    This bike will have a detuned LAMS version but specs arent yet available.

    Its known as the Keeway RK6 and the Benelli BJ600 I think in other parts of the world, but with a slightly different look.
  2. Those specs look kinda lams to me.

    If you want effortless performance, or fun, you want 40hp more and 30kgs less.
  3. There is a review of it in AMCN last fortnight from memory (or maybe the one before that). Seems there is a Chinese local market version and a rest of the world version with up spec parts.

    Review was good and stated that the construction was as good as Japanese mainstream bikes (take that for what its worth).

  4. Bit heavy for a 600, what do they want for it?
  5. Bit under $10k
