The 2-cylinder engine and belt-drive system on the K-Light 250cc cruiser motorcycle are segment firsts.
Keeway, a Hungarian two-wheeler manufacturer, appears to have a bullish strategy for the Indian market, launching three new products at the same time. Sixties 300i, a retro-styled scooter; Vieste 300, a maxi scooter; and K-Light 250V, a cruiser, are among the portfolio’s offerings.
Qianjiang Group, based in China, owns both Keeway and Benelli. Keeway is a global company with offices in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. The company focuses on small capacity bikes and scooters in the 50cc to 125cc segment in most European markets.
K-Light 250V Benelli Keeway 250cc Cruiser
The design of the Keeway K-Light 250V is similar to that of other cruiser bikes such as the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob. The bike is also available in 125cc and 200cc versions in international markets. In comparison to its smaller siblings, the 250cc version launched in India has larger proportions. The bike has a classic retro motorcycle silhouette and includes features such as a round headlamp. Matte Black, Matte Blue, and Matte Grey are the three color options available to users.
A sculpted fuel tank, all-LED lights, step-up split seat, engine guard, dual exhaust, pillion backrest, short tail section, and rear tyre hugger are among the other highlights. Overall, the bike has a muscular profile that gives it a commanding presence on the street. It measures 2230 mm long, 920 mm wide, 1090 mm tall, and has a 1,530 mm wheelbase.
The scooped-up rider seat, pulled-back handlebar, and forward-set footpegs are all pluses in terms of ride comfort. In comparison to the rider seat, the pillion section appears to be somewhat constrained. It may be suitable for city rides, but it may not be suitable for long-distance travel.
With a seat height of 715 mm, users can expect optimal control and handling. A tank-mounted semi-digital instrument console is one of K-standout Light’s features. It displays a variety of data, including a gear position indicator.

Engine and specifications for the Keeway K-Light 250V
Powering The Keeway K-Light 250V is a 249cc air-cooled V-twin motor that produces 18.7 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and 19 Nm at 5,500 rpm. At the front, telescopic shock absorbers are used, and at the back, hydraulic suspension is used. Disc brakes are used on both ends, and dual-channel ABS is included as standard. Check out the detailed walkthrough video below, courtesy of Thrustzone.
Because the bike has a belt drive system, users can expect smooth performance. A 20-litre tank capacity is another useful feature. There will be fewer stops at gas stations as a result of this. The ground clearance on the K-Light is 160mm, which is sufficient for a wide range of conditions. Both ends of the bike have 16-inch wheels with 120/80 front and 140/70 rear tyres.
For a small fee of Rs 10,000, you can reserve any of the three Keeway two-wheelers. The cost has yet to be determined. Reservations can be made on the Keeway India website or at any Benelli dealer. It will compete with Royal Enfield motorcycles, particularly the Meteor 350 cruiser.
