Ravi to launch the iconic Vespa scooter in Pakistan [Price Update]


Vespa is making a comeback in Pakistan with the launch of its new scooter on 2nd March. Vespa is an Italian icon that has made its mark in the automotive world throughout the globe. Decades ago, Vespas were as common on the roads of Pakistan as any other motorcycle was. And it appears Vespa is once again about to take its place as the go-to scooter.

Vespa is being launched by the same folks who sell Derbi bikes in Pakistan. Both the Vespa and Derbi belong to Piaggio group of Italy. Piaggio was first selling its Piaggio 125 Storm bike with the collaboration of Ravi Group of Companies. Later, Ravi in collaboration with Derbi, another Piaggio brand, started selling completely built bikes in Pakistan. Derbi bikes that are available right now are Derbi STX150 and Derbi ETX150. These bikes are assembled in China at Derbi plant and imported to Pakistan as CBUs.

And now, Ravi Autos is taking an initiative to bring back the icon to Pakistan once again. Ravi in partnership with Piaggio will be holding the launching ceremony of Vespa Primavera in Pakistan on 2nd of March at Pakistan Auto Show, Expo Lahore.

The new scooter is ages ahead of its ancestor, the two-stroke Vespa that you might have seen running around in your city. The new Primavera scooter is available with the option of either a 125- or a 150cc Euro-4 engine. It also has electric self-start, electronic fuel injection, automatic (CVT) gearbox, adjustable coil spring and hydraulic shock absorber, ABS with disk brakes, alloy wheels and 11″ tubeless tires, and the fuel tank can hold 8 litres of fuel, and the company claimed fuel average is 45 km/l.

    i will definitely buy a vespa. its so cool and pleasureful to ride around specially would be wonderful to ride it in islamabad and going back to memory lane when we used to steal teachers vespa to go around :stuck_out_tongue:

  4. At last a modern bike if the price is right im in.

  5. Globally a certain romanticism and nostalgia is associated with Vespas, even in modern days many celebrities use it. Its practical, maneuverable and gives great mileage.

    Sadly in Pakistan we associate Vespas with fat uncles of mohalla with heavy mustache and bag of sabzi between his legs.

    its 5099 USD in USA (60K Pak Rupees)
    and in India its about 130K Pak Rupees,

    Scooter price is 60K add 60K for customs clearance , add 30k for transport and still its 150k Pak Rupee

    Why are they setting the price at 300K? 100 percent profit?
    Can somebody plz clarify the actual price incurred by RAVI.

    and another problem with our roads, this scooter cannot pass over the huge cat eyes on the road in pakistan . how would that be managed.

    Who on earth, would buy a 300k scooter over performance bikes in pretty much same price… One of the basic concepts of scooter, is to be cheap and economical… I really wonder at times, how do a company decide to start selling basic things on ridiculous prices, and on top of that, they do have customers, who run to buy everything they offer. very very strange..
