Hanway bikes have been in Nepal for quite a time now. Motors Avenue Pvt Ltd, the authorised dealer for Hanway motorbikes in Nepal, currently has two bike models, Furious 150 and HD250, to offer the people of Nepal.

Previously, it had also launched scooters and other models of Hanway bikes in Nepal. The new products also look promising. However, there are similar products from established brands already available in the market. Given the high prices of Hanway bikes in the Nepali market, the bikes might not fare well in the Nepali market.

But, wait. Before reaching a conclusion, read about their specifications first.

Hanway bikes look great not only from their looks but their build quality looks solid as well. The powertrain is also satisfying. The only problem they have in Nepal is the dominance of big players like Yamaha, Honda and Bajaj in a similar category.

These brands were in Nepal for a long time and have already created a genuine fan base and followers. Also, the price of the products from these brands are similar to Hanway and some are even cheaper. The performance from the likes of Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and Bajaj has always been great, due to which they are still thriving on the market. Meanwhile, Hanway is a new product for the people here. It has to continuously produce and distribute its products if it wants to be in the competition with the current big players of the market.

In addition, it really needs to work on its pricing. Though it has some good products, no one wants to pay a huge sum of amount for an unknown bike.
