Commuters and Bangladeshi bikers are like a match made in heaven. Bangladeshis are so into commuter bikes that if you were to go ahead and count the number of commuter bikes, it would take you more than a month to complete the task. Here at BikeBD.com, we pride ourselves on giving unbiased opinions about any bike. Hence, here we will be dissecting and overviewing the commuter bike by Dayun, the Dayun Plight.
Dayun is a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer. The motorcycle company has been operating in Bangladesh for quite a while now. Dayun is brought to Bangladesh by the Bangladeshi manufacturer Roadmaster. Roadmaster has brought countless Dayun motorcycles to Bangladesh over the years. One of the most notable commuter bikes of the present day is the Dayun Plight.
Dayun Plight is a commuter bike. The bike comes with a long single seat and a simple physical structure. The bike also has an upright handlebar, a small-sized tank, and big wheels. All these make the commuter bike the perfect commuter for Bangladesh because a commuter needs to be small and nimble to be able to squeeze through heavy traffic.
The Dayun Plight is expected to have a good mileage of around 55kmpl. The mileage is quite important for a commuter as the less the hassle of fuel, the more time saved. The mileage topped with a 10liter fuel tank makes sure that the rider won’t have to worry about filling the fuel now and then.
The Dayun Plight has a very average light setup. The headlight is complete halogen light with a wide reflector. The headlight is quite enough for the city commute, however for long rides out of town, the headlight might not be enough. Other lights, such as the taillight and indicators are also halogen bulbs, which are noticeable but not notable.
The Dayun Plight comes in two colors. Which are:
The red version comes with white and black sporty decals, while the black version comes with blue and white decals. The decals make the bike quite attractive.
The Dayun Plight is a small and nimble bike. It has a seat height of 765mm, which will be high enough for a rider of 5’3” to seat comfortably. The bike also has a ground clearance of 165mm, which will be suitable for most of the speedbumps of Bangladesh. It also has a tank of 10liters, which ensures that the rider has a sufficient amount of fuel to commute for long periods.
The Dayun Plight has length, width, height, and weight of 1980mm, 775mm, 1195mm, and 106kg respectively. The weight of the bike is quite low, which prevents the rider from getting tired while keeping the bike up in heavy traffic. The bike has a wheelbase of 1265mm, which is quite short, and that might make the bike somewhat unstable while leaning too much at the corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The Dayun Plight comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 2-valve, and 107cc engine. The engine is carbureted and air-cooled. The engine pumps out around 6.5BHP of power at 7500rpm and 7.9Nm of torque at 6000rpm. The power and the torque of the bike are quite low, which means that the bike is not very suitable for the highway. The bike is expected to have a high mileage of around 55kmpl.
The Dayun Plight has a wet multi-plate clutch system. It has a 5-speed gearbox, which will allow more torque to hit the wheels. The bike is expected to have a top speed of around 80-90kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Dayun Plight has a full drum brake setup. The front has brake is okay, but not the best, as a drum brake may not be highly suitable for emergency braking. The rear brake is also a drum, which makes the bike not very good for braking at high speeds. The braking is okay for braking at low speeds.
The Dayun Plight has telescopic suspensions at the front, and the rear has spring-loaded twin shock-absorbing suspensions. The front suspension is expected to hold up well. The rear suspension will be comfortable for the pillion and the rider.
The Dayun Plight has alloy wheels. The front and rear wheels have 2.50/18, and 2.75/18 tires respectively. The front tire is good enough for the bike. However, the rear tire would have been better and performed at the top of its class if it was a 3.00 or a 3.25 segment tire.
The Dayun Plight is a good bike for the regular commuter, as it is a bike with good mileage. The mileage, weight, and nimble body of the bike will be very suitable for the rider who wants to go for a simple and good bike.
