The length, width, height, and weight of the Lexmoto Hawk 150R are 1925mm, 750mm, 1075mm, and 135kg respectively. The bike is quite light, which makes it very nimble at corners and easy to flick from one side to another quite easily. The bike has a wheelbase of 1320mm, which is good enough for cornering.
Engine and Transmission:
The Lexmoto Hawk 150R comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, and 150cc engine. The engine is carbureted, and oil-cooled. There is no information about the power and torque figures of the bike, but the torque is expected to be around 14Nm and the power is expected to be anywhere around 15-16BHP. Since the bike is carbureted, it can be expected that the bike will have a fuel economy of a minimum of 30-35kmpl.

The front brake of the bike is expected to perform decently as the disc is quite big. The rear is a basic disc brake. The rear brake increases the braking profile of the bike.

The Lexmoto Hawk 150R comes with upside-down suspensions at the front and a basic mono-shock at the rear. The USD suspension at the front is good for leaning at the corners, but the bike is not very friendly when it comes to face-to-face with a speed bump.
