Check out Shineray’s latest exercise in creative advertising. First at the ChongQing Motorcycle Expo / CIMTE 2008 we saw a full sized Shineray X2 turned into a 3D parts diagram mobile. Now Shineray brings us the Shineray X2 transformer. Seems the creative department at Shineray has “more than meets the eye”. Hit the break to see the video.
Yoko, a member of the SRMC forum posted a ride report of his trip to Old Town of Lijiang, Yunnan, China aboard his Shineray X2X. The translation through Google Translate was pretty rough but the dozens of pictures he posted tell a great story of travel with friends. Click the break to see a few of the great shots.
A picture of a Shineray X4 was posted on Shineray China’s forum. I was not able to translate any details beyond the drawing with google translation tools. It looks to be based on the Shineray X2 XY250gy-2 but has more of a Honda Transalp setup.
Chinese motorcycle manufacturer Shineray developed a 250cc single powered fully faired sport bike called the XY250-5A Chief 250. It is powered by the same 250cc engine as their X2 MX bike. Styling feels familiar but I can’t say it is a direct copy of any bike on the market. Shineray does not currently import to the United States. There is a guy in UK working on importing them. You can contact him on Shineray Forum
Have a look at the XY250-5A spec sheet. Looks like a fast little bike.

This may be the coolest display I have ever seen at a motorcycle show. The 2008 Shineray XY250GY with all it’s parts suspended as if it just exploded. The XY250GY also looks great put together. In fact, I would not be surprised if this motorcycle changed the way Americans look at Chinese motorcycles. It has the looks and the specs. The price is good. If the quality is close this may be a winner.
Check out MyChinaMoto.com for more information. While your there be sure to scroll down and check out the Shineray XY200GY-7. It is a dualsport with big racks, front and back, and a 5 gallon tank. It has a nice utility look to it. The wave rotor on the front looks a little out of place but I will let that slide. Besides MyChinaMoto, check out Shineray Owners Forum to get more information from Shineray owners.
