Lifan KPR150 Review By Team BikeBD: Based On 1000KM Test Ride

June 17, 2015

Beginning of the year we made a list of few bikes that we thought will be launched this year in Bangladesh, some of you were eagerly waiting to see them rolling on our roads. We are also quite sure that Lifan KPR150 is one from our list. After the launch of Lifan KPR150 back in April this year we have been absorbing too much poking from you with various inquiries on KPR150. Rasel Industries Limited also responded very quickly on time & this time we have tested Lifan KPR150 for 1000 km under 2 weeks to present you with Lifan KPR150 Review By Team BikeBD  to answer a question, will this be the most affordable SPORTS BIKE in BD?

We Are Happy For:

  • Completely new & good looking sports model in our market. We hope for the reliability & durability considering its sibling KP150’s track record.
  • Very much stable on high speed, extreme cornering and extreme braking.
  • Comfortable seating both for rider and the pillion; and both suspension ensures comfort.
  • Very much effective aerodynamic body cowling, very much stable on heavy wind pressure even passing through cross wind with high speed.
  •  Aggressive acceleration even at higher gears.
  • The fluorescent bright LED projection head lamp DC operated and works nice even at dark highways.

We Have Noted Out:

  • KPR is the bike of nice acceleration at any gear but top speed is comparatively low where we have expected more.
  • Too much heavy to control at low speed, particularly moving through heavy traffic.
  • Steering turning radius is narrow. Turning and moving back is a hassle in narrow and curvy space.
  • Controlling on pebble, sand or mud is really a big deal due to weight and narrow steering radius and of-course for raw acceleration. New riders should be careful about that.
  • First gear is quite stiff; sometime it is hassle to get neutral position.
  • The front mud guard is way too small and in rainy season it often blocks the radiator grill with mud so you need to clean it often.
  • There is only one trip meter which unpleasantly gets zero after 999 kilometers. And there is no top speed recorder.
  • Horn is nice but there is no space to attach extra horn or signals.
  • Just like Lifan KP150, KPR150 still has the issue of overheating though as we have seen with KP that it isn’t too big a factor and creates no issues with the performance of the bike.

Wrap Up:

To sum up then Lifan KPR150 is a dramatic entertainment, full of elegance and power. What it does is that it walks a fine line between the technical brilliance and comfort of a Fazer & the sheer lunacy of R15 V2.0.

We have tried to disclose our test result just on finishing our test scheduled. We have tried our best to sketch out the real Lifan KPR150 before you. At the end we can say it’s a really a nice machine where there are only few Sports models available in our market but with extreme high price. We think if you are raw power seeker it’s a completely affordable package for you and no doubt with nice & attractive features.

We are hopeful for the reliability and durability of KPR150 considering the previous track record of Lifan KP150. Hope you are satisfied with our effort and please share your arguments with us.
