Vespa Racing Sixties Launched, Priced From Rs. 1.20 Lakhs
The special edition variant is based on the SXL 125 and SXL 150 models.
Vespa Racing Sixties has been launched with a price tag of Rs. 1.20 lakhs for the SXL 125 and Rs. 1.32 lakhs (both prices ex-showroom) for the SXL 150 variant.
Available only in the SXL models, the special edition variant is dearer by Rs. 6000/- for the 125cc variant and by Rs. 5000/- for the more powerful option.
The Vespa Racing Sixties price will get customers a retro-themed paintwork that the brand offers on many of its larger scooters abroad. Called the “White Innocenza”, the base white colour is then accompanied by red and gold racing stripes that run the whole length of the scooter.
Similar treatment can be seen on the flared side panels. Moreover, the special edition also brings with it 5-spoke gold-coloured alloys, a contoured seat, while the wind deflector is standard.
Showcased at the Auto Expo 2020, the Vespa Racing Sixties edition has the same design as the updated SXL variant Vespas. Thus, it comes with a LED headlamp with DRLs, semi-digital instrument cluster, USB port, boot light, among other features.
Mechanical components remain unchanged as well. Thus, the BS6-compliant engine on the Racing Sixties SXL 125 displaces 124.45cc and produces 9.79 HP and 9.60 Nm, while the motor in the Racing Sixties SXL 150 displaces 149.5cc and produces 10.32 HP and 10.60 Nm.
Suspension on the scooters is the familiar trailing link upfront and adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking force is provided by a 200 mm disc at the front, while there is a 143 mm drum at the back. Due to the ancient drum brake at the back, ABS is only single channel.
