Hmmm.... steel frame and swingarm, reminds me a bit Yamaha Seca with a copy of 650 kawi motor, oh well... If it's made like the "Great Wall" in the Dakar race, I don't have much fate in this one, it will finish last if at all.

JamieDaugherty is an unknown quantity at this point
Wait, I thought the BMW S1000RR has already raced the TT? So that would mean it was the first Chinese-made motorcycle to enter the event.

8541Hawk - interesting article. As for any Ninja resemblence the article said it's a 650 twin, that would be more of a 650SV replicate. Certainly it wouldn't be competitive with any 650cc iL4s but I would guess with enough UK tuners working on it this bike would be a real hoot to ride!

The Ninja 650R is a twin..... it's a parallel twin but still a twin

+1 and so the Ninja 500, GS500, GS400 and few more models... This is not a new configuration! Just general knowledge
