Hello everyone, my name is Hridoy. I live in Tejkunipara, Farmgate, Dhaka. I’m 24 years old & very fond of biking. My first bike was Yamaha RX-115 (Japan). I like to travel freely & with my own Freedom Royal Plus. Bike helps a person to save time, cost & most of all to hassle free transportation. I love biking because,
- Saves time
- No worry for public transport
- No need to bear the hassle
- Saves cost of transportation
- Finally, it gives you freedom.
Usually I choose my bike by some cross checking’s of my own need, desire & ability. While choosing a bike I follow these simple steps; Need, Purpose, Specification & Budget.
Today I’m going to give you a review about my Bike which I’m using right now. It’s “Freedom Royal Plus” by Runner Motorcycles. I chose this bike by following the steps I mentioned. When I bought this bike, I was in shortage of budget because I bought it with my own savings. I chose this bike because it’s look make me attracted towards it. Also, fuel efficiency was a advantage because I have to run almost 40km everyday for my office & it is a 110cc bike.
This bike cost me 1,02,000 BDT. I bought this bike on installment by putting a down payment of 51,000 BDT with installments of 12 months with interest of 12%. They also offer without interest payment if you pay them within 3 months. I bought this bike from their showroom of Tejgaon.
When I was going to buy the bike, naturally I was excited not only for buying but also for buying it with my own money. I was so much happy. When the bike was being prepared for me I was there & looking what were they doing. Finally after the bike was ready I was very excited for my first ride. They start the engine & the sound was really amazing. I sat on the bike & what I felt during that time can only be understand by those who purchase bike all by himself. The first ride was a little bit uncomfortable for me as I was used to ride 150cc bikes usually. But after sometime I was very comfortable with my bike & was enjoying very much.
The purpose of buying this bike was my regular use as I have mentioned it earlier. Because nowadays in Dhaka there are severe traffic jam & bike is the only way to avoid this by a rich means. I am now putting a list of my bike’s features.

Many people says that, buying Bangladeshi bikes are like putting your money on water. I would deny that. Because when I ride my bike, I feel that I’m riding a very smooth & well engineered bike. I have serviced my bike three times till now. They offer free service as many times as you need till 10,000km(kilometer) or 1 year of purchasing (which comes first).
They also offer Engine warranty of 30,000km or 3 years as on same condition. After buying, I got mileage of 35-40 kmpl(kilometer per liter) before 2500km ride of my bike. But after 2500 km ride of my bike, now I’m getting 50-55 kmpl. It’s really needed for present situation of fuel price. I’m totally satisfied with it.
I always take good care of my bike. I wash it regularly if I’m not too much busy with my work. I Service it on due time & follow instructions that is told to be followed by the bike company. I change my bikes engine oil on every 1000-1200 km. For engine oil I use TOTAL-20W50 which is recommended by the company. It costs 440BDT & it’s non synthetic.
I have not changed a single part of my bike till now. Just when I took for servicing they found that there was a manufacturing defect on my bike’s fuel tank. So, they replaced the fuel tank & also replaced the battery because it was not giving proper backup for self start.
I did not modify any part of my bike. Just covered some parts like fuel tank, front mudguard & side with water color tape, also put rim stickers on both rims of wheel. I got top speed of 97 km per hour on Airport road till now. I could make it much but there was not enough scope on the road, but I’m sure this bike gives top speed more than 97 km per hour.
Three positive sides :
- Parallel engine gives a smooth acceleration
- Braking is good
- Stylish enough like 150cc bike
Three negative sides :
- Grip of front tire is bad, rear tire is not wide
- Parts of the bike are not very strong
- Ready pickup is bad, the engine gathers too much heat
I did not gave along tour yet because I could not manage a proper timing for that, but I have a wish to do a long tour with this bike. Hopefully it would give me a new experience on my biking career.
I’m very much satisfied with my bike. This bike is giving me proper support from the beginning. I want to tell everyone that, do not underestimate Bangladeshi bikes or the bikers who use it. We just have to gather faith that I’m a good biker & I can maintain my bike properly. If we can not promote products of our country then we will not be able to develop our nation.
