However, some oriental companies remain that they have not lost the habit to “peek at the paper of the neighbor at the desk”, the classic student who is among the first in the class in terms of design and technique. It is certainly nothing new to take a motorcycle model, disassemble it, study it, and create a real clone. In recent years we have brought you various situations: from the 44 HP Ducati Streetfighter to the Yamax Z400, the shameless copy of the Z1000, the Moto S450RR, the Chinese clone of the BMW S 1000 RR, to the Coco Pony 150F, a Baby Ducati Scrambler with 14” wheels and last but not least the Cangyun XS 500, the copy of the Honda CMX 500 Rebel.
It’s Honda’s turn once again suffer the umpteenth “made in China cufflinks”, with Jiajue CN 800 Zhen e Jiajue CNR 800 Rui, respective copies of CB 650 R e CBR 650 R however, equipped with a 796 cc in-line four-cylinder engine capable of delivering 117 HP and 93 Nm of torque.
Although the manufacturer Wuyi Weisenke Power Technology claims to have created this unit internally, observing the crankcases, the layout of the units and the external shapes one immediately realizes that they coincide with those of the Honda engine, also four in line but with a displacement of 649 cc.
Obviously the lines of the two Jiajue models have been designed along the lines of the Hondas, with the almost identical fairing of the sports car and the round headlight with side panels, tank and 4-in-1 collector of the exhaust for the Naked. Similar also as regards the technical equipment, with Kayaba upside-down forks, Nissin brake calipers supervised by dual-channel ABS and luci full-Led.
We told you about the CB650R clone this summer: in fact, there is a second model, the Viselike, which shares the same engine and part of the chassis with the Jiajue CN 800 Zhen.
