Standard switch gear including a high beam flasher. Also gear position indicator. Overall a pretty well done bike. Total cost off the dealer floor is $ 1225.00 USD. Runs like a swiss watch, a real blast around town.




Beemer Boy, thanks for the great travel stories and the glimpses at motorcycle exotica.

I recognize the motor on your new bike...it's the same as a Suzuki DR200 in the US. The countershaft sprocket guard and the oil filter cover are styled differently, but the rest of the motor appears to be pure DR200. If it's as rugged as the Suzuki version, you've got a fine scoot. Do you know if Qingqi are building them for Suzuki?
