Firstly, thank you to David for adding this category.
I did not want to raise any hackles by asking for Lifan to be added to such illustrious company as Kawasaki, BMW, etc. I personally feel that there is a niche group of us (mostly newbies?) who are interested in the less-expensive motorbikes.
I hope this category can become a place to share our experiences in purchasing, repairing (I have already done so), experiencing, and more.
Good luck to all the Lifan riders.
I purchased my orange Lifan with credit card in mid-November: 47,380 baht which gave me the bike, a helmet, and 2 shirts. Also included is registration and basic insurance.
The owner speaks acceptable English and was very willing to answer any questions I had.
There were no orange models in stock, but lo-and-behold, they had the plastic in stock and told me they would have my orange bike ready in a few hours.
Minus the plastic parts
Putting on the lovely orange bits
