FANCY A CHI­NESE?

Awe­some deals from WK make a new bike more af­ford­able than ever

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Far East­ern man­u­fac­turer Cf­moto have dis­counted the price on some of their al­ready bar­gain­priced bikes, mean­ing you can now have a new model for the price of a 10-yearold Ja­panese equiv­a­lent. Branded un­der the name of UK im­porter WK Bikes, thou­sands of pounds have been slashed from the RRP of the 650TR tour­ing bike, the 650i naked and the learner-le­gal ZS125 road­ster to clear stock ahead of the ar­rival of a fresh batch of Euro4 com­pli­ant ma­chines in early 2017. WK deal­ers in the UK are now sell­ing the Chi­nese brand’s flag­ship tour­ing bike – the 650TR – for as lit­tle as £2999, a sav­ing of £2200 on the orig­i­nal RRP and one that puts it in the same price bracket as a used, 10-year-old Honda NT700V Deauville.

The 69bhp par­al­lel-twin tourer boasts a stylish fair­ing and 60 litres of lug­gage car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity in its hard, wa­ter­proof, lock­able pan­niers. It also comes with two glove­box com­part­ments and a 12v power point, an ad­justable screen and KYB sus­pen­sion. The 649cc par­al­lel-twin en­gine is a very sim­i­lar de­sign to the mo­tor in­side Kawasaki’s ER6, and fea­tures Mag­neti Marelli fuel in­jec­tion with 69bhp and 45.72ftlb of torque.

All WK bikes are sup­ported by a ded­i­cated UK im­porter, so there’s full spares back up, as well as a two-year parts and labour war­ranty. Cur­rently there isn’t much in the way of fac­to­ry­fit ac­ces­sories, but other than a pair of heated grips, the 650TR is so well spec’d that you wouldn’t want for much ex­tra any­way.

Avail­abil­ity is lim­ited with only a few 650TRS cur­rently left in UK deal­ers, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to bag a bar­gain. A list of deal­er­ships can be found at www.wk­bikes.com
