- Unofficial bookings have commenced for a token amount of Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,000.
Last month, we had reported that the BS6 version of the Vespa and Aprilia will receive a huge price increment. Now, we’ve got our hands on the official price list of the BS6-compliant models. The manufacturer has increased the price of the scooters by Rs 17,000 to Rs 21,000! We knew that BS6-compliant two-wheelers were going to be expensive, but this is a huge jump in price. For instance, the top-of-the-line BS6 Vespa VXL 150 Elegant is priced at Rs 1.31 lakh! That’s just Rs 3,300 less than the Yamaha FZ25, which retails at Rs 1,34,680 (ex-showroom Delhi). Here’s a detailed look at the price list:
As per our sources, the manufacturer has made some changes to the engines, exhaust and the cat-con to make the models BS6-compliant. We were expecting the updated scooters to get some cosmetic changes as well, but the Vespa SXL 150 -- which was spotted earlier -- looks exactly the same as the previous model. Aprilia will soon launch the updated SR 150, which will be called the SR 160. Head here for more details.
