Vespa has announced that it will launch the Vespa Racing Sixties in the country on September 1. The scooter was unveiled back at the Auto Expo in February this year. This limited edition scooter is based on the 2020 Vespa SXL 150. Expect the Racing Sixties limited edition scooter to command a premium of around Rs 3,000 over the standard model, which retails at an eye-watering Rs 1,27,008 (ex-showroom Pune).

The primary difference between the Vespa Racing Sixties and the standard SXL 150 is the colour scheme. The former features retro graphics in the form of red racing stripes and gold pinstripe on white bodywork. It also gets premium gold finished alloy wheels for an added retro appeal. Other notable features include an LED headlamp, windscreen, idling stop system, semi-digital instrument cluster that houses a fuel gauge, clock, odometer, tripmeter and speedometer apart from tell-tale lights. It also gets an apron-mounted storage compartment apart from the underseat for added practicality.

Mechanically, the scooter is the same as the SXL 150. The 148.5cc single-cylinder SOHC air-cooled motor churns out 10.46PS at 7600rpm and 10.60Nm at 5500rpm. The monocoque steel frame is suspended on a bottom link suspension up front and a shock absorber at the rear. For superior braking prowess, it gets a standard 200mm front disc with single-channel ABS and a 143mm rear drum.

When launched, it will be one of the most expensive scooters in the country with the only other alternative in the 150cc scooter segment being the Aprilia SR 160.
