The Aprilia SR Max 300 premium scooter has been spied in India for the first time. The 300cc scooter from Aprilia was spotted at a dealer event in Goa. However, the scooter showcased at the dealer event is the Chinese-spec made by Aprilia's partner Zongshen.
The Aprilia SR Max 300 maxi-scooter offering features an imposing design with a large front apron, twin projector headlamps, LED turn indicators and DRLs, high-definition camera between the headlamps and a large windshield.
The Aprilia SR Max 300 also features a split footboard, massive yet comfortable seats, upright riding position and a long wheelbase, making it suitable for long distance touring. Other features also include a USB charging port and a 9.0-inch TFT colour display with Bluetooth connectivity. The maxi-scooter also offers plenty of storage space below the seats and has a fuel tank capacity of 15.5-litres.
The maxi-scooter is powered by a 278cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. It produces 22bhp and 23Nm of torque and is mated to a CVT gearbox. If introduced in India, it would become the first premium scooter offering, as well as the most powerful in the Indian market.
In terms of suspension, the maxi-scooter comes with telescopic front forks and a twin shock absorbers with three pre-load adjustability at the rear. Braking is handled by 260mm front and 220mm rear disc, supported by dual-channel ABS. The scooter rides on 15-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels with 120/70 and 140/60 sections, respectively.
The maxi-scooter trend was first started by the Kinetic Blaze in India. The 165cc scooter offering was large in size and could easily do speeds of over 100km/h. Suzuki currently sells the Burgman Street in India, which comes with a similar design. We got a chance to ride the Suzuki Burgman Street recently - read our review here.
Apart from the SR Max300 maxi-scooter, the event in Goa also showcased the Aprilia RS150 motorcycle. However, both the products are not being considered for an India launch anytime soon. Although the RS150 will be a strong contender in the 150cc motorcycle segment.
Thoughts On The Aprilia SR Max 300 Maxi-Scooter
The Aprilia SR Max 300 has been showcased in India for the first time. Although a possible launch is too soon to expect, the company could have brought the scooter, to possibly access its success if introduced.
