From Cruiser to Commuters, 2024 Keeway Models for America Revealed

For immediate Release, Frisco, Texas, February 26, 2024

With jubilant anticipation Keeway introduces its first four all new models for the American market; the Sixties 300 and Versilia 150 retro scooters, Vieste 200 modern scooter, and the V302C versatile lightweight V-twin cruiser.

Sixties 300

The Keeway brand-leading Sixties 300 scooter is a unique take on retro fashion for a fully modern scooter designed for everything from buzzing around town to highway fun. It’s powered by a 278cc single-cylinder 4-stroke 4-valve liquid-cooled engine producing a powerful 25hp (19.0kW) at 8,250rpm and 17.7ft.lbs. (24.0N·m) of torque at 7,000 rpm, driving a twist-and-go CVT powertrain to a top speed of 75mph (120kmh). Other technical features include EFI, KYB front suspension complemented by dual KYB shocks with preload adjustability in the rear, and braking front and rear by Nissin calipers with Bosch ABS.

The Sixties 300’s 1960s sculpted styling features a front-fender ornament, bold front grill, separate quilted seat pads for rider and passenger, and swoopy side panels finished off at the rear by swanky fin-styled LED taillights. The Sixties 300’s multi-colored digital dashboard features digital and analogue gauges including speedometer, odometer, clock, and fuel. There is roomy under-seat storge, and a rear luggage rack. The stylishly cool Sixties 300 is a rider-friendly scooter with ample performance for commuting, cruising, and touring.

The Sixties 300 is available in Sky Blue, Matte Black, or White, with an MSRP of $5,299.

Versilia 150

The neo-classic Versilia 150 is the smaller sibling to the Sixties 300, powered by an air-cooled 149.6cc EFI-fueled engine putting out 9.7hp (7.2kW) at 7,000 rpm, and 7.7ft.lbs. (10.5Nm) at 6,500rpm. Final drive is through a twist-and-go CVT transmission. Braking is by front single disc and rear drum.

All Versilia 150 lighting is LED from front to back. The Versilia leads with the stacked retro headlight and modern full width daytime running light incorporating the front turn signals.  Rounding things out, the minimalist taillight bracketed by rear turn signals is seamlessly incorporated into the bodywork for the perfect finishing touch. The gauges feature a speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge, and clock. A luggage rack sits behind the one-piece custom seat in addition to ample under-seat storage for a helmet or packages. For easy access a locking glove box with USB port sits below the backpack hook and keyless ignition as well.

The Versilia 150 is available in Grey, Red, or White, with an MSRP of $2,499.

Vieste 200

The Vieste 200 scooter is a wholly modern design both in aesthetics and technology. It features a 171.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine, putting out 11.4hp (8.5kW) at 7,500rpm, and 8.9ft.lbs. (12Nm) of torque at 5,500rpm, delivering a top speed of 59mph (95 km/h) through its CVT final drive. The suspension features a telescopic fork up front and dual shocks in the rear. Braking is by discs at each end, with a 240mm disc at the front and 215mm at the rear, both with CBS.

The dash of the Vieste 200 houses analogue gauges for speedometer and tachometer, positioned abreast of digital displays of temperature, odometer, trip meter, clock, and fuel. Fronting the futuristic styling are four LED projector headlights with DRLs for enhanced visibility, LED turn signals and taillight, and weather protection enhanced by the swooping fairing. Rear grab rails are standard, plus two storage pockets above the footwell, a USB port, and a large storage bin beneath the seat for all of your shopping or commuting needs.

The Vieste 200 is available in Blue, Grey, or White, with an MSRP of $3,399.

V302C

The V302C cruiser is a lightweight V-twin roadster with big-bore aspirations, providing an excitingly deep growl and surprising performance. Powered by a liquid-cooled 298cc V-twin with eight valves, the SOHC EFI-fueled V302C produces 30hp (22kW) at 8,500 rpm, and 19.5ft.Lbs. (26.5Nm) of torque. Power is put to the ground through a manual six-speed transmission via a silent belt final drive.

Rider features begin with the shorty drag bars for a sporty feel complemented by the upside-down fork legs and rear dual shocks. Centered on the bars is a round full digital dash with tach surrounding a speedometer, fuel gauge, gear indicator, odometer, and clock. The overall look of the V302C is dramatic with its blacked-out bars, wheels, exhaust, fork legs, and engine. All lighting is LED, featuring a ringed driving light inside the headlight’s black bucket.

The fat, midsized-diameter tires maintain the V302C’s low profile, low center of gravity, and low, low one-piece seat height of 27.1”, with a 120/80×16 front tire and a 150/80×15 rear. This low-carried weight drives the V302C’s appeal to a widely diverse group of riders from neophytes to knowledgeable rockers. The 300mm front brake disc is mated to a radial-mounted caliper for exceptional feel, backed up by a 240mm rear disc, each with ABS. The whole package weighs in at a low weight of 367 lbs. (167KG).

The V302C is available in Black, Red, or Grey, with an MSRP of $4,999.
