Just after Yamaha launched its Ybr 125 this year in April, there has been a movement in the otherwise stagnant motorbike scene of Pakistan. Lets admit that Yamaha is the pioneer of economically priced sports bike in Pakistan. But the game is not over yet. The competition has gone active.
Road Prince is off to launch a new 150cc sports bike in the next few days. The 150cc sports bike will be equipped with an electric starter 4-stroke single cylinder engine and a 5 speed gear box.
The shape seems quite sporty and attractive. It would be to early to comment on the performance as bike is yet to be launched.
The bike is also equipped with a digital meter similar to the Suzuki Inazuma 250cc.
The price of this Road Prince 150cc bike will be somewhere around PKR 180,000. I personally believe that for the brand name “Road Prince” this bike is overpriced. If 150cc bike for Rs 180k was under Honda or Yamaha flagship, it would have been an excellent price tag keeping in mind the buying power of people in Pakistan.
Road Prince has a track record for over a decade now in Pakistan. But still it is not as credible as Yamaha or Honda in the market. I cannot comment on the reliability of this bike as it is yet to be launched, but still the price should have been around Rs 150k, giving customers and bike lovers a chance to try Road Prince in comparison to Yamaha.
