Mr Diego Graffi, MD and CEO of Piaggio Vehicles Private Limited, said:
It is indeed a matter of pride for the Piaggio Group that our marquee products will be available in a new market like Sri Lanka. We hope to further enhance our positioning in the Indian Sub-Continent with this launch. The accolades that the bikes have received in India and other International markets, are an inspiration for introducing more innovative products in the future.
Positioned as premium offerings, the Vespa range of scooters have a classic touch associated with them. Aprilia scooters, on the other hand, are retailed as a sporty alternative.
