New Straits Times - - Cars Bikes & Trucks - Arman Ah­mad

A Premira Sdn Bhd, the of­fi­cial dis­trib­u­tor of Vespa scoot­ers, has launched two new scoot­ers in con­junc­tion with the NAZA Merdeka Aut­o­fair, which ends today.

A new Vespa S125 model was in­tro­duced, equipped with the Ital­ian Green Ex­pe­ri­ence Tech­nol­ogy (I-GET) en­gine.

The en­gine is a sin­gle-cylin­der four-stroke 125cc air cooled en­gine with elec­tronic in­jec­tion and three­valve timing.

It pro­duces 10.2hp at 7,600rpm and 10.2Nm of torque at 6,000rpm.

Naza Premira said each de­tail, from the ex­haust to the in­ter­nal de­sign of the gear­box cover, had been de­signed to make the ride smoother, qui­eter and more com­fort­able.

The in­jec­tion sys­tem has also been op­ti­mised for ef­fi­ciency.

The elec­tronic con­trol unit (ECU) is now equipped with a baro­met­ric sen­sor for op­ti­mum com­bus­tion in any con­di­tion and al­ti­tude.

Naza Premira said fuel con­sump­tion had been re­duced to a min­i­mum, achiev­ing 60km/litre at 50kph.

With its seven-litre tank, the Vespa can get 420km on a full tank of fuel. It is priced at RM12,603 af­ter Goods and Ser­vices Tax (GST), but ex­clu­sive of in­sur­ance and road tax.

The com­pany also launched the Pi­ag­gio Med­ley S150 ABS.

Equipped with a 16-inch front wheel and 14-inch rear one- and twochan­nel anti-brake lock­ing sys­tem as stan­dard, the Med­ley boasts sta­bil­ity and safety in a stylish pack­age.

The new Pi­ag­gio is priced at RM18,327 af­ter GST but ex­clud­ing in­sur­ance and road tax.
