Brixton, known for its stylish rides, is back in action with their latest model, the Crossfire 150 XS. If you thought the Cromwell 1200 was cool, wait till you check out this one which was recently launched at the Kuala Lumpur Bike Show 2023. 

First things first, let’s talk style. The Crossfire 150 XS is all about expressing your individuality. It comes in three eye-catching colors: Backstage Black, Clockwork Orange, and Cargo Green.

So, whether you’re into classic black, vibrant orange, or a cool green, there’s a flavor for everyone. Prices for this mini-sized marvel start at RM8,788 but remember, that doesn’t cover insurance and road tax.

Now, let’s dive into the heart of this beast. The Crossfire 150 XS packs a powerful yet efficient engine. It’s got a single-cylinder, 4-stroke setup with an air cooling system – nothing too complicated, just solid performance. With 150cc of displacement, it’s got enough oomph for various riding adventures.

The engine delivers a maximum power output of 10kW at 9,500rpm, ensuring thrilling acceleration and smooth cruising. Torque peaks at 10.5Nm at 3,100rpm, giving you optimal performance when you twist that throttle.

But it’s not just about what’s under the hood. The Crossfire 150 XS is designed with precision for agility and maneuverability. It’s 1,690mm long, 755mm wide, and 1,210mm tall – striking a balance between compactness and road presence. The comfortable seat at 770mm height keeps you in control, and the 1,280mm wheelbase ensures solid handling in different riding conditions.

Weighing in at 111kg, it’s got a lightweight build that makes it easy to handle. When it’s time to stop, you’ve got a 220mm hydraulic type single disc brake up front for adequate stopping power and control. The rear brake uses a hydraulic single-disc with a 190mm size, enhancing overall braking ability.

Plus, for a smooth and controlled ride, the Crossfire 150 XS rocks an inverted telescopic front suspension that soaks up bumps like a champ. And you won’t be hitting the gas station too often with its 11-liter fuel tank, perfect for those longer rides.

In a nutshell, the Crossfire 150 XS promises an exhilarating and comfortable ride for those seeking thrills on two wheels. And here’s the cherry on top – when you buy the Brixton Crossfire 150 XS, you get a manufacturer’s warranty of two years or 20,000km (whichever comes first), plus online genuine parts purchase service by MForce Bike Holdings Sdn. Bhd.

  • the Cromwell 1200 is a combination between classic design and modern technology.

With its classic vintage design and modern features, the Cromwell 1200 has the potential to dethrone the ever-popular Triumph Bonneville 120 as the motorcycle of choice for enthusiasts in Malaysia.

  • Brixton Cromwell 1200 is to be available in Malaysia soon.
  • Features 1200cc two-cylinder engine capable of producing 80hp and 110Nm. 

During the launch, MForce also previewed the all-new Brixton Cromwell 1200 from Brixton Motorcycles.

For those not in the loop, Brixton Motorcycles is a brand owned by Austrian-based KSR Group. However, the manufacturing plant is located in China to ensure the brand remains affordable for the global market.

Nevertheless, the Brixton Cromwell 1200 (codename GK1200) first appeared at the 2021 EICMA show in Milan. 

The Cromwell 1200 is equipped with a 1,222cc parallel-twin SOCH liquid-cooled engine capable of pushing around 83hp @ 6,500rpm and peak torque of 110Nm @ 3,000rpm.

The retro machine adopts the same basic design as the iconic Triumph Bonneville, with a circular headlight, flat seat, spoke wheels and two long chrome exhausts running parallel to the ground.

Mechanically, the Cromwell 1200 features KYB suspension, Nissin brakes, Bosch electronics including ABS, traction control and multiple riding modes. 

It also packs with full LED light setup and a TFT display.

The bike is also fitted with cruise control, making it suitable for a long trip. 

According to MForce, the bike is still in testing stages and is currently undergoing an endurance test to ensure it passes all the requirements before being put on sale in Malaysia.

The Brixton Cromwell 1200 is said to be available for around RM50k once it is officially launched in Malaysia. 

Although the push for electric vehicles is propelled by the world’s plan for a cleaner environment, most of us can’t even afford a decent electric motorcycle.

Energica, Zero Motorcycles are among those who make and sell an electric bike with a hefty price tag to help justify the cost of long-range batteries and high-performance electric motors.

However, there are others who are taking a different route to ensure the accessibility to electric two-wheelers.

KSR-owned Brixton Motorcycles is currently developing a low-cost electric bike, as confirmed by the latest patents.

The new design patents showcased one of the simplest-looking electric scooters we have ever seen.

While we say it looks simple, the design is rather unique. The bike feature a uber-simple frame that carries the battery and electronics positioned at the lowest point of the structure.

The street-legal electric scooter is also fitted with an upside-down fork that handles the damping up front and a single sprung seat.

Like any other Brixton model, the electric scooter will also feature Brixton’s iconic “X” in the centre of the lamp.

Meanwhile, the bike looks to be fitted with a single circular instrument above the front headlamp.

Chinese motorcycle manufacturer is certainly stepping up their game including Brixton Motorcycles.

Last year, the company showcased the Cromwell 1200 at EICMA 2021, which was deemed as a worthy rival against the Triumph Bonneville.

The Cromwell 1200 features 1,200cc parallel-twin SOCH liquid-cooled engine capable of making 80.5hp @ 6,500rpm and 110Nm @ 3,000rpm.

While the Cromwell shows Brixton capability to challenge the big bike segment, there is no denying that the biggest demand lies in middleweight motorcycles ranging from 400cc to 700cc.

In an effort to further meet the demand for mid-capacity motorcycles, Brixton is set to roll out the new Crossfire 500 XC.

Unlike the standard Crossfire 500 that is clearly a road-oriented motorcycle, the XC is built to ride in all kinds of terrain, including light off-road.

Brixton will introduce the Crossfire 500 XC later this year with some information about the motorcycle that is already available on the company official website.

The XC will feature the same 486cc parallel-twin engine that makes 47hp and 43Nm.

Selepas berbulan spekulasi yang disusuli dengan beberapa dokumen paten, akhirnya Brixton Motorcycles mendedahkan Cromwel 1200 2022.

Sekalipun motosikal jenama Britain milik syarikat Austria (KSR Group) itu dihasilkan di China, namun pelancaran Cromwell 1200 seakan menghadirkan masa depan yang cerah bagi Brixton Motorcycles.

Meskipun rekaan keseluruhan jelas diinspirasikan daripada jenama terkemuka Triumph Bonneville, Cromwell 1200 masih lagi didatangkan dengan ciri terkini antaranya lampu LED penuh, ABS dan paparan skrin TFT.

Brixton Cromwell 1200 ini juga menawarkan 80hp pada 8,500rpm dan 108Nm pada 3,500rpm sekaligus setaraf dengan Bonneville T120 yang menghasilkan 79.1hp dan 105Nm.

Sementara itu, sistem suspensi merangkumi penyerap hentakan KYB manakala aspek brek dikendalikan kaliper brek Nissin dengan cakera brek 310mm depan dan 260mm belakang yang dipadankan bersama tayar 18″ depan dan 17″ belakang.

Antara ciri menarik lain ditawarkan adalah:

  • fungsi ride-by-wire
  • dua mod tunggangan
  • tangki 16L
  • tinggi tempat duduk 800mm
  • berat bersih 235kg

Menurut Brixton, Cromwell 1200 ini boleh mencapai kelajuan maksima 198km/j.

Months after the patent application leaked online, Brixton has finally unveiled the 1200cc retro motorcycle in China.

The GK1200 is equipped with a 1,200cc parallel-twin SOCH liquid-cooled engine capable of pushing between 80 and 85hp @ 6,500rpm and peak torque of 110Nm @ 3,000rpm.

The retro machine adopts the same basic design as the iconic Bonneville, with a circular headlight, flat seat, spoke wheels and two long chrome exhausts running parallel to the ground.

According to reports, the GK1200 features KYB suspension, Nissin brakes, Bosch electronics including ABS, traction control and multiple riding modes. It also packs with full LED light setup and a TFT display.

While further details remain scarce, Brixton might reveal the full specifications of the 2022 model in EICMA in November.

A few months ago, it was rumoured that Brixton is working on an all-new retro-twin 1200cc motorcycle based on the concept model introduced back in 2019.

It turns out the rumour was true, as confirmed by a new design patent that shows a 3D rendering of the final production model.

While the previous rumour and concept model did not reveal the engine capacity, the 3D renderings clearly show 1200 badging on the side panels, confirming the company intention of competing with Triumph’s iconic Bonneville range.

Codename M31, the bike is designed entirely in Austria by Brixton but will be manufacture in China by Gaokin. The same approach is taken by Triumph, whereby all mass models, including the Bonneville, is manufactured in Thailand.

Nevertheless, the M31 shows a daring resemblance to the Bonneville, including the frame design.

Other similar aspects include a vertically mounted radiator behind the front wheel and a SOHC cylinder head with a rocker-operated valve.

However, it remains to be seen whether the M31 will offer the same engine performance as the current Bonneville range, but if they do, it would be something worth looking out for.

Nonetheless, it is safe to assume that the M31 will not feature top-notch specifications than the Bonneville to offer a more affordable price range.

Brixton likely intends to unveil the new motorcycle later this year as a 2022 model.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Brixton Motorcycles, but the Austrian manufacturer is back with the latest and biggest bike yet, the 2020 Brixton Crossfire 500. Unveiled for the European market, the finalised specs have been released on their official website. (more…)
