Powered by the 110.9cc, air-cooled engine, Maestro Edge is the sportier version of the regular Maestro featuring some additional styling elements to make it appear more masculine than the standard model. Even though Maestro Edge misses out on the disc brake variant and a more potent 125cc engine, it certainly has a charm that brings it at par with potential rivals in the 110cc scooter segment.
Priced at Rs 49,700 and 51,150 (ex-showroom, New Delhi) Maestro Edge is available in two variants - Self Start Drum Brake and Self Start Drum Brake Alloy respectively. With a handful of cosmetic additions and an all-new 110.9cc air-cooled engine, Maestro Edge is a sportier version of the regular model. Despite being powered by a new engine, there is a negligible difference in the power output of both the siblings. Dimensionally, Maestro Edge is longer at 1841mm and taller at 1190mm as opposed to 1780mm length and 1165mm height of the regular model. However, Maestro is wider than the new Edge with a minor difference of 15mm and lags behind when it comes to wheelbase.
Maestro Edge Looks
With a bolder look and sharper lines on the Edge, it is definitely a better looking scooter of the two. Other additions such as LED tail-lamp, attractive aero-ducts in the front and a modish silencer bring about a notable change in the overall looks.
