Back of The Name:
Now before the start, let us tell you a little about the background of the brand because we are unsure of how many of you are familiar with this brand name. Being an ardent fan of custom made choppers and a distributor of bike parts in the world market, Mr. Horse Zhang, the owner of Lifeng Group Co. Ltd. has instigated himself to manufacture choppers in 1990 (Source). His interest for sports, speed and especially his passion for horses since childhood has dragged him into this business.
Thus, he has initiated the process by inviting a designer and his friend from Australia to design the logo of Regal Raptor. Since then, afterwards Regal has found its forte in producing highly specialized, quality motorcycles by focusing on their Chopper, Cruiser, Sports and Custom motorcycles. Regal Raptor has established itself with distributors worldwide including: Bangladesh, USA, England, France, Singapore and many others. The company has expanded to a huge industry and has patented over seventy percent of their parts to more than twenty countries! This includes Bangladesh as well.

The wheels are all alloy with nice looking alloy spokes. The chopper is equipped with hydraulic disk brake both with front & rear wheel.

The wheelbase is also large and it is 1549mm which makes quite a big deal maneuvering the cruiser in our congested local roads. Though the weight is 160Kg but it will not put you on any hassle where the saddle height is 686mm.
The seat is quite large and seems comfortable. The double exhaust pipe with chrome coating really gives the feel to the rider riding something classic. The odo console, lamps, signals and the levers also designed to give the feeling to be classic.
