New product line for 2016 comes in two versions and sells for around $3,000.
Piaggio Vietnam has introduced the Medley ABS, the first of its new line of scooters for men, costing from VND71.5 million ($3,200) to VND72.5 million ($3,250).
There are two versions: the ABS classical version at $3,207 and the sporty version at $3,252.
General Director of Piaggio Vietnam, Mr. Costantino Sambuy, said the localization rate of the new scooter is 60 per cent and is not only being produced to meet domestic demand but also for export.
The Medley ABS has large wheels and a compact design that allows for easy city riding.
It boasts an LCD screen, electronic fuel injection system, immobilizer (an electronic security device that prevents the engine from running unless the correct key is used), and an anti-lock brake system (ABS).
In the storage compartment under the saddle is a USB port to recharge smartphones and sufficient space to store two helmets.
The air filter and oil filter will be replaced by Piaggio after the vehicle has traveled 10,000 kilometers.
