Are these bikes completely domestically produced or are they Suzuki engined? At least it doesn't look like they are selling the 750cc flathead knock-offs of pre-WWII BMWs.



If the quality is anything like their domestically produced aircraft I'll be sure to pass on this one.



At least they promise that their bikes come complete with an engine that includes a crankshaft, connecting rod and even a carburetor. (Does this place them ahead of HD?)



Although I'd like to learn how you produce a 125cc twin that has only one clyinder.

Local cycle shop just started selling Zong Shen bikes. Interesting, inexpensive low displacement alternative bikes.



It seems that Zong Shen has been making parts for Honda for decades. Finally decided to assemble their own knock-offs.



Perhaps the bikes you've been riding were made by 10 year olds all along?

knock-offs?

These Chinese 750 cc bikes (have a side-car and 22kW blasting power at 4000 RPM) are actually copies of Russian 750 cc Urals. Those in turn are copies of pre-WWII BMWs. We are talking about knock-offs of knock-offs. So you thought H-D is not cutting edge, think again.

The local honkawsuxyamuki dealer (I am serious, they sell ALL the Japanese brands) carries these things. Look a lot like their Honda counterparts, but much cheaper. Fit and finish are great, for the third world. They even sell spare engines, helmets and Chinese Herbal stuff....



Would I own one, uh, no. But I think my big ass on a 250 might be illegal motorcycle abuse! The 3 wheelers are interesting though, we have nothing like them here! I especially like the YL100ZKF..... Gotta look now, don't you......

Some of these Chinese manufacturers, like Sundiro, (actually owned by Honda) and are licensed by Japanese manufacturers to make bikes in China. There's been a ton of these that have started selling bikes here, and a lot of them are blatantly illegal copies of existing Japanese designs. I would expect these companies to be a serious threat if they can make their own designs; they can make bikes much cheaper than the Japanese can.

If their bikes are as good as their website AND their english translation, I'll buy one of each!

Geez, what is this world coming to.

I'm sure their 'owners manual' is a tri-fold pamphlet that looks photo copied and comes with a bogus address on the back, AND if you call the company....

the same person answers the phone every time!
