Regular visitors to Visordown will know we have run the odd article shining a damning spotlight on motorcycles that while Chinese in physical origin, aren’t exactly coy in hiding their blatant ‘inspiration’ of existing Japanese or European models..

Shameless – occasionally comical – though some are, however, there are a growing number of considerably more convincing attempts at an original idea, with the new CFMoto 700 CL-X and slew of Italo-Chinese Benelli offerings well received enough to suggest a prelude of quality machinery being en route.

It makes every new unveiling – at what seems to be a different Chinese motorcycle show every week – something to keep an eye on.

For the most part the new models are either wacky concepts, modest runarounds or shameless ‘inspired copies’ but every now and then you get one that piques curiosity enough to shift our opinions.
