Limited edition Vespa launched in India on its 75th anniversary
Piaggio has launched the Vespa 75th edition scooter, celebrating 75 years since the first Vespa brand was launched in 1946. Vespa has been known for decades for the iconic designs that it brought to the scooter segment and has been coming up with updates on the same timeless design. The new limited edition scooter comes in two variants — 125cc and 150cc which are priced at Rs 1.26 lakh (ex-showroom) and Rs 1.39 lakh (ex-showroom) respectively. It will be available across India only in limited numbers.
Vespa has always been identified as a classy scooter, with a sleek metal body, and vibrant colours to choose from. The new scooter gets the same chassis as the ongoing series with visual additions that make it stand out as a special edition. It gets a monocoque full steel body, a glossy metallic yellow paint scheme with the number 75 graphics displayed on the side panels, it also gets the 75th logo on the glove box. In addition to the body graphics, the scooter gets special seats made of Nobuk leather feel in dark smoke grey colour. Similar to the VXL, the Vespa 75th gets high lumen LED headlights with centre integrated DRLs. The special edition also features a bag as an accessory, again in Nobuk leather feel which can be mounted on the rear chrome shack above the taillights.
The Vespa 75th wheels are machined alloys in dust grey colour, the accessories also include a clear front windshield visor along with a special kit from Vespa that includes collectable postcards, vintage Vespa signs and more that talks about the history of Vespa as a brand and its journey through the years.
