Serious Player: Chinese Motorcycle Lynk Co

New Chinese manufacturer and sister brand Volvo has announced its entry into the motorcycle market and introduced its first product, the Benelli Hybrid.

The new Chinese naked has a lot in common with the Benelli TNT 600 and is painted in stylish black and yellow colors. The similarities between Lynk & Co and Benelli are a little confusing, but there is a logical explanation. The fact is that the Chinese company is a joint venture between Volvo and Geely (the Chinese giant is also the parent company of Volvo), that is, there are already close ties with Benelli, since in 2016 Geely bought a majority stake in the Italian brand from another Chinese company, Qianjiang, which has owned Benelli since 2005. Ultimately Benelli and Lynk & Co are owned by the same company.

Features of the first Lynk & Co motorcycle:

  • 600cc 4-cylinder, DOHC
  • torque 54.6 Nm @ 10,600 rpm
  • power 85 HP at 11,500 rpm
  • two-channel ABS? digital tidy with analog tachometer
  • Brembo brake discs
  • inverted telescopic fork
  • monoshock

Lynk & Co was founded in 2016. The first car was released in 2017. The brand has established itself well as a manufacturer of quality cars with a pleasant interior. In addition, the brand tries to work directly with customers, avoiding dealer costs. Time will tell how successful the bike is.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
