Keeway Superlight 125 Cruiser

The Keeway Superlight is a European designed Chinese manufacctured motorcycle. For those of you who are thinking of daring to join the two wheeled fraternity and have always fancied a cruiser style motorcycle – the Speedway 125 is certainly a contender for your money. Battling with the Suzuki Marauder 125 and the Jinlun Texas Cruiser, there are numerous options to think about!

Not the most powerful bike around, as a city commuter or for a lazy Sunday afternoon spin, the Superlight fits the bill. It looks appealing, with chrome and black aplenty but errs on the side of being slightly agricultural upon closer inspection. And although it looks physically big, weighing in at 134 kilograms dry weight, it shouldn’t pose a problem for any beginner.

Pillion saddle comes as standard, as do foot boards to complete that easy rider style. There is a rather attractive fuel guage on the tank, which for some strange reason, seemed permanently fogged on my test ride model.

So lets get technical: the Superlight 125 is a 4 stroke counter balanced engine which generates 8.4Nm torque. Not by any stretch of the imagination a beast of a motorcycle, but there’s plenty to play around with. With a maximum speed in and around eighty kilometres an hour it’s sufficient for city riding – other than that, tail winds and downhills are helpful! Handling is pleasantly decent for such a small engine, cornering at slow speeds acceptable too.


From a standing start the bike accelerates smoothly and is reasonable stable.

Being a cruiser, you do feel the bumps – but that’s to be expected, cruisers are, afterall, meant for open roads! And with a ground clearance of just 120mm major roadworks and pot holes should be avoided! There is a kick start as well as an electric shoe mounted on the handlebars. Indicators are Harley style, switch on. switch off buttoms.

A gremlin must have disconnected them on the test ride model, I only got slightly annoyed that they wouldn’t work for me. Brakes are sufficient stoppers with a single disc on the front and a drum brake on the rear. You’re not likely to go over the handlebars, but they do what they are supposed to.

With a fuel capacity of 15 litres and a manufactureer website indicating 2.2litres per 100 kilometres, all I can say is, the needle on the fuel guage didn’t move despite the fifty or so kilometres I ran up on the clocks.

As a final word, there is always going to be the battle between the long established Japanese models and these new Chinese products, but it appears that over the last few years there has been a noticable increase in production quality standards and reliability in these newbies to the scene. Without a doubt, these are a cheap alterntaaive for an enrty level motorcycle.
