Shortly after the showcase of the Vespa Elegante, Piaggio Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. (PVPL) has launched the limited edition scooter at INR 78,999 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Other distinguishing visual elements include a chrome finished grille on the front apron, color coordinated leather finished split seat, an all-round chrome guard kit with a front bumper guard and an “Elegante” badge. The limited edition package also includes a color coordinated half-face helmet.
The visual add-ons apart, the Vespa Elegante is nothing but the VX 125. The steel-bodied monocoque scooter is powered by a 125 cc 3-valve air-cooled engine which is mated to a CVT. The motor puts out 10 PS (9.85 bhp) and 10.06 Nm of torque.
