Keeway Superlight 125 Overview
If you are looking for a cruiser that is light on the pocket, the Keeway Superlight 125 is a good bargain. While Keeway is a Chinese bike, it does perform better than expectations for the price. With a great finish and a reasonable price, it is a good deal for someone looking to buy their first bike.
Producing a max torque of 10.46 HP @9000 RPM, it is a reasonably powerful bike to ride on all kinds of terrain. The chassis is well designed for a comfortable ride with an arch bar frame that offers good handling. The suspensions are okay too – with a front telescopic fork and rear suspensions of telescopic coil spring with oil dampeners.
While riders have said that the gearbox and engine do feel rather stiff initially, if you stick to around 80KPH and keep the rev consistent at 7,000 for the first thousand or so kilometres it will break in. The braking system is good with a front single disc 275 mm and drum brakes 160 mm at the rear.
The road handling is also quite good, and it performs well both in city traffic and in the countryside. While the top speed is around 110 km, it rides best at 80-85 km. The tyres provide good road hugging with the front 110/90-16 and 130/80-15 at the rear. The fittings are of a decent quality with a good finish.
If you are looking for something hardcore this is not the bike. However, if you are looking to spend under £2k, you could not ask for more!

Comfy for one but not enough power for two.
Nice looking bike but 3 days after having it my clutch cable was too loose and melted to the exhaust.
Stops in a second, great abs braking system.
Rides lovely with no load on it or hills.
Great starter bike where you dont need that motorway speed
Cheap to buy and unbelievably cheap to run...........pennies
Not very comfy
Built okay, bit plasticky
No powerful. Sluggish
Cheap to run big tank
It's only a 125cc so it's a little limited.
It's a decent bike for a 1st bike.
It's brakes enough for the power it has.
It handles nicely.
Very reliable after 1 year with daily use.
Handling both on straight and bends is superb. Although seems like a bigger bike, perfect seating position for handling.
Has good pull, but tops out at 55 to 60 mph. Still it is only a 125
