Initially, this bike was launched by ZXMCO. At that time, to reduce the cost, the importer launched the bike with low-quality engines. As a result, a lot of the bike owner’s had issues with the bike. However, to resolve the issues, the engines were imported from abroad.
The bike was again introduced in Pakistan by Rapid Rides based on European standards. The quality of the bikes which Lifan is exporting in Europe is the same as the Lifan bikes being imported now in Pakistan. Not only Rapid Rides sell the bike, but they also have spare parts for sale and have launched a service center as well.
The bike has a powerful 200cc water-cooled engine and six-speed transmission.
This bike has a 2nd generation engine which was introduced in Feb 2019. The main difference between the 1st generation and 2nd generation is the crankshaft which has significantly improved in terms of quality. This has resulted in improved engine rotation and cooling technology.
Furthermore, there have been changes in the gearbox and clutch place system. Overall, performance has improved greatly.
The engine’s displacement is 198cc and produces 17Hp. The wet weight is 149.7 kg. All the 150cc bikes have a wet weight between 135 to 150. This means that this has the same wet weight as that of a 150cc motorcycle, but this gives us 50cc more in displacement and 3 -4 hp more. This explains why the top speed is 130 to 140. The bike has excellent throttle and pick.
Gearbox and brakes
The gearbox has six transmissions. The bike has soft gears and doesn’t require much force. The same goes for the clutch.
The bike has excellent stopping power. Both front and back have a disc braking system. The front has a dual-piston caliper disc, and rare has a single-piston caliper disc.
