250 cc motorcycles have firmly entered our lives due to modern design, balance of quality and price. A modern consumer can hardly determine whether a motorcycle is Chinese or Japanese, and a potential buyer no longer thinks about which motorcycle to buy, choosing between a new Chinese motorcycle and a used 10-year-old “Japanese”, choosing the first option. The Catalog of Chinese motorcycles is constantly expanding, and prices have stabilized in 2019, and along with the growing demand for motorcycles among the population, there is an increase in the two-wheeled fraternity throughout the country, which has a good effect on sales in motorcycle shops. But before buying a motorcycle, every future owner has a question; “what Chinese motorcycle to buy?” or what to choose; “Chinese motocross bike”, “Chinese chopper” or “Chinese sportbike” ???
The following is an overview of Chinese motorcycles with a volume of 250 cc, power from 15 to 25 hp.
Engines . First of all, you need to consider the technical data and engines that are installed on 250cc motorcycle models.
The most popular and common motors are; 165FMM, 166FMM, 167FMM, 169FMM and 170FMM air-cooled with or without balancer shaft, with two valves per cylinder. The engines are very good (of Japanese origin, installed on Japanese vehicles in the 80-90s), it is almost impossible to overheat, the resource is long, subject to regular oil changes. There are also varieties of installed engines with four valves per cylinder and water-cooled, like 170MMF. Dynamics, of course, increases resources too, but the cost of such an engine is much higher, which significantly affects the price of the motorcycle as a whole …. Otherwise, the technical stuffing is usually the same; telescopic fork, jet carburetor, 5-speed gearbox, disc brakes. Every year, Chinese motorcycle manufacturers adapt their equipment with new technological solutions in the form of LED turn signals and brake lights, ventilated brake discs, an electronic instrument panel, etc., and very soon on stock motorcycles, we will see a gas-oil fork and, no wonder , – injector. The Chinese motorcycle industry is developing rapidly, which has a good effect on the demand for motorcycles around the world….

Suppliers from Wels followed in his footsteps and design, organizing sales of a chopper called Trophy in the country., but with a different engine (170FMM) and original military coloring. Not wanting to lose on sales of choppers in the country, in 2015 a chopper model from X-Moto appeared on the market – Road Star 250 , with the same design as the Trophy, but in interesting colors, like matte black and matte green.
