listed by a dealer in Huddersfield at £3500. Couldn't find any info other than:
NEW HONLEY MODEL FOR 2014.
250 ADVENTURE BIKE, AWESOME STYLING AND EQUIPMENT LEVEL.
250 cc WATER COOLED, FUEL INJECTED SINGLE CYLINDER 4-STROKE.
COMES WITH PANNIERS, TOP BOX AND ENGINE GUARDS
'Honley' is a village near Huddersfield, so the shop has probably had the bike specially badged. Very neat looking, BMW influenced, and with good accessories, it looks a very practical bike, BUT it's probably built in China and that brings the usual quality/durability/spares concerns. However, I could be wrong and if anyone knows any more about this bike, please let me know.
It's also branded as a Minsk bike and they took 3 of them on a 10,000k endurance rally across a lot of the Stans ( Kirgistan etc), and all 3 made it in one piece, top speed of about 83 mph, they do have a video of them doing the rally, also Bennetts insurance have done a test ride on them with a write up and apart from a little fuel mapping problem which Earnshaws (UK dealers) has promised to fix, it went well, hopefully at the end of the month I will be going to them for a test ride with a view to purchasing one for a ride from UK to Bulgaria.ReplyDelete
Did you get your test ride?
I'm thinking of buying one of these and would really like some feedback if poss.
It's originally a Zongshen ZS250GY-3 (RX3) seen here: http://en.zongshenmotor.com/?q=node/892ReplyDelete
