  • Previously heard about the Brembo brakes(inpic brembo ,ok) SC Project exhaust, Pirelli Supercorsa tyres and Ohlins suspension is it still remains when launching soon?those are from the prototype i think..but if with 30k below price ,hope they can belanja some part exclude brembo caliper,its there already i think.

    • I doubt it. It’s like their marketing trick. Look at QJMoto SRK600, they previewed with brembo breaks, when it launched, there were no brembos

      • QJMoto SRK600 has Brembo breaks, but only in China market. If this spec imported here, the price would be Jack up to 40k+ ballpark which will on par with better Japanese brand like Honda CB650R. Currently China 1st tier motorcycle brands tend to offer competitive cheaper price with “OK” spec attempt to enter already saturated foreign markets.

          Yet the 700CLX sports can come with full brembos. And one that looks suspiciously like stylemas.

          That 30k price is another of MForce’s likely promo price….for all its new launches. It would creep up a few K.

  • Such a nice 450cc, 50hp with 37mm front fork? If 41mm would be good.
