Last month, we broke the news on the scheduled arrival of Royal Alloy in the country. Exelerate Ventures, the British scooter brand’s local distributor, gave us a sneak peek at these classic-styled rides which are now available in the local market: the GP180, GP300S, and TG300S. Brian Kitane, managing director of Exelerate Ventures, explains that they are offering these models at promo prices for the next batch of deliveries.
Royal Alloy TG300S (Jet Black, P295,000)
This top-of-the-line model is powered by a 278cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 22hp at 7,500rpm and 23Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. Like its two stablemates, the suspension duties of the TG300S are made up of double hydraulics with pre-load shock absorbers in front and twin shock absorbers at the rear.
The three models, which all have a dry weight of 132kg, are equipped with dual disc brakes fitted with Bosch ABS. All of them have an LED headlamp, taillight, and turn signals. The TG300S edges its two siblings with its chrome-laced TFT display.
Royal Alloy GP300S (Flame Red, P275,000)
The GP300S shares the same power plant as the TG300S. Aside from the model badge, this model is distinguished by its LCD instrument panel. Both the GP300S and TG300S are fitted with tubeless Pirelli tires—110/70-12 in front and 120/70-12 at the rear.
Royal Alloy GP180 (Sherwood Green, P175,000)
The most affordable in the Royal Alloy lineup, the GP180 is propelled by a 169cc, SOHC, air-cooled engine that generates 11.8hp at 8,000rpm and 12.5Nm of torque at 5,000rpm. Both this and the GP engine are Euro 4-compliant. Instead of Pirellis, the GP180 is fitted with a pair of IRC tires.
