FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX
Scramblers are one of the most multi-purpose bikes out there. To most people, scramblers are considered as classic-looking bikes that are designed in an old design. But scramblers have come a long way since their inception. Nowadays companies such as Husqvarna and FKM are developing more modern-looking scramblers with newer technologies. Scramblers such as the FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX and Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 are more modern looking and more unique than older scramblers. However, due to the cubic capacity limit (CC limit), we only get FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX in Bangladesh.
FKM is a Singaporean motorcycle manufacturer. FKM produces its bikes in China for production costs. FKM is being marketed in Bangladesh by Speedoz Limited. FKM bikes are designed in Italy, which is why their bikes are so attractive. Speedoz has brought two bikes by FKM in Bangladesh. They are FKM Street Fighter 165 and FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX. Both these bikes are praised by motorcycle enthusiasts in Bangladesh. The Street Scrambler is considered one of the most beautiful bikes in Bangladesh.
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX comes with a very informative instrument cluster. The instrument cluster consists of an odometer, RPM counter, speedometer, fuel gauge, and other necessary indicators as the basic information. As additional information, the bike has a clock, a gear position indicator, and a trip meter.
An interesting feature of the bike is the mobile connectivity of the bike. The bike can be directly connected to a mobile through Bluetooth using the FKM app. This feature allows the bike to directly display all features including power, torque, and fuel percentage of the bike directly to the user’s phone.
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX comes in two different colors. They are:
Both bikes have similar color schemes with similar decals. The Street Scrambler has been designed to look extremely aggressive.
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX comes with a very unique light setup. The headlight has a DRL running through the center. The headlight is a complete LED setup with two layers for high and low beam separate. The taillight is also LED, with a noticeable design. The LED indicators are designed to be minimalistic and simple.
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX is a scrambler that comes with leather looking split seats. The seat height of the bike is kept at 790mm, which is suitable for riders of 5’4” and above that. The bike also comes with a generous ground clearance of 180mm, which makes it safe from almost all speedbumps of Bangladesh. The Scrambler also comes with a fuel capacity of 9.5liters, which is not that great for long rides out of town but is more than enough for the city commute and occasional off-road scrambling.
The length, width, height, and weight of the FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX are 2018mm, 805mm, 1085mm, and 140kg respectively. The bike is averagely weighted, which makes it good for touring as the bike is stable at high speeds. The bike comes with a wheelbase of 1360mm, which will keep the bike stable while leaning at corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX has a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, and 164cc engine. The engine is fuel injected and air-cooled. The engine sends around 15BHP of power at 8000rpm, and 14.5Nm of torque at 7500rpm to the rear wheel. The torque will be enough to overtake on the highway, while the power is enough to scramble through off-road. The engine is quite fuel-efficient due to the fuel injection and is expected to have a fuel economy of around 45kmpl.
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX comes with a basic wet multi-plate clutch system. The bike comes with a 5-speed gearbox which is good but not great, as on off-road shorter gears are more useful to get out of sticky situations.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX has a dual disc brake setup. The front gets a 300mm dual axial caliper brake, which is expected to have decent performance. The rear has a 240mm disc brake. The rear brakes are also expected to have decent performance. The sad fact is that this bike does not have ABS or CBS. A CBS would have been quite useful for this bike.
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX comes with an inverted suspension, also known as USD (Upside down) suspension, at the front. The inverted suspension will be great for leaning on the roads; however, the jury is still out on whether the USD will perform well off-road. The rear has a mono-shock, which is expected to perform decently both on and off-road.
The wheels of the bike are quite good. The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX gets 110/70 and 140/70 section tires for both the front and the rear. The bike has been fitted with dual-purpose tires. The tires are the jack of all trades but are the king of none, which means the tires will perform decently in both the road and off-road, but will not be the best on either. The sizing of the tires is perfect.
The FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX is targeted towards the tourer and the occasional off-roader. The bike will be great for people who are looking for a good scrambler but is on a budget. The bike is not suggested for beginners, as this may be a tad bit overwhelming to beginners.
At this price range, there are not many scramblers to compare with the FKM Street Scrambler 165 SX. The only competitor of the Street Scrambler is the GPX Legend 150S.
