loncin introduces ADV model


Expedition Leader

Chinese motor maker Loncin is showing a new machine aimed at ADV riders. It's called the 650 DS8. Engine is a single cylinder Rotax design, which used to be used by BMW in the G650 GS. Price was not available.

With 50 hp and a 400 lb curb weight, the DS8 is not the best choice for wheelying across Tiananmen Square, let alone evading the Chinese constables afterwards. But it looks like a reasonable choice for a fly and ride vacation in China.
