Race City 100 Review
Standard bike is the most popular bike and mostly used bike in Bangladesh and because of cheap price tags, the demands of the bikes are altime heavy. All types of people can use the standard type of bikes in Bangladesh due to standard design. So, all companies have extra focus on this type. Race is just like them. Race Global is a reputed but newborn Bangladeshi company though recently their name has spread and they have couple of top rated sports bike like Race Fiero, Race GTR etc. But also like most of the companies, they have launched a mostly recommended 100 cc standard bike in the market of Bangladesh which is known as Race City 100. The Race is a company that is originated in Bangladesh but their products use to assemble in China and so, Race City 100 is also assemble there.
Basically, there are plenty of 100 cc bikes are available in Bangladesh. Some of them are from reputed Indian or Japanese brands. In that case, Bangladeshi brands are far behind of them. But race has made some tricks about the fact and kept their bikes price lower than Indian or Japanese brands. So that their product’s sell would increase.
Let’s take a look below where we present Race City 100 bike’s specification completely.
Design & looks: Translate.google.com.bRace City 100 bike has not extraordinary looks and it is quite different than available standard bikes. It is pretty small and so, it’s seating position. But it seems the bike is strong. It has long grabrail with measured handlebar. The silencer pipe is also good looking. It can be considered as cafe racer.
Engine performance: Race City is powered by actual 100 cc engine displacement which consists of air cooled and one cylinder added. The max power of Race City is 7.37 Bhp@ 7500 rpm and max torque is 7.6 Nm@5500 rpm. It’s top speed is 80 kmph reportedly.
Dimensions & seating position: Though, Race City is a 100 cc standard bike but it is pretty small which consists of 1940 mm ong, 1050 mm high and 760 mm wide. The seat height of the bike is 800 mm. Only one pillion can ride on the bike comfortably. But it’s weight is much more than expected which is 130 kg. So, it would be hard for small or lightweight people to control. Fuel tank can contain 12.1 litres of fuel which is enough.
Suspension & Brakes: Front suspension of the bike Race City 100 is telescopic and rear suspension is coil spring oil damped. All features are considerably ok but braking system is not good where the both brakes are drum.
Mileage: Reported average mileage of the bike Race City is 70 km. It will increase on highway by maintaining proper speed. But on city road, it would reduce somewhat.
Instrument Panel & Features: Instrument console are rich of the bike Race City 100. It has clock, low fuel indicator, low oil indicator, speedometer, tail lamp and trun lamp.
Colors & Price: Race City is available in Bangladesh with just Black color and there are two versions of the bike is available in market but prices are same. One is spoke wheel version and other one of alloy wheel version. Current price of the bike is BDT 89,000.
Race City 100 Rating
The looks of the bike Race City 100 is overall good and unique. But it should be more eye catching. Price is considerably good and reasonable. 100 cc bike does not use for speed but for mileage. In that case, Race City has good top speed along with expected mileage. It’s controlling would be great if a disc brake would be added. The customer service of Race is not so good because it’s not still available throughout the country but in near future, it would be great. So, due to Bangladeshi brand, it’s resale value would not be as expected. Considering all the facts as a new product, there is a risk of buying it but the history of Race Global is good as well.
