The Autopotok telegram channel found out that in January a Vehicle Type Approval Certificate was issued for the Benda BD700. A bike with a four-cylinder in-line 94-horsepower engine with a working volume of 676 cubic centimeters will be brought to Russia. The frame and swingarm are aluminum, so the curb weight is only 215 kilograms. The expected price is about a million rubles.
Benda BD700 entered the Chinese market in the second half of 2021, that is, we are talking about a fairly modern model. The cruiser has Brembo disc brakes, mixed-width tires and a stylish body. The engine is naturally aspirated, high-revving: peak power is achieved at 11 thousand rpm! Power is transmitted through a 6-speed gearbox.
The length/width/height of the motorcycle are 2430/880/1110 millimeters, respectively, and the wheelbase is 1720 millimeters. The standard equipment includes adjustable shock absorbers, all-LED optics and an anti-lock brake system. The maximum speed is electronically limited to 180 km/h. In the Middle Kingdom, prices for Benda BD700 start at 46 thousand yuan (0.58 million rubles).
Chinese motorcycle manufacturers also have more hardcore options. A Great Wall bike with a flat-eight (!) engine is coming. The new product has not yet entered production, but rumors about the automaker’s interest in the motorcycle segment have been circulating for a long time.
