What a rip off!

Eider Motors has put together a new model named ZF Kymco, taking parts from the bins of Benelli TNT 899 and Honda CBR 250R.

Looks like the Indian motorcycle maker is drawing too much inspiration from Chinese way of ‘designing’ vehicles.

Eider ZF Kymco is expected to launch in 2015 June, hoping to compete with KTM Duke 200 and Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. It will be powered by a single-cylinder 250cc liquid-cooled engine, managing max power of around 22 bhp.

Salient features of Eider ZF Kymco 250 include triangular headlamp, upside-down front fork and tank extensions with turn indicators, which are more-than-just-inspired by Benelli TNT 899, and a long list of components very identical to those in Honda CBR 250R. Including, alloy wheels, engine cowl, front & rear disc rotors, fuel tank, tank protector, rear monoshock, exhaust can with silver cover, tail lamp assembly, rider and pillion split seats, rear fairing / cowl, split grab handles and foot rest stays of rider and pillion.
