What’s the change you may ask? Well, for starters the speedometer has seen a huge change its part analogue and part digital, which has nothing retro about it. Cosmetically there are no changes except for badging on the rear which signifies Vespa SXL & VXL. There are new colors which can be seen in the pictures. One shade of gray and a shade of blue has been spotted which do look great in the metallic glossy finish. Square headlight Vespa does look very sporty and these new colors with subtle changes do make things better.
Mechanically, the 125cc 3-valve engine is same, which makes 10 BHP and 10.6 NM of torque. The engine is a responsive unit, which makes good mid and top-end power. Suspension duties are performed by same units. However, tyres are new and are of better compound and, there is disc brake as standard at the front. Launch happens tomorrow with football player, Alessandro Del Piero. We expect the prices to go further up by Rs. 2,000-3,000.
