Loncin LX650 And New Loncin Engines At CIMA 2010

Loncin LX650


Loncin Motorcycles had a large presence at the 2011 CIMA show in China this year. On display was the LX 650 most likely powered by the same 650 single they build for BMW G650GS.

The LX650 borrows it’s looks from the vTwin 650 Suzuki Gladius.

Loncin also displayed modern liquid cooled engines that we can assume will allow Loncin to meet strict emissions requirements around the world.  The TQ260 four stroke 260cc engine, the YF300 four stroke 300cc engine and the SH125 scooter engine were on display but did not seem to be in any of the Loncin bikes at CIMA.

Benelli Due 765 At CIMA

1010 Benelli Due 765

Benelli had the Due 765 on display at this years CIMA China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition in Chongqing, China. It appears to be production ready and offer an inline 2 cylinder alternative to the Honda Hornet, Monster 696 and Kawasaki Z750.

A few years back Benelli was bought by a Chinese company Qianjiang World who has been putting new money into the company and developing new models. The Due 765 will most likely be a 2010 model.



Zongshen Cyclone Prototype At 2009 CIMA

Zongshen Cyclone SUV

Kevin Duke took a trip out to the 2009 CIMA Motor Show in Chongqing, China and just published the first of a 3 part series on the 27 motorcycle manufacturers in attendance. Footage of the Loncin, Lifan, Shineray, Qingqi, Haojue, Xgjao, CFMoto and others were highlighted in the first video clip.

Most interesting was a picture of a prototype Zongshen Cyclone that takes styling queues from the Suzuki Gladius 650 and Kawasaki ER6N. It features USD forks, wave rotors and a liquid cooled single cylinder engine I am guessing displaces 500cc. This would be high displacement for a Chinese motorcycle. However there has been a push for larger displacements in the Chinese market. It has some nice details including under seat exhaust and integrated turn signals. This is a big departure from the usual parts bin fair that usually adorns Chinese bikes.

I am looking forward to more information on this bike and the rest of the MO series on the CIMA show.



2008 Shineray XY250GY Motorcross

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 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.
