Piaggio India launches Vespa SXL and VXL with 150cc and 125cc engine options
Piaggio Vespa has always asserted that it is not the volumes that it aims for, and instead, wishes to market itself as the seller of the most premium automatic scooters in the country. The Vespa 125, which is available in the LX, VX, and S trims, is being sold at a considerable premium over other 125cc products out there and while the Vespa 125 has never been a bestseller, it has pretty successfully projected itself as a sufficiently powerful and frugal offering that has a high aesthetic appeal. That said, Piaggio realizes that it can put a better show on the sales chart and now, it seems like the company plans to bestow the Vespa brand a major overhaul to boost the sales numbers. Piaggio India has launched the Vespa SXL and VXL 150cc models in India to establish an even stronger foothold on the Indian premium scooter market. Here, in this post, we’ve put together all the available details on the Piaggio Vespa SXL 150 and Vespa VXL 150.
