Looking at a DongFang motorcycle called the rtg-250 there seems to be little to no info on it. The only videos or anything I could find were on the sportbike style bike. It looks pretty cool I'm just worried about stuff breaking when it's going 60mph down the road. Now this is a street legal bike to my knowledge. I figured motorized bike engines and Chinese motorcycles are pretty much the same so I thought I'd ask. Price tag is $1,700 and of course crappy parts could be replaced. Better chain, grips ect. I like how it looks but wouldn't want to buy something that is ruined in a month. In the description it says something about "economical oil exhaust 4L/100km" does this mean they designed the engine to burn oil? strange. If anything I could keep the frame and tank and upgrade most of the parts and even the engine. I'm almost certain it's a copy engine since the Chinese love doing that. It is 223cc all I could think of is a TTR-230 clone possibly. Top speed is reported at 62mph. The other bike I'm interested in is the Kymco Spade 150. I have heard good about Kymco and that they make engines for Honda. It is more expensive though at $2,999. Imagine a Grom and a cafe racer combined with a more powerful engine that's pretty much the Spade. I am looking for something I can ride around and have fun on that doesn't go 30mph all the time. Looking for a bike I can take the safety course on.
