    @9:27 “it states the wheelbase is at 48.8””
    That cannot be correct.

    In Finland a few people has been enthusiastic of Asiawings, but the story never develops to be a love story. They buy the bike and soon realize that it is crap, and then talk no more about the bike.

    the guys in China know about the shortages of the chinese made bikes. But with some skills and better parts from TaoBao you can convert it in an acceptable machine. It also provides the fulfillment of wrenching desires (at least for me)
    After having the X2 made reliable and running it for nearly 5000km without failing now I consider a Asiawing L (X/D) 450 Enduro to find the weakness and make it better. But maybe I start with the better version that has already a lot of CNC machined parts on it.

    Just found this thread after I posted on an older thread about this bike. I don't know how to delete my old posts. I have the 2016 off-road model (bought second hand). I have ridden this thing HARD. I mean very hard, and several times I've crashed HARD on the pavement. I'm converting it to supermoto soon, because the dirt tracks are too far from me without having to buy a truck to transport it to them. One issue - seems to be a faulty starter which you can buy off taobao (the CRF model I presume because it says "imported"). I just can't believe the abuse this thing has taken and not fallen apart. I had my expectations much lower to be quite honest, for a China bike.

    Here's a lil' video I made of me in my suburb on the outskirts of Guangzhou. And, I say some stuff on the vid that - let me put it this way - DO NOT ATTEMPT to do certain things I do or that I talk about doing in regards to law enforcement.

    Skip to the ten minute mark to see me make a really stupid mistake that could have gone much worse! And let me add that this was before the lunar new year, so lesson learned! I won't be repeating the same mistakes twice! I was not paying attention and did not know that there was any obstacle below when I jumped off the steps. All I could do was give it a shot of throttle when I came upon the stuff. Another DOH! And my monologue is pretty dumb and meandering in retrospect so pay it no mind. Ah, the joys of being bi-polar, haha!
