The ever popular adventure segment looks primed to receive another new entry in the shape of the all-new Voge 900DS.

Spotted in production ready form in the Far East and published on Motociclismo, the 900 DS is the latest addition to Voge’s growing model line-up that currently comprises the 500AC, 500DS, 500DSX and 650DSX.

While the finer technical details of the 900DS remain scarce, the model retains a similar design to its range counterparts with its chunky - if understated - aesthetic, wire-spoke wheels, beaked front-end and LED headlight, while it also features a dash-mounted camera.

While the branding on the fairing alludes to this being a ‘DS’, with that nomenclature reserved for the more tourer style models in Voge’s range, it is more likely the adventure-styled DSX moniker will be used on this ADV model.

Under the skin, Motociclismo speculates the 900DS could make use of engines found in the BMW F900 or F850 ranges by virtue of a engine building partnership between the German firm and Voge’s parent company Loncin.

The Voge 900 DS is the latest mid-to-large adventure model from China to land recently, following on from the CFMoto 800MT and the Qianjiang-developed Benelli TRK 702

Beyond its fellow Chinese counterparts, the Voge 900DS will also be looking to poach sales from more expensive class leaders like the Triumph Tiger 900 and KTM 890 Adventure.

Who are Voge?

Though there are numerous Chinese-built motorcycles on the road in the UK now, many do so under pre-existing European branding and occupy the low capacity segment of the market.

Indeed, to date there have only been a small handful of Chinese firms setting up shop in Western Europe offering mid-range or large capacity models. With the challenge being led by CFMoto - which is in the midst of a major range overhaul - Voge is hot on its heels after making its UK debut in 2021.

A spin-off ‘premium’ brand created Loncin - one of China’s foremost motorcycle manufacturers - while Voge appears content with its image as a value-orientated brand for now, it might have something a little more exciting up its sleeve in future.

Indeed, in 2019 Loncin and MV Agusta entered into an agreement that will see the Chinese firm construct MV’s out of its factories. In return, MV will attempt to inject some of its famed design flair into future Voge models.
