For motorcycle enthusiasts, classic design is like smooth ice cream. Although the biking community has been exposed mostly to café racers and cruisers, there is a larger photo that the biking community has not been familiarized with. And to do that Keeway has come with its Keeway K-Light 150.
In 2019, Keeway and Aftab Automobiles Ltd introduced the Keeway K-Light, also known as the Keeway K-Light 150. Although the Keeway K-Light is being marketed as a Cruiser, it follows the design DNA of a Bobber. Regardless, the Keeway K-Light was made with the intention of cruising.
The main feature of the Keeway K-Light 150 is the looks of the bike. The Keeway K-Light 150 is a Bobber inspired bike. It is one of the few of its kind in Bangladesh. The design is a sight for sore eyes. The slightly extended front fender and lowered seat with the long tank make it a total head-turner. The bike will remind you of the Harley Davidson Fat Bob.
The Keeway K-Light 150 comes with a complete cruiser package. The switch gears have been given a cruiser treatment. The bike is made for comfort. The seat is fairly soft and extended to accommodate a pillion. The bike also has stretched foot-pegs to fit the ergonomics of comfort.
The Keeway K-Light 150 comes in four different colors.
There are two variants of the bike, Matt and Gloss. The Matt version only comes in Black and Silver. The Gloss version comes in Red and Blue. All of them only have the colors on the tanks and the rest of the bike is black for all.
As mentioned before, this Keeway K-Light 150 was made to be comfortable. The bike has a very low seat height, like every cruiser, at 715mm. But the low seat height also comes with stretched foot-pegs, which means, a tall person will not feel very uncomfortable with short seat. The bike is thin and easy to latch on to, so flicking the bike over from one side to another is easy.
The height, width, length, and weight of the Keeway K-Light 150 are 1050mm, 800mm, 2140mm, and 156kg. The bike is fairly heavy, so fair warning to new riders. And the bike has a very large wheelbase of about 1440 mm, which is there to compensate for the design factor and good balance as well.
Engine and Transmission:
The Keeway K-Light 150 comes with a cruising dedicated engine. The engine has 4-strokes, 2-valves, a single-cylinder, and 149.4cc. The engine is tuned to give 11.2BHP of power at 8500rpm and 10Nm of torque at 7500rpm. The engine uses a carburetor fuel feeding system and hence a mileage of 40kmpl is expected from it.
The Keeway K-Light 150 comes with a wet multi-plate clutch. It comes to a 5-speed gearbox. The gear shifter is also stretched to the front for cruising comfort. The power delivery over the gears is expected to be linear and smooth as well.
Brakes, Suspension, and Wheels:
The Keeway K-Light 150 comes with a full disc setup. The front has a 280mm disc and the rear is 240mm disc. The 240mm disc can be expected to good feedback during emergency braking. The rear 240mm disc may be smaller than the front but is larger than many discs used in other motorcycles, so the rear can also be expected to provide better braking performance.
The Keeway K-Light 150 comes with telescopic forks for the front suspension, which are expected to be suitable for cruising. The rear gets two gas-filled spring-loaded forks as the suspension. The rear suspensions have travel of only 53mm, so a heavy pillion will feel uncomfortable on the bike. But the rear shock absorbers are adjustable.
The Keeway K-Light 150 comes with 90/17 and 130/15 sectioned tires. With the rear tire being fat and thick, the bike is expected to be quite stable and good at cornering. The bike also has alloy wheels, unlike most cruisers that use spoke wheels, which is a plus point.
The Keeway K-Light 150 is not for a speed freak. The bike was not made to hit 120kmph on the highway, but rather it was made to cruise at 60-70kmph and to enjoy the ride. Nor is this bike made for the daily commuter, who uses the bike to commute to the office and back. The Keeway K-Light 150 is for the rider who wishes to enjoy the environment while riding through it.
In short, the Keeway K-Light 150 is a fantastic bike to cruise on and enjoy the ride. Keeway has done a fantastic job of building a good cruising bike.
