India’s auto sector has been witnessing rough times since the start of 2019 and automakers are in huge loss. In a bid to make up the loss and cash in on the festive mood, the automakers including Bajaj Auto Limited, Yamaha and Suzuki are offering huge discounts across their product line-up. Likewise, Piaggio India has announced special festive offers on its Vespa and Aprilia range of two-wheelers. Yes, you read it right. The automaker is offering benefits worth Rs 10,000 on the entire range of 125 cc and 150 cc scooters, offered by the two brands.
It is to be noted that the buyers can avail free five years warranty and insurance on 125 cc and 150 cc models from both Vespa and Aprilia. The offer can also be availed for the models including Vespa Urban Club and the Aprilia Strom 125. It is worth mentioning here that the Piaggio’s offer is valid until October 31, 2019.
