I am going to Vespa showroom to exchange my wife's 2008 Pleasure with Vespa LX 125.
Will post pics once I am back.
In B'lore it is elling great..it has already become a kind of status symbol to own it...
Booked it getting delivery on Friday afternoon,blue colour.
Surprising. I thought this will fail in Indian market. Seems our market is totally unpredictable.
Congrats Sat. First Vespa in TFI. Share your experience with the Vespa once you get it.
I think gurjinder has a 1995 Vespa.

Even I wanted the Vespa for myself. Would have been a perfect Italian companion for the Palio and the Jet. But it was overbudget, so got some other scooter.
We have a Activa and pleasure in the family exchanged pleasure for Vespa Lx125, Basic difference is monocoque chassis offered by Vespa and penal on frame design by Japanese manufacturers,They have brought in some technology in engine too, will start a thread by Friday.
Product may fail in market. Lot of people are being impressed by seeing milege figure. i.e. 68 km/ltr.
But 68 km/lt is under standerd test condition.
This test condition is person with 50 kg & steady speed of
40 km/hr without braking & change in rpm.
In addition to that this test is by testing condition of manufacturer. Figure of ARAI is more reliable.
As product is being made by paying royalty
So price of spares may be a issue.
As per road test vespa gives 41 in city & 43 on highway.
Max. Torque & power is generated at very high rpm so drivability is issue. You have to twist more throttle to get potential from it.
My Kinetic Nova 135 & K Flyte 125 has more punch at lower RPM
So IMO product is useless & unnecessary high in cost
It is being sold only by painting it boldly. It looks fimsy.
Only pros are full monocoque body & chrome accessory.
Are Bhai, its a style symbol. Youths dont buy it for mileage. They buy it for omph factor. European elegance and trendy sexy looking bike.
Forget rest all technicalities. Its already selling good amongst college going youths.
