Atlas Zongshen ZS125-68 Review
Atlas Zongshen is a chinese motorcycle manufacturer but their product which are used to be imported in Bangladesh are assembled in Bangladesh. They have not won the market of Bangladesh but they are trying. They have number of models of products which have released in the country already but unfortunately they are not getting so popular. The usage of this brand is still poor. To make themselves as one of the established Chinese brand in Bangladesh, they have still a long way to go. Now, they are working to unleash some standard bikes for all types of users considering in Bangladesh.
Recently, Atlas Zongshen has released a 125 cc bike where 125 is a very popular segment in Bangladesh. There are not many such category bikes are available in market and so, it would face considerable low competition. There are just few number of renowned 125 cc bikes are found in the market where Hero, Bajaj, TVS, Honda are dominating the market and their price range are just bit higher than Chinese bikes. So, Atlas Zongshen ZS125-68 might get a chance to increase their popularity though their product’s price is more than expected and so, company should reduce price a little and make it more acceptable.
Design & looks: Atlas Zongshen ZS125-68 is a standard bike but pretty different looking one. It has completely unique and strong mud guard attached with long seating position. Considering it’s fuel tank shape, it can be compared with dirt bikes and like that it’s fuel tank is pretty smaller. But wheels are alloy and there is no chain cover included which gives it a little sports look. The grab rail is long and has pretty space to carry small bag there. Overall, it looks almost good.
Engine performance: Atlas Zongshen ZS125-68 is powered by 124.9 cc engine which generates 8 kW @8500 rpm max power and 9.2 Nm @ 7000 rpm max torque. Top speed of the bike would be 90 km per hour reportedly. However, it’s engine is air cooled and OHC technology added. Total gears are five.
Dimensions & seating position: Overall dimension of ZS125-68 are 2040 mm, 780 mm and 1120 mm which are generally length, width and height. Besides, it has 1290 mm wheelbase. Fuel tank seems smaller but can contain huge amount of fuel which is 17 litres reportedly. Kerb weight of the bike 122 kg. Due to long pillion seat, three persons can ride on this 125 cc bike.
Suspension & Brakes: Like all the standard bikes, company has used telescopic front suspension for ZS125-68 bike and the rear suspension is twin spring loaded. THey would provide great deal of comfort. However, brakes are also good of the bike where front brake is disc and rear brake is drum.
Mileage: Reportedly this bike of Atlas Zongshen would give 65 km average mileage where company has claimed that it would provide almost 70 km mileage on highway. This is no extraordinary feature of the bike where most 125 cc bikes could provide such mileage.
Instrument Panel & Features: Speedometer of the bike ZS 125-68 is digital where clock, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter are added. Besides, there is analog tachometer or RPM meter is attached to the bike.
Colors & Price: Atlas Zongshen ZS125-68 is current available in Bangladesh with just one color which is Red but hopefully in near future, the new colors of this products would reveal. The current price of this machine is BD 140,000.
