SENKE ALIEN MONSTER SK250-K TEST RIDE REVIEW
Since SENKE’s Alien Monster SK250-K hit the market, it has been popular among customers and motorcycle enthusiasts. In 2020, SK250-K entered the German, French, British, Polish, Spanish, Russian and other European markets, and received a good response and good sales results.
SK250-K is available in basic and ABS versions. The ABS version is equipped with Bosch ABS. The aluminum rear fork is a good match to the titanium gray body.
SK250-K is jointly produced by SENKE and a European partner. Its design concept comes from the alien soldiers to present a sci-fi feeling.
The bike is equipped with a highly-recognized 250cc engine in the market–a water-cooled four-valve DOHC engine, with built-in balance shaft and a maximum power up to 19.5kW/9,000rpm, as well as Bosch EFI. It also features excellent vibration suppression and reliable quality.
The brakes use high-end floating calipers: opposite four-piston calipers and lightweight brake discs. Bosch ABS ensures riding stability along the way.
The front face looks fierce and cool, with five-piece LED headlight. In addition, it is equipped with full digital LCD meter and Bluetooth sound system, LED taillight, 15.5L fuel tank, large grid cooling tank, and Tim sun anti-skid tires (front 110/70-17, rear 150/55-17). Besides the aluminum alloy rear flat fork, there are many other aluminum parts.
The test road is a new semi-closed asphalt road. The body vibration is not obvious at the beginning, and the engine is relatively quiet. Hitting the gas pedal, it will respond with a hormone-pumping blast.
There are two riding modes: economic and sport modes. In sport mode, the gear is smoothly shifted from the 1st to 2nd at 3,000rpm. It exceeds 100km/h in about 8s in the fourth gear. Riding comfort is one of SK250-K’s highlights. Thanks to the 1,410mm long wheelbase, SK250-K is quite stable and comfortable to ride.
The bike overtook easily on straight roads and at corners. Due to limited road conditions of the test ride, the maximum speed was 120km/h, but there was still room to go up.
Switching from the sport mode to the economic mode, the body and throttle felt even milder. The economic model is adequate for daily riding purposes.
When reaching a bend during the test ride, counter steering was easily and smoothly completed in 3rd and 4th gear.
Riding the ABS version of SK250-K is a relaxing experience. With the sci-fi feeling of appearance design, reliable CFMOTO engine, Bosch EFI and ABS, and aluminum rear flat fork, SK250-K makes you the most confident and attractive man on the road.
