Lifan motorcycles are a line of
motorcycles from Lifan Corp. The company has been on the Shanghai stock exchange since 2010 and
reported annual sales of 750 million euros. They have been selling a line
of dual sports bikes, ATVs and scooters but the company is now expanding to the
motorcycle market and have released a few models thus far.
First, what makes Lifan motorcycles
stand out? The motorcycles have a fine balance of performance, beauty,
and affordability. This is apparent in three of the Lifan motorcycles
that will be available to order – the LF 250 B/ Royal 250, LF 250-19 / Naked
250, and the LF 400 / King 400. Let’s take a look into each of these
models and look at the unique features as well as the specifics.
The LF 250 B is the entry Lifan
motorcyle. The motorcycle has a sleek but classic look. The bike is
available in a beautiful burgundy or black paint. The engine is a
4-Stroke, V-Twin-Cylinder. It is a 5 speed manual clutch bike with enough power
to cruise on an open highway. The max speed is 80 miles per hour which
should be enough for most casual riders. Overall, this bike is very
affordable and quite beautiful.
The LF 250-19 has a sports bike feel
it. The engine is a 4-stroke, V-Twin-Cylinder as well. The transmission
is a 5 speed manual clutch with more torque than the LF 250
B. If speed is what you are looking for, this is a great
model to consider. The top speed is 115 which means that it has a 25 mile
higher limit than the LF 250 B. If you’re looking for a sports bike with
an edgy look, this may be the right bike for you.
Finally, there’s the LF 400 Lifan
motorcycle. This bike also has a classic look but a more modern feel than
the LF 250 B. The engine is four-stroke and double cylinder. It is
also a 5 speed manual clutch transmission like the other two models. This
bike has the highest maximum power and torque out of all three bikes. The
top speed is at 95 mile per hour and is a step up from the LF 250 B.
These are the 3 announced
motorcycles. One thing that you may need to know is that the LF 250 B is
not legal in California.
The other two bikes have not been released yet but are expected soon. You
can try to contact a dealer near your area to see if they are available and if
you can preorder them.
These bikes are only available through
Lifan dealers. In order to find a local dealer near you, you will have to
