The folks at California Scooter Company have announced several accessories that are available for the new RX3 adventure bike.
The RX3 Cyclone adventure bike is a rebadged Zongshen, made in China, that’s supposed to be on the Canadian market in 2015 under a direct-to-consumer retail model – no dealerships necessary. In the US, the bike is selling for $3,495 and offers something no other manufacturer has in their lineup – a quarter-litre adventure bike. Read more about it here.
But adventure bikes need more than long-travel suspension and knobbies. Most ADV riders want creature comforts to keep them happy on long rides, so CSC has announced a line of accessories towards that end. They’ve got heated grips, centre stand, maintenance stand, magnetic tank bag, dash-mounted 12v outlets, spotlights and larger aluminum luggage.
That’s an accessory list that equals what’s available from the factory for some of the 650-class dual sports, and far outstrips the factory offerings for any 250-class dual sports. Without seeing them first-hand, it’s hard to know what sort of quality to expect, but if they (and the bike) hold up, this lineup will go a long way towards establishing the RX3 as a legimate ADVer.
Pricing isn’t up for the accessories yet, and we also don’t know the Canadian MSRP for the bike. However, we’re expecting more updates soon.
