A scooter like this could only have been a Benelli. Unique, unconventional, Macis is not the only scooter with a high wheel, but it is result of a completely new and original approach to the most interesting segment of the Italian market.
Design and riding pleasure: Macis comes out a winner thanks to a perfect combination of ingredients. The uniqueness of the lines stands out at any angle of observation. The front is aggressive and dynamic, the shield contains the Benelli logo to enhance the impact of this section, and the tail is compact and slim-lined.
The attention to design comes through even in the luggage rack and the super sporty look of the spoked wheels, just as the care taken in designing the transmission casing is wholly evident. The handlebar in aluminium alloy is absolutely unusual for a scooter: it is elegant, ergonomic and remains fully in view.
Brought out in two displacements, 125 and 150, with 4-stroke engine, two-valve timing system and liquid cooling, Macis ensures impressive fuel consumption performance all to the advantage of its economical operation. The 16” wheels translate into safety but also swiftness when changing direction, not to mention riding pleasure – an essential feature of all Benelli products, motorcycles and scooters alike.
Accessories are very complete: the luggage rack comes as a standard and is ready to be installed with a practical top case kit, the compartment underneath the saddle is roomy, the front and rear end mount wide-diameter disc brakes. Last, two stands, one at side and one central, allow the rider to park the scooter effortlessly in any situation.
But Macis isn’t banking only on its image and quality of components. It has placed great attention on dynamics to result in a riding experience made unforgettable thanks to the 16” wheels, sporty frame and brilliant single-cylinder 125 and 150 engines. Macis is available in black and white.
