    Hi,

    I am interested in finding out who makes this bike in China - 125 and 150cc. It is imported into South Africa by a company called 'Big Boy' who have a fairly extensive range of bikes and scooters.
    Thanks

    That is a CG125 and every single manufacturer in China makes them.

    This is my favorite version of a CG125, its made by Wuyang

    Wuyang is partnered with Honda and also is separately Guangzhou Wuyang Motors Co., Ltd,
    and is part of the Guangzhou Motors Group The former Wuyang Honda is a 50/50 venture.

    Here is the Alibaba site for Wuyang the domestic subsidiary.

    Big Boy is importing from a number of manufacturers, not just one.

    The prices seem very reasonable. That CG125 has an MSRP of $980.00 American.




    They have a 223cc OHC powered dual sport that looks like a Shineray they are asking $1850.00 for. I am not sure if that is an OHC engine, they claim 12.5kw of power @8500rpm and that would make me think it is or that they are fudging numbers on a OHV engine.


    This is the Shineray, not identical but very close.


    The 200cc is an OHC

    or at least the bike in the image is.

    Thanks for the information, I am still thinking about buying one. How would one run the bike in properly so that all the engine parts are correctly bedded in?

    For $300.00 more you can get the real Honda.

    It is also manufactured in Nigeria, so that is better for the African economy overall.

    You can get an Honda XR125 for $1,800.00 USD and it be a better choice.

    Thanks for the info. I never looked at new Honda prices as I believed they would be much higher. The prices in the above link are dated 2011. 2012 prices may be a bit higher. Anyway I'm still thinking about it, but it's definitely a better idea to go for a Jap Honda.
    Cheers
