Scooters were once considered to be feminine. People used to be ostracized for using scooters. Times have changed, people have become more sensible and sexism has decreased significantly. Scooters are now considered unisexual and people with bikes or cars are buying scooters as their secondary vehicles, while others are buying them as their primary vehicles. One of the most affordable scooters is the Runner Skooty 110.
Runner Automobile Limited started its journey back in 2000. Since Runner has developed from a single company to a complete empire of industries. Runner in Bangladesh is known for being a motorcycle manufacturer and a motorcycle importer. Runner prides themselves in producing bikes that are “made in Bangladesh”. Runner has only one scooter in their complete lineup, and that is the Runner Skooty 110. The Runner Skooty 110 is a commuting scooter that is compact and has a lot of value for money.
The Runner Skooty 110 comes with a fully analog instrument cluster. The cluster has a speedometer, an odometer, a trip meter, and a fuel gauge. As it is a scooter, it does not have any manual gear shifting, hence the scooter does not require any gear position indicator.
The Runner Skooty 110 comes in three colors. They are:
The scooter has very simple yet sporty decals.
The Runner Skooty 110 has a very sporty and commuter-friendly design. The scooter is compact which enables it to fit through traffic and it is also quite sporty in terms of ride quality and design. The scooter looks like a small pocket rocket. The scooter also has a switch under the seat for security, as it completely turns off the scooter if the switch is turned off.
The best feature of a Runner motorcycle is the EMI option. You can avail EMI directly from Runner without the involvement of a third party. This makes Runner bikes more desirable and easier to attain. If you keep an eye on the Runner Youtube/Facebook page, you can also know about any offers regarding the EMI facility of Runner.
As previously mentioned, the Runner Skooty 110 comes with a compact body, which is intended to squeeze through the hectic city traffic. The weight of the scooter is not officially declared, but it can be assumed from the appearance that the scooter will be quite light. This scooter comes with a fuel capacity of around 5liters, so basically you have to top up your fuel tank now and then.
The length, width, and height of the Runner Skooty 110 are 1780mm, 770mm, and 1230mm. 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 low ground clearance of 150mm, which is highly unsuitable for Bangladesh, especially with a pillion. The wheelbase is only 1270mm, which is quite less and might make it unstable at high-speed cornering
Engine and Transmission:
The Runner Skooty 110 comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, and 104cc engine. The engine is air-cooled. It has electric and kick start both. The engine provides 6.97BHP of power at 7500rpm and 7Nm of torque at 6500rpm. The scooter may not be the best when it comes to fuel efficiency but is expected to have an average mileage of around 40-45kmpl.
The Runner Skooty 110 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 scooter is expected to reach a top speed of around 105kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Runner Skooty 110 comes with a disc-drum setup. The front wheel has a single disc, which increases the braking efficiency significantly. It comes with a drum brake at the rear wheel, which is quite common when it comes to scooters. If it had a rear disc as well, the braking of the scooter would have been at the top among scooters of this section.
The Runner Skooty 110 has regular telescopic forks, and spring-loaded shock at the front, and rear respectively. The front telescopic fork suspension is expected to have a decent response like most telescopic suspensions have. But since it is a scooter, the travel of the telescopic forks may not be as good as a motorcycle, and hence may the scooter might be vulnerable to potholes in the city. The rear spring-loaded “hydraulic” suspension may provide an adequate response in the city, but you shouldn’t get your hopes high.
The Runner Skooty 110 also comes with alloy wheels and tubeless tires. The front and rear tires are 3.5/10. The front is expected to perform decently on the road. The rear tire however is a whole different story, as keeping both tires of the same thickness makes two-wheelers somewhat unbalanced if they are leaning while turning.
The Runner Skooty 110 is a very forgiving commuting scooter. It is not very overwhelming for beginners. This scooter is intended for beginners and intermediate riders to ride around the urban jungle. The Runner Skooty 110 will also attract many youths of Bangladesh, due to its design and features and the fact that it is very much unisex.
The Runner Skooty 110 has competitions in both 100cc and 110cc segments. Here only scooters are mentioned, mopeds are not taken into account.
