 Full Size Maxi Scooters Of 2020

Maxi-scooters could be the next big thing in Indian biking culture. These scooters offer more space, more comfort and motorcycle rivalling performance. Here is a list of maxi-scooters you will see plying on our roads this year. 

Honda Forza 300:

Full Size Maxi Scooters Of 2020

What is it?

It is Honda’s sporty maxi-scooter that it sells in the European markets. As the name suggests, the Forza 300 has a 300cc motor beneath that large, sporty bodywork.

Why is it exciting?

Despite its size, this scooter can hustle. Its 300cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected single-cylinder motor delivers 25.1PS and 27.2Nm. Honda claims the Forza 300 can reach a top speed of 125kmph. And it has enough underseat storage space to hold two full-size helmets!

What will it cost?

Honda will most likely bring the Forza 300 via the CKD route. We expect it to be sold in the price range of Rs 2.5 to Rs 2.8 lakh. That is good value considering the features and performance on offer.

When is it coming?

Honda has already sold four units of the Forza 300 in India. They were Euro 4/BS6 compliant models brought in for customer feedback. However, Honda will launch the Euro 5/BS6 compliant Forza 300’s here. These are expected to reach our shores by the end of this year. Know more about the Honda Forza 300 here.

 

Aprilia SXR160:

What is it?

Aprilia’s upcoming maxi scooter is based on the SR 160 BS6 moto-scooter. It uses the SR’s powertrain and underpinnings but gets a larger maxi-scooter bodywork.

Why is it exciting?

Just look at it! The Italian styling works well and the SXR160 gets added features over the SR 160 like all-LED lighting and a digital instrument console. Also, the large windscreen and wider seat should make it comfortable over longer rides.

What will it cost?

We expect the SXR160 to be priced around the Rs 1.15 lakh to Rs 1.2 lakh rupee bracket. That’s a Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 premium over the SR 160 BS6.

    Vinod | 1 month ago Where is this kymco news coming from ? This Sept launch theory is from 2019, did they just do a copy paste job of last year's news here ? Honda Forza is definitely Rs. 5 lacs plus vehicle. 1 Reply
