    Keeway has officially launched its small-capacity cruiser, the K-Light 250V, at a price of Rs 2.89 lakh. The Keeway K-Light 250V goes up against rivals such as the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and the Honda H’Ness CB350, to name a few.

    Keeway K-Light 250V: specifications

    In a market filled to the brim with single-cylinder engines, Keeway has gone a different route and equipped the K-Light 250V with an air-cooled, 250cc V-twin engine making 18.7hp at 8,500rpm and 19Nm at 5,500rpm. It is also the only motorcycle in this segment to feature a belt final drive compared to the chain final drives found on others.

    The size of the fuel tank at 20 litres is comfortably the largest in the segment and should help the K-Light 250V have a longer range than any of its rivals. The large tank doesn’t come at the cost of a weight penalty as the little cruiser tips the scales at 179kg. 

    The seat height is very accessible at 715mm and the bike has a respectable 160mm of ground clearance which should help it traverse our pothole-strewn roads with relative ease. The K-Light 250V rides on 16-inch rims at both ends with a chunky 120/80 section tyre at the front and a 140/70 section tyre at the rear. Dual-channel ABS is offered as standard.

    Keeway K-light 250V: price and rivals

    The Keeway K-Light 250V is available in three colour options to choose from – Matte Blue at Rs 2.89 lakh, Matte Dark Grey at Rs 2.99 lakh and Matte Black at Rs 3.09 lakh. 

    Its rivals include RE Meteor 350, the Honda H’ness CB350, the Yezdi Roadster and the Benelli Imperiale 400. These bikes are all priced neck and neck, ranging from Rs 1.9 lakh to Rs 2.2 lakh, depending on the variant you pick. 

    Considering the fact that even the most expensive bike here undercuts the K-Light 250V by a rather significant margin, along with the Hungarian brand’s relatively scant dealer network of 40 dealerships in India, the Keeway cruiser has its work cut out for it. 

    All prices mentioned are ex-showroom, Delhi.
