2012 Vespa LX Touring 150

TOURING SPECIAL EDITION

Style and comfort in timeless lines: the Vespa Touring versions are inspired by the legend of touring on a Vespa.

The Touring Special Edition, available for the svelte 2012 Vespa LX 150, draws inspiration from the thousands of specially equipped Vespas for touring that have taken entire generations on road trips all over the world. This is a range dedicated to the love for touring, with a proper mix between unmistakeable Vespa style and the practicality of a vehicle which can leave the city limits behind and set out on medium range touring.

The “Touring” badge proudly flaunted on the shield back plate alongside the glove box identifies the new Special Edition and accentuates the sophistication and elegance of the Vespa LX.

The finishings of the Touring Special Edition are designed to enhance the Vespa line: the standard chrome finish luggage racks on the front and back ends, increase the load capacity of the vehicle quite considerably; the rounded transparent headlight fairing embraces the Vespa’s eye with a touch of style and increased protection for the rider. The new saddle with new design thermobonding complements the vehicle thanks to colour-coding with the body colour.

A design element which further enhances the refined style of this Vespa is the colouring of the side plastic panels which embrace the lower part of the vehicle, colour-coded with the bodyshell in Marrone Terra di Toscana.

Vespa LX Touring comes equipped with 50 2-stroke and 4-stroke, 125 and 150 cc 4-stroke engines (all approved in accordance with the strictest emissions standards) in order to offer brilliance and agility in every day city travel, as well as allowing quick and safe trips. Dedicated to those who love freedom and want to escape the city commute, the Vespa LX Touring is also dressed in the exclusive Marrone Terra di Toscana colour and comes equipped standard with the convenient side stand which allows quick stops with minimum effort. The new, enriched saddle with matching thermobonding and colouring gives the vehicle a further touch of elegance. The Vespa LX Touring also comes standard with chromium plated front and rear luggage racks.


 

 

 

2012 Vespa LX Touring 150 Model Highlights

The “Touring” badge proudly flaunted on the shield back plate alongside the glove box identifies the new Special Edition and accentuates the sophistication and elegance of the Vespa LX and Vespa GTS.

Cleverly re-interpreting some of the traditional design and technical elements of vintage Vespas of the 1960s, the LXV is the result of pure Italian creativity and industrial culture. The LXV is built around the LX engine, a 150cc four-stroke engine that allows you to travel the highways with as much confidence as the city streets.
