The motorcycle culture in Bangladesh has come a long way now. People used to scrunch their noses whenever a new Chinese motorcycle would make its way into the market. But in the last decade, people have been accepting and appreciating Chinese motorcycles. Manufacturers like Lifan, Haojue, and Victor R are now regularly releasing motorcycles in the market. Haojue KA, also known as Haojue KA 135, a 135cc commuting motorcycle, is also making some noise in the motorcycle industry.
Haojue, a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer, has been doing business in Bangladesh through Karnaphuli Groups. Haojue is considered one of the top motorcycle manufacturers in China. Haojue KA is a commuter bike by Haojue. The Haojue KA is a well-built, high-quality commuter bike.
The first and foremost feature of the Haojue KA is the design. The bike comes with a muscular design. The air scoops and the muscular tank makes the bike look nothing less than a 150cc bike. It has a lot of curves and edges on the bike, which makes it look very attractive.
The Haojue KA has a full halogen setup. The headlight is a large halogen bulb with a wide field of view. The indicators are still of the old design and the taillight is large enough to be noticed from quite a distance. The overall halogen setup is sufficient for this bike.
The Haojue KA comes in six different colors internationally. However, only four colors are available in Bangladesh. They are:
However, the colors may not be readily available at all dealerships. The bike has sporty decals and the colors of the decals match the color of the bike very well.
The Haojue KA comes with a very informative instrument cluster. The instrument cluster contains everything required by a rider and more. The instrument cluster has a speedometer, an odometer, and a fuel gauge. As additional features, the bike also comes with an engine oil indicator and a gear position indicator.
The Haojue KA is a large bike. But it has a seat height of 760mm, which is suitable for riders above 5’1” and below 5’7”, but the riders beyond that height might find it a bit difficult to ride on. The bike also has a ground clearance of 170mm, which is very suitable for Bangladesh. It also has a tank of 12liters, which ensures that the rider doesn’t run out of fuel very often in long rides.
The Haojue KA has length, width, height, and weight of 1960mm, 725mm, 1060mm, and 126kg respectively. The bike is of average weight, which will ensure adequate stability. The bike has a wheelbase of 1285mm, which is quite short, and that might make the bike somewhat unstable in corners. However, the bike is nimble and compact.
Engine and Transmission:
The Haojue KA comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 2-valve, and 135cc engine. The engine is carbureted and air-cooled. The engine pumps out around 10.7BHP of power at 8000rpm and 10.5Nm of torque at 6000rpm. Even though the bike is carbureted, the low power allows the bike to be quite efficient. Hence the bike has a mileage of around 45-50kmpl combined.
The Haojue KA has a wet multi-plate clutch system. It has a 5-speed gearbox, which will allow the bike to overtake other vehicles easily. The bike is expected to have a top speed of around 90-105kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Haojue KA has a disc-drum brake setup. The front has a disc brake which is quite commendable for a 135cc bike of this price. The front disc is expected to respond well. The rear brake being drum may perform well, but one should not get their hopes up, as it is a drum brake.
The Haojue KA has telescopic suspensions at the front, and the rear has spring-loaded twin shock-absorbing suspensions. The front suspension is expected to perform quite well. However, the rear suspension may not perform significantly well on bumpy roads.
The Haojue KA has alloy wheels. The front and rear wheels have 2.75/80, and 90/90 tires respectively. The front tire is perfect for the bike. However, the rear tire would have been better and performed at the top of its class if it was of 100 sections.
