    Thanks of the vid and pics. Your Skyteam looked like a quality bike - even more than mine. I have myself 250 ST, and it is quality. You seem to have though a different engine than I have. I wonder has Skyteam begun to use a different engine or has it used always in V-raptor a different engine.

    Great news Skyteam is still going strong!!!!!!

    That is one bloody beefy rear wheel. Bike looks great, and must be sweet to ride.

    cheers!

    I almost bought this.



    Awesome. Would had been certainly big fun too. Then I however became "reasonable". What I have learnt is that a man really needs many bikes. Maybe Or if not many, then at least The Right One

    It is difficult to get valid specs on anything out of china. But more hp offers higher speeds and with less strain as rpm increase. More torques offers better take off but limits higher speed, altering the gearing will not increase the hp or torque but shifts it either up or down with the related rpm.

    Usually the torque is in Newman meters…which is 1.3 to 1 into lb feet.

    The 223cc has 10.5 Kw or 14.28 hp @7500 TQ is at 16.5Nm @ 5500 or 12.69 lb ft
    The 199cc (Suzuki) 11.5 Kw or 15.64hp @8000 TQ is at 14.5Nm @ 8500 or 11.15 lb ft

    The engines are very close…

    Then consider the 223cc OHC manufactured by Loncin.

    12.3 Kw @9000 rpm that’s 16.7hp
    With 18N.m @ 7500 rpm that’s 13.8lb ft of torque.
