Motosikal dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd has launched the updated Modenas Elegan 250 EX maxi scooter at a recommended retail price of RM16,997. The new Elegan 250 EX now features a 250 cc 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine with fuel injection that complies with Euro 4 emission standards. The engine produces 16.5 kW @ 7,000 rpm and 22.4 Nm of torque @ 6,500 rpm.
To comply with Euro 4, this model receives additional anti-emission measures to ensure fewer toxins in the exhaust gas are released when the engine is running. The upside to the Euro 4 engine is that it will be more fuel efficient while producing less exhaust emissions.
And while its weight of 195 kg isn’t light, its low centre of gravity, relatively slim proportions and agile handling allows it to be manoeuvrable even through heavy traffic. Like most maxi-style scooters, this model aims to rival a car in terms of comfort and performance.
The 2023 Elegan model receives a fresher projector headlamp with a sleeker design, with LED Daytime Running Lights to improve visibility of the scooter for other road users. At the rear, the signature ‘X’ shaped tail lamp also enhances visibility of the scooter during night time riding.
Aside from the upgraded projector headlamp, all the other features are maintained. The features include a multi-functional digital speedometer which displays the trip-meter, a digital clock, battery voltage indicator and particularly, an oil service reminder. Standard also is a USB charger socket fitted near the handlebar for charging smartphones on the go.
Further, safety features include dual-channel ABS which prevents the wheels from locking up and provides superior stopping power in all weather conditions.
“Modenas Elegan is known with its reputation for comfort and reliability. The model comes with 2 years or 20,000 km manufacturing warranty (whichever comes first), lots of great features, good ergonomics, the MODENAS name and reputation for outstanding after-sales support. Overall, this is what people want in a value scooter. Most of the time and effort has gone into making it reliable and fuel-efficient,” said Roslan Roskan, Chief Executive Officer of MODENAS.
The Modenas Elegan 250 EX is available now in 2 new colour schemes i.e. Matte Silver Crystal and Petroleum Blue.
The first 100 buyers will receive FREE e-membership worth RM100. The membership includes a RM40 e-voucher, discounts of up to 15% on original parts, and free 24-hour breakdown towing service (terms & conditions apply).
