For the new year, three new models are making an appearance for Keeway Motorcycles – the K-Light 202 retro hot-rod, the Cafe Racer 152 and Patagonian Eagle 250 cruiser – priced at RM9,103, RM6,521 and RM9,951, respectively. All price include GST, but exclude road tax, insurance and registration.

As a retro throwback to the ear of 50s and 60s hot-rodded motorcycles, the 2018 Keeway K-Light 202, priced at RM9,103 including GST, carries a single-cylinder, four-stroke, two-valve thumper engine displacing 197 cc. Power is rated at 12.8 hp at 7,500 rpm and torque comes in at 13.9 Nm at 6,000 rpm and there are two colour choices, red or black.

Power gets to the ground via a five-speed gearbox and fuelling is by carburettor with liquid-cooling taking away engine heat. Braking is with a single disc front and rear on 17-inch and 15-inch wheels, respectively, and the suspension is non-adjustable.

Also using a 149 cc single-cylinder, this time air-cooled, the 2018 Keeway Cafe Racer 152 goes for RM6,521, and its thumper produces 11.3 hp at 8,500 rpm and 11.1 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The Cafe Racer’s gearbox is a five-speed affair, and a carburettor takes care of fuelling.

Weighing in at 102 kg, the Cafe Racer carries fuel in a 12.1-litre tank, and suspension is with telescopic front fork, and oil-damped twin coil-spring shock absorbers in the rear. Rolling on 17-inch wheels, the Cafe Racer is braked with a single disc in front, and a drum brake at the back.

New entry to the quarter-litre cruiser market is the 2018 Keeway Patagonian Eagle 250, retailing for RM9,951. The Eagle 250 comes with a two-cylinder, 251 cc, oil-cooled power plant that puts out 17.4 hp at 8,000 rpm and 16.5 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

Fuelled by carburettor, the Eagle 250 gets power to the ground via a five-speed gearbox, with final drive by chain. Clocking in at 145 kg, fuel for the Eagle 250 is carried in a 12-litre fuel tank, and seat height is set at 695 mm, with two colour choices available – Matte Black and Metallic Matte Red.

All three Keeway models are set to hot authorised Keeway dealer showrooms in January 2018. The Keeway K-Light 202 retro hot-rod, the Cafe Racer 152 and Patagonian Eagle 250 cruiser come with a two-year or 20,000 km manufacturing warranty, whichever comes first.
