Paultan.org eagle eye reader Sam Wong sent in some photos of the Royal Alloy 125i scooter being road tested in Malaysia. If the Royal Alloy looks a bit familiar, the design style is borrowed from the 1960s Lambretta scooter, which was a rival to Vespa in Malaysia at the time.
The Royal Alloy range is slated for release soon and is imported by Royal Alloy Malaysia under the CMC group, which is also introducing the Royal Enfield range. Four scooters in the range will be available from a source in Royal Alloy, the Royal Alloy GP125i, GP180i, TG200 and TG250. The official start is planned for April.
The GP125i is powered by a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder two-valve Euro 4 engine that displaces 124 cc and develops 9.65 hp at 7,500 rpm and 9.2 Nm at 7,000 rpm and is fed by Delphi EFI. The data sheet shows that the GP125i weighs 130 kg and carries 11 liters of fuel in the fuel tank.
Braking takes place with individual hydraulic disc brakes at the front and rear with a combined braking system that is equipped with braided steel hoses. The suspension follows the traditional scooter design with a pre-adjustable front fork and an adjustable rear shock absorber for spring preload.
Royal Alloy is a Hanway Motor brand of China, previously known as “Royally”. By all means, this retro-themed scooter is designed for urban use and will likely be positioned for the budget friendly end of the market.
