Vespa VXL 149 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Sturdy built quality
    • Light weight makes it flickable in traffic
    • Brakes have good amount of bite
  • Could be Better

    • 150cc engine feels under-powered
    • Lack of space on footboard
    • Ride quality is quite stiff

BikeWale's Take

The VXL 150, like all Vespas, boasts of an eye-catchy Italian styling which is purely retro. Besides the good road presence, it is also fairly agile to easily flick in traffic while the good brakes add to the overall experience.  However, the 150cc motor could do with better acceleration.
