    If you're talking about the Yamaha FZ16 (153,0 cc), I saw one in the showroom of the Yamaha dealer with a price tag of 150.000,00 some time ago.

    RebelBiker, haven't seen a Rouser at a dealer in Dgte. If anyone sees one, please let me know.

    Not really 90%, the Motoposh shares the motor, wheels and forks, a few small items but little else. The Motoposh AKA (zongshen, Lifan etc) hase a external box frame unlike the Motorstar, different tank, exhaust, seat, instruments, plastics.

    Lifan also markets/builds this bike, (LF 200B) as well as few other Chinese firms, all made by Zongshen? maybe, but I think they are farmed out under license or something, this is "China Inc." we are talking about.
    The motor is a stroker TMX clone but with a balanced crank, pistons will not swap, but heads, gaskets and most seals will.

    Anyway lots of advice here, just go sit on one and decide if it fits you, feels right, and suits your budget. In Dumsville can't go wrong with Rusi's service on China bikes, the dealer is as important as the bike in my opinion.

    You can spot the Rouser (220cc) @ Gud's trading in Real ST. near Rejoice.
    On the highway going north when you passed by the airport on the left side after a few km's there's a small mall (forget the name) in which is also a motorbike trader who has many bikes in the showroom among which a Rouser.

    Thanks RRB, Motoliance has one also but I am looking for the 200. It is my understanding the 220 is made is China and not nearly as good as the 200. There is a beautiful Vulcan at Motoliance for p600,000, if anyone is interested.

    Wow!

    :D Interested in the bike Pat BUT 600.000! Where will you get decent use for that cost? That's like buying 12/13 yam 75cc's. Did YOU win the Lottery:D

    Jack, I could no more handle a Vulcan than I could my 200 kilo ex-wife pictures below. I was pointing that in case anyone wanted to see it. In fact I'm not sure if I can even handle a Rouser 200 but I may give it a try if I find one.

    oh yes, its surprising what "china inc." can do huh :D ive reading up on lifan and zongshen and these are the 2 giants who're making it big out of china... and some of us bikers might be surprised to know as well that the japanese brands flaunting their bikes here now have a considerable amount of "china" in their bikes!

    btw, i own 2 rusi bikes. theyre really handy to have specially when you want to tinker around and modify... befriend the staff and that reliable service stretches farther! :wink:

    I had not heard anything about the Rouser 220 being made in China. The Rouser, which is a Pulsar in India, comes in both 220 and 200 from Bajaj. I do have an email address of a factory rep, who is a great guy and very helpful on Kawasaki/Rousers, and also a no b.s. honest guy.
    If anyone wants his email address just PM me.
