Keeway Vieste 300: Top 5 Highlights

Hungarian two-wheeler manufacturer, Keeway, unveiled its first three offerings for the Indian market yesterday. Of the two scooters and one cruiser motorcycle, the Vieste 300 has caught quite some attention, courtesy of its sharp and unique design. So, let’s learn about its top five highlights

Design

Off the bat, the Vieste 300’s design is quite eye-catching. It dons a proper maxi-scooter attire and will be the second (read affordable) maxi-scooter option in the Indian market after the Yamaha Aerox 155. The Vieste 300 gets a sharp split LED headlight integrated into the aerodynamic front apron. It’s topped by a smoked windscreen with the number plate mounts on it. 

In typical maxi-scooter fashion, the Vieste 300’s spine takes up majority of the footboard. The fuel tank too is integrated into it with the fuel tank and seat opening switches located separately. 

Engine

Unlike any other scooter available in the market currently, the Keeway Vieste 300 is powered by a liquid-cooled 278.2cc single-cylinder motor. It develops 18.7bhp and 22Nm. That’s almost 4bhp more than the Aerox’s 155cc liquid-cooled motor with VVA. Do consider the notable size difference though. 

Features

On the feature front, Keeway has equipped the Vieste 300 with LED illumination and a fully-digital console flanked by two analog dials for the speedometer and the tachometer. The LCD houses read-outs like time, engine temperature, fuel level, odometer and speed. 

The Vieste 300 gets keyless operation and you can lock/unlock the scooter with a centrally mounted dial on the apron. You also get a cubby holder with a USB charging port in it. 

Underpinnings

Benelli  Front Disc Brake Caliper

Keeway has suspended the Vieste 300 on telescopic front forks and dual rear springs. Its braking hardware comprises a 240mm front disc and a 220mm rear disc with dual-channel ABS. The Vieste 300 rides on 13-inch wheels wrapped in a 110/70 front tyre and a 130/70 rear tyre. It gets a commendable 12-litre fuel tank. 

Expected Price and Bookings

While Keeway will reveal the official asking price for all of its offerings in a few days, we expect the Vieste 300 to cost around Rs 2.25 to Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Bookings for the Hungarian scooter have commenced on Keeway India’s official website for a token amount of Rs 10,000. Test rides will begin on 26 May followed by the deliveries in early June.
