“shineray XY 125- 14 IIE”

Written on: 18/07/2012

I have owned a shineray XY 125- 14 IIE road bike for five years and it has had a new battery and some new bulbs. It has been good quality for the price, when buying a Chinese bike it is important to get one that has been put together by a reliable mechanic and importantly had its electrics tested and installed by someone who knows what they are doing. From what I have read it is also best going for the more expensive Chinese bikes. Mine is mainly alloy and plastics and has a Honda engine… Read Full Review

“I have to say I was very wary of cheap chinese bikes,...”

Written on: 14/11/2010

I have to say I was very wary of cheap chinese bikes, i used to ride a 600n bandit but needed something for the winter earlier this year (we all remember how bad that was in england). Only had a few issues, Speedo stopped working as did the rev counter, headlight failed massively but replaced it with a twin lamp setup which was perfect and only cost about £18 on ebay!! However the best part about this crappy little off roader was how well it held itself in the snow, granted when i bought it… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2010

Had to sell my car to pay bills so i needed a cheap runaround.Saw shineray on ebay and thought i would take a chance.Battery is rubbish and the bike will not tickover at 1500 rpm.The engine also drops of at 2000 rpm and stalls or eventually picks back up.When riding i can feel the engine missing a lot also seems to be burning too much fuel as it keeps popping.
All in all i wish i had the cash for a japanese bike especially when it comes to the manual,the one for shineray is a bit vague to say… Read Full Review

“I bought my Shineray about 6 weeks ago - and I have...”

Written on: 27/05/2010

I bought my Shineray about 6 weeks ago - and I have had no real problems with it. I only use it on the road, so no major bumps and jumps - perhaps this helps it stay together! Though I guess if you throw a bike around - things will rattle and potentially drop off. It starts first time with both electric or kick; and idles well at about 2k. Great value and good fuel consumption for quite a big 125cc (about 100miles to a tank - possibly a touch more). They look good, in fact a few folk have… Read Full Review

“Terrible build quality. Faced with having to quickly...”

Written on: 18/09/2009

Terrible build quality. Faced with having to quickly pick up a cheap bike for transport to a new job I had to opt for a Chinese bike. The Shineray XY125VE was the first one that presented itself within my price range. I wish I had stuck to using buses. The build quality is awful. The electrics fail repeatedly, even if they didnt fail how many bikes do you know have the hazard lights come on when the brakes are applied? The engine has even moved backwards in the frame twice within 2 weeks. I can… Read Full Review

I found this review not helpful because...

<br/>he must sell them because no-one that has ever owned a shineray will ever rate it well. scrapped mine because the build and reliability has nearly killed me a few times.

that first man obously knows what he s talking about,kids today dont know nothing about motercycle maintaince and this can put dissadvantaged kids in sad embarrising comprimizing scenarios out on our great open roads ,a bad workman kill blam his tool, i blam the edducation system ,obously iff they study a bit arder they could get a better job and a more expensive byk or even a car,i akknowlage that people who buy have to build these machines themselves challenged below average iq this may present problems when there machine falles around and bad things appen. this i fear is darwins thiory natrol selection and sadly they never get to breed,getting rid of the thick ,up the chinrese byks but may b they should put a health warning on side ,just like they do on fags ,somthing like this --Please put this byk together propely or it might just kill-- you, but that wont work coz they cant read?

I can honestly say I've never had a bike so good as the Shineray XY125VE. its fast its big its pretty heavy yet even a new rider will be throwin it around corners after an hour of riding it an its dirt cheap I was going to buy a second hand bike for £700 but could only find shoddy broken ones at the time so thought I'd risk buying it an I've never looked back its a fantasic bike… Read Full Review
