mobile connectivity feature for Vespa and Aprilia scooters. With these unique
offerings on display at Piaggio’s Pavilion at the Auto Expo 2018, Piaggio is
growing its portfolio across segments.
The Aprilia SR 125 comes with a 125 cc, 3
valve engine, 14-inch big wheels and wider tyres continuing the fun-riding
experience. Its attractive exterior theme with new colours makes it a stunner
while a longer seat and a raised grab handle deliver extra comfort to the rider
as well as the pillion. Priced at Rs. 65,310/- ex showroom Pune, the Aprilia SR
125 will be available across Aprilia and Vespa dealerships in India.
The Aprilia story continues
with the Aprilia Storm, which is specially designed for the youth. The dynamic
exterior theme with vibrant colours, 12-inch wheels with wide terrain tyres,
high powered 125 cc engine and customisation through accessories makes it a
unique experience from Aprilia to the Fun loving generation Z of today.
Piaggio launched a mobile
connectivity app at the Auto Expo 2018 which will empower riders to operate and
control features of Vespa and Aprilia through their mobile phones. To be
available on the android and IOS platform soon, this smart feature can be
installed by a simple download on the mobile phone, connecting the bike either
manually or through a QR code. All the information related to the bike is
stored on the feature and riders can find, navigate and follow their bikes
using the smart connectivity app. It is also equipped with a panic alert
feature, wherein riders can reach out to the registered number configured with
the current location and ask for help in case of an emergency. Additionally,
one can book a service on the app, locate nearby service stations, petrol pumps
and connect with customer care executives.
