Vespa Goes Green

The letters LX stands for the Roman numeral 60, marking the 60th anniversary when the Vespa LX model was first launched in 2006 and after 66 years of selling over 17 million scooters, Vepsa has come a long way with its latest rendition, the Vespa LX 150 with the new 3 valve motor. Just short of an electric motor, the Vespa LX 150 3v is the greenest scooter yet to come out of Piaggio.

Piaggio has brought the old 150cc engine into the 21st century but adding a 3 valve head and advanced fuel injection system thereby improving fuel efficiency by a claimed 30%. By going green, Piaggio has not sacrificed performance and have increased the power output and top speed upwards. Not to forget service intervals have increased to 10,000km, wow.

This timeless classic has moved into the next generation, way ahead of competition. The best thing is that the Vespa LX 150 3 valve has just being launched in South Africa, so get yourself over to your nearest Vespa dealer.
