Piaggio, that iconic Italian Vespa maker, has now launched its latest autorickshaw in India called the Apé City diesel for Rs 1.80 lakh ex-showroom Tamil Nadu only in BS 3 variant.
Hopefully, going by its name, the three-wheeler of Piaggio is powered by a 395cc single-cylinder diesel engine of 7.5bhp and 16.7 Nm of peak torque. On technicalities, the engine is air-cooled and is devoid of turbocharger mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. In addition to it, petrol, CNG and LPG variants are also available.
Hopefully, it will be interesting to see this same engine fitted on the upcoming bikes and scooters of the future.
