Piaggio is all set to introduce its latest offering for the Indian two-wheeler market by launching the retro and chic looking Vespa S next month

Piaggio is geared-up to expand the Vespa portfolio, as ZigWheels have learned that the new Vespa S will be launched on March 4. The Vespa S, will be the third scooter offering for the Indian two-wheeler market from the stables of the Italian manufacturer after the standard Vespa and Vespa VX. The Vespa S is the sportier version of the VX and the major distinctive visual feature of the Vespa S is its 1970s-styled square headlights in contrast to the round one found on the standard Vespa and VX. The same theme has been carried forward to the square mirrors, which have been finished in chrome.

 

To distinguish the scooter further, the mudguard on the scooter has been cut back further to reveal more of the front suspension and the alloys finished in black (sadly, we donot get the 5-spoke alloys as seen on the European model). Also the seat profile has been changed with a contrasting white piping adding to its charm. The instrument cluster has been re-designed to add to its retro appeal and sports an analogue speedometer, fuel gauge, digital clock and different tell-tale lights. To make the scooter more useful in carrying knick-knacks, two slots have been provided on the body alongwith a separate hook to hang bags.

No changes have been made on the mechanical front and the Vespa S would be powered by the same engine as on the standard Vespa. The 125cc, 4-stroke, 3-valve engine produces 10.06PS @ 7,500rpm and a torque figure of 10.6Nm @ 6,000rpm and would be mated to a CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) automatic transmission. The Vespa S will be available in a varied array of the standard striking colours, and we feel that, Piaggio will also introduce the new orange and matte black shades that it had showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo on the new scooter.  Piaggio hasn't revealed any details about the pricing of the Vespa S but expect it command a premium over the VX and hence it won't be cheap by any means.
