Actually, the word MR1 refers to ‘Motosikal Rakyat 1Malaysia’ (1Malaysia People’s Bike). The price of the this is very aggressive at RM2,948 which puts it along the rank of Honda EX5 (RM3,998) and its own Modenas CT100. The CT100 is priced at RM3,398 with electric starter and both 100cc.
From the brochure above, it can be seen that MR1 comes in two flavor; Model E and Model F. The Model F is the upmarket version where it comes with electric starter and for this, I think this one should have a price higher than the recommended RM2,948. But if the price is at RM3,100, this mean it will have a very slight difference when compared to Modenas CT100.
The panel meter looks familiar for all the Kriss family. Large speedometer with easy to read fuel indicator and four lights on the top of it that includes the normal high beam, neutral gear position indicator, top gear position indicator and turn signal indicator.
The overall design of this bike takes the cues from the Modenas Kriss 120 which is one of the popular bike from them long time ago. The most recognizable feature is the tail light that have some kind of fighter jet exhaust pipe cover that enclose it.
The engine used are the workhorse that are proven in terms of durability and fuel efficiency. The same engine are fitted to Kriss 100 and CT100. Maybe Modenas team decide that, if the thing works well, why change it?
Low price are very attractive and this could be the ‘People’s Bike’ as what the team wants it to be. Aftermarket parts will quickly comes out after the bike sells well. Maybe it could even be the tuner’s bike after all.
The technical specs are as follow:
Modenas MR1 price is at RM2,948.
