Keeway SR125 launched, one of the most expensive 125cc motorcycles in the market

Keeway India launched a new retro-styled SR125 at Rs 1.19 lakh (ex-showroom), making it one of the most expensive 125cc motorcycles in the market. In other words, the retro-styled motorcycle serves as an entry point into the Keeway India product line, which includes a 300cc scooter and a 250cc barber. And before you wonder, the Keeway SR125 has nothing to do with the Aprilia SR125!

Keyway SR125: Design

The design of the Keeway SR 125 is very simple, with a teardrop shape, a 14.5 liter fuel tank and compact side panels that make up most of the bodywork. It has small halogen headlights and a single Ford Color Digital Display placed above it, and a single-part seat finished in tan adds contrast. The tail section is compact and has small fenders and round tail lights and indicator lights.

Keyway SR125: Engine

This bike is powered by a 125cc, air-cooled single-cylinder engine that makes 9.7hp and 8.2Nm. For reference, these power and torque figures are lower than the 10.7hp and 11Nm the Honda Shine 125’s engine makes.

Keyway SR125: Chassis

The SR125 has a single downtube frame suspended by a telescopic fork and twin shock absorbers with 5-step adjustment. The bike is equipped with dual purpose tires on 17″ wire spoke wheels. Meanwhile, braking missions are handled by 300mm discs and 210mm discs at the rear. The 300mm disc size is too big for a 125cc, less than 10hp motorcycle. Also, while we’re talking about power, the Keeway SR125 not only makes less power than things like the Honda Shine or TVS Raider, but it’s also a lot heavier at 120kg.

Keeway SR125: Color, Availability and Competition

The Keeway SR125 is available in three colors: Gloss Black, Gloss Red and Gloss White at all Keeway dealerships in India.

When it comes to competition, the Keeway SR125 competes with the TVS Raider, Honda Shine, Honda SP125 and Bajaj Pulsar 125. However, these motorcycles greatly outweigh the Keeway in terms of price. In fact, the SR125’s 1.19 lakh price tag is in the same price range as the TVS Apache RTR 160 and Yamaha FZ series.
