That JH600 has suspisously looking Kawasaki side cases and cylinder. Hmmmmm. Very interesting.

I doubt if they produced a motor from scratch. At least it doesn't look like a Honda 90 powerplant...

I rode a coupla-year-old JH around parts of Chongqing. It was more adequate than impressive. Suspension was underdamped, the gearbox wasn't great and motor wasn't especially powerful, but its value-to-dollar ratio at an estimated $4000 is pretty good, if it were to be sold here.

Thats too bad. I wish we would see more big singles over here. Not like dual sports and dirtbikes buy roadsters and sportsbikes.

I mean look at the KTM Duke 690

Yea, i know. I've heard their build wonderfuly and use top notch parts but still $11k seems like... well excessive for a 650 thumper... id like to see them make some that are within "normal" prices.
