The K-Light 250V is Keeway's latest cruiser for the Indian market. This cruiser contains a lot of fascinating pieces, some of which are quite intriguing.
We've outlined five key things to get you acquainted with the bike:
The design of the K-Light 250V is evocative of the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob. With its feet-ahead riding position and general low slung shape, it resembles a standard cruiser. It has a macho look because to the broad drag-style handlebar and strong front end. With a seat height of 715mm, it is also suitable for shorter riders. Overall, the fit and quality are satisfactory.
The most appealing feature of this cruiser is its 249cc 4-valve V-Twin engine, which is the only quarter-litre V-Twin engine available in India. This old-school heart, on the other hand, provides a fairly poor output of 18.96PS and 19Nm. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed transmission linked to a belt drive, which is unique in the 250cc market.
An inverted fork up front and two shock absorbers at the back handle suspension chores. Braking gear includes discs at both ends, as well as dual-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard for enhanced safety.
The cruiser is outfitted with 16-inch alloy wheels and 120-section front and 140-section rear tyres. With a weight of 179kg, it is also a pretty heavy motorbike. With a decent ground clearance of 160mm, its underbelly should be safe on most roads.
The K-Light 250V has a tank-mounted semi-digital instrument cluster with a gear position indication, tripmeter, and fuel level indicator, as one would expect from a cruiser. The lighting system is all Light-emitting diode (LED). One of the most notable features of this cruiser is its enormous 20L fuel tank, which should provide adequate range for touring.
Availability, Expected Pricing, and Competitors
Bookings for the Keeway K-Light 250V have already begun at dealerships, with deliveries set to begin in June 2022. The K-Light 250V is expected to cost roughly Rs 2.6 lakh when it is released next week (ex-showroom).
The Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220, with its cruiser-styled styling and comparable power statistics, is the K-Light 250V's closest competitor. Despite having same capabilities, it is significantly less expensive at Rs 1,37,805 (ex-showroom Delhi). Aside from that, it would compete for the sub-400cc cruiser market with the Royal Enfield Meteor 350.
