Piaggio Vehicles Pvt Ltd haveÂ entered into a partnership with Snapdeal to sell their range of premium scooters online. Other scooter manufacturers like Hero MotoCorp and Mahindra Two-WheelersÂ have beenÂ selling their vehicles online for a while now.
PiaggioÂ believe thatÂ this new partnership with Snapdeal will help them target younger customers who are tech savvy and opt for purchases which do not require much effort. For a booking amount of Rs 5,000, you can now book any scooter from Piaggioâs stable such as the Vespa, VX, Vespa S and Vespa Elegante. Piaggio will offer Rs 2,000 Snapdeal cash to the first 100 customers. This can be redeemed at the next purchase from the online retailer.
Â Sanjeev Goyle executive vice president , 2W Business, Piaggio Vehicles Private Limited said, âThe brand Vespa has a global appeal and has been the most stylish two-wheeler around the world. Our premium product Vespa has received a lot of recognition since its launch in the Indian market. From the launch of the Vespa LX to the launch of the sporty Vespa S, our endeavour as a brand has been to offer ultra-modern and sleek designs that appeal to the youth segment.
