Not just yet, still some problems with clutch, wheels (spokes in rear wheel breaking, snapping), etc.
Mates own them over here (Beijing / Shanghai) and know of two that got bike replacements (within the first 1500k) as too much small annoying problems with the build quality. Engine seems to be a 99.9% copy of the Honda XR400......

Engine looks like an air cooled Honda rip off, xr400? Suspension is probably total shit. Otherwise not bad.

Also, fuel injection? Fuck carbs on an adv bike IMO.

?????????

If it's the same bike they sell here in Turkey then it's a nice looking replica made with the cheapest possible parts and metal.

The bike has a cool look to it but it comes across as very cheapo (which is appropriate if it's cheap!). The render looks like they borrowed some other bike images - e.g. that exhaust looks like a 2-into-1 - dual exhaust valves?

Gotta wonder if it can beat a CRF250L or DRZ400 on price and/or build quality in the US.

From their webpage;
"The following power test session unveils the true verification because we have very strict standards. Riders responsible for the test are two experienced former off-road athletes, who are experts of motorcycle travel after retirement and masters of motorcycles at the same time."

That makes all the difference, I was a little worried

see here my review of the X5 (with carburetor).

http://www.mychinamoto.com/forums/sh...Yuan-X5-review

I have it now 9+k km without major fail. I am happy for carburetor version as I dont trust the EFI version yet.
Important: stay permanently on top of maintenance!!

Air cooled 400 2-valve motor - no, 4 valves XR400 clone engine, dual exhaust
18L tank - no 15 Litre
Fairing - poorest plastic; but new pieces costs me $5 each
Low fender - yes
Dual front discs? - no, acceptable single disk, rear brake is poor
Max speed 130km/h

I am afraid all the bolts would break off if I owned it.

Sorry; couldn't give it to me. I'd rather have a 1996 XR400. Perhaps the Chinese are getting better but they aren't there yet. My experiences with Chinese bikes (purchased by my brother and a friend) convinced me that they are poorly built crap.

Even if the bike in the picture was a Japanese bike; lets say a new Honda 400 dual sport, it still wouldn't offer up the package that people are looking for; not enough power, air cooled engine and too much weight. Really the only thing that design has over a 1996 XR400R is styling trying to make it look like an F800GS.
