Keeway, a Chinese motorcycle manufacturing company, has made a good name for itself in the Bangladeshi market. People have taken Keeway to be a household brand now. Keeway has released several bikes of good quality in Bangladesh, one of them being Keeway RKS 150. The Keeway RKS 150, also known as Keeway RKS 150 CBS now, is a bike marketed in Bangladesh by Aftab Automobiles Ltd. According to Keeway Bangladesh, it is a naked sportbike. Although it does not tick all the boxes as a sportbike, it is a good bike for commuting. Around 2017 the rendition of the Keeway RKS 150 was introduced to the Bangladeshi public as the Keeway RKS 150 CBS. Regardless, it is still known as the Keeway RKS 150.  

Key Features:

The first key feature of the Keeway RKS 150 is the dashboard. The dashboard contains everything a rider needs on a day to day basis and more. The dashboard comes with a digital display, an analog rpm gauge, and a set of indicator LEDs. The digital display shows the time, gear position, the odometer, and the amount of fuel. The second key feature of the Keeway RKS 150 is the light system of the bike. The bike comes with a well-designed headlight, indicators, and a rear light. The indicators are LED, thin, minimalistic, and sporty, unlike most bulky indicators. The rear light is small and quite lite. The headlight however reminds you of the old Duke 125.  The decals of the Keeway RKS 150 was revised when the CBS version was released. The new bike comes with new, improved, and sporty decals, unlike the old one. The new decals make the bike look quite strong and induce confidence. The Keeway RKS 150 comes in four colors now. They are: 
  1. Red.
  2. Black.
  3. White.
  4. Blue.
All of the aforementioned colors have the same kind of decals.  

Physical Attributes:

The Keeway RKS 150 is a short bike with a short saddle height of 760mm. The bike is suitable for people who are shorter than 5’7”, as people taller than that would have a hard time adjusting to the bike. The bike also has a 16liter fuel capacity, which is probably the largest of this segment.  The length, width, height, and weight of the Keeway RKS 150 are 2105mm, 795mm, 1055mm, and 129kg respectively. The bike is one of the lightest bikes in the 150cc segment, which makes it easy to flick and swerve. The bike also has a wheelbase of 1340, which is a perfect wheelbase for this segment of bikes. Although the length may be a problem when going around traffic. The bike is also thin and easy to grasp with two legs.  

Engine and Transmission:

The Keeway RKS 150 comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, and 148cc air-cooled engine. The engine is of Euro-3 grade, which means air pollution by this bike will be significantly less. There are both self and kick-start of the bike. The engine pumps out a maximum of 13.8BHP of power at 9500rpm and 12.8Nm of torque at 7500rpm. The maximum torque and power kick in quite late in this bike, which makes it rather fuel-efficient. Although it is a carburetor engine, it consumes 35-38kmpl of fuel in the city and around 40-42kmpl on the highway.  The Keeway RKS 150 comes with a basic wet, multi-plate clutch. The bike also has a 5-speed gearbox, which has a linear power delivery to the engine. The gear shifter has both front and rear pedal to help with shifting and to avoid damage to shoes.  

Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:

The Keeway RKS 150 comes with a dual-disc setup. The front and rear both have disc brakes. The front brakes work well. The rear brake comes with a CBS system, which means the rear brake pedal operates the front and the rear discs. The CBS works below average during the first 500km but works better after that. The brakes are satisfactory but could have been better. The Keeway RKS 150 comes with telescopic forks at the front as suspension. The front suspension works well on bumpy roads. The rear suspension is an adjustable mono-shock suspension. The rear suspension is initially a bit stiff but can be adjusted to satisfaction. The Keeway RKS 150 comes with alloy wheels. The front and rear wheels have 90/90 and 120/80 section tires. The rear tire being a bit thin, the bike may skid during emergency braking situations. The tire would have been better if they were 130/80.  

Target Audience:

The Keeway RKS 150 was made for the young new riders in the block. The bike may not be the best for highway rides but is good for regular commutes and rides around the city. For new riders, this bike is forgiving. With CBS, adjustable rear suspension, and low saddle height, this bike is perfect for new riders who are still learning. They will also not get overwhelmed when riding this bike, as the power of the bike is low.

The Keeway RKS 150 has a few competitors and they are capable of giving this bike a run for its money.
  1. Bajaj Pulsar 150 series.
  2. Apache RTR 150 series.
