While the overall scooter scene in India has been dull, there have been a few interesting launches this year

Scooters have become an increasingly popular mode of transportation in recent years, offering a convenient and cost-effective way to get around. While 2022 has been a bit dry in terms of new scooter launches, there have been a few worth mentioning. This article covers the top 5 scooters launched in 2022.

Keeway Sixties 300i

Keeway entered India with three products, one of them the Sixties 300i. It’s a retro-styled scooter which features an all-LED lighting, decent underseat storage, floorboard-mounted fuel tank cap, apron compartment with USB port, and a semi-digital instrument cluster. 

Powering it is a 278.2cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which has 18.9PS and 22Nm on tap, making it the most powerful budget-scooter in India. It’s also well-equipped in terms of hardware with disc brakes at both ends running dual-channel ABS and chunky 120-section tyres for better stability. Having that said that, the Sixties is by no means cheap. But you clearly do not buy this because you need one, but because you want one. Full review here

Keeway Vieste

The Keeway Vieste 300 shares the same 278.2cc single-cylinder with the Sixties but differs in every other aspect. It’s styled as a maxi-scooter with larger 13-inch wheels, a larger 12-litre fuel tank, spacious seating, loads of storage space and an analogue-digital instrument console. 

So it ticks almost all the boxes in terms of design, features and even hardware. But you’d have to shell out Rs 3.20 lakh (ex-showroom) to get one. Our full riding experience here

A Rs 13,612 premium over the Race XP variant gets you the NTorq 125 XT. For the extra moolah, the XT gets a new industry-first hybrid split TFT and LCD digital instrument cluster with TVS SmartXonnect, featuring a dedicated screen for the Race Mode. It packs start-stop tech with silent starter, lap timer, top speed indicator, and a 0-60kmph timer.

It also gets a SmartXtalk voice assistant that can be used to control modes, screen brightness, music control and navigation among other features. The scooter comes with a new vibrant dual tone Neon Green paint scheme and refreshed graphics. It now rolls on lighter, sportier black alloys. More on the NTorq XT here.

Suzuki Burgman EX

Earlier this month, Suzuki launched the Burgman Street EX at Rs 1,12,300 (ex-showroom Delhi). That’s a premium of Rs 19,000 over the Ride Connect variant and Rs 22,400 over the standard variant.

You’d expect a lot more for the premium price tag, however, it only gets you a larger 12-inch rear wheel wrapped with a chunkier tyre, a new auto start-stop system, silent starter system along with tweaks to the engine to make it more refined and fuel-efficient

Finishing touches include a new range of colourways to choose from – Metallic Royal Bronze, Metallic Matte Black and Metallic Matte Platinum Silver No 2. Click here for more details. 

Honda Activa 6G Premium Edition

For 2022, Honda launched the Activa 6G Premium edition with a special colour series. While the overall design of the scooter remains unchanged, the Premium edition variant flaunts three new elegant colour schemes: matte red, matte green and pearl blue.

Adding to this are a pair of golden wheels and a gold-coated chrome garnish on the front apron. The scooter also features 3D gold coated ‘Activa’ logos on the side panels with ‘Premium’ written right under it. The inner body and seat get a contrasting brown colour, giving a rather dual tone appeal to the scooter. More details here.
