Piaggio India has launched the special edition Vespa Racing Sixties in 125 and 150cc versions in India. The Vespa takes inspiration from the racing vehicles of the 1960s, a remarkable era fuelled by its core spirit of speed and winning. The new Vespa special series is based on the Vespa SXL 150 and SXL 125. The “Racing Sixties” edition was unveiled at Auto Expo 2020 in Greater Noida at the beginning of the year.
The 125cc Vespa Racing Sixties special edition has been launched at Rs 1.20 lakh and its 150cc version is priced at Rs 1.32 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The classic and sporty look of the Racing Sixties is complemented with the colour theme of 1960s racing machines - red graphics with a tinge of gold on white body colour and golden 5 spoke Petal alloy wheels. The clean graphic lines enhance the sides and the front tie while the highlighted matte black finish of surrounding elements, including the rear-view mirrors, grab handle and footrests, the front and rear light applique and the Muffler cover create a contrast.
