LML Adreno and Energy: The Faired, The Naked, The Beauty!

There was a time when Bajaj Chetak was ruling the two-wheeler market. There were a few bikes like the Royal Enfields, Yamaha RD350 and Yezdis taking rounds on the Indian roads. TVS Suzuki JV produced a good set of bikes too. But still, something was missing. There was no ‘Adrenaline’ or ‘Energy’ in the market. This is when the famous scooter manufacturer, LML, came with a duo, the Adreno and Energy. One faired and one naked. The kids from the 90s surely remember crushing on these beauties. So, let’s take a look at the bikes that were not able to make a huge mark overall, but had an affair with every guy’s dream.

1999: LML Adreno and Energy | Your Wake Up Call

With a 3-valve, 4-stroke Single Overhead Cam engine under the frame, these two bikes straight out the dreams made their way back in 1999. Before dwelling any further, first, let’s take a look at the engine specs of the bikes.

Engine Specifications

LML Adreno  LML Energy
Engine 3-valve, 4-stroke, SOHC 100cc
Power  8.5hp @9,000rpm
Torque 7.5Nm @6,500rpm
Transmission 5-speed Constant Mesh 4-speed Constant Mesh
Maximum Speed 90kmph 85kmph
Fuel Efficiency 60kmpl

One extra gear was enough to add the 5kmpl on the speedometer. And with a fuel efficiency of 60kmpl, LML’s duo was a great package. All this from a 100cc engine, this does require some level of engineering.

The bikes came with a 14-litres of fuel tank capacity so that anyone could hit the highways and enjoy long routes. The telescopic suspension at the front and hydraulic damped and helical spring at the rear made sure that the rides were comfortable. The wheelbase of 1280mm gave the bikes a good ride quality and the ground clearance of 165mm made sure that Adreno and Energy were capable of taking any Indian road.
