- Hanway NK 125 Furious updated for 2021 in Germany
- Gets a Euro5-compliant engine and other updates
- India launch not on the cards
The Chinese two-wheeler manufacturer, Hanway, is present in a couple of European countries and is quite popular for its 125cc offerings. One of these models, the NK 125 Furious, has recently been updated for 2021 in Germany. Also known as the Online Pista 125 in Europe, this puny street bike competes against the likes of the KTM 125 Duke.
The NK 125 Furious is mainly targeted at A1 license holders in Europe. It churns out around 15bhp of peak power which is the maximum permissible performance number under A1 licensing rules in the continent. It produces a peak torque of 11Nm from its 124cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that is now tweaked for Euro5 compliance. Notably, the engine specs of the bike are quite close to the KTM 125 Duke that makes nearly the same power and torque.
Besides the changes in its engine, Hanway has also equipped the bike with new 17-inch cast wheels that are shod with 110/70 and 140/70 section tyres at the front and rear, respectively. It also gets premium upside down forks and a monoshock. What’s more, the Chinese bike maker has updated the bike on the design and feature front as well.
The 2021 NK 125 Furious actually looks ‘furious’ with the new insect-like fascia housing full-LED lamps. The rest of the body work has been left untouched which includes a sculpted fuel tank and a stubby BMW G 310 R-like tail section. Furthermore, the bike now features a new colour TFT screen that gets Bluetooth connectivity and shows more information.
In Germany, the Hanway NK 125 Furious is sold at 3,500 euros (approximately Rs 3.10 lakh). The Chinese brand won’t enter the Indian market anytime soon.
