My father in law is living in Hua Hin and has had a Honda Phantom. The bike got stolen and he would like the same model again. Could you inform us if this model is still available at a dealer somewhere or if a model like this phantom is on the market. We tried the Honda dealer in Hua Hin but without succes.

With best regards,

Karssies

Only on second hand market: www.mocyc.com/market_all.html?query=Phantom#main-clist

You should check out the Keeway Dorado (250cc Twin) or the Keeway Superlight (200cc Single).

They seem to be good bikes and looks similar to the Honda Phantom. The Dorado has a powerful engine.

The Keeway Superlight 200 is probably the closest compared to the Honda Phantom TA200, of course with current motorcycle rules a 250cc is the largest motorcycle called a small engine motorcycle.

And as Fred indicated you can buy a second hand Honda Phantom TA200, but parts get more and more difficult to get. You can buy a Keeway Dorado 250 or a Lifan LF250B Cruiser which is basic the same idea but equipped with V-twin 250cc engine.

If you have some time to decide what to buy you can wait for the Keeway Blackster 250i or the Keeway V-Blade 250i which are both V-twin cruiser similar to the Keeway Dorado 250 but than equipped with Electronic Fuel Injection...

Nice! I did not about the Keeway Blackster 250i or V-Blade 250i ... are they both coming to Thailand soon?
I saw some videos about the v-blade, it looks so much better...

I guess that only one will be introduced in Thailand, which one I have no idea. Here are pictures of the Keeway Blackster 250i and the Keeway V-Blade 250i.

I looks more likely that the Keeway Blackster 250i will be sold in Thailand, according to this Thai forum post:
toetae-rider.com/index.php?topic=5035.0
It will have more HP and torque from the Dorado 250, 19.2 HP and 18.7 NM torque.

That sounds good, the Keeway Blackster 250i is a good modern motorcycle for the entry cruiser market...

I'm wondering when Lifan will introduce new models in Thailand....
