Some cosmetic upgrades will also be seen, such as new decals and colour options. Of course, the retro look will still continue, as it is the USP of Vespa scooters. Aprilia is known for its racy looking scooters.

With this, the prices of scooters will increase. HMSI has confirmed that the Activa 125 BS-6 will be around 10-15% more expensive than its BS-4 version. This can be the same as with other scooters as well.
