With the launch of the brand-new V302C belt-drive V-twin cruiser in August last year, Keeway India took the entry-level premium segment by surprise. The bike arrived in our home market with a starting price of Rs 3.89 lakhs (ex-showroom). The V302C, the fourth offering from the Chinese-owned Hungarian brand, is available in three colors with various price tags. There is only one standard model with all the features included, though. Now, in a recent development that comes nearly a year after its launch, the bikemaker has updated the price of the V302C cruiser. Following the most recent hike, the twin-cylinder product from the brand with a sub-500cc engine now costs Rs 4.29 lakh instead of Rs 4.20 lakh as it did earlier. Prices are ex-showroom. This hike of Rs 9,000 over the initial sticker price is brought on by the existing powertrain's inclusion of a slipper clutch. Read on to know more about what the Keeway V302C offers to Indian buyers in terms of features, specs, and more.

Keeway V302C: Design 

In contrast to the K-Light 250V, which has a cruiser design, the Keeway V302C is low-slung and boasts a bobber style. The seat height is as low as 690mm. The motorcycle has blacked-out elements, a sloped front design, a scooped single-piece seat, a broad handlebar, and bar-end mirrors, which give it a distinctive stance in this market. The design also includes a curved 15-litre petrol tank with knee recesses and tank padding, a round headlight at the front, and fat-profile tyres on both ends. It features a 1,420mm wheelbase and 158mm of ground clearance. The front and back wheels of the bobber are made of alloy, measuring 16-inch in each case. As far as the colour options are concerned, the Keeway V302C has three different paint schemes to choose from: Glossy Red, Glossy Black, and Glossy Grey.

Keeway V302C Engine

The 298cc, V-twin, liquid-cooled motor in the V302C, which is capable of churning out a maximum power output of 29.5bhp and a peak torque of 26.5Nm, has not changed in terms of mechanical specs. With a belt-drive setup, this unit is coupled to a six-speed gearbox. Full-LED lighting, a fully digital instrument panel, and a dual-channel ABS are among the features that are still on the list. The circular console has several readouts, including the temperature, trip meter, fuel level, speedometer, and more. 

Keeway V302C: Hardware 

The V302C has twin rear springs with a 42mm travel and upside-down front forks with 120mm of travel. The Hungarian bobber's braking system consists of a single 300mm front disc as well as a dual-channel ABS-equipped 240mm rear disc. The front wheel is 120/80-16 and the rear wheel is 150/80-15. The kerb weight of the bike stands at 167 kg and comes with a 15-litre gasoline tank.
