The California Scooter Company has announced its plans to import the RZ3 naked bike to the US.
CSC is probably best known for its RX3 adventure bike, a 250 cc ADV machine that’s sold through direct orders, instead of through dealers. The RX3 sells in Canada and the US, and CSC also sells the RC3 sport bike in the US, as well as the TT250 dual sport.
Now CSC is bringing the RZ3 naked bike to the US market. It seems to use the same liquid-cooled, four-valve counterbalanced single-cylinder motor as the company’s previous offerings (the TT250 uses an air-cooled single). Like CSC’s other bikes, it’s made in China (Zongshen is the original manufacturer). It will sell for $3,495 when it hits the US market; no word yet on whether it comes to Canada. Right now, CSC is offering free shipping and setup for US customers. Remember, like CSC’s other bikes, these will be sold direct from the distributor, with the customers responsible for arranging maintenance and other work.
