Piaggio Vehicles plans to display its global portfolio and engineering capabilities and hint at the seriousness of its India-specific plans at the Auto Expo 2014 next month. With nearly twice the size of space at its disposal (as compared to Auto Expo 2012), the company has planned a big line-up of products ranging from brands such as Vespa scooters to other Italian marques -- Aprilia and Moto Guzzi.
While Piaggio does not plan to launch any Vespa scooter model at the expo, it does plan to officially launch the Vespa S model (powered by the existing 125cc engine currently used in LX125 and VX125 models) around the third or fourth week of February 2014. Meanwhile, it is yet to decide on a suitable time to launch the much-awaited model, the stylish Vespa 946.
Besides these four models (LX125, VX125, Vespa S and 946), Piaggio Vehicles plans to display other international scooter models as well, which may include the famous Vespa Primavera.
Also present will be an interesting line-up of Aprilia and Moto Guzzi motorcycles. While the flagship Aprilia RSV4 (1000cc, V4) is confirmed, according to sources, Piaggio will also display the Moto Guzzi California 1400 (1380cc, V-twin) along with the Bellagio (935cc, V-twin), which is also currently sold in India. Additionally, there will be a host of other international models from both the brands.
