Vespa SXL 150 is a scooter available at a starting price of Rs. 1,27,823 in India. It is available in 4 variants and 6 colours with top variant price starting from Rs. 1,38,308. The Vespa SXL 150 is powered by 149.5cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 10.32 bhp and a torque of 10.60 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Vespa SXL 150 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This SXL 150 scooter weighs 114 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 7.4 liters. Vespa scooters are sold by the Italian manufacturer, Piaggio, in India.
The brand’s portfolio has a range of scooters, all of which feature a nearly identical design and cycle parts. They are available in two engine configurations including 125cc and 150cc models, with the latter being available in two variants VXL 150 and SXL 150. Here, the SXL is a more premium trim with a rectangular headlamp, mirrors, and fancy matte-finished colour options.
Besides the minor aesthetic differences, the SXL 150 is the same as the rest of the Vespas on the design front. The new Facelift edition, which was introduced during the BS6 transition, gets more features than before including a full-LED headlamp, an under-seat light, and a USB charger. Meanwhile, the semi-digital instrument cluster has been retained.
The revised BS6-compliant engine has not just gotten more environment-friendly but it has also lost a bit of cubic capacity. As opposed to the previous 154cc mill, it displaces 149cc now but continues to feature a three-valve, air-cooled setup. However, the power figures have gone slightly down to 10.2bhp and 10.6Nm. On the contrary, the hardware package is the same with an 11-10-inch wheel combination suspended by a single-sided link type suspension up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking is handled by a disc-drum combo, assisted by a single channel ABS.
Considering its displacement and a premium price tag, the Vespa SXL 150 doesn’t have a competition in India yet. Besides the matte-finished colour schemes, the SXL is also available in a limited edition Racing Sixties avatar which demands a price premium for the special cosmetic treatment.
