Maxi scooters such as the Meiduo M6 are becoming more and more popular. This popularity is increasing because of the touring ability, and the safety. These scooters are not like regular scooters. These scooters are big and really cool looking. These scooters tend to look quite round, or at least this one is. Here we will be talking about the Meiduo M6.
Meiduo is a Chinese scooter brand. They are quite well known for their high quality scooters. Meiduo is doing business in Bangladesh through Ambition Motors. They have released quite a few scooters in Bangladesh, which allowed them to gain quite a lot of popularity. The Meiduo M6 and Meiduo BWS are two of the most popular Meiduo bikes.
One of the main concerns of a biker or a scooter rider is the safety of the vehicle. This is due to the excessive amount of theft that occurs in Bangladesh. To tackle this problem the Meiduo M6 comes with a security alarm system built-in to the scooter. This is a revolutionary idea that puts the scooter in a higher value-for-money status.
One of the most common mistakes of beginners, and also some veterans, is to ride off with the side-stand down. This one particular mistake causes quite a lot of accidents every year. The Meiduo M6, in that case, has your back. The scooter comes with a side-stand switch, which does not allow the scooter to start if the side-stand is down.
The Meiduo M6 also comes with quite a lot of storage space. It has a small storage unit at the front to accommodate small belongings and a large under-seat storage unit. The under-seat storage unit has enough depth to hold a half helmet and more, and enough length to hold a school bag.
The Meiduo M6 comes in two different colors. They are:
Black with black seats.
Black with red seats.
All of the above colors come with no decals, but only some brandings.
As previously mentioned, the Meiduo M6 comes with a large body, which is intended to secure the rider from accidents. The scooter comes with a weight of 120kg, which is quite less when it comes to maxi scooters. This scooter comes with an 7.5liter fuel capacity, so the long rides out of town will be a problem, but short detours out of the urban jungle will not be much of a problem.
The length, width, and height of the Meiduo M6 are 1920mm, 735mm, and 1100mm. It also has a low saddle-height; however, the saddle is quite wide, which may cause problems for riders under 5’3” in the heavy traffic. The scooter also has a fairly average wheelbase, of 1320, so balancing this scooter won’t be much of a problem. The ground clearance of the bike is about 130mm, which is not much, and might affect the bike when it goes over a speedbump.
Engine and Transmission:
The Meiduo M6 comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, and 150cc engine. The engine is air-cooled. The scooter comes with only an electrical self-start mechanism and no kick-start. The engine provides 12.5KW of power at 8500rpm and 12.2Nm of torque at 5500rpm. The scooter may not be the best when it comes to fuel efficiency but is expected to have an average mileage of around 30kmpl.
The Meiduo M6 comes with a fully automatic transmission system. There is no gear shifting involved while riding this scooter. Although the scooter is expected to be very smooth with its acceleration on the road. The bike is expected to hit a top speed of about 100kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Meiduo M6 comes with a disc-drum brake setup. The front wheel has a single disc, which increases the braking efficiency significantly. The rear wheel gets a drum brake, which is a bid disappointing, as a disc at the rear would have done a lot of justice to the bike.
The Meiduo M6 has telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear. The front forks are expected to perform basically like most other forks in the market. The rear mono shock is fairly special, as most scooters don’t get mono shocks. The monoshock will give the scooter greater stability.
The Meiduo M6 also comes with alloy wheels and tubeless tires. The front tire is 90/90, which is expected to perform decently on the road. The rear tire is 100/80, which may not perform the best during high-speed braking or high-speed cornering.
The Meiduo M6 is a very powerful scooter. It has enough tricks up its sleeves to overwhelm a beginner rider. This scooter is intended for intermediate and veteran riders. The Meiduo M6 will also attract many youths of Bangladesh, due to its design and features.
The Meiduo M6 is a well built and well-designed scooter. It has enough pros and cons that can even make bikers wonder about shifting to scooters. The Meiduo M6 ticks most of the boxes for most people looking for a good scooter.
