Don't know if this is a repost, but China want's to get in the market as well.
According to a report on MCN
, Chinese motorcycle manufacturers like Loncin
are now working on bigger, sportier motorcycles – the kind which has never been made in China earlier.
China has, according to some estimates, been the largest producer of motorcycles since the mid-1990s. Currently, more than 20 million motorcycles are made in China every year and Chinese-built scooters and motorcycles are increasingly being exported around the world.
Until very recently, Chinese manufacturers
were only making small-capacity commuter bikes and scooters. But now, according to the MCN report, they are working on bigger bikes, starting with 600s. Loncin, Zongshen and Jialing are said to have developed 600cc inline-fours, with which they may soon be taking on bikes like the Honda CB600F, Yamaha FZ6, Kawasaki ER6n, Suzuki GSR600 and Hyosung GT650 Comet.http://www.fasterandfaster.net/2008/...on-bigger.html
