The Vespa Racing Sixties will be a limited production model based on the brand's SXL 150 scooter.

The limited-edition Vespa Racing Sixties scooter incorporates a special livery with a white paint scheme with red racing stripes. These stripes run across the entire length of the scooter, right from the front fender, apron and rear body panels. To add to this, the scooter also comes with gold-coloured alloy wheels, adding to the special paint scheme/livery of the scooter.

Apart from the special paint scheme, we expect the Vespa Racing Sixties to remain mechanically identical to the standard SXL 150 scooter. The Racing Sixties scooter will be powered by the same 150cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine producing 10.3bhp at 7600rpm and 10.6Nm of torque at 5500rpm.

Thoughts On The Vespa Racing Sixties Limited-Edition Scooter Launch In India

The Vespa Racing Sixties will be a limited-production run scooter from the brand in the Indian market. Vespa will be hoping that the limited-edition status, along with the special paint scheme with the racing stripes will attract more customers.

The Vespa Racing Sixties scooter, however, will be offered at a steep price, considering the standard SXL 150 itself has a price tag of Rs 1.25 lakh, ex-showroom.
