Rasel Industries Limited (RIL) has added an all-new luxurious cruiser Lifan K19 in their 2021 product line. The cruiser is packed with some striking features along with gorgeous looks & design. Thereby we’re featuring the feature review of the motorcycle. So here comes our Lifan K19 Feature Review – Ride Free Feel the Freedom.
Lifan K19 Feature Review – Craftsmanship for Excellence
Lifan K19 is the all-new cruiser from Lifan Motorcycle in Bangladesh. Not even in Bangladesh, it also a newcomer in the international motorcycle market. Hence, it’s an all-new breed that featured completely trendy to match with this modern motorcycling era. Undoubtedly it designed to stand alone and appear unique in the crowd.
At the first look, it’s a fat boy with a muscled and bold body profile. It’s not puffed fake, but truly carrying necessary muscles those are part of its design ergonomics. Here the most lucrative parts are the headlamp, fuel tank, and the seat including the tail. But obviously, all the corners equally deserve attention.
Coming to the front, the headlamp is a compact assembly that united with the YOKE clump. It’s a double-layered LED setup that also includes LED DRL’s. The head top is completely naked, there is no instrumentation occupied. Rather the cluster mounted on the fuel tank. So the front view kept free and naked.
The one-piece pipe handlebar is one of the amazing parts of the bike. Literally, it’s wide, mounted sporty up-right, and featured with variable diameter. It can give the rider the feeling of being free ensuring superb handling comfort.
Coming to the fuel tank, it’s massive in size with a water-drop design. Holding the ODO at its top it crafted the fuel cap aside. Under the tank, both sides are crafted with heavy panel ribs that cover the cooling radiator and finishes at the side panels.
Here the seat is segmented. Both the rider and passenger units are heavily cushioned and wider. It literally can ensure comfortable cruising. Further, the tail end is open where the Matrix LED tail-lamp positioned under the wider rear-panel. Hence altogether the K19 is elegant & modern but yet flexible to ride free.
Frame, Wheel, Brake, & Suspension System
The Lifan K19 is designed on a steel frame including all cast-aluminum wheels. The rims are alloy rims featuring paired 10-spoke in each. The front rim is 16” and the rear one is 15” in diameter. Further, 110-90/16 & 130-90/15 tires are featured respectively in the front and at the rear. However, here both the tires are tubeless type.
In the braking setup, the front wheel featured with hydraulic disc brake. The disk is highly ventilated and is mounted to the left. Meanwhile, the rear setup is drum type. Not to mention maybe a bit frustrating. But obviously, it’s a deliberate feature considering the safety issues on Asian road conditions.
Coming to the suspension system, it’s a hydraulic telescopic-fork setup in the front. It positioned quite with a relaxed caster-angle. The angle is not that compact or extremely relaxed, hence it ensures better handling. Further, the suspension is well-calibrated to deal better with Asian region road conditions. Coming to the rear, those are spring-loaded double unit and kind of adjustable which’s really positive.
Riding, Handling, and Controlling –Feel Free and Ride
Lifan K19 is a full-size cruiser that somewhat had built under Harley’s Fatboy shadow. At the same time, it’s solid straighten handlebar also reminds the Hot Rod Chopper features. Furthermore, added Neo-Styling enhanced into a new design. Therefore, it featured better handling even in the mixed traffic situation on Asian roads.
Thus, in the riding, handling, and controlling features, K19 is holding a very competitive profile. We have mentioned earlier that the Caster-Angle is not that extreme nor compact. It just relaxed into a comfortable angle. Thereby, the turning of the bike is not that rigid or street bike-like agile. It just relaxed a bit along with 1500mm of wheelbase which will take a few more spaces to turn in.
Hence due to the caster, the front suspension should feel better responsive. And no doubt, adjustable rear double setup should do their jobs well. Hence along with cushy seating and a wider pipe bar, the riding should sense more fun and feel like a hawk.
Coming to the other features, the braking setup seems good enough but 160kg weight is quite a demerit. But overall lower saddle height and a convenient amount of ground clearance should tackle all the scams. Further 14-liter fuel capacity and all LED lighting setup no doubt can cut a few more points from the cons.
