Vespa SXL 125 and VXL 125 carry a host of updates over the LX and VX models
Piaggio Vespa has mainted that it is not the numbers game that it is interested in. Instead, the manufacturer aims to market itself as the most premium automatic scooter manufacturer in India. With such plans, Piaggio Vespa has on sale the Vespa 125 premium automatic scooter, which has been available in LX, VX, and S trims and is being sold at a considerable premium over other contenders in the 125cc automatic scooter space. So far, the Vespa 125 has been successful in projecting itself as a powerful and frugal model with a very tasty bodywork and a high retro appeal.

However, Piaggio does realize that it can fare better on the monthly sales charts and hence, the manufacturer has come up with the Vespa SXL 125 and Vespa VXL 125 automatic scooters. Here, in this post, we’ve put together all the available details on the Piaggio Vespa SXL 125 and Vespa VXL 125.
