    Last winter I tracked down a Chinese copy of our beloved TW and a similar clone of the Suzuki - I posted it on the old board



    This morning I cannot find the old board and for the life of me cannot remember the brand name of the copy



    Can anyone help? I am thinking about a companion for my TW and thought I could save a few dollars

    Looking at the Zongshen site you definately see some interesting designs!







    This might be the one you thought is comparable to the TW200







    If the Chinese could improve their quality, they'd be a real contender. I really like some of the designs they are showing here and certainly the prices are great too, but if you bought one of these how would it hold up and where could you get parts and service?

    My brother-in-law bought one a few years back, took about an hour to put it together, 24hrs to charge the battery and it fired right up after about 30 seconds. Not a bad bike for 1080 bucks delivered to his house. After about a year the fuel line got so brittle it would turn to powder if you pinched it. replaced that and it was fine. the battery was not very good and getting parts for it might of been a real pain but I think the parts are easier to get now a days. You might want to check the Thumpertalk forums under chinese bikes for more info.

    i have the zongshen sierra 200 which is a close copy of the tw. i can tell you these are really good bikes.i have about 11,000 miles on mine and it runs better than when i got it. the engine parts can al be replaced with yamaha if need be. the electrics can be ordered from zongshen. the Q-link brand 200cc motorcycle uses the suzuki engine and from what i read from forum members at chinariders.net they sound very reliable. both bikes are built solid and would prove reliable transportation with mixed trail riding.





    spudrider is an excellent source of info on the zongshen sierra motorcycle and could probably answer any questions. he can also be found at www.chinariders.net.



    hope this helps. shawn
    not a TW owner but i play one on this forum.

    I'm surprised we've not seen the Koreans getting into motorcycles. Look what they've done with Hyundai and Kia. As the quality of these machines improve, the Japanese will need to be looking over their shoulder.
