Malaysian distributor of Vespa motorcycles Naza Premira introduces new Vespa LT.
Shortly after launching the locally assembled Aprilia Shiver 750 CKD, Naza Premira further expands its line up for the market, this time through its Vespa brand.
New to the Malaysian market is the Vespa LX. The new version is basically an upgraded LX model, as in the carbureted engine has been replaced with the same engine primed in the Primavera version.
The new powerplant is an air-cooled single-cylinder 3-valve engine with electronic fuel injection, a new bore and stroke and friction-reducing crankshaft.
It is said to be lighter than its predecessor and provides decreased friction and improved fluid dynamics – essentially providing higher performance and better fuel economy (about 30% better when compared to earlier generations) that generates lower polluting emissions. The 3V IE engine reaches the fuel level of 55km/l at 50km/h constant speed.
Apart from the engine, this model now features a two-colored saddle with an embroidered Vespa logo and also sports Italian flags on both sides of the scooter to pay homage to its Italian roots.
A round headlamp accentuates its curves and an embossed rear shield, footrest, and black lateral covers are in perfect harmony with the rear view mirrors, saddle and rims.
The Vespa LT 150 3V IE is available in two colours (red and orange) and is priced at RM9,888 (basic selling price).
Currently, Naza Premira (Vespa Malaysia) has 18 authorised dealers in Peninsular Malaysia that are fully compliant with the Vespa Corporate Identity (CI).
