Italian scooter maker Malaguti has announced its entrance into the South-East Asia market with the introduction of the new Madison 150 compact scooter.
- The century-old brand will take on the likes of Yamaha Aerox (NVX) 155 and Honda PCX 160.
- the Madison 150 was built based on the Madison 125 in Europe.
Despite the Italian heritage, the Madison 150 bodywork is somewhat similar to other Japanese 150cc scooters in the market, with the side profile giving the same vibe as the Yamaha Aerox 155.
Power comes from a 149.3cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that pushes out 13hp and 11Nm, and is mated to a CVT transmission with final belt drive.
Other key features include a smart key system with immobiliser, LCD digital instrument cluster, USB charging port and a 10L fuel tank.
The Madison 150 misses out on ABS in place of CBS (combined braking system) and features telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear.
Nevertheless, the Malaguti Madison 150 is available in four colour options; red, dark green, white and red and is priced at THB79,800 (RM9.9k).
