Hailing from across the northern border with Thailand is GPX Racing, with the newly launched 2019 GPX Racing Legend 250 Twin priced at 79,500 Thai baht (RM10,784). paultan.org previously reviewed the GPX Racing Demon 150GR and 150GN, as well as the GPX Racing Gentleman 200.
Coming into the full quarter-litre class, the Legend 250 features retro naked sports styling with all the design cues you would expect to see from a motorcycle of the 70s or 80s. Carrying an oil-cooled parallel-twin displacing 234 cc, the Legend 250 did not come with any power numbers, but something like 20 hp would be reasonable.
Power goes through a six-speed gearbox and chain final drive and the engine is fed by GPX Racing’s own EFI system. Fuel is stored in a large for its class 14.5-litre fuel tank – most of the Legend 250’s competition use 10-litre fuel tanks and the whole package weighs in at 154 kg, with the instruments housed in a single round binnacle.
Unlike it’s competition, the Legend 250 uses twin disc brakes on the front wheel, clamped by dual-piston hydraulic callipers while the back wheel has a single disc stopped by a single-piston calliper. Suspension is with upside-down telescopic forks in front and twin YSS gas-filled shock absorbers at the back, adjustable for pre-load.
The two-toned retro styled seat on the Legend 250 is 790 mm from the ground, making it accessible to almost all riders and lighting is LED all round with three colour options available – red, gloss black and matte black. There was no word as to when the 2019 GPX Racing Legend 250 Twin might be coming to Malaysia.
Meanwhile, the 2019 GPX Racing Raptor 180 is a naked sports bike in true hooligan style, coming with a single-cylinder air-cooled 180.8 cc mill. Fed by GPX fuel injection, power gets to the ground via a six-speed gearbox and chain final drive.
Coming with a claimed weight of 135 kg, the Raptor 180 carries 11.5-litres of fuel in the tank and GPX Racing says the bike will do 110 kmh. LED lighting is use throughout and inside the cockpit is a full LCD meter panel.
Seat height is a full-sized motorcycle 820 mm with suspension using upside-down forks in front and a YSS gas monoshock at the back. Braking is done with single discs front and rear on 17-inch wheels and there are four colour options – violet, red, black and white.
