Chinese automotive manufacturers ripping off designs from prominent international models is very well known. Their choices of counterfeits are usually premium automotive brands. What you see here is a shameless copy of the Royal Enfield Himalayan motorcycle with minor with tweaks here and there. Meet the Hanway G30 – a 250cc adventure tourer from the People’s Republic.
While it may look identical to the Himalayan the Hanway misses out on the Himalayan’s torquey long stroke single cylinder. The Hanway G30 is powered by a 249.2cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, churning out 26.5PS at 9000rpm and 22Nm at 7500rpm. The company claims a mileage of 32.2kmpl and a top speed of 128kmph, decent enough for a bike of its class. The engine nestles inside a double-cradle frame, linked to a 35mm inverted front fork with 120mm wheel travel (200mm on the Himalayan) and a rear monoshock with a 42mm stroke.
Unlike the 21-17-inch spoke wheel setup in the Himalayan, the G30 uses a smaller 19-inch front and a 17-inch rear unit. Interestingly, the brand offers optional spoke wheels that are compatible with tubeless dual-purpose tyres.
As far as features are concerned, G30 gets a twin-pod LCD instrument console with a full TFT screen, LED headlights with DRL, a 5V 2A charging port, a 19-litre fuel tank and dual-channel ABS.
Prices of the adventure tourer have been pegged at CNY 17,280, which roughly translates to INR 1.92 lakh making it cheaper than its original inspiration.
