Hi, thanks for the pics. I visited the stall, but didn't get pics as nice as yours. The vespa GTS300 should have been launched last year. They showcased it at IBW Goa as well. Regarding the premium pricing, it's OK if they charge a premium, but should offer more options.

Do they have plans to launch the GTS-300 in India? Looks quite tempting. Wonder the pricing of it though. 50k premium over the 150?

Beautiful scooters and bikes. Italians have a flair for design and they surely knows how to spruce their vehicles with differentiated retro'sque designs.

Quite a healthy line up that can be launched in India and they sure will find takers in young urban indian crowd.

Just looked up Vespa's offerings in India and searched about 946. There were some ramblings in 2014 that Piaggio were planning to launch the Vespa 946 (CBU route) later that year at a price tag of whooping 8 lakhs INR. Of course it didn't happen till date. This is not the Armani limited edition either. Piaggio got to be kidding themselves...8 lakhs for a 125cc scooter...regardless of how much of flagship model it may be, this type of pricing will see the downfall of Vespa which as it is considered to be selling overpriced scooters currently by general masses. Piaggio might be better of not to launch 946 in India to save themselves.

Aprilia RSV4 RF has a pillion seat. You just have to remove the rear seat cowl and put the seat there. Looks exactly like the one on the Tuono.
If you ride solo, then I would recommend taking those passenger foot pegs off too. That's what I did and mine looks cleaner and meaner.

DROOL. I am sold. This bike now for me rates the best looking from this Auto Expo.

Is there an approximate price for these bikes.

For those who want to see how it looks riding

As stunning as it can get from Piaggio !! I am not a Bike Enthusiast by any means, but I just could not resist the mean machines. Sharing some "some what" stunning pictures that I could manage to click on my visit to the Piaggio Stall @ the Auto Expo 2016 :

Tell me about it man!
I am known to be a Triumph man. But, the Moto Guzzis, the Audace in particular, had me on my knees. There are issues, for instance, the switchgear may not be the same quality as the Brits, but that will not stop me from wanting one very badly. These are probably the best-looking bikes I have ever seen.

Any idea if they are planning to open shops. I am sure it will start at Bangalore and trickle down to other places Audace is beautiful. Audace looks like a fully black version of the eldarado. But i am a sucker for those white tyres which i paint in my bull.

I think these will be in the fat boy price range. The audace sells at 17K mrp approximately in US Darn!!!!
