Piaggio has introduced e-commerce platforms with two exclusive online stores for its Vespa and Aprilia brands in India. Customers can explore the entire range of Vespa and Aprilia scooters. They can access information on the product and technical specifications of the models, check the range of colours, learn about the ex-showroom and on-road prices, calculate the EMI, apply for a loan and book online for an amount of Rs 1000, at the click of a button. Piaggio officials feel that due to the current situation, this solution would provide great relief to all the aspiring buyers of two-wheeler to move ahead in owning the world-class products from Vespa and Aprilia range.

Piaggio India has opened its Vespa and Aprilia dealerships in a staggered manner and are operating them in a safe environment. The teams are following social distancing protocols including contactless greeting, wearing protective gear and using hand sanitizers while addressing the sales and service needs of the customer, and the online platform will further help the process of buying in the current times.
