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.

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.
