New Chinese Adventure Touring Motorcycle For 2019
« on: December 27, 2018, 04:47:06 PM »
CSC Motorcycles has a new Chinese made adventure touring motorcycle to add to their lineup for 2019 called the RX4. The RX4 is powered by a water cooled, single cylinder 450cc engine with 6 speed transmission and a claimed horsepower of 40.2 and a top speed of 95 miles per hour. The bike comes with aluminum pannier bags and aluminum top case and is priced at $5895 plus an incoming freight, assembly and inspection charge and documentation fee of $400. You can purchase the RX4 online and shipping is free to any location in the lower 48 states. The RX4 includes a 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty.

I'm not sure how the warranty works because you won't find any local dealerships for the RX4. The RX4 is sold only at CSC Motorcycles one store in Azusa, California. If the RX4 breaks down you either repair it yourself, find a local shop willing to do the work, or send it back to CSC Motorcycles. Does the warranty include shipping cost? Not sure, but the warranty through CSC Motorcycles should reimburse for most costs you incur. It would be wise to check on the warranty with CSC Motorcycles before buying.

The RX4 has some impressive features like adjustable windshield, 5.3 gallon fuel tank, dual front disc brakes, skid plate, engine guards and ABS. It even comes with a USB and 12 volt charging ports located on the dash and ready to use. Underneath the seat are connectors for any electrical accessories you might want to use with the bike, and yes, they are ready to use. See the full RX4 specs listed below.

I don't know what to think of the RX4. My first thoughts were its a bit pricey for a Chinese made motorcycle. Its in or near the same price range as the 2018 Kawasaki KLR650 ($6,699), Kawasaki Versus-X 300 ($5,499), Honda XR650L ($6,999), Honda CRF250L ($5,149), Honda CRF250L Rally ($5,149), Kawasaki KLX250 ($5,349), Suzuki DR650S ($6,599), Suzuki DR200S ($4,649), Suzuki DRZ400S ($6,749) and BMW G310GS ($5,795). All these different brand motorcycles come with dealership support and plenty of aftermarket accessories to improve whatever type of riding your into. Each of these brands are well known and resale shouldn't be a problem when it comes time for a replacement, but I can't say the same for the RX4. I just don't know enough about the performance of the RX4 to make a fair comparison of how it performs against the other brands. Is the RX4 a serious motorcycle or is it more like those Chinese gas powered mini bikes you see at your local hardware store every year around Christmas time? Its certainly priced like a serious motorcycle, but I suggest reading forum posts, rider reviews and doing your research before buying......
