175kg kerb weight? That's not as bad as I'd thought. 16L tank is very good. Starting to like it more now.

After seeing one in the flesh this morning it wouldn't surprise me if it turned out to be the same engine as used by AJP in their liquid cooled 250.

One of the adventure bike mags. could be testing this bike next week, and I'm looking forward to a test ride soon after.

There are plans for a bigger wheel version to allow for more tyre choice.

Looks interesting to me Rod ;)
Whilst there been problems with the little ccm were any of them engine related ?

I dint realise this was a 250 -

A mini GS with a 250cc engine rideable on an A2

As someone who had to restrict my GS as I only had a A2 when I took up biking this would have been interesting.

- they really have found a niche here.

I think you'll find the entire bike is made by Zongshen, CCM just ship them in, prep them and apply some CCM stickers ;)

Unlike the new CCM GP450 that is built in Bolton (with an engine from Kymco in Taiwan)
