Alwyn Puspak[edit]

APSL started production of the Allywn Puspak scooter, with technical knowhow from Scooters India, another public sector undertaking from the state of Uttar Pradesh which manufactured Vijay Super scooters, originality a "Lambretta GP under license from "Innocenti of Italy. This Puspak model was very similar to the Vijay Super except for some changes in the front mud guard and other small panels and with few changes in the mechanicals. Sales were sluggish and production facilities were underutilized.

In the early 1980s APSL entered into a collaboration agreement with "Piaggio, Italy, to manufacture a smaller range of "Vespa scooters of 100cc, 80cc and mopeds. The European model Vespa 100 was chosen, rebranded as Vespa PL170, launched in 1983, and was in production until 1986.
