Nice size to ride around here in the mountains. So there is no more new DF250RTBs available? Every place I looked was sold out. I wonder if it was a problem meeting EPA. Still waiting for the Genuine 400cc to be available in the USA. Miss my DF250RTB some.
    I sold my green 2016 RTA a few months ago and really miss it. My wallet and wife said I did not need two bikes. Since then, I've had a V-Star 650 and now a VTX1300. I did tons of research on what other engines could more easily go in the DF frame. What I started to focus was a Honda 400EX ATV engine. The geometry is similar to the 250 China engine and there are lots of performance parts. A little exhaust header work would need to be done.

    Seriously thinking of building a Shadow 600 bobber, but if anyone in the Midwest (I live in MO) wants to sell an DF250RTA (Springer front) shoot me a message.***

    hey all, got 27,650 miles on her now. at least since the speedometer drive gear broke. About two of three monthd ago. so maybe add a grand to that...Got a new one. Was ready to install... saw my frame was cracked.. not just cracked but broke in two places. I figured it was a hardcore pot hole I hit yesterday , gonna see what I can do about it. will set up pictures as I can. Overall she is still strong and still rocks the road. If i cannot fix her, I will be hunting another one. seen a few sites have them in stock. fingers crossed I can get another one. No fingers crossed I can fix my China Girl.

    Be careful and verify that those dealers have them in stock. The bobbers are not currently being imported from my understanding.

    The last time I looked at the EPA/DOT site (updated this month with the 2018 li, it shows a line across the spreadsheet for Dongfang, and several models of their bike listed for their 223cc engine. Keep in mind that not all the bikes end up here, but they would be legal. The last certification was for 2018, as the 2019 models are being certified and showing up on the database as well, and it still lists the following models for DF: DF250RTA, DF250RTB, DF250RTC, DF250RTD, DF250RTE, DF250RTF, DF250RTR, DF250RTS). Zongshen is still their engine's OEM.

    I don't know what engine model they use; I have only seen the manufacturer listed as 'Chongqing Zongshen Motorcycle Engine Manufacture Co., Ltd.' I am guessing it is Dongfang's proprietary engine specific to several models they manufacture and import here. It does state 223cc as the size, but it does not get into engine model number, only technical details. The model bikes listed are 'DF250RTA, DF250RTB, DF250RTC, DF250RTD, DF250RTE, DF250RTF, DF250RTR, DF250RTS' but that does not mean all of them will be coming, only certified. I am fairly certain they are continuing the same engine they had when you had your bobber; companies tend to keep renewing their certificate year after year. TMEC, Dongfang, CSC, and Bashan, as far as big bikes go (as opposed to seemingly dozens of scooter manufacturers) keep renewing the same bikes.

    My long gone 2012 DF250RTB had the 167FMM engine 229cc pushrod engine.
    I believe the newer DF250RTB had the 165FMM 223cc overhead cam engine.

    The DF250RTG had the 165FMM engine 223cc overhead cam engine. It has a little more power than the 167FMM.
