Keeping in line with government safety norms, Piaggio India has officially launched its Vespa and Aprilia range of scooters with the safety net of ABS and CBS. Moreover, due to the lack of any competition, it has become the first and only scooter manufacturer in India to offer ABS in the 150cc scooter space. This comprises of the Vespa VLX 150, SLX 150, Elegante 150, Aprilia SR 150 and the SR 150 Race. However, the inclusion of ABS has resulted in a price hike ranging between Rs 7,000 to Rs 10,000 over the non-ABS variants. The CBS-equipped Vespa ZX 125, VLX 125, SLX 125 and the Aprilia SR 125 get a price bump of Rs 2,500 to Rs 3,000 over the non-CBS variants.

Furthermore, Piaggio India is also offering PayTM benefits worth Rs 6,000 on Vespa and Aprilia’s ABS-equipped scooters as part of the brand’s introductory offer. The offer is applicable from April onwards. On a slightly different note, the BSVI version of Aprilia 125 was spotted testing quite recently, which suggests that the brand is now working towards making its scooters compliant with upcoming safety norms.
