    凯越500X (Excelle 500X ??)


    never heard about such brand before. they released ADV bike based on Loncin's 500cc twin engine. there's version with 19"/17" spoke wheels and those are designed for tubeless (!!!) tires. also KYB suspension is claimed. 198 kg wet weight. and all this just for 38k RMB... well, Chinese market is getting more and more interesting.

    Tubless spokes wheels.
    I am impressed.

    Let's see how about quality after its rolling on the roads. The design is shameless but with that price it will find owners.
    The engine is the same as in Motrac MG500.
    I wish someone takes that engine into a lightweight aluminum frame, leave all plastics away, all nice to haves as aftermarket options and target on max weight of 160kg.
    Only two things should be in this conception from beginning: ABS and a luggage rack or luggage connection system.

    shameless design you mean because it is too obviously GS-like looking?

    personally, I would give it a go. I even do like it's design - definitely looks narrower, lighter and more fit, than MG500.

    but I am happy owner of two JH600 already. although, I would like to try this "Excelle".

    The producer "Zhufeng" is not a well-known brand even in China, let the market to test the bike.

    Maybe at least the side stand is better than on G310GS. 😀 .... 15000 G 310 GS bikes have call in for potential breaking

    ok, so what about new 850 and 750 GS models? I heard about recalls because of problems with new engine... which is produced by Loncin

    178KG unladden is not too bad. 30 less than a Benelli TRK if I remember correctly.
