Don't Miss The Boat

CSC Motorcycles is certifying the CSC Cyclone RX-3 motorcycle in the United States. This new 250cc adventure bike is a great motorcycle, and we’re not saying that because we’re the folks bringing these bikes here. We know quality, we know manufacturing, we know Zongshen, and we know motorcycles. This is a great machine.



We posted a bit about this motorcycle elsewhere and our plans for bringing it to America. We asked for your input, you responded, and we listened.

$2,895.

Yep, you read that right. The first shipment of these bikes will sell for $2,895 each. After the first shipment leaves the port, the price goes up to the bike’s normal price of $3,495. The $2,895 price is a one-time offer. Once the ship leaves port, we won’t sell any more motorcycles at this introductory price. Kick, scream, yell, call us names, it won’t matter. The $2,895 price is for the first shipment only.

We know the RX-3 Cyclone is a superior motorcycle and it’s the perfect size for real-world adventure riding. But we need to get the word out. That’s why we’re selling the first shipment of these bikes for just $2,895.

After the first shipment, we’re going to sell the RX-3 for $3,495, which is a hell of a deal. It’s a lot of motorcycle for $3,495: Water-cooled, fuel-injected, overhead cams, counterbalanced, disk brakes, adjustable suspension, 6-speed transmission, rack, luggage, electric start, engine guards, full instrumentation, all the road amenities, a 1-year warranty, and the list goes on. But that’s the price after the first group ships to the US. You might not want to wait that long.

You might be thinking a Chinese motorcycle, no dealer network, “just” a 250…why would I go for that? We’re going to answer those questions one at a time, but not here. We’ll be posting a series of articles on our CSC blog (just go to www.CSCMotorcycles.com and look for the blog). You’ll see.

We’re not asking for any money now. All you need to do is call us (800 884 4173) and get your name on the list with the color you want. When the bike completes the US certification process, we’ll call you and ask for a $500 deposit. If you change your mind at that point, you’re off the list and you won’t be able to get back on. That first shipment may be 44 bikes, or it may be 440. It all depends on how many of you recognize the start of a good thing and want to get in on the ground floor.

One time, folks. Now or never. It’s your call, and our advice is simple: Don’t miss the boat.

The weight listed on the spec sheet seems much too heavy for a 250.

Yes it appears underpowered but it has cool LED lights as standard equipment.

Topcase, steel frame, engine guards, etc. Would be more attractive if they'd gone for a KLR styled bike, even with the 250 cc motor. It appears to be a 650 GS on a budget, but 385 lbs is really heavy for a 250. Wonder how much of that can be removed.
