    Piaggio had launched ABS and CBS-equipped versions of most of its Vespa scooters back in December 2018. One Vespa that didn’t get the safety feature at the time the LX 125. However, Piaggio has equipped this model with the safety feature along with a change in its name. Called the Vespa ZX 125 CBS, the retro-styled scooter has been priced at Rs 78,750 (ex-showroom, Mumbai).

    Dealers we spoke to also informed us that the ZX 125 has now become the most affordable Vespa offering in the country, replacing the Notte 125 as it hasn’t been updated with the mandatory safety feature yet.

    Unlike the LX 125 which got drums at both ends, the ZX features a disc brake up front. Everything else, however, remains unchanged. Suspension duties are still carried out by the single-sided, hydraulic shock absorber and hydraulic monoshock. The bike is powered by the 125cc, carburetted, 3-valve, single-cylinder engine that makes 9.6hp at 7,250rpm and 9.9Nm at 6,250rpm.
