CSC is quickly expanding its model range. In late 2014 we tested the 250cc adventure-touring RX3 Cyclone, and gave it a favorable review. A year later CSC announced the dual-sport TT250. We’re still waiting to see the TT250 in the flesh, but have been told it shouldn’t be much longer. Today, CSC announced a third 250cc motorcycle, the very sporty looking RC3.

The RC3 appears to have some nice features for a $3495 motorcycle including an adjustable fork and shock, digital instrumentation, and accessory power outlet. Comparatively, Honda’s CBR300R retails for $4399, while Yamaha’s YZF-R3 is $4990. Like the TT, the RC3 is currently filed under the “coming soon” moniker.

From CSC:
CSC Motorcycles announced today that it is importing the RC3 250cc sportbike, and it is offering the motorcycle for a very limited time at the special introductory price of $2895.

CSC Motorcycles is the exclusive North American importer of Zongshen motorcycles, including the successful RX3 adventure touring motorcycle and the TT250 dual sport motorcycle. CSC typically introduces new motorcycles under its “Don’t Miss The Boat” program, with pricing designed to attract new customers and large scale market attention.

“We’re extremely excited about the new RC3 motorcycle,” said Steve Seidner, CSC Motorcycles President, and Chief Executive Officer.   “This is a very capable sportbike, with the proven RX3 liquid-cooled fuel injected engine and ABS braking.   The fit and finish on these bikes is world class.   Everyone who has seen our preproduction sample has commented on how good the bike looks.    Our test riders report the top end on this thing is nothing short of amazing for a 250.  The RC3 is going to upend the 250cc-class sportbike market.  It’s that good.”

The CSC RC3 features a full fairing, rearset pegs, inverted forks, and 17-inch cast wheels and radial tires front and rear.   The motorcycle has a 4-valve 250cc engine producing 24.8 horsepower, a six-speed transmission, liquid cooling, and fuel injection.   It is fully compliant with all Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board requirements.   The suspension is adjustable front and rear.  Digital instrumentation includes a tachometer, speedometer, odometer, trip meter, clock, fuel level, gear indicator, and temperature gauge, along with a feature that allows the rider to select either a blue or red background digital readout background.

CSC Motorcycles’ unique path to market includes extreme (and often international) adventure rides to demonstrate reliability, fully-illustrated online maintenance tutorials, a free Service Manual with every motorcycle, a comprehensive accessories line, always keeping all parts in stock, and unparalleled customer support.   “We’ve built the business on treating our customers like family,” Seidner said.  “Our objective has always been to provide superior value and the best customer support in the business.   We’ve always put our riders’ satisfaction ahead of all else.   Our customers tell us the CSC motorcycle ownership experience is stellar, and they regularly post positive comments about us on the Internet forums and on Facebook.   It’s one of the things I enjoy most about CSC.  We’re very proud of our relationship with our customers.”

The CSC RC3 motorcycle is available in red, blue, orange, and white.  The motorcycle has a 2-year, unlimited mileage warranty.  CSC Motorcycles is located in Azusa California.  For more information visit cscmotorcycles.com.
