After unveiling the new Vespa S at the recently concluded 2014 Auto Expo, Piaggio is now all set to launch the vehicle in India on March 4, 2014. This information has been revealed by a Piaggio Vespa dealer based out of Pune, who goes on to say that the bookings for the new model have also begun. The new Vespa S will be made available in 4 colours- Orange, White, Red and Matte Black.
What set the Vespa S apart from the Vespa VX are the changes in design. The Vespa S has a squared headlamp, while the Vespa VX has a round headlight. The Vespa S also have mirrors in different shape and repositioned tail-light. Other changes are a powder coat painted three-spoke alloy wheels and a different instrument panel. So, all the aforementioned changes give the Vespa S a more premium and retro look.
Mechanically, there are no changes made to the scooter. It continues to power the same 125cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, which is found under the LX125 and VX. This engine belts out a maximum power output of 10bhp. The scooter also retains the same CVT transmission.
