    Is Megelli entirely new brand in the North American market?

    As far as I know, in Europe they have a decent reputation.

    By the way, have you photographed the Qingqi's "odd looking fairing"?
    Ask me nothing - I DO NOT speak english. Really...

    Zorge,

    Yes, Megelli is new here in the US so it will have to build reputation all over again! All we really need now is to get some first hand experience and see if the products are as good as they look.

    I have not personally seen QingQi's odd looking fairing bike but have seen the naked version of it. They have had the model around for quite some time but, like their other 250s, seem to have a hard time finding importers for them. too bad too because I think the 250 Suzuki engine should be a great amount of fun and go a long way for helping build their reputation.

    The specs on the Megelli products changed?
    Bennche/ Megelli is copying the specs of the Yamaha WR250X engine, except that Yamaha engine is fuel injected? I cannot see the exact same engine with a Teikei 34mm carburetor getting the same output, can anyone else?
    Do they think they can get a 249cc double over head cam four valve water cooled engine?
    What do they think people are idiots? Will it have titanium intake valves too? How about the ceramic composite cylinders in the Yamaha 249cc engine will it have those as well….can’t wait!

    The specs they are using are identical to the WR250X engine. Except for the aspiration. The Yamaha has a 38mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection, the Megelli has a 34 mm teikei carb.

    6-speed as well, what does Bennche stand for fast as in [ben she] or just BS for short ?

    We seem to be getting different specs on the engine. The specs on the Megelli web site are only for the 125cc model. 27hp at the crank is entirely possible for a 250 but probably probably only with 4 valves and a pretty high compression ratio. The Megelli claims a high compression ration but doesn't spec out 4 valves or water-cooling. It says "liquid" cooling which would normally mean watercooling but in reviewing some video footage from the show I can't find the plumbing or radiator for a watercooled engine anywhere on the models. Also, this doesn;t look anything like a WR250X engine. It actually looks more like the Suzuki based mill in the QingQi/QLink bikes.

    Only way to tell what the bike can do is actually get a ride on one and do some long term testing... maybe even a dyno run or two wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Thx for the updates CC. Now for that long patient waiting game, that i'm not looking forward to. I want more now! =)

    Last I checked the megelli 250s were rated at 16-17 hp via the qlink site and others, dunno whether it was at the crank or backwheel tho. Time to just wait and find out....

    All three are on the Bennche site. The R and S models have a radiator but the M does not. All three are listed as having 27 HP with 11.5 compression and a 6 speed tranny. I would guess, in reality, that the specs for the M are not the same as the others. The R and S would probably require 92+ octane, also.

    All the Meggelli 125cc sold in Europe are air-cooled, they also have the same specs as other 125cc that HSUN offers, 56.5mm x 49.5mm...

    This HSUN has the same specs as the Megelli 125cc, click on the Image it will open the site.


    The HSUN site has the specs on the Euro Meggelli (link to HSUN 125 Meggelli)
