Cyclone, this name might not be familiar to our bikers. Rather, it is a premium brand from leading Chinese manufacturer Zongshen. The RA9 is a concept car that was showcased at last week's EICMA2021 event. And it is interesting and connected to the manufacturer Aprilia in Italy.

First of all, I have to tell my friends that Zongshen has a good relationship with the Piaagio group from Italy. The Chinese label has been granted the rights to manufacture and distribute Aprilia's 125-2502cc class of small cars in China as part of the development of the RA9 that will link the relationship between the two companies.

The Cyclone RA9 is a concept car based on a bold Street Roadster design, with direct links to two currently discontinued Aprilia models. It adopts the structure and engine kits from Aprilia Shiver and Dorsoduro, which utilizes a two-section tubular steel construction at the front and cast alloy at the rear. This structure appears on both Aprilia models. The swingarm has been adjusted to be Single Sided.

In terms of power, it is clear that the exterior layout is based on the engines of the Aprilia Shiver and Dorsoduro, but with disparities in capacity. In 2007, the Shiver and Dorsoduro will be equipped with 750cc engines and expand to 896cc on the Shiver 900 and Dorsoduro 900, and the 2011 top-of-the-line Shiver 1200 and Dorsoduro 1200 use a 1,197cc V-Twin, but in the RA9 body, the engine has a similar capacity of 987cc. with super bike class Therefore, it is likely that the manufacturer will develop a new engine to meet the EURO5 standard.



There isn't much information on the RA9 yet, but data is used in terms of body performance, with the RA9 producing 112 hp at 9,500 rpm, 72 ib-Ft peak torque at 7,500 rpm, and It has been stated about the ready-to-ride weight of 215 kg, which is often the information that most manufacturers don't offer to promote the concept car.

In addition to the launch of the new concept bike at this event, Cyclone is also presenting its new product, the RX850, a touring-ADV based on the RX6 that featured a 650cc parallel engine approved by the manufacturer. Made in Norton from England. That can be produced and sold since 2016, the past by bringing this engine to expand to a capacity of 842 cc, which is an innovation to watch a lot.


Not only that, there's also a Norton V4-powered full-fledged sports fairing motorcycle on display, which is pretty interesting. As we all know that Norton today is in the hands of the famous Indian brand TVS. which has been acquired since 2020, where Zongshen still holds the original contract with the old company And it is possible that within that contract will allow Chinese brands. Able to build a 1200cc V4 engine correctly. Or it's possible that the company will use the Norton 650 engine principle to build on the front two cylinder V4 engine, using reverse technology from the engine. Two twin pistons to become their own V4.


However, Zongshen plans to create a new scooter brand under the name Gilera, one of the modern scooter manufacturers Piaggio has owned since 2007, and possibly an official revival of the old brand in China. Zongshen is an official building and distribution partner in the near future.
