here's a smaller and cheaper Adv
Cool looking bike. Like a 250 GS . I've heard horror stories bout parts availability though . I thought about getting one of those but if theres one thing I do not want to skimp on quality control it would be a motorcycle.
i hope they make it to the states. seems like a really cool steed from what i have read!
This bike could be the start of China motorcycle industry establishing a beachhead in North America!
Zongshen has been making dualsports for a while now. You can get a spankin new 200cc for around a grand maybe 1200 bucks. But as I said parts are not readily available and that would need to be addressed before any mass market took hold.
I was kinda disappointed to find out it was Chinese as the first I read of it was from the M1nsk side of it and that sort of intrigued me. Badge engineering, bah.
Overall it looks like a scaled down Tiger 800 with a 250 thumper engine. Kinda cheating on calling it a 300, but then who's never done that before?
I agree on the parts backup etc before it becomes main stream. But.... I see Hyosung Motorcycles out of Korean starting to make inroads here. I've seen them and they are about what you'd expect.
I've seen the likes of Kymco (Taiwan) and Bajaj (India) during my travels in Asia. I rode a Kymco in the Philippines, it felt like a copy of an old Honda that it was.
you guys really want to be 100-200 miles in the boonies on one of those things? your braver than me
more info on a smaller,cheaper and relatively lighter Adv bike

Marketed as a "Honley RX3 Venturer" in the UK.
