The new Bluetooth feature works similar to the TVS Xconnect technology and features mobile connectivity via an app. The rider will have to type the scooters chassis number on the App and they will be able to access that particular scooter’s data. The new connectivity feature allows the rider to perform the following function:
-Locate scooters location in a parking spot using “Find me”.
-Access scooters data and different characteristics.
-Locate GPS and use the navigation to different areas.
-Locate Service centers and nearby fuel station.
The riders can also talk with customer care executives to schedule, cancel or shift, vehicle service. The scooter is also equipped with a panic alert feature, wherein riders can reach out to the registered number configured with the current location and seek help in case of an emergency.
Commenting on this occasion, Diego Graffi, Managing Director and CEO, Piaggio India said,
We will continue to explore creating premium differentiated products for the youth of the country. With the launch of the new bikes under the Aprilia and Vespa brands, we are only deepening our footprint across the country.
There is another limited edition all black Vespa Notte variant of the scooter also launched at an ex-showroom price of Rs 68,829 and it will be powered by a 125 cc engine. The company is also offering the same Advanced Connectivity technology in the Aprilia SR 150 Race and Carbon edition, but it comes optional in Facelift edition.
