In 1964, Piaggio launched Vespa scooters in India after being called as the best scooter brand across countries. The Vespa updated model came in 2012. And recently, Piaggio unveiled the Vespa Racing Sixties Limited Edition at the Auto Expo 2020 showcasing their racing heritage. Along with it the company also unveiled an electric scooter under the name of Vespa Elettricato that is to be launched soon.
The Vespa Racing Sixties model is a Vespa Limited Edition Scooter. The company has continued with their classic approach to making a scooter with a modern engine at heart and an old school body. It looks exactly like the regular scooter in terms of shape and size. The scooter with a retro theme has a semi-digital instrument cluster flaunting LED headlamps with daytime running lights. There is also a boot lamp with a USB charger. And soon, people would be able to buy this Vespa scooter (vespa kopen) from the nearby stores.
Vespa badges are on the apron and the side panels. Scooter’s footboard is divided in the center and is not flat, getting access for the engine from the foot board. The golden colored alloys on the scooter can be shown off as the front wheel is mounted from one side. The wheels of the scooter are alloys, painted in a golden hue and the body is white in color with red racing stripes. The apron is in the center part under the headlight in red extending up to the wheel giving a sporty feel to the scooter. There is a square headlight too with a small windshield put together for the design aesthetics and has no practical purpose.
The engine on the Vespa Limited Edition is like the one in Vespa 150- a 150cc single-cylinder 3 valve engine that makes 10bhp of power and a peak torque of 10,6 Nm. It is is now BS6 compliant and gets fuel injection the same walk. There is 11-inch wheels up front with a disc brake and ABS. The rear wheel is same like previous model- 10-inch with a drum brake of 140mm. Both the tyres are tubeless the reducing the hassle of fixing a puncture on a tube tyred scooter.
