DSK Motowheels is planning to introduce a budget bike brand Keeway in India in 2015. The company currently handles the operations of Hyosung and Benelli range of bikes in India. Interestingly, the company has recently imported one unit of the Keeway Superlight 200 in semi-knockdown (SKD) condition, which is expected to be assembled at DSK’s production facility in Wai, Maharashtra. The introduction of bikes as SKD would help the company avoid high taxes on CBU imports, and will allow the maker to price Keeway bikes competitive in the market.

DSK Keeway Superlight 200

The Keeway Superlight 200 is propelled by a 197cc single-cylinder engine that churns out a maximum power output of 12.7bhp and a peak torque of 14Nm. We believe that the Keeway Superlight 200 will be a bad attempt from DSK Motorwheels, as most 200cc bikes in our country are offering power over 20bhp. For example, the upcoming Pulsar 200SS' 200cc engine develops 23.5bhp of power.

The Keeway Superlight 200 is 2260mm long, which surely offers comfortable seats for two adults. The bike has all-black theme, and there are chrome treatment to add some spark to its look. The braking system comprises of disc at the front and drum type brakes at the rear. The twin exhaust tips also add to its style. It is expected that the Keeway Superlight 200 will be priced in the range of Rs. 1.2 lakh to Rs. 1.4 lakh, which is pretty decent. Moreover, DSK will also launch the Keeway Blackster in the country, which is powered by a powerful 249cc engine.
