Scooters have a good market place in past few years. They have an advantage of good mileage and provide you with a comfortable ride. Honda is working on Gilera GP 800, an 850cc V-twin-engined scooter that will most likely become the the world’s fastest scooter.
The prototype is tops the list with its extraordinary specifications and outrageous performance. The Gilera GP 800 is meant for people who seek the performance and all the sensations of riding that only motorcycles were so far capable of offering, without having to sacrifice the practicality of a scooter.
The new 800 scoot will comprise of a steel frame with 41mm forks and 300mm twin front discs compliant to match the speed limits. Emphasis has been paid on to make you ride comfortable and it has been shaped on an ergonomic approach that makes it fit for long rides and daily use. The belt driven prototype will offer you with an immense driving experience and powerful engine will just let you to explore the places where you have never been before on a scoter. Solid brakes system features two 300 mm steel disks in front, gripped by two Brembo dual-piston floating calipers, and a 280 mm rear disk that can bring you to a halt with in no time.
The styling body features graffiti on the frame and provides the machine with dynamic looks.
