Mash Motorcycles - New 650 Trail Bike
on: September 09, 2020, 09:17:19 AM
Saw this article about a new UK distributor for Mash Motorcycles, and liked the classic look of this new 650 Scrambler/Enduro/Trail Bike..... not many details though, 163kg dry weight and a 830mm seat height.  No power details.  Although it's a French company, the bike is made in China, so possibly a lower output copy of an old Japanese engine?

Looks the part though!!

bad quality, bad after-sales service, bad ageing...
The 400 model is a nightmare, the 250 is more reliable.
