Keeway RKS 100 vs Dayang Runner Bullet 100 Core Comparison
So guys here Keeway RKS 100 is showing pretty good figure of engine performance rating in comparison with Dayang Runner Bullet 100. Here both the bike engine is four stroke air cooled engine.
Here fuel supplied by carburetor and engines are equipped with two valve. Both of them have same 4 speed gears and with same starting feature.
But significant issue is the RKS 100 engine is a square engine with the compression ratio of 9.5:1. The power and torque rating is also good as commuter. But one thing sure this engine needs pure fuel with at least RON87 which is not frequent in our rural and in most of the fuel station contamination is a viral issue.
So in such situation RKS 100 user will somewhat struggle due to fuel contamination problems. Hence they will face frequent maintenance & service issues and somewhat face bad performance of the bike as it is a commuter.
On the other side Dayang Runner Bullet 100 comes with longer stroke engine with 8.8:1 compression ratio. And this engine also delivers quite lower power and torque in comparison of RKS 100. But here Bullet 100 will run more hassle free in terms of fuel contamination comparing the RKS 100.
But we think Runner could have got more power figures by increasing its compression. If so then it might struggled for pure fuel and somewhat decreased its fuel efficiency which is the key feature of the bike, that’s it.
