pillion. Vespa is for plain areas it is not suitable for slopes.

    The best scooty I've ever touched. The feel and comfort when riding is somewhat similar to riding a bike. Powerful engine and sudden response. Best breaking systems. Harley davidson like in looks or Harley in the scooter world. Worth buying for a ride lover. Stays different even in heavy traffic. Will have a pride holding vespa on road. Only thing I don't like is with the mileage, cannot give the supposed mileage.

    Starting with buying experience the dealer is located near my house and has good staff too. All the paperwork needed was done very quickly and they ensured that it was hassle free within just one visit. Coming to riding experience vespa is one of a class vehicle. Even if its just 125cc its power figures are too awesome. On paper it may seem similar to others in the section but still its got good pickup power.I use vespa for daily commute and occasional rides. Despite being a little heavy because of all metal body its easy to maneuvering through the city traffic and pretty much stable on highways at high speeds. The suspension is good and braking is kind of ok.. It can be improved. Talking about mileage figure its around 50kmpl in city and around 60kmpl on highways. For the looks its retro style looks little bit odd to some people but i love it. Its very comfortable to ride on city road and highways both for rider and pillion. Having large seat and ample storage space. Servicing and maintenance cost is very low and it hardly takes 2-3hrs to service. Pros: Good mileage. Easy handling Good performance. Cons:Heavy body. Brakes The price of variants is bit more than others in the 125cc section .
