When we talk about scooters, we mostly think of the old Vespas that our grandfathers used to ride or the Indian scooters that are advertised as “Female bikes”. But scooters have come a long way since then. Some scooters now have more power than traditional motorcycles. The Keeway K Blade 125 is one of those scooters.
The Keeway K Blade 125 is a 125cc scooter. The scooter was produced in such a way that it can put most 125cc bikes to shame. It is a powerful scooter and was introduced by Keeway Bangladesh and is presently being marketed by Aftab Automobiles Ltd.
The first thing that you notice about the Keeway K Blade 125 is the headlights. There is a saying, “Looks that kill”. The headlight design is a practical example of the saying. The looks of the scooter are very much enhanced by the headlight design. The indicators are no different. The scooter comes with a full LED setup. Which means, regardless of where or when you ride, visual would not be a problem.
The second factor of the design is the overall aesthetics of the Keeway K Blade 125. It looks nothing like a typical scooter. It is edgy, sporty, aerodynamic, all while maintaining the necessary comforts of a scooter. It also has a muffler design which puts the TVS Apache RTR 4V to shame.
The Keeway K Blade 125 comes in extremely attractive colors. They are:
- Matte Blue.
- Matte Black.
- Glossy Red.
The matte black color comes with a hint of green to increase the aesthetic design of the scooter.
The Keeway K Blade 125 has a low saddle height of 750mm. This height majorly supports people under 5’10” and may become a bit uncomfortable for people taller than that, due to the small leg-rest area. The scooter also has an exceptionally small tank of only 4.9liters of fuel storage capacity. This renders the scooter unsuitable for long rides.
The length, width, height, and weight of the Keeway K Blade 125 are 1820mm, 700mm, 1060, and 97kg respectively. The scooter is not as heavy as its competitors, which makes it easier to control than most scooters. It also has a fairly average wheelbase, of 1280mm, which is good for handling and turning.
Engine and Transmission:
The Keeway K Blade 125 comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, and 124cc carburetor engine. The engine is air-cooled. The engine pumps out around 8.4BHP of power at 7500rpm and 9.2Nm of torque at 6000rpm. The scooter is quite powerful, yet, the fuel efficiency is still top-notch at about 50kmpl. The scooter is expected to reach a top speed of around 90kmph.
The Keeway K Blade 125 comes with a fully automated gear system. The gear shift is not necessary and the clutch lever is replaced with a rear-wheel brake. The scooter is fully controlled by hands.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Keeway K Blade 125 comes with a disc-drum setup. The front wheel gets a disc brake. The disc brake increases the braking performance of the scooter significantly. The rear brake being drum is not the best, but is enough for a scooter of this power. The front brake being disc might become the primary brake for most riders.
The Keeway K Blade 125 has telescopic forks at the front and the rear is a mono coil-spring oil-damped suspension. The front suspension may not be the best, as it has a stroke of 55mm, which makes it highly vulnerable to bumps. The rear suspension may provide ample response as it has an 82mm stroke, hence a pillion will be comfortable on the scooter.
The Keeway K Blade 125 comes with alloy wheels. The front and rear wheels receive 80/80 and 100/90 tires respectively. The tires may be good for moderate speed maneuvers, as emergency braking while riding at high speeds may cause the tires to skid on roads.
As previously mentioned, the Keeway K Blade 125 is not the most suitable scooter for highway rides. The Keeway K Blade 125 is a great scooter for youngsters, who only want a scooter for commuting. Regular rides to university or around town will be fun and easy with this scooter.
The Keeway K Blade 125 has a few good competitors in the Bangladeshi market. They are:
- Vespa Notte 125.
- Suzuki Access 125.
- Znen Falcon 8.
- Haojue Lindy 125.
All in all, the Keeway K Blade 125 is a sporty and reliable scooter that has the capability of putting most other scooters and bikes out of business. It is a scooter that serves its purposes properly and does justice to scooters. Whether you should buy a Keeway K Blade 125 or not, should be a choice that you have to make.
