Latest alloy wheel technology is used to the bike with perfect placed handlebar. There is also pillion grabrail is added to the bike. Consider the rest 125 cc available bikes in the country, RKS 125 would be one of the best looks bike no doubt.
Engine performance: The engine of RKS 125 is almost powerful which consists of 124.5 cc displacement. However, the cooling system of the engine is air cooled which also has four stroke, 2 – valve and SOHC system included. However, the max power of the bike is 11.2 Bhp @ 9000 rpm and the max torque is 9.2 Nm @ 7500 rpm. Only electric starting method is added to the bike and kicking system is reduced. TLI ignition system of the bike and five speed gearbox makes the top speed better. It can provide more than 100 km per hour highest speed.

Suspension & Brakes: Telescopic coil spring oil damped front suspension is used for the front wheel of Keeway RKS 125 and telescopic forks suspension is used for rear. The suspensions are in minimum level which needs to upgrade. However, The braking combination of bike is good where disc and drum both are used. In front disc brake is used as usual and for rear, drum brake is used. As 125 cc bike, it would be enough to control the machine.
Mileage: One thing is very impressive and convincing about Keeway RKS 125 which is it’s mileage. Due to the 125 cc sports bike, it’s average mileage is 55 km. But on highway, it’s mileage will increase to 60 km no doubt. However, most of the standard category bikes in this segment have almost 50 km mileage but this is claimed as sports bike. So, it’s mileage would be poor. But, Keeway does not want to compromise with the mileage. Their products for all types of people.

Keeway RKS 125 Rating
The most of the features of Keeway RKS 125 is very good where the suspensions are most reliable and used to provide great comfort. The tyres are wide enough and can grip well. Besides, the seating position is good though it is not divided. Due to limited weight and lighter than seems, it’s balance is too good. So, no doubt about the handling of the machine. However, there are some negative sides as well. There is no kicking system are included and so, riders would face problem sometimes. The gearbox needs to improve for better service. Besides, the price as a China bike would reduce somewhat. However, the tyres are no tubeless which is backdated. So, here we present the positive and negative sides of the bike. Now, choice is yours.
