I also believe this is the same spec motor, flywheel and all, as the recent G650X series.
Don't think it has anything to do with china anymore,

Same engine as g650x and all rotax 650 singles (kinda)...with a few different bits..like less HP, more electrical power. Bigger stator would rob some HP so that makes sense to me...some new european standard next year for bikes with 48hp,

We only know what they tell us. and we know they NEVER lie.
