Benelli is currently testing the Caffenero 150 on Indian roads. It will be launched in our market in the near future and will compete with other to-be-launched power scooters.
Power scooters have been a rarity in India. You may ask why? The biggest reason for the same is the nature of buyers of scooters in India. Most of the customers look at them as a point A to point B vehicle and don’t care much about power. In fact, all they really want is a cheap and fuel efficient scooter which does the job.
If someone wants a little more power, the only option they have is buying a motorcycle with a bigger engine. But, with traffic conditions worsening in most cities, riding a bike has also become a bit of a task. This has led to people looking out for power scooters. But, currently we don’t have any in the market. However, this will change very soon.
Benelli is currently testing the Caffenero 150 on Indian roads which indicates a launch in the near future. The power scooter boasts of striking design and comes with a 151cc engine which produces 13 BHP of power and 13.3 Nm of torque. It gets 16-inch wheels which would lead to better stability and comes with disc brakes at the front as well as rear for enhanced braking.
The Benelli Caffenero 150 isn’t the only power scooter making its way to India soon. The Aprilia SR 150 will be hitting our roads soon and things won’t stop there. While these two scooters will be priced at a slight premium owing to their brand positioning and premium components, Honda and Hero will also come up with their offerings which will be priced more aggressively.
