Keeway Superlight – Specification, Breakdown and Analysis
Overview: For the past years the motorcycle industry in Bangladesh have grown by a good margin with many segments of motorcycle coming in Bangladesh, covering from off roaders, commuting & sports bike segments. Among them is a segment called ‘cruiser’ bikes and currently in market there aren’t many options to pick from but Keeway Superlight 150 is one of fastest growing motorcycle in this segments. The bike is a perfect combination of style and elegant, this bike is usually design for people who want to cruise on the road at a speed between 60-70 km/h comfortably and savior the moment instead of attacking the corners!
Design: Fuel tank of the bike is huge and carries around 16 liters of fuel. Noise of the bike is bit dirty not comforting. Speedoz only bring the Matt Black color of the bike and we are not sure why it doesn’t come out of other colours. Headlight of the bike is big & round in shape & halogens, alloy wheels are there but the tires are not tubeless which is a bit odd.
Headlight is powerful enough for both city & highway ride, I tested the bike on the highway and found that even though the light scattered a bit but the position of the headlight is good enough for long distance travel. Its fuel capacity is 15 litre.
Engine & Transmission: The bike is powered by a 149.3 cc air cooled engine which gives 12.1 BHP & 11 NM which on paper don’t sound much but as I mentioned before this is a bike made more for comfort rather performance. The power is transferred to the rear of the engine by 5 speed transmission which is soft to change with.
Body, Brake & Suspension: : Keeway Superlight weight is 134 kg & with 130 rear section tyres it gives a fantastic balance to the machine. I admit in the city going through some small space is difficult but the thing which really makes me unhappy that the handle of the bike is straight unlike curve towards the rider like a traditional cruisers. It has a bore of 62.0mm and 49.5mm. Its length 2260mm, width 800mm, height 1110mm and wheel base is 1440mm. This bike ground clearance is 120mm and seat height is 730mm.
Switch gears are a mess; even though the quality is good but they are positioned all over the place and it might take a week or more to get used to it. There are no pass light or engine kill switch for the bike, it seems alike Fat Boy 2000 Model of Harley Davidson, speedometer is two analog units to tell you the speed and rev counter also the fuel gauge is mounted on the fuel tank itself to give a bike more classy look. During night time the speedometer doesn’t get too much light to illuminate the rider with more information.
