2022 Keeway Viesti 300 Maxi-scooter
The first of the two new scooter offerings from Keeway is the maxi-scooter – Vieste 300.
It is offered in three colours – Matte Black, Matte Blue & Matte White.
Vieste 300 sports the modern maxi-scooter design and aesthetics. Keeway explains that the ‘sleek aerodynamic design & angular bodywork’ have been specifically designed. This design ‘wraps’ around the cockpit to provide better aerodynamics and offer least wind-resistance to the rider.
The Maxi-scooter gets 4-LED headlight unit combined with DRLs, LED tail-light and turn-indicators and for convenience gets Keyless ignition assisted by a key-fob.
Powering the Viesti 300 is a 278 cc, liquid-cooled, single cylinder engine which produces 18.7 HP at 6,500 RPM and 22 Nm of torque at 6,000 RPM. The transmission is automatic and the system is Belt-drive instead of chain one.

2022 Keeway Sixties 300i Retro scooter
The second scooter offered from Keeway is a retro looking ‘ Sixties 300i’.
The Keeway Sixties 300i is offered in three colours – Matte Grey, Matte Light Blue & Matte White.
The Keeway Sixties 300i, aptly named, flaunts the groovy & curvaceous styling of the ‘60s. The company describes the retro scooter to be an ‘homage to the decade of flared pants, rock music, splashes of colour and distinct individualistic style’.
The design and styling of the scooter is strictly retro with styling cues full of curves and lines that stretch along the length of the scooter. The tear-drop shaped engine cover, the slanted front apron, the oval headlight, the round rear-view mirrors, the small exhaust unit below the engine cover, all details are very reminiscent of the old scooters.
Powering the Keeway retro scooter is a 278 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine which produces 18.7 HP at 6,500 RPM and 22 Nm of torque at 6,000 RPM. The scooter runs on 12” alloy wheels, stopped by single-disc setup at both ends and gets dual-channel ABS as standard.
Feature-wise, the retro scooter gets a touch of the modern times. The headlight, tail-light and the turn-indicators get LED lighting. A multifunction ignition switch has been added to the scooter which integrates the electronic starter, under-seat storage switch and the steering lock. The fuel-capacity of Sixties 300i is 10 L.
Booking for both the scooters have now officially begun at Rs. 10,000/- for each model.
