Piaggio Vespa 946 launch in India nears but it really is pricey
Italian two wheeler makers Piaggio are keen to expand their portfolio in India. Just launching the Vespa S premium scooter in Mumbai at a price tag of INR 75,424 the company’s next launch is an exclusive Piaggio Vespa 946 which is expected to launch in June 2014 at an astounding price just shy of Rs 10 lakhs.
Vespa 946 sits on a steel monocoque chassis and is being offered in four color choices. It receives two engine options – a 125cc engine offering 11.95 ps power and 10.3 Nm torque and a 150cc engine option offering 13.2 ps power and 12.6 Nm torque. While these two engine options are being offered in global markets, India may only receive the 150cc engine.
The youthful and dynamic Vespa S was launched in India earlier this month for a price of Rs 74, 414. Its square headlight, decisive mudguard design and unique saddle are distinguishing features of the Vespa S.
Vespa 946 launched in 2013 is the most technologically advanced model ever created. Safety features on board Vespa 946 will include traction control system, Anti Slip Regulator, disc brakes in front and rear and ABS. It will be introduced into the country via the CBU route and will be painstakingly assembled by hand. It will clearly be a super premium product from Vespa positioned at the top of its product lineup.
