Haojue NK 150 review: A fair bargain for dirt bike lovers in Nepal

In 2021, Nepal saw a rise in the import of dirt series as the younger generation seems to be attracted to them. The dirt bikes also complement the roads of Nepal. Adding to the available ones, Krishna International Trading Concern, the authorised distributor of Haojue motorcycles in Nepal, has brought the Haojue NK 150 in Nepal recently.

With multiple distributors throughout Nepal, NK 150 is an affordable dirt bike that can satisfy the need of those who want to own a dirt bike without spending a load of money. The power distribution is comparatively low on this bike, but for a 150cc bike, it provides a fair bargain.

Let’s have a quick look at what Haojue NK 150 is offering to riders and bike enthusiasts.

Design

Inspired by Suzuki DR 150, Haojue NK 150 sports a dual-adventure styling. It has an attractive modern look that can instantly gain the attention of the people. The build quality of the bike also looks fine compared to the price of the bike. Since the bike is said to be manufactured in collaboration with Suzuki, you can expect quality performance from it.

The bike includes elements like an armoire-style fuel tank protection cover that protects the fuel tank as well as boosts its visual appeal. Other elements like beak-styled front fender, high-mounted exhaust, and composite material rear carrier are also included in the bike for styling. It gives a premium look for a bike in the given price range and in no way, the build quality looks cheap.  

Performance

Haojue NK150 is powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, four-stroke, carburettor BS4 compliant engine that can generate a max power of 11.96PS at 8000rpm and a max torque of 11.6 Nm at 6000rpm. It comes with a five-speed gearbox and has a 12.5-litre fuel tank capacity.

The company claims the engine provides rapid acceleration, strong uphill traction power, and low-fuel consumption which can be a point of attraction for the buyers.

Since only being a 150cc bike, the power may not be enough for hardcore adventure but should be enough for a normal adventure ride. The bike can also be used as a daily commuter as it is comfortable for urban riding as well. With a ground clearance of 244mm, it should have no problem going through rough terrain.

Other than this, Haojue NK 150 provides a bunch of features that can be very beneficial to the riders. Some of the notable features of NK 150 are:

  • Balanced 150cc carburettor engine
  • High ground clearance
  • Attractive dirt bike styling
  • Armoire-styled fuel tank protection cover
  • Beak-style front fender
  • Halogen headlamp and taillamp
  • LCD instrument metre
  • Huge 12.5-litre fuel tank capacity
  • New composite material carrier
  • 180mm telescopic front and rear central absorber
  • Weaved rim with spoke wheels
  • Wider rear tyres

Price and availability

The price for Haojue NK 150 in Nepal is Rs 405,000 and is only available in a single variant with different colour options. You can get this bike from various dealers around Nepal.

In the given price range, it is a direct competition to Yamaha XTZ 150, Crossfire Tracker 250, and Honda XR 150. Only Crossfire Tracker 250 is cheaper than NK 150 and it is powerful than NK 150 as well. But when it comes to performance, NK 150 might have the upper hand over the Tracker 250.
