A dealer in Pattaya now stocks this Keeway motorbike

The good news is that it is fully loaded and priced at 99000 Baht.

The bad news is that it is not Japanese.
The dealer stated that is manufactured in Taipei.

Superficially it looks well made. I sat on the machine and it feels about thew same as a Phantom

Any experience out there?

That is good news, we love Keeway, but Keeway is defiantly not a Chinese or Taiwanese manufacturer. I believe they have some manufacturing done in China, and Taiwan but they are a Hungarian manufacturing company.

Kozuzo u. 8.
Szentendre, Hungary, HU H-2000

If they sell Keeway in Pattaya, we would like you to ask the dealer if he can point us (Motorcycle Thailand) to the distributor as we would surely like to test one of this bikes.

It features unforgettable "smoothie" style rims, V-shaped 2 cylinder 250cc engine that delivers more power than you imagine. Experience CRUISER, and own the dominance you deserve.

V-shaped 2 cylinder 250cc 4-stroke air cooled engine, which delivers more than enough power, Traditional dash board integrates smoothly with the headlamp, indicators and windscreen, Classical cruiser lines adopted on handle bars and mirrors, Handle bars are ergonomically engineered in the right position to ensure maximum comfort. Double independent exhausts supply the traditional cruiser sound you are looking for. An unforgettable rim design and wide tires set it apart from its contemporaries. Supple front and rear suspension and fine ergonomically shaped seat make it comfortable for long distance travel. Black seat, accompanied by two studded leather saddle bags, gives you just the right style. Wide foot rests give the most comfortable ride possible. Front and rear disk brakes provide a strong stopping power making sure you are in control under various conditions.

Thanks for the info
The dealer knows nothing about this machine. I had to advise them of the Keeling name. They referred to it as a M -since this letter is printed of the passenger seat.
However -one question
What would you consider is the maximum cruising speed say on a good level road?

I will advise you of a contact and phone shortly. The particular dealer is located at the junction of 3rd Rd and South Pattaya Rd.(Precisely at the North Eastern corner of the junction). If you can arrange a test drive I would like an invitation to witness this test-maybe I can have a ride myself.

Hi this Cruiser looks good and if I am not going to be able to get a Yamaha V twin this would be a suitable alternative!!! I have emailed various departments of keeway who I guess are based in Europe NO REPLY Today I sent a rude email to the English operation and they must have forwarded it to a guy in China!! I do think the bikes are being manufactured in China but this fact does not really bother me.What did bother me was that the Chinese guy had no knowledge of anyome stocking their bikse in Thailand! in fact he was sure they were not on sale in Thailand!!! Trying to buy the model of something you actually want to buy as opposed to buying all the old tat which is actually on offer is a Nightmare in Thailand I do not actually think that the Thais understand business.If things were not so restrictive here any entrepreneur worth a damm could make a fortune!!!

Anyway if this deal in Pataya does stock Keeway I would be gratefull for a phone number or an email in fact I would be grateful for anything..

Taken from the Keeway/Qian Jiang company profile posted on http://liumi2153.en.ecplaza.net/:

KEEWAY is the European-registered brand of Qianjiang Group of China. KEEWAY has become a multinational organization incorporating R&D, design, sale, and service of motorcycle and other mechanical products. Under the corporate umbrella, there are Qianjiang-Keeway Europe (Hungary), Keeway Poland, Keeway Spain, Keeway Finland, Keeway France, Keeway Italy, Keeway Croatia, Keeway America (USA), among others.



Taken from the Keeway Benelux website http://www.keeway.be/en/about/:

KEEWAY, a company having more than 14.000 employees, is a statement in the Chinese motorcycle industry.
Every year more than 1.200.000 scooter, motorbikes and quads are produced!
In China, Keeway vehicles are traded as Qian Jiang and since 1999 they are exported as KEEWAY all over the world. There has also been founded a European headquarters in Hungary.



So apparently Keeway is indeed Chinese owned and manufactured but with their R&D in Europe.

The Keeway brand name is registered to an address in Hungary. That the Hungarian brand owners manufacturer the motorcycles in China is nothing new, BMW, Sachs and several none-European brands do that. Still Keeway has a European office and most R&D is done in Europe, therefore they qualify as a European brand name.

The brand name is registered in Hungary but the Hungarian brand name owners are a Chinese company who have their headquarters in Shanghai and who happen to be the same company who manufacture the bikes. Sure, it is a Hungarian brand.... ;-)
