Bangladeshis had a polarizing response to the Taro GP 1, as well as the Taro GP 1 Special Edition. The special edition is not just a bike with different decals from the Taro GP 1, it comes with different specifications as well.

Here we will be discussing the Taro GP 1 Special Edition and consequently, we will understand how it is different from the Taro GP 1.

Taro is a Chinese motorcycle manufacturer, who are popular for their 400cc Taro GP 1 bike, which is intended to look like a MotoGP bike. Due to the cubic capacity (cc) limit, Bangladeshis only get the variants of the bike that are below 165cc. Taro Bangla, a daughter concern of the Sikder Group of industries, is the official distributor of Taro Motorcycles in Bangladesh. 

 

Key Features:

The Taro GP 1 Special Edition also has a loud noisy exhaust, which is similar to the Taro GP 1. This bike has had a similar response from the public compared to that of the Taro GP 1. The Taro GP 1 Special Edition is both similar and different from the Taro GP 1.

Taro GP 1 comes with a fully faired body. The body looks very similar to MotoGP motorcycles. The fully-faired body comes with a clip-on, a wide tank, and a good windshield. The Taro GP 1 Special Edition is Special in only one version unlike the Taro GP 1. The special edition is a combination of Orange, Black, and White. The combination of these colors makes the bike look quite similar to the Repsol Honda bike.

The Taro GP 1 comes with a very informative instrument cluster, however, the instrument cluster is a bit backdated, as in it is semi-digital. The instrument cluster has an odometer, a trip meter, a speedometer, an RPM counter (analog), and other necessary information. The instrument cluster also has a digital gear position indicator.

 

Physical Attributes:

The Taro GP 1 Special Edition comes with a very big physical appearance similar to the Taro GP 1. The bike also has a split seat setup with a set of raised clip-on. The bike has a saddle height of 800mm, which will be suitable for riders above the height of 5’4”. The ground clearance of the bike is around 180mm, which allows the rider to conquer most of the speedbumps of Bangladesh. The bike also has a fuel capacity of 13.5liters, which is great for going on long tours.

The length, width, height, and weight of the Taro GP 1 Special Edition are 2050mm, 720mm, 1155mm, and 150kg respectively. The wheelbase of the bike is around 1422mm, which is quite long. The long wheelbase of the bike takes away the nimbleness of the bike and makes the bike a bit difficult to maneuver in heavy traffic. Although, the weight and the wheelbase both will keep the bike very stable at high speeds and corners. 

 

Engine and Transmission:

The Taro GP 1 Special Edition comes with a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, and 155.2cc engine. The engine is liquid-cooled and is fitted with a carburetor. The engine pumps out a staggering 16BHP of power at 8500rpm and 14.5Nm torque at 8000rpm. The torque is average, but kicks in quite late, hence the bike has a slow acceleration compared to other sportbikes available in Bangladesh. The bike is expected to have a mileage of around 38kmpl. 

The Taro GP 1 Special Edition has a basic wet multi-plate clutch system. The bike does not get any form of a special clutch system, such as a slipper clutch. The bike is expected to have a top speed of around 130kmph. 

 

Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:

Taro GP 1 Special Edition has an improved braking system, compared to the Taro GP 1. The bike has a dual 300mm front disc setup. The front brakes are connected with ABS, which allows the brake to have better and smoother braking.

The rear brake is a 240mm standard disc brake. The front and rear of the bike are connected using CBS, which means, if the rear brake pedal is engaged, both the front and rear brake are activated.

The Taro GP 1 Special Edition comes with telescopic forks at the front and a gas-charged mono-shock at the rear. The front forks of the bike are upside-down (USD), which makes it more suitable for leaning at corners.

However, the bike will struggle a bit due to the speedbumps of Bangladesh. The rear suspension of the bike is expected to have an adequate response. 

The Taro GP 1 Special Edition has alloy wheels. The front and the rear have a combination of 110/80 and 150/70 tires respectively. The overall tire combination is the thickest in Bangladesh. The thick tires give more confidence to the rider while leaning at corners. 

 

Target Audience:

Even though the Taro GP 1 Special Edition is quite forgiving due to its specifications, it is still not suggested for beginners. This bike is also not suggested for regular commuters, as the large body of the bike will cause some difficulty for the riders to squeeze through heavy traffic.

This bike is suggested for the veteran street Rossis, who need a bike to occasionally do short runs at high speed. This will also be good for the riders who need a good bike for touring.

Taro GP 1 Special Edition has very few competitors in its segment.

  2. Aprilia GPR 150.
  3. Honda CBR 150R.
