    This means a frame that surrounds the motor? If so, my new Lifan is like this and I think they are making more and more of their bikes this way after problems with the other ones... The Lifan 200 - B has a frame like this, and I think I heard the NEW version of the Lifan 200 III's are like this as well.

    The review of the Varadero 125 is quite positive: http://www.bikercafe.co.uk/reviews/b...adero-125.html

    A Dual Sport 250 V-twin made by a Chinese company will make a fine and affordable bike. Carl, you should speak to your connection...

    I'm on it already. Problem is they plan their bike lines 2-3 years in advance. Don't seem to be very flexible but there's all kinds of reasons why that I don't understand. Being able to set aside some resources to crank out one-off Frankensteined prototypes would be good though!

    Also, if Honda put the AX1 engine in a bike like the Verarado 125, it would sell well. Don't know why they dropped that engine.

    Not to be rude to anyone, especially to our all-mighty king and leader, carl, but we have gotten way off topic (I think I started it :blink:) and I look forward to seeing more videos of the club, Peter, now that the weather is getting warmer.

    I agree, this thread should be 2 or three separate threads! Wonder what happened to our Nordic brothers and sisters?
