Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Derives certain features from the Vespa Primavera.

The Vespa Elegante is an India-specific scooter which is getting ready to be launched in the festive season. Indian Autos Blog learns that the Elegante is essentially an accessorized version of the Vespa VX.

The exclusive scooter will be finished in Crete Senesi Brown color that is seen on the Vespa Primavera, and perhaps offer a second exclusive paint option. The Elegante will also come with broader split seat which is finished in a light brown color. The foldable front-apron mounted carrier and Elegante badges are the other possible additions.

The VX’s 125 cc air-cooled motor will continue to do the duty. Mated to a CVT, the motor develops 10 PS (9.85 bhp) and 10.06 Nm of torque. The front wheel is retarded by a disc while the rear wheel gets its stopping power from a drum brake.

Competitor: Honda Aviator

Expected Price: INR 79,000 (ex-showroom)

Launch Date: Around November 2014
