The Vespa Elegante will borrow some styling bits from the Primavera seen here in this image.

The Vespa Elegante will be based on the Vespa VX’s platform, but will offer more stylish looks to better differentiate itself from the VX. Some design features of the Elegante will be borrowed from the Vespa Primavera which is available internationally. Unlike the recently launched Vespa S, the Elegante will come with circular headlights.

The Elegante will be powered by the same 125 cc engine though.

Other design features on the scooter will come in the form of split seats, a triangular grille and exclusive colors such as ‘Pearl White’ and ‘Marrakech Brown’. Powering the Elegante will be the same 125 cc 3-valve four-stroke engine seen on other Vespa models in India. The engine makes 10 PS (9.85 bhp) of peak power and 10.06 Nm of torque. A CVT gearbox is used to transmit the power. Stopping power will come in the form of a disc brake at the front and drum brake at the rear.

Piaggio recently launched the limited edition Vespa Esclusivo in India of which only 1,000 units will be retailed.
