For some people biking is a luxury, for some it is passion, and for some, it is a need. For an average person, who wishes to buy a motorcycle for the convenience of commuting, a sportbike that costs 3 lacs is too much. Even a bike of 1.5 lac is too much for that person. And for that person, the Roadmaster Velocity was made.
The Roadmaster Velocity is a 99.71 cc commuter bike. This bike was made to be a cost-friendly bike that an average middle-class person can buy. Roadmaster tried their best to do the bike justice.
The Roadmaster Velocity comes with a fully digital speedometer/odometer. The speedometer shows all the regular properties and more. It shows a gear indicator, which is quite important for amateur riders.
The Roadmaster Velocity was designed to look good. Even though it is a small bike, it looks exceptionally good. It has jetted indicators, which are attached to the air scoops on the two sides of the tank. Those air scoops are also extended downwards to look sport, and they do the job well. The bike also has a big exhaust design. The exhaust makes the bike look more muscular.
The Roadmaster Velocity gets a 7-layer silica-coated paint job. This makes the bike look extremely sleek and glossy. Apart from being glossy it also looks fairly sporty. The Roadmaster Velocity comes in three colors:
The Roadmaster Velocity is fairly low when you throw a leg over it. People of around 5’2” can also swing a leg over it and ride off. The bike comes in a thin body. And the thin body allows the bike to be held tightly when riding or cornering. It also has a fairly short wheelbase, which does bring a question of balance during rides.
The Roadmaster Velocity has a height, width, length, and weight of 1270mm, 840mm, 2090mm, and 120kg. As you can see the bike is very light. And a lightweight bike means that you can flick the bike very easily and swiftly.
Engine and Transmission:
The Roadmaster Velocity comes with a Euro 2 classified engine. This means that the bike is somewhat efficient and environment friendly. The Roadmaster Velocity has a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, 2-valves, and 99.71cc engine. The bike is also Air-cooled, which may be backdated, but the decision was taken to keep the price down. It also has good power and torque figure. The engine gives out 8.4BHP of power at 8000rpm and 7.5Nm of torque at 5000rpm.
The bike comes with a wet multi-disc clutch. It also comes with a 4-speed gearbox, which may be a bit boring, but fewer gears mean that turning is easier and there are longer gears with good engine braking ability.
Brakes, Suspension, and Wheels:
The Roadmaster Velocity comes with a disc-drum setup. That means the bike has a disc in the front and a drum in the rear as brakes. The front disc is quite small, which may cause sudden jerks when applying the brakes at high speed. The rear being drum makes it unsuitable for high-speed emergency braking, but for moderate speed maneuver or cruising will be fine.
The Roadmaster Velocity has telescopic forks in the front and that already tells you that going through bumpy roads won’t be very difficult. The rear has two gas-filled spring-loaded suspension forks. The rear suspension will not work the best in bumpy conditions, but will just be okay.
The bike comes with standard tread tires. The wheels are alloy based. The front and rear have 2.75/18 against 3.25/18 as the tire sizes. The rear tire is fairly fat and will help riders hit the corners with more precision and will also give confidence to the riders on the road.
The bike was made for the regular commuter with a small budget. As this bike is quite stylish and good looking, it will attract many youngsters and office goers who wish to buy a bike without burning a hole in their pockets.
Price and Availability:
Price: 94,900 Taka
Availability: The Roadmaster Velocity is available at all Roadmaster Dealerships in Bangladesh.
The Roadmaster Velocity is overall a satisfactory commuter, which can meet the expectations and desires of a regular commuter. It is a bang for the buck. Even though it does have some drawbacks, but they can be ignored considering the price and purpose of the bike.
