Here we have updated all the details about Piaggio Vespa Liberty 3V, its price and Specifications.
Piaggio Vespa Liberty Highlights
The Piaggio Liberty showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo created quite a stir and now the Italian manufacturer is reportedly planning to launch it in India. Piaggio has been in the Indian scooter market for a while. Now but only with the premium Vespa offerings. And considering that it comes with a heavy price tag. It hasn’t been able to garner great sales. In a bid to expand its scooter portfolio. Piaggio showcased the Liberty scooter along with a bunch of Vespa offerings.
The Liberty is a step-through, very popular in South East Asian markets, but not very successful in India, the few times any manufacturer has tried launching any, like the Hero Streak. What the Liberty will hope to achieve is some interest with its utilitarian image and fuel efficiency.
Vespa Liberty 3V Features
Highlights of the Piaggio Liberty will be the 14-inch wheels compared to 10-inch wheels found on most other scooters on sale in India, electronic immobiliser and disc brakes.
Powering the scooter will be the same 125cc engine that is seen on the standard Vespa but it will lose the 3-valve technology to cut cost and will be tuned to deliver better fuel efficiency.
