Introduction

The Zongshen 200 GS is a sports bike belonging to the sports level entry / beginner sports bike (200cc - 500cc displacements). It is categorized by its manufacturer, Zongshen, Chongqing Group as "Sport touring bike". Zongshen Chongqing Group is one of the five largest motorcycle manufacturers in China. They have partnerships with Harley Davidson and Piaggio. [ [http://www.zongshenmotor.com Zongshen main site] ]

The bike is sold under different brand names:

The 200GS is best known for its low cost in price, maintenance, and mileage, while having a sporty look and high endurance for very long trips. Such traits allowed the bike to be used as a daily economical sports ride for commuters like an ordinary executive motorcycle, which is difficult with true sports bikes with displacements of over 600cc to 1000cc, due to extra maintenance costs and high fuel expenses. The Zongshen GS series however, are difficult to maneuver in dense traffic (esp. for a small built rider) due to its 165kgs weight. But such disadvantage gives the 200GS high stability on highways.

However, due to the economical aspects with its single-cylinder 4-stroke engine, the bike cannot be expected to go past its 75mph topspeed without reaching red line. The bike, therefore, should not be used for Moto GP racing. It only lives up to its category of a Sport touring bike for travelling, and a safe sports level entry bike to prepare a racing aspirant or newbie for the higher displacement sports bikes.
