20 Mar 2021: This Chinese bike looks like a Royal Enfield Himalayan copy

Chinese automaker Hanway has launched the G30 adventure bike in its home country. It is offered in two trims: Standard and G30-X.

The motorcycle is almost identical to the Royal Enfield Himalayan, featuring a rounded headlight, a raised transparent windscreen, and spoked wheels. It draws power from a 249.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine.

Here are more details.

Design: The bike houses a twin-pod LCD instrument cluster

The Hanway G30 sits on a duplex split double-cradle chassis and features a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a stepped-up seat, a smartphone charging port, a rounded LED headlamp, and a raised windshield.

The bike packs an LCD instrument console, and runs on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoke wheels wrapped in dual-purpose tires. It has a 19-liter fuel tank.

Fact: It is powered by a 249cc engine

The Hanway G30 is powered by a 249.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that generates 26hp of power at 9,000rpm and 22Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. The bike can clock a top-speed of 128km/h and delivers a claimed mileage of 32.2km/l.

Safety: Disc brakes on both the wheels ensure safety

To ensure the safety of the rider, the Hanway G30 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for better handling on the roads.

Suspension duties on the bike are taken care of by 35mm telescopic forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.

Fact: Hanway G30: Pricing and availability

In China, the Hanway G30 adventure motorcycle carries a starting price-tag of CNY 17,280 (approximately Rs. 1.92 lakh). For the uninitiated, the Royal Enfield Himalayan begins at Rs. 2.01 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
