Qlink to Import Megelli 250M, 250S and 250R Motorcycles to the USA
Scooter-news.com reported a sighting of a small displacement Qlink sport bike at the 2009 Dealer Expo. As Scooter News mentioned it looks a lot like a Ducati sport bike. I figured Alternative Cruisers would have some information on it since they usually cover Qlink cruisers. Sure enough they did.
Turns out this bike is a 125cc single (in Europe) and a 250cc (in the USA). The designed is by Megelli of England. These bikes debuted at EICMA back in 2007. Price range will be $3000 to $3500. The 125cc engine is produced by SYM Taiwan and has a ceramic coated cylinder. There is also a 50cc version in the works.
The Megelli website explains:
75% of all components are Taiwanese manufactured and raw materials purchased are to Western standards to ensure the quality box remains ticked. The power unit is purchased from SYM Taiwan which includes a ceramic coating cylinder – not a cheap option, but worth every one of your hard earned Euros! Developing a genuine 11hp, this unit has a proven track record and creates a respectful power to weight ratio for a lively ride.
