Piaggio Vespa SXL Review

14 Jan, 2016 11:16 AM

Overview

A pure vintage beauty cannot be described more than a Vespa and this definition currently holds best for the newly launched SXL series. Its iconic designing and color availability has made it the best looking and on the same time, the most expensive scooter series in India from Piaggio. Again like the VXL, the series gets two engine options, keeping rest of the features exactly the same.

The Vespa SXL series comes with a rectangular front headlight, differentiating it easily from all the other scooters in India. The exclusive bright shades and chrome linings make it more exclusive and special. The front and side body remains nearly the same as other Vespa scooters, with the missing rear grab rail for a premium touch.

The engines powering the SXL series are again the 125 cc and 150 cc motor, producing 9.9 BHP and 11.4 BHP respectively. The torque values stays 10.6 NM for the 125 cc and 11.5 NM for 150 cc Vespa. Both the scooters are mated to Continuous Variable Transmission. The engine comes in 3-valves and has an aluminum cylinder head.

The scooters come with a great aircraft derived single sidearm front suspension with anti-dive characteristics for the front wheel whereas the rear suspension is a dual-effect hydraulic shock absorber. The front wheel gets a 200 mm disc brake whereas the rear gets a 140 mm drum brakes. The use of 110/70-11 and 120/70-10 tyres makes the Vespa more stable and provides excellent grip to the rider. The scooters have been priced at INR 81,967 for the SXL 125 and INR 88,696 for the SXL 150.
