As we reported a couple of days earlier, Vespa is going to bring in a new affordable variant onboard. It will look identical to the other scooters in the lineup, but with minor visual differences.
Now, reports confirm that Vespa Urban Club 125 has started reaching Piaggio dealerships. It is priced at Rs 73,733 (ex-showroom Delhi), taking the on-road prices near Rs 89,000.
The deliveries of the scooters are also set to commence very soon. Urban Club is priced similarly to the Notte 125, but gets completely different colour options.
The Urban Club is available in four colour options – Red, Yellow, Grey and Light Blue. Also, the chrome detailing around the headlamp and front apron are now replaced by Blacked out paint job. The alloy wheels also receive the same Black treatment.
Mechanically, there are no changes onboard. It continues with the same 124.6cc air-cooled engine that produces 9.6 BHP and 9.9 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes paired to a CVT gearbox.
For suspension, it uses a one-sided hydraulic arm at the front and shock absorber at the back. Braking is handled by drum brakes at both the ends, with CBS as standard fitment.
Vespa Urban Club 125 continues with the same retro-cool styling as its premium feature. Other features include an analogue instrument console, round headlamps and rear view mirrors and the small seat.
It will go against the likes of Honda Grazia, Suzuki Burgman Street, Aprilia SR125 and TVS Ntorq 125. Urban Club also comes in a similar price range of Notte 125 and the ZX125, which replaces LX125.
Piaggio is also planning a couple of launches for Aprilia brand soon. Storm 125 has been secretly launched in India, while its speculated ‘Comfort 125’ is under development.
