    The swm super dual (at the beginning of the video below)looks awesome 53 horsepower 600 plus cc engine used in the Husqvarna before...

    Does anyone know if it's available in China and at what price?

    Apologies if there's already a thread about this

    Not available, and also no indication if its coming. Would be great and my immediate buy as I consider my SWM RS500R as a lightweight favorite.

    Watch link for the best ADV bikes for 2018.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXyn9yK9bFY

    With the Honda AT coming in at number 1.

    After nearly 5000 km riding on my AT (DCT) in Thailand, would I put it at number 1 NO?
    To many KG.
    Great bike but not a great ADV bike IMO.
    From the list on the video, the one to watch is the new KTM 790 ADV.
    That's my 10 cents.

    Nice video.. Way to get 50,000 hits on youtube stitch some adverts together. See you have a channel too. Are you interested in growing it?

    These bikes are obviously lush but I doubt I'd be able to chuck them around much less afford them (atm). Actually I'm in a quandary re. motorcycling in general or maybe it's just motorcycling in China.

    Never get stuck on the bike, it's about the journey. Some of my greatest trips were on very simple motorcycles. The owner of the site, CrazyCarl, opened my eyes to small Chinese bikes on our first trip together... pretty epic stuff on QingQi QM200's.





    Cheers!

    You know I own a Chinese dirt bike:) 300cc , well enduro..

    The great thing about not being able to register a bike in Shanghai is that I'll be forced on to bigger greener pastures... Yes, I've read Both you two's older ride reports... Smashing stuff.

    Let's think, how much is the 沪C now, 90,000? Think I'll ask at the 车所管 tomorrow. Again, good news as it will probably force me to go back to Blighty and experience motorcycling in my own magical isle and further.. Into Europe.

    Good news
    That price would be a nice surprise. Can't believe it because the RS500R is 75k already.

    75k?
    Ive asked about RS650r yesterday and after about 1h (which would indicate that he actually checked) they replied and said RMB69800. Also said that a discount is possible so I reckon Id be able to get it for 68k-69K

    Hi Guys - thanks so much for the info - really appreciate it. I will definitely be checking out the CFMoto 650 and see how it compaes to the others. A friend of mine mentioned the Kawasaki 300 but I'm thinking I will want something bigger. I have met up with a great off-road instructor here in Shanghai and he says he can help organise the licences for Tibet as well as some trips off road around China to help build up my skills. ( Sadly he can't help with my licence ! )There is also a moto cross track just outside Shanghai I can go and practice. I already bought a cheap Chinese 250 to practice on the track there. Thanks again for your help and input - Regards Richard

    Great news Richard.
    Things are looking up.
    As to regards to your friend saying "he says he can help organise the licences for Tibet "
    Well good luck I been trying to ride there for the last 9 years and as of today still not made it lol.
