ARN 150 – Can Keeway be China’s saving

(Eh, looks somewhat but still a bit too much like the standard spy-vs-spy design.)

BIG out to Orin O’Neill from Old Skool who took it upon to give the Chinese a chance a review of Keeway’s ARN 150. Is it a pile of horse poop or a worthy 2-wheeler. Let’s see Orin had to say, TAKE IT ORIN! (oh, and my quips be lurking in the parens. LIKE scare ya?)

Keeway ARN 150

by Orin O’Neill

For many the term “Chinese scooter” is connected to the term “cheap and (go ooooon?) And why not? Chinese have mostly been with odd names, sold at retailers or storefronts that sell mobile phones and do transfers to Central America. forget pawn shops and car dealers.) Cheap, yes, but not well-made, and certainly not supported by like a franchised dealer or service centers. (preach on Orin!)

But this situation is changing Just as the bicyclists in Mao suits acquired BMWs and Italian clothes (Hrm… An Armani Mao China’s automotive industry is up, the goal nothing less being a major player on the stage, with products the of anything offered by Japanese, European or even American

Keeway is one of those companies. New to the States, the company has divisions Europe [including a design and center in Italy], and a product that includes scooters, ATVs and even go-karts, all by engines designed and built by (I will say that of all the Chinese I saw at the Indi Dealer Expo, I Keeway the best).

Keeway’s ARN 150 in a crowded field in Europe, up against such storied as Honda, Yamaha and Piaggio. In the where people are just now up to the idea of motor scooters, the ARN 150 has most Americans are seeking all else–a low price.

Scooter Gallery of Seattle, supplied the test example, the ARN 150 for $2195, a price that a top case and remote-controlled alarm. compares quite favorably the Genuine Buddy 125 ($2599) and Vino 125 ($2649), both of give away 25cc to the ARN 9.4-horsepower engine.

Nasty, the ARN 150 definitely is not. The styling is if a bit derivative. Yes, the body is but the pieces are of high quality and fit precisely.

The blue is a perfect for Team Yamaha blue, so you can find a helmet that match. The chassis components well-made, and the cast aluminum look expensive. There’s a hydraulic disc brake in and a rear drum brake a helper spring that a weighty feel to the rear lever operation. (Yeah, ARN isn’t the prettiest thing Keeway has to offer, but I’m glad to it’s at least put together

On the road, it works well and solidly built. Like Asian scooters, the riding is a bit scrunched-up for someone 5′ 11″ and 240 lbs. but I was to place both feet on the ground, in my Adidas scooter (This tends to be the biggest with Keeway scoots.

and I both have experienced with the ‘high floorboard’.) The is harder than you’ll on most scooters in this but the upholstery is somewhat slippery… I myself sliding forward going down hills. not good. Might have to some of those non-slip phone mats on the seat. me of the time a friend of mine All’d his seat.

It was like a greased hog! Not that I’d admit to riding a greased mind you.)

The 12-inch combine with an adjustable and telescopic front fork to make Seattle’s mostly pavement bearable. The ARN 150′s tires easily passed the Bridge Grating Nibble there was none. (BWAHAHA! the greatest sounding test ever heard of.

Thanks Orin.) These have a tread pattern not the Continental Zippy 3, sort of a with diagonal grooves.

An expansion chamber on a 4-stroker. to make you look 10 mph faster!)

The sound is not what you’d the performance-looking (that expansion is really a muffler) pipe off a low-pitched growl. Even for a bit of play in the right handgrip, it to require a great big twist to get the to move smartly, but once it will go . We saw an indicated 50 mph, and was room for more than

However, you probably won’t be to do random speed runs the ARN 150, but if that’s what you you’d be looking elsewhere.

This is a bike for the first-time owner. It’s inexpensive, to ride, handles predictably, has of power to keep up with and will let you amaze your with tales of how far a few bucks’ of gas will take you.

And you’re ready to move up, are Keeway will have for you…

(Say cheese! Keeway! Your ARN 150 has passed the With the expansion of your and support infrastructure I believe you have a quality product of a TSS reader’s hard earned

I’ve talked to Keeway’s and voiced my only concern, the floorboards, and he said they are it now. Great to know! guys are close to us here at the TSS so we plan on paying them a when things cool

Thanks again to Orin Scootin’ Old School for the excellent We hope to hear more Orin in the near future and if you wait for that you should go out his blog. I’m sure he’ll something tasty for us when kicks off on July 12th. I could be there.

TheScooterScoop’s roving reporter, Hsu will be on site snapping and pondering it’s greatness. Be to say “Wassup!?”.
