*CSC 250cc RX-3 Cyclone

Came across this article today. It should be interesting to see how it does in the US marketplace?

385lbs with 18.5 HP, as much as I would like a lot more options in dual sport bikes, I dont know if this one is the answer. Specs do look pretty good though...anyone know what the price will be? The rest of their lineup is roughly $3k-5k...guess i'd have to ride one before i can say if it's a keeper.

The specs do look good. They have a special buy for around 2800. And after the first US shipment hits the soil price goes up to around 3800 (Don't quote me on exact price, it's pretty close I believe)

Have you contacted Cycle World to have them give it a test ride when you get them. I can put you in contact with Mark Hoyer if need be.

We have not contacted any of the mags yet...this is the first time we've posted a price. If you would like to let Mr. Hoyer know, we'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks.

I see you have a couple of examples that you have been riding.

What's the comfortable highway cruise speed? Will it do 75mph?

Are these built to your specifications? or something the Chinese came up with?

I read the first article attached to the first post...I also looked around the site and found the price list for the other bikes, which did not include the RX-3.

The blog link was posted posted after my post, I did read it.

Posting the price information in your reply was nice, but the "did you bother to read it?" was unnecessary...

The bike looks interesting but their wording on the website sounds just like an olde tyme circus promoter.

Setp right up folks!

I'm seeing almost 25 horsepower. About the same HP and weight of my Honda CBR250R.
