Xianglong JSX500i Overview
The concept cruiser motorcycle ‘Zeppelin‘ shown by Indian motorcycle manufacturer TVS at the 2018 Auto Expo has not been made yet.
However, the Chinese company has started selling motorcycles that look like the Zeppelin concept.
Meet the Xianglong JSX500i, the TVS Zeppelin inspired or we can say a copy.
Chinese motorcycle maker Singlong has launched the JSX-500i, which looks like a Zeppelin concept.
Now, this motorcycle is very popular in the media.
The headlights, fuel tank, seat, and rear of the JSX-500 manufactured by the Chinese company are similar to those of the Zeppelin.
Its side panel can also be seen to be the same as Zeppelin. Its radiator and engine coil are also similar.
The JSX-500I has a USD difference.
However, TVS had given a golden USD to the concept of Zeppelin. The Chinese company has provided a different design for the wheels and exhaust on the motorcycle.
It has all the LED lights, preloaded mono-shock, and double-disc brakes.
The JSX-500i is powered by a 471 cc water-cooled, twin-cylinder engine. It generates 44.87 PS of power and 41 Nm of torque.
It has a 6-speed gearbox and a top speed of 150 kilometers per hour.
The TVS Zeppelin idea, on the other hand, included a 220cc single-cylinder engine with a 1.2 kW regenerative electric motor and a 48V Li-ion battery.
It also came with a semi-digital instrument cluster, bar-end rearview mirrors, and 17-inch alloy wheels with front and rear 110/70 and 140/70 tyres, respectively.
Xianglong JSX500i has a length of 2,150 mm, a width of 890 mm, and a height of 1,180 mm.
