The Keeway Vieste 300 is a maxi-scooter that gets European looks. The aerodynamic design with angular bodywork is both aesthetic and functional as it wraps around the cockpit, reducing turbulence at high speed. The headlights, powered by four LED projectors and DRLs, are claimed to provide ample illumination. The LED taillights and turn indicator signals sit flush with the bodywork. The Vieste 300 comes with a keyless fob for high convenience and safety. This is also powered by the same 278cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine that produces a maximum power output of 18.7HP at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 22Nm at 6000 rpm. Additionally, it gets a massive 12-litre fuel tank, Continental Belt Drive system, front and rear disc brakes, telescopic shock absorbers, and Dual-Channel ABS. It is available in 3 colours – Matte Black, Matte Blue, and Matte White.
Both these products get the Keeway Connect System. The integrated GPS unit with SIM card connects to the Keeway application and telecasts the whereabouts of the vehicle. An inbuilt battery powers the system and the vehicle can accurately track to 2.5 meters of its vicinity and for up to 3 hours even with the unit disconnected from the main battery. Other key features of the application include – remote switching off the engine, setting up of a geo-fence, maintaining ride records, setting max speed limit, and sharing location information with friends on community rides. For assistance during emergency requirements, the panic button feature helps transmit real-time location to 2 pre-set contacts via the app and also sets the process to avail roadside assistance.
Partnering with Adishwar Auto Ride India, Keeway would leverage Benelli’s dealer network of over 40 outposts across India and its assembly plant which is equipped to meet the growth plan, as per the company.
