    Longjia is located in Zhejiang Province, their newest offering is getting some attention.

    250 Buccaneer.



    Sinnis of the UK has added it to its offerings.

    Had not seen this thread, but it makes it (semi) official that we will be getting these in the US via SSR Motorsports. I like CCW's cafe racers, but these bring a v-twin to the table vs. CCW's single.

    I wonder what happened to the Apache 250 from Sinnis? It’s gone from their model line?
    They are still offering the Retrostar 250 though?
    Notice that the Longia Buccaneer is listed now as is the CCW Heist.
    The Sinnis 250 Retrostar has a CV carburetor, while the Apache 250 had EFI. The Apache 250 was dropped for some reason?
    Lexmoto offers its version of the 250 through its Pulse Brand as their Adrenaline 250 @
    1,899.00 GBP = 2,658.35 USD
    The SSR is retailing In the US @
    3,059.00 USD = 2,185.33 GBP
    (The Pulse is the same as the XP250 that SSR is selling.)


    The retro 250 from Sinnis in UK @
    2,295.00 GBP = 3,213.09 USD
    Not offered in the US

    The Heist 250 in UK @
    2,699.00 GBP = 3,778.29 USD
    In the US @
    3,295.00 USD = 2,354.47 GBP

    Some obvious pricing inconsistencies, I expect prices to be higher in the UK they typically include taxes.
    There is a ceiling on what people will pay for any of these, when offered the improved version of the Dual Sport for more the consumer choose the lesser version for less. That being the refined Apache 250 @
    2,495.00 GBP = 3,492.88 USD
    Lost out to the less refined Pulse version.

    I would like to see the version of the XP250 offered in the UK sold in the USA without the EFI, with A CV carburetor. It is a better made and looking version.

    SSR Version

    Sinnis version

    Stainless steel exhaust, bigger brakes…better body work and colors and an oil cooler.

    SSR is selling scooters that are the same crap sold online, they could stop doing that.
    They could sell the XP250 and Retrostar 250 and the 250 Buccaneer and also the Sinnis scooter line as well, they should do that and under the Sinnis brand.
    The then should offer only dirt bikes under the SSR brand.
    As for Benelli they should not connect the brand, those need to be properly funded to enter the USA and the full product line should be launched.
    All about market segmentation and how to address it succinctly.

    I just bought the SSR Buccaneer. I've got 400 miles on it, and I'm having an absolute blast. It will do freeway speeds, it's comfortable, and it handles like a dream. I've had a few quality control issues, but nothing major. The engine is really a gem, and I'm quite happy with the bike so far.

    Charles.
