Italian auto manufacturer, Piaggio, announced that it has introduced fuel-infection systems across its entire Vespa and Aprilia range of scooters in the country. The company's Vespa and Aprilia scooter brands are now BS6 compliant.
The company feels that the new technology installed on the Vespa and the Aprilia range of scooters will enhance a riders/ owners experience. Piaggio also said that being BS6 compliant of the range of two-wheelers produced in India is ready to deliver its green objectives.
Aprilia's SR range of scooters now feature a new, high-performance 160cc engine that produces 11bhp of power that Aprilia says will fascinate owners and riders alike. The new range of BS6 compliant scooters are in sync with Aprilia's philosophy of "Designed for Racers, Built for riders".
The company continuously reinvents the SR brand to reflect the company's high performance DNA. This high-performance coupled with BS6 compliance, makes for world class, greener machines.
Mr Diego Graffi, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer at Piaggio India said, "We are pleased to transition effectively into BS VI emission norms for our Vespa and Aprilia range of scooters, well ahead of the deadline. Being aligned to the Government' efforts on emission, we have achieved significant reduction in emission through our advanced combustion system. As a global brand, we understand the need to innovate and evolve, in order to build the mobility for future."
Mr Ashish Yakhmi, the Head of Two-Wheeler Business at Piaggio India, said, "At present, we have successfully integrated BS VI technology across Vespa and Aprilia brands of scooters and have started rolling out with BS-VI engines. Our upgraded range of scooters are available across dealerships in India. The BS6 variant and models go on sale from now."
Thoughts About Piaggio Upgrading The Vespa And Aprilia Range Of Scooters To Meet BS6 Standards
Well, we weren't expecting anything else really. For any brand that wants to continue selling auto products in India, has to become BS6 compliant by 1 April 2020. Having said that, we think that brands that have already launched BS6 compliant two-wheelers in the Indian market have set a bit of a benchmark about pricing for companies that still have to upgrade and launch BS6 compliant models.
