As a positive means of creating value and ease in the Nigeria transportation sector, a new model of motorcycle with fuel efficiency, power and durability as its unique selling points has been unveiled by Boulos Enterprises Limited, the company which owns the credit of building Nigeria’s first motorcycle plant.

Haojue Xpress was introduced as a five-speed gear motorcycle with a highly efficient engine, integrated with many advanced technologies, resulting in the economical, powerful and durable attributes. It also has a non-commercial version for private use
Haojue Xpress motorcycle has been tested and proven to have its fuel consumption lowered by 30 percent compared with other major competing brands in Nigeria and globally. Thus, during the tests, the riders were able to prove that the owner of the motorcycle can save more fuel and earn more income.
With excellent performance at low and middle speed and with a strong torque of 10 Nm generated at low speed, the overall performance improvement of 25 percent has been observed. Thus, irrespective of the gear position – at startup, during acceleration or during climbing of a hill, the rider will always have enough power and speed to move faster.
The optimized layout of the engine coupled with the piston backed cooling technology lengthens engine life span even when working with heavy load every day thus excellent engine performance is guaranteed.

It also comes with a basic kick startup system, a high strength light aluminum alloy wheels that resist road impacts, thus making the motorcycle safer than the old-fashioned wire wheels fitted to other motorcycles in commercial motorcycle (Taxi-Model) market segment.
Presenting Haojue Xpress to the dealers, Lekan Olagunju of the Sales Division, disclosed that as a result of its fuel efficiency, the motorcycle could do 75 kilometres on one litre of fuel, meaning that its 13-litre tank can take an owner through nearly a thousand kilometers.
Ugbaja in his opening remarks had thanked the dealers for their support over the decades, urging them to take the opportunity presented by the launch of the new Haojue Xpress, “which is the best in its class,” to take the “warm, working relationship” to a higher level.
