PT Piaggio Indonesia, the sole distributor of Italian motorbike brands Vespa and Piaggio in the country, launched on Friday two revamped 125-cc engine-capacity scooters, the Vespa LX and Vespa S, to tap into the country’s high demand for two-wheelers.
Piaggio Indonesia president director Marco Noto La Diega said the products were equipped with Italian Green Experience Technology (i-get), which could improve engine performance, boost fuel efficiency and reduce noise.
“We introduce a new injection system with a barometric sensor to control combustion,” Diega told reporters at the launching ceremony in Jakarta.
He said his company was offering the Vespa LX i-get 125 cc at Rp 29.90 million (US$2,243) and Vespa S i-get 125 cc at Rp 31.50 million. Both products are being manufactured in Vietnam.
Diega further said that Indonesia had the second-largest Vespa community in the world with more than 40,000 users, after Italy, which has more than 120,000 users.
Established in 2011, Piaggio Indonesia sells four Italian motorbike brands in the country, namely Piaggio, Vespa, Aprilia and Moto Guzzi, at its 37 official outlets spread over several big cities. (yon)
