    I had decided to buy a QJ150-19C next weekend based on good reviews on this site even though it might not be ideal for much off-road riding. However, I went for one last look around the local bike shops and saw a Yingang YG150-F. Has anyone had any experience with this model? I can't find a thread on it here so decided to start one (apologies if one exists).

    The one in the shop is around 8500RMB and comes fitted with:

    - 14L tank
    - Carry racks (top, side and front)
    - USB charger
    - Cloth saddlebags (water proof)
    - Wet weather gear
    - Knee pads
    - Barkbusters

    Apart from the small engine, this is exactly what I have been looking for. But I'd really appreciate any opinions on the bike and/or company.

    Thanks.

    Yingang comes highly recomended, some people got thier 250 street bike and expierenced outstanding customer service from the factory - search the friendly forum.
    Never heard about their 150cc bikes - but somehow the whole setup reminds me of the whish lists of many XingYue/Shineray GY7 users - but they never did. Seems Yingang listens!

    Ok, sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

    The bike looked and felt good. Unless anyone has any bad reports I'll buy it this weekend. Time to take the plunge!

    I went, I saw, I had a test ride..........but decided against the YG150-F.

    Pros:
    - Great seat
    - Has all the off-road accessories
    - Looks and feels solid

    Cons:
    - Rides like a tank (hard to explain, but it felt much larger than it was, and heavier)
    - Firm clutch (some may prefer it that way)
    - Drum brakes (both back and front engage at the same time) don't provide much stopping power
    - Top speed of 80km/h

    So off I went to the local QJ dealer. Test rode a QJ150-19C and was sold when I got back to the shop. Comfortable, nimble and the engine was surprisingly responsive. Sounds great, looks great, rides great. Took it up in the hills straight out of the shop.

    Would share some pics, but keep getting an error. Will try again later.

    Congratulations! and welcome to the growing 钱江龙 community on MCM.
    Should have bought the orange one, of course :)
    The YingGang looks good, but surprised to hear it is so sluggish, and you can get most of those farkles to go with the QiangJiang.
    I believe the 19C has a slightly more tuned engine than the 19A. Interested to know what speed you are getting.
    Safe Riding!

    Thanks Lobotomous! It's good to be back on a bike.

    I've found most of the farkles on taobao, so shold have them soon. The bike shop said they will make a custom luggage rack and for free. They seem like a good bunch so far.

    Went for a ride down the beach front yesterday and it cruises comfortably on 100, but didn't extend it to the limit (probably only 105 or 110). It's ideal speed is around 90-95.

    Very happy with purchase.
