Based on the VX trim, the scooter is powered by a 125 cc 3-valve 4-stroke engine matched to a CVT. The engine develops 10 PS (9.85 bhp) and 10.06 Nm of torque. Suspension duties are performed by a trailing arm setup upfront and a single sided coil spring at the rear. Just like the Vespa VX, the Elegante will be offered with a front disc brake and a rear drum brake.

The company plans to cumulatively sell about 3,500 units during the festival season. Though there was no talk about the pricing at the event, we expect it to command a marginal premium over the VX.

Competitor: Honda Aviator

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