Much interested has been raised by the launch of the 2019 GPX Racing Demon 150GR and 150 GN in Malaysia, notably the Panigale look-a-like styling of the Demon 150GR. With pricing for the Demon 150GN set at RM9,800 before road tax, insurance and registration and price for the 150GR due out soon, was given a first ride of the duo recently.

Power for the Demon 150 in both GR and GN flavours comes from a 149 cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. A six-speed gearbox and chain final drive takes care of the driveline and 8-litres of fuel is carried in the tank to feed the carburettor.

Suspension is with upside-down forks in front and a YSS monoshock propping up the rear end. Rolling on 120/70-14? and 140/70-14? wheels, front and rear respectively, the Demon 150 GR is claimed to have a 120+ km/h top speed from manufacturer’s testing figures, with braking done by a single hydraulic disc on the front and back.

We took both bikes through the paces at the Tangkak race track and found that the small wheel size made for fun and interesting handling, with none of that scooter “instability” claimed by many. There were no complaints about the quality of build and the only thing we wished for was more braking.

In summary, the 2019 GPX Racing Demon 150GR, with its sports styling and the Demon 150GN, catering for the naked sports crowd, are a pair of fun bikes that will suit the city rider. What do you think of this pair of fun bikes that hail from Thailand? Leave a comment with your thoughts and opinions below.
