“Shineray Xy250 Gy2”

Written on: 28/12/2016

Not a difficult review to write on this bike. Never having been a fan of cheap made bikes the Chinese brands I've recently come across over the years are no better than those ten years ago. We've all seen those bikes that have self destructed and rusted away to nothing. There's enough of them selling on both eBay and other sites requiring the so called easy fix?? My experience was being drawn to the Shineray XY250 gy2 at a dealer who thought they were worth a go? My DRZ400 got stolen and after… Read Full Review

Ha I owned one of these. Purchased second hand for £850 I used it as a work hack for two years hammering the life out of it. Quite unbelievably it held together and when I sold it it had 23k miles on it. It's still going, some youngster has tried to turn it into a KTM using plastics, decals etc. looks good and will fool the not so wary eye. If it still lasts another year or so it has to be the bargain of the century. Who'd ever have thought the Chinese could actually build a bike properly lol.

Avoid at all costs. These bikes are no longer available in the UK and a reliable source tells me the model is no longer being made by the factory? Further investigation with a mainstream Chinese spares importer tells us the model has been a nightmare for owners who cannot get spares anywhere. Recommended to buy one of the more common 250 bikes likes of Sinnis, Pulse and the range of SWM and Mash bikes. At least these have good reliable spares back up. Says it all really. Oh and for those thinking Honda engine parts will fit? Think again. Only a few parts will fit the Chinese engine, the similarity is there, but barely a few parts will interchange. Moral of the story is. Spend your hard earned cash on a branded product no matter how good a copy looks.

I had the misfortune to buy one of these. Fortunately for me I paid very little for it used off a work colleague. On a plus side it looked good and did what I wanted from it until the inevitable problems originating from poor quality engineering kicked in. The misfortune is you cannot get parts anywhere unless you source from overseas!! So in just over twelve months i can say i've had my moneys worth from it as its now starting to give problems. I needn't drone on though because if you pay cheap you invariably get cheap.

“Shineray XY250-GY-2”

Written on: 19/07/2016 by danny45 (1 review written)

I purchased a Shineray XY250-GY-2 SM as it looked good and for a Chinese manufactured one seemed well screwed together and cheap. However don't be fooled into thinking your getting a bike which will impress your mates. It looks cool, in fact not dissimilar to a KTM and the motor is loosely based on a early Honda CRF250!! It has decent suspension and brakes. Only problem here is its never going to be anything other than a cloned hybrid. Ok KTM plastics allegedly fit? But Honda engine parts do… Read Full Review

It is a nice looking bike but a throw away one. I couldn't get anything for mine. The whole project looks to be on the right track from China. Modern looks and mechanics, but why bother importing into the UK only to drop the model a couple of years down the line.
Mines had a Pulse Adrenalin 250 motor shoe horned into it and it kinda works ok. This bike does have a decent chassis if nothing else. But probably best to buy a Jap bike.

I've ridden one of these and found it to be on par with anything Japanese produce. Yes its a blatant copy of KTM rolling chassis and Honda's NX1 250 engine, but its well screwed together and apart from the silly seat height its an ok bike. My mates owned it for 3 years and nothing has gone wrong with it in 18000k miles of hard use. Lets face it. Its half the price new of anything Japanese, so why not give it a go. Read the Australia road tests, they rave this bike. Surely they all can't be wrong?
