    I would like to see Ural, DNEPR and Chang Jiang work cooperatively, in developing the engines. They all had the engine and never really did anything substantial with it, since it is now 2015 and with all the technological advancements, seems they could just begin now and combine resources to do it. It seems obvious that if there would ever be a Chinese Harley it be called a Chang Jiang. It does not have to be a super bike, it does not have to be state of the art, however it could be eventually. I take some offense and seeing old brand names become nothing more than badges on common copied designs coming out of china or even new version of old designs, it could be done better. Old Brands can be resurrected, but there should be a real link to their history, that engine is a link back and to me does represent a starting point. However that would only work if seriously backed we real talent and resources.

    Please do a post of the chinese Jawa copy :D


    (Usually I am enthusiastic of new use of "old" technology, but even with all this retro boom everywhere I am bit skeptical about the success of modern air cooled boxer engine. It would be all too good if simple and sturdy back to basics bike would be developed.)

    Among the early motorcycles produced in China under license, there were also the Czechoslovakian Jawa 250, assembled in Shangai with the "Xingfu"brand, and produced still today. Up, there are a perfect "clone" of the Jawa "Typ 353" (first pic), the Xing-Fu 250 in the normal version (second pic) and with a new "coachwork" in fiberglass (third pic). All these bikes have a single-cylinder engine derived from the Jawa "Perak" (a project of the '50s!), with 14 hp...but the diabolic Chineses engineers obtained also a "Sport" version, with petal admission valve, with a little stronger power, 22 hp.

    I would like to have motorcycle called an "FU 250"

    These China Jawas look actually maybe better than those very old Jawas they are based on. That police Jawa would be rather awesome, if it would have a seat for the passenger.

    And....brilliant! Chinese Jawa or MZ copy FU 250 would be the perfect bike

    None of these are likely in production today, Chang Jiang is now Hongdu Industry Aviation Group.

    The engine in the Jawa was a work of art...
