BRITISH firm Herald Motor Company has made its first 400cc model, adding to its current line-up of 125s and 250s.

Detailed specs have yet to be revealed but the 400cc single is expected to go on sale next year. It features a ribbed seat, knobbly tyres and a trellis frame.

It’s been in development for ‘quite some time’ according to Herald, importer of Chinese engines and components which are then assembled in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

Herald has also announced two new 125s for 2018, the Scrambler and Café, both making 9.7hp.

Now where have I seen that engine somewhere? I do recognise it. There is nothing new under the sun - especially not from Chinese manufacturers!

Absolute kack. Looks like they couldnt be bothered...

Lots of good looking pieces that totally don't go together. What were they thinking? "Okay, we start off with a trellis frame like a Ducati Monster. But we'll only put a 400cc single, so it won't have enough performance for highway use. Then we put on a retro cafe-bike seat so that we can assume a tuck while being passed by delivery vans. And add some passenger pegs to go with that solo seat. Use some adventure bikes tires that would work with a 1200cc class machine, but make the front one bobber-proportion to keep steering heavy, slow, and numb. Now we'll add a low pipe and cast wheels so it can't be ridden off-road. Perfect!"
