The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 is a sporty-looking commuter bike. Commuters in Bangladesh are deals, as they provide more value for money with their features, specifications, and prices. In a heavily dense traffic jam, you will not be able to count the number of commuters, as they flock like birds. Fairly new companies that launch in Bangladesh, such as UM, try to launch at least one commuter with their existing motorcycles. Hence with their two Renegades, UM Runner has launched the UM Runner Xtreet R 150.
UM is an American motorcycle manufacturer, that has been operating in Bangladesh through the means of Runner Automobiles Bangladesh. UM motorcycles are assembled in Bangladesh by Runner Automobiles Bangladesh. UM has received its popularity through releasing the UM Runner Renegade series of bikes. However, they have an underrated commuter in their arsenal as well, is the UM Runner Xtreet R 150.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 is a sporty commuter bike that comes with a very sporty look and very comfortable ergonomics. This bike comes with extended single-seat and upright handlebars which allow the rider to spend a lot of time on the bike.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 gets an exciting light setup. The headlight is a Halogen light with a huge reflector. The light is enough for the city commute, but not enough for the highway. The taillight of the bike is LED which looks very intriguing and interesting. The indicators are uniquely designed like rose petals, which give the bike a look that stands out. The interesting fact about the bike is that with the indicators the taillight of the bike also blinks.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 motorcycles come with a very informative instrument cluster. The instrument cluster comes with an odometer, trip meter, RPM counter (analog), speedometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, and other necessary indicators. This bike also has a gear shifting indicator, which is a great thing for the bike, as this allows the rider to understand when to shift the gears of the bike accordingly.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 comes in three different colors. They are:
- Black and Orange.
The decals of the bike are similar to each other. The decals are very sporty. The Black and Orange version of the bike gets a uniquely rugged decal.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 has a very tall seat height of 825mm, which is suitable for most people taller than 5’6”. People below that height might have difficulty while sitting. Even though the bike has a tall seat height, the bike has a ground clearance of merely 160mm. The bike also has a large fuel tank of 14.5liters, which will be extremely helpful during long rides out of town.
The length, width, height, and weight of the UM Runner Xtreet R 150 are 2060mm, 830mm, 1380mm, and 127Kg. As you can see, the bike is on the lighter side. The weight will not cause fatigue to the rider in heavy traffic. The bike is quite compact, as it is quite thin, it has an average wheelbase of 1380mm, which may be more than the other 150cc bikes, but is still very suitable, as it keeps the bike quite stable at high speeds.
Engine and Transmission:
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 has a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, and 149cc engine. It is carbureted just like its predecessor. The power of the bike gets a blow below the belt. The engine produces 111BHP of power at 7500rpm, and 10NM of torque at 5500rpm. The low torque of the bike will cause the rider difficulty to overtake any vehicle. The bike has a mileage of around 40kmpl.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 comes with a basic wet multi-plate clutch system. The bike also comes with a 5-speed gearbox. The top speed of the UM Runner Xtreet R 150 is expected to be around 115kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 comes with a full disc braking system. The front disc brake is expected to perform well. Having a rear disc brake at this price range is a great addition to the bike. The rear disc brake is expected to perform decently as well.
The suspension of the bike is a whole new chapter. The front gets telescopic forks as the suspension and the rear gets a mono-shock suspension. The test ride revealed that the front suspension is not as responsive as required, however, the rear gas-charged suspension is great for both solo riding or with a pillion.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 gets an alloy wheel setup. The rear wheel of the bike now has a 120/80-section rear tire, which is quite thin and very disappointing for the bike. The front tire is a 2.75/18-section front tire, which is also quite thin. The bike would have been better at stability and cornering if the front tire was 3.25/17 and the rear was 130/70-section.
The UM Runner Xtreet R 150 was made for the new generation of commuters. This bike is for people who want a stylish but sensible bike. This is not for the people who are street Rossis, but for the people who want a sporty looking bike. This is a good bike with a good but less powerful engine.
The competitions according to our test rider will be quite a few.
- Race Fiero 150FR.
- Benelli TNT 150.
- Lifan KPS 150.
