India's most premium scooter
For information, let us tell you that the C400GT when launched, will prove to be the most premium scooter in the Indian market. Which is likely to cost around 5 lakhs (ex-showroom). However, the company has already started pre-bookings on the maxi-scooter for a token amount of Rs 1 lakh. This scooter will make its way into the segment of Suzuki Burgman Street 125 and Aprilia SXR 160 when launched in India. There will be no direct competition for the C400GT in the Indian market. However, later, Honda may introduce the Forza 350 in India, for which no official announcement has been made as of now.
Might be the most powerful scooter
As an engine, the company can use a 350cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine in this scooter, which comes with a CVT transmission. This engine is capable of generating 33.5bhp power and 35Nm of torque. The point to note here is that if the scooter is equipped with the same power from launch, it will be one of the most powerful scooters in the Indian market. Which will include many features like ride-by-wire throttle, traction control, and riding modes.
A long list of features
In terms of features, the C400GT gets a complete maxi-scooter body kit with muscular body panels. This includes a tall windscreen, pull-back handlebars, a large stepped seat, dual footrests, full-LED lighting, keyless ignition, heated grips, heated seats, ABS, anti-theft alarm system, and a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster.
