Definitely NOT a Goldwing

Is this China's most blatant copy to date?

AT a glance you'd be forgiven for thinking this is a Honda Goldwing... on detailed, closer inspection you'd still be forgiven for thinking this is a Honda Goldwing.

But no, it's not and any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

These lo-res images are in fact the design patents for a new electric bike from Chinese manufacturer Jiangsu Xinri.

So that distinctive flat six engine you can see isn’t an engine at all, but a set of plastic covers hiding a battery and electric motor.

We’ve covered the most blatant Chinese copycat bikes on Visordown in the past but if this design actually reaches production it’s our new leader.
