unsung hero in its own


M back again on MS wid one more review.

This time I m my memoirs n views on kawasaki kb 100 ie bajaj auto limiteds bike.

The bike which was in itself from its competitor on aspect whether its power,styling or yet was a failed tale in indian history due to its maker-s (bajaj-s) inclination

toward scooters.

before all those customtakeoutory postmortom.

some flash memories with this very first bike.

indian market in 80s was flooded many JV-s for motorbikes and was lagging behind other-s of its neglegience of bike prospects as then was a scooter market initially bajaj had refused JV offer in 83.

but after seeing booking of 100 cc indo jap bikes it had to form a JV with KAWASAKI INDUSTRIES which then the maker of fastest bike in the

2.It was the only 100 cc bike had featured a tachometer in 80s(only rajdoot yamaha RD 350 but RD 350 was high end

3.First indian bike central locking fuel

3.KB in KB 100 meant KAWASAKI

4.Quick acceleration 0-60 in 8.5 (second only after rx 100 in its

5.12 volt dc system from all 100 cc indo-jap bikes who using 6 volt dc system for

6.Most aerodynamically advanced in its category.

7.Most stable n ride due to superior delta having low friction design.

wheel base brake in its class.

9.Only bike with engine kill for emmergency control

10.Choke at handlebar.

Well after differentiation aspect. some at the conditions prevailing in the market

that why despite having edgy features this had got slow reponse from the in india.

-.Actually KB 100 was last among the of 100 cc launches in the 80s and untill then the power hungry rider has got his in RX 100 the econo conscious bikers for CD 100. the remaining experimentals who willing to touch both feeling opted for the very suzuki max 100(IND-SUZUKI AX 100 then)

its advertisement too was very limited then bajaj auto-s on scooters. which in turn had them lot and had given HERO a dominance for over a decade.

the period from 1986-90 KB 100 primerily were coming MAHARASTRA,GUJARAT,KARNATAKA

etc and in northern state it was not a starter in sales.

-It was only 1990 onward when auto-s famous chetah came the sales started far less compared to RX 100 but yes bikers opting for this bike too as a substitute for RX 100 with more efficiency at the cost of just 1.3 slow throttle response for 100 claiming 0-60 in 7.2 seconds KB for

BAJAJ then had tried to a surge in its demand by offerring maintenance for one year offerrings.

an off road which they india-s first dirt SX-ENDURO with same engine as an extension for performence bikers. with all plastic

Soon they had also the fastest stablemate to the KB family the KB 125 in with more goodies in of attractive graphics and features. its too had created wave in 1996 warning not to immitiate.

Soon it was looking that KB will up with its own distinctive edge.

too launched its 135 series with RXZ and suzuki with shaolin.

Bajaj KB 125

as a result again it was fainted the immagination of the bikers. finally the of CBZ in 1999 was last nail in its ….

BAJAJ too had started on its 4 stroker stablemates like 4s Caliber as the market was dominated by 4 for their fuel efficiency.


Whether it was KB 100-s

LOCKING( Hero Honda CENTRAL LOCK only 1994 In Their SPLENDOR TVS In 1999 With FIERO OR in 1997 with RXZ )

-TACHOMETER( Honda putted Tachometer from 1999 onwards and too in cbz which infact was 150 cc whereas tvs in with shogun ,while in 1997 with RXZ)

GAUGE(Hero honda putted gauge in 1994 from its model only while tvs Fiero in 1999 )

welll@ end my experience

of our reviewers us with KB 100

I do remember my kiddo IN UP when while going to I saw a decent no of KB 100 with engine having words DELTA engrossed over them.

for the time I rode KB 100 in 2002. I say really it was having perfect of balance as well as agility. it would have been closest competitor (prior to SHOGUN )if it had been advertised

The cities in which I had saw plenty of r PUNE n MUMBAI with too having some nicely KB-s.

My collegue in Delhi is an 1994 model black KB 100 I had tried many times I goes to meet him in punjabi once u started the kick the sound is really mesmerising one for any one will fall in love this beauty once he had his hand.

I remeber how hardly in december we searched for ring pistons console in karolbagh n finally that by paying xtra

But, items like indicators r hard to find in scrapyard of delhi. we had searched a lot

All was my tribute to this so called product

Feel free to n share ur experience.
