Visitor Rating of Loncin GP 165
The world of motorcycles is quite interesting. Designs are reiterated and inspirations are drawn from other bikes. There have been cosmetic clones of multiple bikes in the world. However, most of these clones are not always exact copies, as they are unique in their ways as well. The Loncin GP 165 is somewhat of a cosmetic clone of the CBR 150R Thai edition.
Loncin Motorcycles is a Chinese company which is registered as Longxin Motorcycle Industry Co. Ltd. Loncin motorcycles are affiliated with BMW Motorrad as their engine and part developers. The Loncin GP 165 is made with the same design as Loncin GP 150 and the Loncin Gp 250. It has made quite a name for itself for being a bike of quality.
The Loncin GP 165 is made with a mixture of LED and Halogen lights. The headlight consists of a projector Halogen light for the low beam and basic Halogen lights for the high beam. The headlights would have been much better if they were LED. The taillight is an LED unit. The headlight looks very beautiful and has a very aggressive yet standard look. The taillight is also made with a very attractive design.
The Loncin GP 165 comes in two colors just like the Loncin GP 150. They are:
The white Loncin GP 165 comes with red decals while the black one comes with green decals. The decals are smartly placed to enhance the overall cosmetic appearance of the bike.
The Loncin GP 165 comes with a giant exhaust muffler. The muffler was designed to look very muscular and sporty at the same time. The bike sounds quite average. The bike also gets a split seat setup just like any other sportbike. The split seat ensures privacy for both the rider and the pillion.
The Loncin GP 165 has a very attractive instrument cluster. The instrument cluster contains an analog rev counter, with the rest of it being digital. The digital screen contains the speed, a gear position indicator, an odometer, and a fuel gauge. The gear position indicator is a very useful feature, which many bikes still don’t get.
The Loncin GP 165 comes fitted with a clip-on handlebar, which makes the bike much more aggressive to ride. The bike is a rather short bike with a lower seat height of 780mm. But regardless of the low seat height, the bike has a high ground clearance of 175mm. This makes the bike completely immune from most speed bumps in town. The bike also has a fuel tank of 16liters, which may seem enough, but will be further discussed in the engine section.
The length, width, height, and weight of the Loncin GP 165 are 2030mm, 720mm, 1120mm, and 145kg respectively. The bike is on the heavier side, but this is so that the bike can hold on to the ground better during braking and accelerating. The bike also has a wheelbase of 1348mm, which makes it compact, but the wheelbase is also long enough to be stable at corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The Loncin GP 165 comes with a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 2-valve, and 164cc engine. The engine is carbureted and air-cooled. The engine pumps out around 18BHP of power at 8500rpm. This bike however may not have the best mileage of the bunch, as it is expected to have a mileage of around 32-38kmpl on average.
The Loncin GP 165 has a wet multi-plate clutch system. It has a 6-speed gearbox, which matches its description of being a sportbike. The bike is expected to have a top speed of around 130kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Loncin GP 165 has a dual disc brake setup. The dual disc setup significantly increases the braking performance of a bike. The bike however does not get ABS or CBS. However, the front disc has dual caliper, which makes it very good at emergency braking situations.
The Loncin GP 165 has upside-down telescopic suspensions at the front, and the rear has a mono-shock suspension. The front suspension being USD, may not respond very well to the bumpy roads of Bangladesh. However, the rear suspension may perform significantly well on bumpy roads.
The Loncin GP 165 has alloy wheels. The front and rear wheels have 110/70, and 140/70 tires respectively. The front and rear tires are both perfect for the bike. As it is a sportbike, riders will tend to lean while cornering, hence a thick 140 section tire at the rear perfectly matches the personality of the bike.
The Loncin GP 165 is targeted towards the young sportbike crazy generation. A youngster riding the bike to university will love it. Even a young adult getting on this bike on the way to the office will enjoy it. The Loncin GP 165 is a near-perfect sportbike at a very cheap price. This will also attract a lot of people who are looking for a good-looking bike for a price that won’t put a hole in their pockets.

Overall, the Loncin GP 165 is a powerful 165cc sportbike and is very much commendable. The Loncin GP 165 has made quite an impression on the Bangladeshi youth for being very attractive and ticking all the boxes a young rider has.
