The Gilera Nexus 300 brings sporting flair to the middleweight scooter class.
GILERA NEXUS 300
Its modern, high performance engine boasts exceptional flexibility and sparkle, and establishes the Gilera Nexus 300 as the scooter the others have to beat.
The Gilera Nexus has revolutionised the world of scooters. The Nexus is a maxi that combines all the power of a single cylinder, fuel injected engine of the latest generation with a top class chassis. In fact, the Nexus is really in a class of its own, ideal for everyday commuting, but capable of delivering real riding satisfaction.
When the road takes you out of town, the qualities of the Nexus 300’s chassis reveal themselves to bring you an exciting ride that no other scooter can rival. Especially on high speed, winding roads, the smooth, progressive power of the new 300 cc engine, assisted by a precision frame and top quality chassis, gives you the sort of sensations normally only found on a performance motorcycle.
The Nexus 300 introduces all the sporting vitality of the Nexus family into the middleweight scooter category. The Quasar 4 valve engine features liquid cooling and electronic fuel injection and develops a max torque of 23 Nm at the significantly low speed of 6000 rpm.
The result is smoother power, more decisive acceleration and a fuller response to the throttle. So whether you are riding around town, from one set of traffic lights to the next, or out for a weekend trip or long journey, the Gilera Nexus 300 has all the multifunctional flair you need, and combines the practicality of an urban commuter with the excitement and sparkle of a true sports scooter.
DESIGN. ITALIAN SPORTS PERFORMANCE.
The design of Gilera Nexus 300 combines top protection with typically Italian sports performance.
The Nexus 300’s modern lines focus on the front of the scooter to create a dynamic, sporty look while the slender, agile tail conveys a clear impression of the Nexus’ exuberant nature. The headlight cluster maintains the Gilera family look and gives the Nexus 300 a particularly penetrating profile. The dashboard incorporates analog and digital instruments with elegant red backlighting. On top of the generous front shield, the windshield can be adjusted in height to guarantee unrivalled comfort in all weather.
The seat has been designed using new materials for greater comfort and a perfectly ergonomic sitting position.
A broad and comfortable platform allows you to adopt three different riding postures and remain relaxed at all times. The passenger also has two generously sized fold-away footrests. The 34 litre under-seat storage compartment is big enough to hold two helmets (one full-face and one semi-jet), confirming the rational design of the Nexus 300. Because though conceived to delivery maximum riding thrills, the Gilera Nexus never forgets that it also excels as an urban scooter.
The Nexus 300 uses the same frame as the powerful 500 cc version, made entirely from high strength tubular steel. Rear suspension comes in the form of two robust and dependable shock absorbers with three spring preload settings for optimum damping and control. At the front the Nexus 300 is equipped with a hydraulic telescopic fork with 35 mm stanchions.
The braking system features a 260 mm disc and a two-piston floating caliper at the front and a 240 mm disc with a two-piston floating caliper at the rear.
The front wheel, 15” in diameter, is equipped with a 120/70 tyre. The 14” rear wheel boasts a sporty, large section 140/60 tyre.
