Buyer's Guide > RX3 Cyclone
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
A quarter litre bike fully decked out for adventure? Yep, the RX3 has been a popular item of discussion on CMG with some skepticism about its Chinese origins and lack of dealer support. However, it is built by Zongshen (a giant in Chinese motorcycles) and appears to be getting good reviews, so we're keeping an open mind. As for the dealers, CSC's model is to ship direct to the buyer, delivering it ready-to-ride (just add gas) in a crate to your front door, which is an interesting concept to say the least. The bike comes equipped with hard bags and bash protection and is powered by fuel injected 250 cc liquid-cooled engine. NOTE - pricing shown is in US dollars so you'l have to do a conversion at current rates.
