If I was a smaller guy I'd be all over getting one of these. I hate the fact my bike is worth more than my car

Not on my radar. Chinese design, manufacture, and quality control. You take your chances. At least it's not worth much more than the cost of a tune up of a Pannigali.

I'm interested in the "floral brake design" and "fashionable travel suitcase"


It's a junk bike no doubt, but practically free, so there's that.

and the "luxury police accessories"
it sounds like "chinglish" which is always an amusing read

I'm thinking that if it weren't for the way the bunch of us here tend to use our bikes (ride hard, put away dirty), it might hold up for more than a season.

Looks better than the other C-bikes, at least.

Chinese Bike!

Yes my pal bought one similar down in Equador for $2800. and rode it hard for 2 months. Said it was a lot cheaper than a 250 KTM $18,000. But still took him all over the place and sold it before he came home. He'd do it again. Said the motor was very strong for a 250. Durability is not up to Jap quality but neither is the price.

Eh?

Spec sheet doesn't list bore/stroke but gives us the overall dimensions of the engine instead.

The Chinglish actually isn't too bad on this one.

Looks OK to me. Some of the Chinese factories are building quality stuff these days, and for that price it will probably be good value.

$2895 MSRP California. To me that means $3999cdn plus $695 delivery/prep and all taxes here in Canada. Plus we'll have to wait a year while it hurdles through all of the Transport Canada payola deposits to un-named Bahamian bank accounts. Fuck, just buy a stone axe reliable 2014 DR650 for $5295, and bolt some Happy Trails boxes on it.
