Keeway India has launched its fourth motorcycle in their line-up, it is the V302C. The bookings for the Keeway V302C are opened at ₹10,000 and it is priced at ₹3.89 lakh (ex-showroom). The V302C is a cruiser-type motorcycle that sits above the K-Light 250V. There are no direct rivals to the V302C but because of its price, it would have to go against the likes of Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650.
Keeway V302C comes with a 298 cc, twin-cylinder engine that has a V-configuration. It is a liquid-cooled unit with a SOHC setup. The engine is capable of producing a max power output of 29.5 hp at 8,500 rpm and 26.5 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm.

Keeway is offering the V302C in three colour options. There is Grey, Black and Red. The motorcycle measures 2,120 mm in length, 836 mm in width and has a height of 1,050 mm. The V302C has a wheelbase of 1,420 mm and the ground clearance is 158 mm which should be enough to tackle speed breakers. The fuel tank has a capacity of 15 litres and the seat height is 690 mm which is very accessible.
