HANWAY Motorcycle Furious 250SC Static Review
With the rapid development of the new motorcycle riding culture, many new brands and models emerge in the domestic market. Generally, this is a good thing, because the industry is vitalized. HANWAY is one of the new brands.
HANWAY is indeed a rookie in the domestic market, but in fact it has been engaging in the motorcycle industry for more than ten years and mainly targeting the overseas markets, thus accumulating substantial heritage and technical strength. Facing the new differentiated market in China, HANWAY starts with two 250cc products, a street bike and a retro bike. Facing the domestic 250cc market in which many brands have been locked, what strength will HANWAY show? Let’s first look at the retro model–Furious250SC.
Retro bikes are popular in the domestic market recently. No matter domestic or foreign brands have introduced retro models covering all levels. Furious 250SC seems to take on a design language of BMW Nine T, or Honda’s “neo-sport cafe” style, which integrates modern elements into the retro style. It has a high degree of integrality.
Lights — Furious 250SC uses LED lights. The headlight features a retro round light design (LED+ dual lens high/low beam), which is quite different from its street version. The round light looks more integrated and delicate.
Instrument — a round HD digital instrument panel displays speed, rev, fuel, and other necessary information clearly even under strong light. It is small but delicate, which is harmonious with the whole bike. The round design also insists on the retro style.
Handlebar — the handlebar is designed with a traditional layout; the touch of the functional buttons is good. There are double throttle cables and transparent oil cup.
Fuel tank — the tank is marked with the HANWAY logo and made in a sandwich structure; the lines, joints and corners are exquisite. Its color is optional with red, blue, gray and black. The paint process is good; the overall plane segmentation and color contrast design are unique. Furious 250SC’s 20L fuel tank is the biggest in retro bikes to deliver a super long cruising range.
Protection plate — the asymmetrical protection plates adopts an interesting and harmonious design. The numbers on the plate can be customized to greatly improve playability. HANWAY has designed a 5V2A USB on the left plate, very useful.
Cushion — the cushion adopts a stitching design, with good texture, comfort and skidproof. The keyhole under the pillion is designed with the helmet lock function.
Engine — Furious 250SC adopts the aced 250 power from CFMOTO, which is a single cylinder 4-valve DOHC engine, with an actual displacement of 249.2cc, a peak power of 19.5kW, and a maximum torque of 22N·m. This is a reliable mature power platform, and HANWAY has further adjusted it for better middle and low torque performance. Furious 250SC’s curb weight is only 145kg, lighter than CFMOTO’s 250NK(151kg).
Frame — Furious 250SC has a two-cradle frame to ensure better body strength and reduce engine vibration.
Shock absorber — inverted front shock absorber, with 35mm diameter +120mm travel.
Brake — front 280mm and rear 240mm single disc brakes, with standard SAFE dual-channel ABS, Timsun tires, all provide you safety and confidence.
Rear fork — Furious 250SC adopts aluminum alloy rear fork which is rare seen on the other bike with the same level, and whose strength, style and cost is much higher than the ordinary fork. It is also the important reason why the bike’s body weight is only 145kg.
It is a brave first move for HANWAY to target the hot and competitive domestic 250cc street bike and retro bike markets, reflecting its strength and confidence accumulated from the foreign market over the years.
Furious 250SC is a competitive 250cc retro bike with high-profile styling and various mainstream features. (Source: www.newmotor.com.cn)
This is a great looking bike and has a lot going for it. A “real world road test” would convince a lot of doubters as to the standard of the Hanway Furious 250 and how it would fit into many different markets across the world.
