FKM Street Fighter
It doesn’t matter which part of Bangladesh you are from; you will know about the naked sportbike culture. The number of naked sportbikes available in Bangladesh has reached so high that the number is now uncountable. A new player in the naked sportbike sector is the FKM Street Fighter. The FKM Street Fighter is a fairly new bike in the market that has baffled everyone with its spec defying features and Yamaha MT09 inspired looks.
FKM is a Singaporean company. The bikes of FKM are designed in Italy, which explains the aggressive and attractive look. FKM is marketed in Bangladesh by Speedoz Limited. There are two bikes by FKM in Bangladesh. One of the bikes is the FKM Street Fighter. The bike has received an excessive amount of praise as soon as it hit the market, due to the high quality and good handling.
The FKM Street Fighter comes with a complete LED light setup. The headlight is very similar to the old version of the MT09. The headlight has two different units for the high and low beams. The taillight is also LED, but the size is considerably large which makes it very visible. The LED indicators of the bike are quite small and minimalistic, which gives the bike a clean look.
The FKM Street Fighter comes in three colors. They are:
The blue version of the bike has almost no decals, which doesn’t decrease the aggressive look at all. The yellow and the red versions come with more aggressive decals, which only adds to the beauty of the bike.
The FKM Street Fighter comes with a very informative instrument cluster. The instrument cluster has a speedometer, an odometer, a trip meter, a fuel gauge, a gear position indicator, an RPM counter, and other necessary indicators. Although there is a lot of information being displayed in the instrument cluster, the instrument cluster is quite minimalistic and attractive.
The FKM Street Fighter also comes with Bluetooth connectivity, which allows the bike to directly connect with the rider’s phone. There is an FKM app that allows you to see the bike function in real-time. Every bike is fitted with an identification function that allows it to connect to the Bluetooth of a phone using the FKM app.
The FKM Street Fighter comes with an average seat height which is suitable for people above the height of 5’3” to easily ride the bike. The bike also has a very upright handlebar which makes this bike very suitable for riding over a long period. The bike has a 17liter fuel tank which is more than enough for long rides out of town.
The FKM Street Fighter comes with a length, height, width, and weight of 2018mm, 1085mm, 805mm, and 140kg respectively. The bike is quite compact, however, a wheelbase of 1360mm can be said to be very much longer than average. This makes the bike quite stable while leaning in the corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The FKM Street Fighter comes with a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, and 165cc engine. The engine is fuel injected and air-cooled. The power and torque figures are on par with its competitors, and even greater than a few of them. The engine pumps out around 15BHP of power at 8000RPM, and 14.5Nm of torque at 7500RPM. The power is sufficient for the bike to ride on the highway comfortably. The bike will have a fuel efficiency of around 40kmpl.
The FKM Street Fighter comes with a wet, multi-plate clutch system. The bike has a 6-speed gearbox, with speed being pumped out even in the 6th gear. The bike has an estimated top speed of around 120kmph.
Brakes, Suspension, and Wheels:
The brakes of the FKM Street Fighter are also quite good. The front has a 270mm disc brake while the rear has a 220mm disc brake. The front brake is more than enough for a rider to brake smoothly. The bike also has CBS, which means the rear brake will activate both the front and the rear brake. This makes emergency braking better.
The FKM Street Fighter has Upside-down telescopic forks at the front while the rear has a mono-shock suspension. The front suspension may not be the best for the cities of Bangladesh, as USD suspensions are famous for being on the stiffer side to accommodate cornering. The rear suspension is expected to cover up for the front forks. The front suspension, however, will perform adequately at the corners and will keep the bike stable.
The new FKM Street Fighter has a very average tire combination. The bike comes with a 100/70 and 130/70 setup for the front and rear wheels respectively. The tires are not exactly perfect for the power figure of this bike. Had the rear tires been 140/70, then this bike would have had a perfect set of tires for both leaning at the corners and having good contact with the ground during braking.
The FKM Street Fighter has quite a few competitors in the market presently. They are:
- Runner Bolt.
- Benelli 165S.
- Lifan KPR 165R.
- Keeway RKR 165.
The FKM Street Fighter is for the street Rossis. The bike has enough power and torque to overwhelm any kind of rider. This bike is for speed lovers and long tourers. This bike will not be suitable for new riders, as the power and torque may be beyond their control. This bike is for any intermediate rider who wishes to upgrade to a more powerful bike but is on a budget. This bike will attract the young generations of the country.
Availability: Available at all FKM dealerships across Bangladesh.
FKM Street Fighter is a bike that is exceptionally made and beautifully designed. The bike is stylish, powerful, and inexpensive, which makes it easily attainable. The FKM Street Fighter is a fighter that will not give up easily in the market.
