Lohia Machinery Limited or LML is an acclaimed name in the scooter market in India. The company has changed the face of the scooter in India with the launch of a new scooter in collaboration with Italian major Piaggio.
The company has just showcased its new range of retro modern scooters including an automatic Star 125cc 4T Automatica at the Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo Accessori (Italy) EICMA.
The gorgeous scooters include a star light range of scooters with 50cc, 125cc and 200cc two stroke engines. All the scooters from LML are equipped with a 4 speed manual gearbox. However, Star 125cc 4T Automatica is powered by a 4 stroke 125cc engine that is mated to a automatic transmission. This automatic scooter is the first attempt from LML in the automatic scooter segment.
This 4T automatic scooter comes equipped with 125cc, 4 stroke engine producing 6.8PS of power at 8000rpm. It comes with a variator transmission. This new range of scooters now are made of welded steel pipes integrated with a sheet metal body. This has resulted in reduced weight, easy maneuverability, and agility.
Other reasonable changes include a brake lever on the left handle like in conventional scooters instead of the earlier rear brake operated by pedal on the footrest.
The fuel capacity has been increased to 7 liters and fuel economy stands at 46 kmpl.
This scooter is available in 4 variants namely, classic, vintage, glamor, and prestige. A variety of color combinations are available with the option of color customization.
The scooter is likely to be priced at INR 1.57 lakhs and is set to be launched in December.
