    It seems that WK Bike have extended their business with Hanway, they picked up the Hanway RAW 125 last year as their RT 125. They now are offering the Hanway X-RAY II as their SM125.


    1,899.00 GBP = 3,006.07 USD

    Wonder if any review will be done on this latest addition to the WK Bikes family?

    We can be sure eventually it will get a review, Hanway was at one time part of the Qingqi Group. The X-ray in that has a Suzuki 125 engine. I believe in or about 2009 the Qingqi Group was broken up, some of their executives were charged with corruption. Hanway was a part of that group and uses the Suzuki 125/200cc engines manufactured in Jinan. The little RT125 uses a GS125 frame but sources its YBR125 engine out of Jianshe. The main plant for Qingqi is now part of CSG as so is Jianshe.

    Suzuki DR125SM is no longer offered in the UK, this offering is similar, but has a perimeter frame.

    Nice looking bike. Is the Japanese ignoring some market segments only to be filled by the Chinese made bikes? It does make sense if the Japanese sell the toolings and design off to the Chinese be it their joint venture partner or not.

    The only 125cc motorcycle Suzuki is offering in the UK is their Van Van, it has the same engine as the WK SM125 as does the Sinnis Apache 125 that also uses that 125cc single and some other models manufactured by Qingqi that Sinnis offers.
    The Sinnis Apache is popular in the UK.
    Suzuki sells allot of the 125cc models in China under its brand name. However they do not sell any dual sport models there, only commuters.
    Hanway is not limited to selling only 125cc Suzuki engines, Hanway also puts the Zongshen NC250 engine in that perimeter frame used in their X-Ray.

    I so wish the KLX 300 engine was put into either the X-ray 1 or 2 as the STR is starting to look dated

    Maybe it is a matter of time before they put in a bigger engine.

    WK is clearing out its inventory of their 125Sport at 1599.00, they have new models to replace them a sport 125 and also 125TTR referencing the Isle of Man TT Race.

    125TTR

    These both sell for 1899.00

    The OEM of the Sport is Shineray, they offer that model as a XY250-3 in the Ukraine with a 250cc DOHC engine.

    The WK/CFmoto 650NK is being updated visually for next year from these online patent 3D designs closer to the CFmoto 150NK perhaps Kiska had a hand at revamping the bike. ABS as standard as anything over a 125 will be required by law to have them from 2017.

    I do hope they will produce a faired bike in the future would be a nice little bike to ride having ridden a ER-6F "Ninja 650R" 2011 model a lot, with clipons and a Kiska designed fairing would be class to ride.
