Vespa Notte 125 Paired with a CVT unit, the scooter draws power from a 125cc three-valve single-cylinder engine that generates 10.6PS at 7500rpm and 10.6Nm at 6000rpm. Suspension duties are handled by trailing setup at the front and a single shock absorber at the rear. Being an entry-level scooter in the Vespa range, it uses drum brakes on both ends. Even the three-spoke alloy wheels are shod in tubed tyres. Vespa could’ve offered a front disc at least as an option considering the price it commands. The under seat storage capacity stands at 17 litres, and the fuel tank can hold 7 litres of petrol. The cosmetic enhancement is expected to be coupled with restricted numbers, to help its desirability and bump up the asking price. There is no real competition for the Vespa Notte other than products.
Finished completely in matte black, the Vespa Notte 125 features black mirrors, black grab rails and 11-inch black wheels. The scooter, however, misses out on the front disc brakes and tubeless tyres that are available on the other models, which explains the more affordable pricing. With respect to mechanicals, the Vespa Notte continues to use the same 125 cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine tuned for 10 bhp and 10.6 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a CVT unit. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks up front and a single shock at the rear. Vespa Notte 125cc still commands a premium over most of its rivals, barring the Burgman.
