Keeway RKS 125, the sturdy tiny bike to take on the rough
The new Keeway RKS is small but cute and a rider can sit on it and plant his feet on the ground with ease and its available in greatly affordable prices. The Chinese bike is far cheaper than the high profile models by a good margin of over £1,100 but can easily take on the back lanes and country roads with gusto at 50mph.Photo 1: KEEWAY
According to the news source, the bike is tiny and is sticky in riding during initial miles. It can cramp tall drivers with its size, make transmission tight with its gearbox and render the handling rough for the riders. This is the first experience one would go through riding the Keeway RK 125 but once it gets over the miles and the first service the bike is ready to take on the road with delight. Suspension is neither sublime nor subtle but is very fundamental and hard. You can feel the bumps on the bars and the seat but is not jarringly painful. In the initial stages the tires seemed to be riding in glue but become smooth after putting behind some miles.
The tires can ride through rough and polished surface by firmly planting themselves without wavering in their task. The Keeway RKS 125 can give you a flutter when you jam hard on the brakes because a tiny shimmy runs through the bike’s bars. The reason may be due to the tires being tubed. However, this does not escalate into anything dangerous.Photo 2: Keeway RKS 125, the sturdy tiny bike to take on the rough
The bike is not a class but it is a fighter and never baulk at steep climbs. As far as speed is concerned not much in the level of a Honda but it is dogged and determinedly move however it can match the high profile bike for power because it is standard for all 125s. One would find the gearbox a little grumpy while making a sudden stop because you have to come down 3 or 4 gears but it is expected in most bikes.
