The specs for that lop chung make for interesting reading.
Made in China, they appear to be rebuilt by Scooter Bob. Bearings from Germany or Japan, pistons that do not melt, 12 volt electrics, hidden wyring and so on. The black one is $5,800.00, and I am assuming it is used.
73 Guzzi 850 for sale near here for the same amount.
The reviews of the new 500 Enfield were not great. The vibration at higher speed was noted. My XS400 is smoother and faster.
The comments from the rider who has been to India are noted. Admiral Shirley was there last year and reported the same. Even provided many pictures and commentary.
This year she is in Morocco.
