Comparison of Four 300CC Retro Motorcycles Including VOGE 350AC
QJMOTOR Flash 350
In terms of power, the QJMOTOR Flash 350 will be equipped with a V-type twin-cylinder engine and a more stylish belt drive, which gives full play to the cruise performance of this model.
Compared with the QJMOTOR Flash 300, it has more power. It has the actual displacement of 343CC, the maximum power of 24KW, and the maximum torque of 30N·m, so it has a better power performance.
QJMOTOR Flash 350 is slightly larger than the Flash 300, with the body length of 2225mm and the wheelbase of 1520mm, bringing a more comfortable riding experience and a bigger riding space. In addition, it has a 16L fuel tank.
As for the configuration, there is seldom something novel because the belt drive is usual for this kind of models, not to mention the dual-channel ABS, LCD instruments and LED headlights. However, it is very cost-effective considering its price and displacement.
VOGE 350AC is equipped with the actual displacement of 322CC, a maximum power of 31kw/10500rpm and a maximum torque of 30N.m/9000rpm. It is said officially that its acceleration time of 0-100km/h is 5.5s in sports mode, and that of 0-100km/h is 6.1s in normal mode. According to the test riding, Guorui (72kg, 177cm ) takes 6.0s to accelerate to 100km/h in sports mode while Sanqi (50kg, 168cm) takes 5.6s to complete it. In addition, the top speed measured on the closed road is 156km/h.
The 322cc engine outputs the maximum power when it is at 10,500rpm. It is a typical high-speed engine. There may be a phenomenon that the gear cannot match the speed when it is below 4,000rpm in the fourth gear. However, the throttle of the engine can be adjusted to reached 12000rpm quickly.
In terms of braking, the 350AC is equipped with a front 298mm single spray disc with a one-way dual-piston caliper, and a rear 240mm spray disc with a single-piston caliper.
After several riding experiences, the braking force begins to appear when the front brake handle is rotated at 1/3
the intervention of the braking force is still relatively peaceful,
and after 2/3, the entire braking force begins to fully intervene, and the braking effect is obvious.
The ABS system of the rear brake has already started to intervene to prevent locking when the braking force is 1/3, so the rear wheel ABS relatively can be adjusted quickly.
In terms of power, the GK350 will be equipped with a brand new self-developed high-compression ratio single-cylinder water-cooled four-valve EFI engine. The compression ratio of this engine has reached 12.3:1, which is relatively rare among Chinese self-developed models. Therefore, it has a maximum power to 29KW and a maximum torque to 32.8N.m, which is very attractive. It is referred preliminarily that it will have a good performance, but it is unknown about its durability.
From the perspective of the configuration, in addition to the current TFT instruments and LED lights, the GK350 will be equipped with a sliding clutch, the exclusive dry and wet tires, the enlarged brake discs, Nishito brakes, the aluminum alloy rear balance forks, two-way express USB charging interface, second-generation high-quality handle switch, 2.5-generation keyless control system and other practical configurations.
In addition, the GK350 adopts a high-strength frame, and applies the vacuum wheel hub. It is equipped with the original integrated bumper, a compact design and a 17L fuel tank, which means that the GK350 will be easy to control and its comfort will be guaranteed, with a good endurance. The actual fuel consumption of this model is of importance for the overall performance because it has a high-compression ratio engine.
HONDA WING CB300R
HONDA WING CB300R has 10.1L fuel tank and a good battery life, so riders won’t be worried about the commuting between cities. The design is very practical.
In terms of shock absorbers, the front shock absorber adopts SHOWA 41mm non-adjustable shock absorbers, and the rear shock absorber adopts the oil-air separation pressurized shock absorbers.
The safety of riders can be further guaranteed with 296mm floating disc with four-piston radial calipers and ABS. In addition, the CB300R is equipped with an IMU system, which detects the inertial changes such as body posture and angle at a frequency of 100 times per second. The rear brake is a 220mm disc with a single-piston caliper.
The size of the front wheels is 110/70 R12 and the rear wheel is 150/70 R17, which belong to Dunlop Supermax series sports street tires. The matte black rim is relatively ordinary, but it is still a retro street bike. In terms of power, WING CB300R is equipped with a 286cc water-cooled single-cylinder engine with a maximum power of 22.4kw/8000rpm, a maximum torque of 27.4N m/6500rpm, and a 6-speed gearbox.
