Lifan showed some nice looking motorcycles on the Chinese motorcycle show. If we look back on how long the Lifan LF250-19 toke from concept to production model we cannot stop wondering how long Lifan will wait to start impress us with models like... they showed at the Chinese motor show...
Are there any news about the Lifan LF250GY-2 (Cossack 250) or other new models Lifan is offering?
I saw pictures of a motard version of the Cross200. But it didn't look exactly like the Cross200 with street tires. There were some differences, e.g. the rear rack was missing on the motard version, different exhaust, ...
Is the motard a different model? What model number does it have, so i can google it?

We have one Lifan LF250GY-7, which is a liquid-cooled supermotard style 250cc motorcycle, it’s possible that you seen that one as one of our warehouse workers does sometimes small downtown Bangkok deliveries on it.
But I not think that Lifan (Thailand) will soon bring that model on the Thai market, some rumors that the Thai Lifan factory is not trusted enough to produce liquid-cooled engines… Also, the Lifan LF250GY-7, with all its standard aftermarket accessories (mostly suspension) would maybe too costly to be considered a Kawasaki or Honda alternative.
On the other hand, the Lifan LF250GY-2, which is based on a 250cc air-cooled engine would probably fit perfect in the Thai motorcycle market. Currently Lifan is focusing its attention for the LF250GY-2 to the South-American market. And I expect that the next region of attention is South-East Asia.
The Lifan LF250GY-2 will not be that more expensive than the current LF200GY-5, but for the exact pricing we have to wait what Lifan Thailand decide. The second picture attached is the Lifan LF250GY-2 (Cossack 250).

Thanks for the quick respond.
This was the bike i meant with "motard version of the Cross200":
It is named "Lifan X-plore 200 M". But i can't find any more information about it. Looks really nice. It seems to be based on the Cross200, but there are some differences, exhaust, enging side covers, missing rear rack ...
Is this bike officially available? Why does Lifan not put it on their website then? Seems to be a nice bike
