Keeway has just launched the Benda V302C in India, which is the brands's fourth offering and Keeway's second V-twin cruiser motorcycle in India. It is available in three colours: Grey, Black, and Red, which are available at an ex-showroom price tag of Rs 3.89 lakhs, Rs 3.99 lakhs, and Rs 4.09 lakhs, respectively.
Keeway made its debut in India in May of this year. It is a Hungarian marque and the Benelli group's sister company. Its portfolio also includes the Vieste 300 maxi-scooter, Sixties 300i retro scooter, and K-Light 250V cruiser, in addition to the newly launched V302C. The new Benda V302C is now Keeway's flagship model in India, and it features a V-Twin engine.
A 298cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine produces 29 bhp at 8,500 RPM and 26.5 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 RPM in the new Keeway V302C. The engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and a belt drive system. This motorcycle has a seat height of only 690mm and a ground clearance of 158mm.
Keeway V302C is equipped with upside-down front forks and twin spring-loaded shock absorbers at the rear. The motorcycle's braking is handled by disc brakes on both ends, with dual-channel ABS as standard. It has a front tyre size of 120/80-16 and a rear tyre size of 150/80-15.
Benda V302C comes with a round-shaped LCD instrument cluster, a slipper clutch, dual-channel ABS, alloy wheels, and an LED headlight and taillight. It also gets traction control settings, the level specifics of which are still unknown.
Bookings are now open for a nominal fee of Rs 10,000, with deliveries set to begin soon. Keeway Benda V302C, along with the K-Light 250V, may be among the more affordable V-twin cruiser motorcycles. With a twin-cylinder engine, the Interceptor 650 is another strong contender in this price range. Royal Enfield not only has more power, but it is also a Value For Money (VFM) product.
