Cheap GPX mid-sized motorcycles

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

GPX released new medium-sized motorcycles recently, and imo they look good.

 

The Raptor 180cc, naked. Fitted with YSS suspension and Good quality tires (Vee rubber) for 59500 thb

 

 

and the Legend 250cc (twin) for 79500 thb.

 

Glad to see them improving their quality, and they claimed parts are easily available for GPX now, although for its price it raises some suspicion..

 

GPX claims to be the sole Thailand made motorcycle brand. 

 

might be a fun 2nd bike, or is it a bad idea?

The Yamaha Mslaz is 90,000 baht and the Kawasaki W175 and the W250 are both single cylinders and way more expensive.

 

I was interested in the 150GR before, until I saw how small it is. 

 

The gentleman 200 on the other hand is absolutely an eye candy

The GPX range are great vfm machines....

 

But its fear of un-reliability and future resale values that put me off...

The GPX Gentleman 200 are being sold for 25-30k used that it could also be a fun 2nd bike ot play with.

 

I agree that it is not wise to use this brand as your main bike, but then again I saw many GPX Demon running around town for years now and it seem theyre all doing okay. 

 

If resale value is a consideration, forget getting GPX.

Thai reviews of the Gentleman mention gear selection problems that a lot of owners have had problems with.

I had a Gentleman 200, it was a good bike according to the price. Yes, absolutely eye catching and easy to move in the traffic. I felt like a cfrom the past" bike because of its technology, but the good thing is that it's very easy to maintain and fix.

The handling on the mountain roads was just OK, right now I feel WAY more confident in my CB300F that I felt ever with the Gentleman.

Regarding reliability, I had no problem with it, everything worked as expected, no mechanical issues. Aging began to show as fading black plastic in the handlebar controls, but I always park under the sun (my condo haven't shade parking)

I sold it at 38K฿ with 15000Km and almost 2 years old.

Thai reviews of the Gentleman mention gear selection problems that a lot of owners have had problems with.
I had problems with the Neutral, many times it was alm impossible to set N,and in the Thai FB group many others complained about the same.

It had an easy and cheap solution: just enlarged the piece that links the gear box to the pedal, a 30 minutes 200฿ work in a local custom garage, and the gear became soft and precise.

The new Gentleman Racer has that piece longer than the original Gentleman, so I think they realized about the faulty design.

For a Thai bike of this type I only heard good things about the Stallion 400cc,  it's solid built and have some power under belly too...

 

I sat on it once in the shop and it feels comfy and not small like others which are built for small Thais...
