The Roadmaster Prime 80 is an 84.41 cc commuter bike. Roadmaster made this bike, keeping the average income of a regular Bangladeshi in mind. Roadmaster received a good response from the biking community with this bike, as it enables more people to buy bikes.

Roadmaster Prime 80 – Key Features
The Roadmaster Prime 80 comes with a special feature that even high-end bikes don’t get, a USB port. Running out of the battery of the phone in the middle of nowhere is a scenario, which bikers often find themselves in. Having a USB port eliminates that problem. And the best thing about the USB port is that, unlike most aftermarket ones, this one comes with a waterproof cap.
The dash of this bike is probably better than most bikes available in the market. It comes with a Gear position indicator, which is a luxury and a plus point for a new rider. It also comes with a battery health meter, which is very important for a bike. The rest of the functions are all analog and are quite average.
The bike comes with simple yet sleek graphics. If you look at it from a distance, it might look like one of the small classic motorcycles that we all love. It comes in one single color, which is red.
The Roadmaster Prime 80 has a fairly low seat height, which allows riders even of 5’1″ to ride the bike fairly easily. The bike is also slim and lightweight, which ensures that the bike is easily maneuverable. The bike also has an upright pipe handlebar, which means the rider will not have any shoulder pain either.
The Roadmaster Prime 80 has a height, width, and length of 1210 mm, 860 mm, 1930 mm.

Brakes, Suspension, and Wheels
The Roadmaster Prime 80 has drum brakes for both the front and the rear. This does seem a bit boring or backdated, but an 84.41cc bike is fine with drum brakes. Also considering most riders will be very new riders, they will not get overwhelmed and will have a good learning curve.

The interesting thing is the rear tire treads which are semi-off-road. So, if you have to ride through rain and mud, that won’t be much of a problem.
Roadmaster Prime 80 has quite a competition in its segment.
