The Shineray X2, or by it's proper name XY-250-GY-2 is a full size enduro bike and not the most obvious choice for such a trip.
But I like the ergonomics of the bike and it's loud, agile and young appearance.
The X2 has been build by Shineray since 2007 (or so) and has been sold in China and overseas. My research rendered it as a little underpowered but reliable bike.
The frame turned out to be a copy of a KTM EX-C, while the engine is a Honda NX250 copy. A liquid cooled DOHC 4-valve 250cc 4- stroke engine.
After a few weekend trips it got more and more customized into a sort of adventure-enduro bike.
Even with all the luggage on, it's fun and handles well on twisty roads and bad gravel. Comfortable highway speed is around 90-100 km/h. But who wants to ride on highways?!
