With a ground clearance of 300mm, Asian Beast Bike is able to traverse rocky, steep places easily. The company claims that the motorbike is also suited for city riding with its 4-stroke air cooled engine. The motorbike weighs 108 kg which makes handling easier along with delivering good power to weight ratio. It has a seat height of 900mm.

The Asian Beast 250 is equipped with both electric and kick start along with disc brakes on the front and back. The motorcycle has a 7.5 litre fuel tank.

According to Aman Shrestha, manager at Asian Beast showroom in Nagpokhari, Kathmandu, the Asian Beast 250 is targeted at those who want to balance off-road riding with city rides. “Youngsters will especially prefer this kind of motorcycles,” he added.

The company is offering two years of engine warranty. The company has yet to decide on a location for their service centre.
