Congrats for the licence, it’s always a happy time …
Looking for a secong hand, you’ll have to find a first hand … and that is not made of 600. I had the same wish when I first came to China. Then I bought a very cheap 250 and am now planning to buy a X5 (400). I’m not even sure a 600 is a good idea in China, but that’s another story ..
Second hand 600 is possible, if not legal … or just look for a 600 Benelli, you’ll find that.
3rd Ring Rd.. I started there, ended up buying a brand new one.
I guess cd.58.com or word of mouth would be better …
There are a few motorcycle markets in the city, as well as a large WeChat group for expat motorcyclists. Add me on WeChat and I can invite you there. We also collected some of the most commonly-asked questions and put that information onto a website: CycleChina.info
We’re looking for a 400 to 600cc but not something sporty so we can manage long journeys in the West of Sichuan.
Charlie, I’ve added you on WeChat and will have a look at CycleChina!
Copycat what’s you WeChat ID?
I think we might try visiting the market if it’s still open. We’ve found one 600cc here in Ya’an but it’s a very sporty bike. The best we’ve seen here was 250cc but we’re thinking we might have more possibilities in a big city like Chengdu.
Hi mate, did you manage to buy a big bike ? Where did you find one? I’m in chengdu and looking to buy a motorbike when I get my licence sorted. Do you know for any shops where I could find such a bike?
